MXA’S BIRTHDAY BOY: THE MAN WHO WANTED IT FOR HIMSELF, BUT HAD TO WAIT

John Tomac.

John was born on November 3, 1967. John would go on to become a BMX Champion, mountain bike champ and bicycle road race star, but no matter how much success he had on bicycles, including his own mountain bike line, John Tomac loved motocross. When his son was born, John groomed Eli to become the motocross star that he never was.
