"Knowing that I'm only days away from racing again and to be racing my first-ever 450-class Motocross event feels awesome," said Canard. "Since getting back on my bike and training for motos, everything has gone smoothly. I love riding the CRF450R and can't wait to race it outdoors. I've been riding a lot at home in Oklahoma, and I've spent time in Southern California testing with the Honda team. I feel really good and the team has given me a lot of support. However, I expect it will take a little while to get up to full race speed."
