Gannon Audette is returning to Team Legends and Heroes in 2015 to contest the 250SX East Region of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship, the team has announced.
“Gannon is an exceptional rider and person. He proved to us that not only did he have the determination, but more importantly the heart, with nine events, eight shows, seven mains and a finish of 8th place at the final round at the Las Vegas Supercross”, states Alex Moroz, General Managing Partner of the Legends and Heroes Moto Museum tour.
After suffering season-ending injuries at the East Region opener in Dallas in 2012 and 2013, Audette, a two-time Loretta Lynn Amateur National Champion, compeleted his first season of supercross last year, finishing seventeenth in the East Region. Audette’s best finish was an eighth last year at the season finale in Las Vegas, as the team mentioned above.
Audette and his mechanic, Brandon Schultz, will travel to all the East Coast rounds with the Legends and Heroes Moto 1 Museum rig.
