Rancho Cordova, Calif. (May 22nd, 2010) – GEICO Powersports Honda rider Trey Canard rode to a third place overall finish at the Rockstar Hangtown Motocross Classic, the first round of the 2010 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Series in Rancho Cordova, CA.
Canard turned in a solid morning practice, landing him in the top three in qualifying times. He continued his strong performance in Moto 1, grabbing the holeshot, but eventually fell back a few spots, finishing the Moto in 7th place. Moto two turned out better for Canard, as he battled back through the entire 30 minute Moto to finish 2nd. Canard ended the day on the podium with a third place points finish.
With a great deal of hype surrounding the high level of talent in the 250-class Lites field, Canard proved that he will be one of the top racers to contend with all season. "It was an all-around pretty good weekend for me" said Canard, "My starts were great, but the first Moto definitely didn’t go the way I would have hoped. I rebounded in the second Moto though, which means a lot for me."
Canard’s 2010 team title and personal sponsors include: GEICO Powersports, Factory Connection Racing, Fox Racing, Kicker, MYPLASH Visa and Orbea Bicycles.
