Hahn Rebounds From Hand Injury, Equals Best Finish Of Season

GEICO Honda pro Wil Hahn came into Saturday's Supercross race wishing to simply return to the form he displayed before hurting his throttle hand two weeks ago in Anaheim, Calif. After finishing eighth overall in the cutthroat 450 class -- the same result he had in his last full race before the injury -- Hahn left AT&T Cowboy Stadium feeling a great sense of redemption.

"Today was a big question mark for me as to whether I would even ride or not," said Hahn, of nearby Denton. "Luckily, with the great crew behind me with GEICO Honda, my team of doctors, my trainer, and my mom and dad, I was able to ride today.

"It's been two weeks off the bike for me, which is a long time in the middle of a season. I took last week off because my hand just wasn't ready. Two weeks without riding a dirt bike and then come in here and have the same finish I had in Oakland (Calif.) was pretty good considering the cards I've been dealt."

In just his third race of the season, Eli Tomac chalked up another learning experience on the bigger bikes. The 250 outdoor champion continues to search for an agreeable setup for his GEICO Honda and felt as though some progress was made in Texas.

"It was a little up and down once again for me," Tomac said. "Practice was just so-so. I was pretty far off, really. When we got to the evening I felt like I did really well in my heat race and probably rode my best of the day in that race. Unfortunately, I ended up fifth, which was one off the transfer, so I had to go to the semi. I only got fifth in the semi, the last transfer spot, so I had a bad gate pick for the main.

"The start in the main was crazy. Everyone was pushing hard. I got edged out a little wide, and once I was that far back it was a struggle the whole time. The track deteriorated quite a bit from the heat to the main, so it was even tougher. I'm learning more every race, but you always want more when you're not on the podium."

Hahn and Tomac will try their luck again next Saturday at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.
