Eli Tomac is ready for St. Loius

GEICO Honda is reporting that Eli Tomac will return to action this weekend at round 13 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross Series in the Edwards Jones Dome in St. Louis, Missouri.

Tomac has been watching from the sidelines for the past three weeks after aggravating his shoulder in Daytona, one week after he claimed an impressive second place finish in Indianapolis on March 1.

"I really do expect to be at the same level where I was before," Tomac said. "It certainly isn't a given but I expect a lot out of myself, and I hope to get some more podiums before the year is out."

Tomac has three top-10 finishes in five supercross races this season, his first in the 450 class, but has struggled with the shoulder injury since first injuring it at the series opener at Anaheim.

"I'm rested and ready for the last five races of the season," Tomac said. "I'm fully recovered, and I honestly feel better now than when I did at the start of the season. I put in a lot of hard work to come back, riding as much as I can over these last few weeks."
