Tomac showed speed straight away, topping the first qualifying session and coming just shy of the fastest qualifier. He didn’t get the start he was looking for in the first moto, but he quickly made his way to sixth and then passed his teammate to break the top five by Lap 2. The Coloradan advanced to second at the halfway mark, but there wasn’t enough time to close the double-digit gap to the front, and ultimately finished comfortably in the runner-up spot.
In the second moto, Tomac once again found himself sixth but he was flying through the pack. He set the fastest lap of the race on Lap 4 to claim third, and then closed the gap to the frontrunners. At the halfway mark, he took second after the competition made an error and then claimed the lead a lap later. Tomac went on to score his third moto win of the season with a 3.5-second margin of victory and secured his first overall win of 2022. The multi-time champion continues to add to his legacy in the sport, earning his 28th-career moto win and securing third on the all-time win list in the 450 class. Tomac leaves the fourth round of the championship sitting second in the standings and trailing the leader by 14 points.
