Costly crash for Roczen in moto 2!
Monster Energy Cup Victory Went To Eli Tomac: The Monster Energy Cup produced yet another first-time winner.
Since its debut six years ago, no rider has won the race twice and no rider since Ryan Villopoto at the very first race has claimed the $1 million prize for winning all three motos.
Ken Roczen, however, came oh-so close of being that first double winner and the second $1 million recipient tonight, but a spectacular crash in the second race while leading prevented these things from happening. Instead, Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac came away with the overall win after a dramatic final-race showdown at the Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, October 15.
Tomac ended up nipping Ryan Dungey by just one point to take the overall win and a cool $100,000 that went with it.
