AMA Supercross: Victory for Trey Canard in San Diego

Team Honda HRC's Trey Canard posts first premier-class Supercross win at Petco Field

Team Honda HRC turned in a dream performance at round six of the AMA Supercross series, with Trey Canard leading all but three of the 450SX main event's 20 laps to post the first premier-class Supercross win at Petco Field. The Oklahoman showed excellent racecraft in San Diego, emerging from the first turn near the front despite a so-so jump from the gate, making a smooth pass to take an early lead, and then holding off repeated challenges from Ken Roczen to earn the victory. The night also saw Cole Seely top the second heat race, and with GEICO Honda's Eli Tomac winning the first heat, the Red Riders were unstoppable. Tomac and Seely were fifth and sixth, respectively, in the main event.

Canard’s triumph was his second of the young season, the first having come in round four at Oakland. With Tomac’s round-two win in Phoenix, Honda CRF450Rs have topped half of the season’s races thus far.
