Eli Tomac and Wil Hahn have both signed on to stay at Geico Honda for 2014…and both will be in the 450 class.
Eli Tomac said, “As an amateur, Geico Honda was a team you looked up to. They always had a great 250 team and legendary guys like Mike LaRocco and Kevin Windham on their 450. What we’re doing now is a step in a new direction. It’s going to be like a whole new program. To be one of the first guys to make it happen is really cool. Moving to a 450 is a big enough step as it is, I would imagine that the transition would be a lot harder if you’ve got to learn a new motorcycle and a new team. I won’t have to do that. I already know this inside and out. I’m excited to get started.”
Wil Hahn said,”I didn’t start with them as an amateur, but I feel like I have. I was around the team a lot when I was younger hanging out with my brother Tommy. I’ve always felt love from this team and I’m honored they asked me to ride the 450 for them. They stuck behind me during times when a lot of teams would have let me go. They saw something in me, they kept me on, and it paid off for both sides.”
