American Honda is pleased to welcome Trey Canard and Josh Grant to the Honda Racing team for 2011 to contest both the AMA Supercross Championship and AMA Motocross Championship aboard Honda CRF450R race machines.
For 37 years Honda has amassed an unparalleled record in AMA Supercross and Motocross, winning more championships than any other manufacturer. Canard added to that tally in 2010 by winning the 250 Motocross Championship.
?Both Trey and Josh have shown great speed in the 450 competition,? said Erik Kehoe, Honda Racing Team Manager. ?Trey demonstrated his ability on the Honda CRF450R last year when he filled in for an injured rider and finished with five consecutive podiums. Josh has also shown huge potential in the 450 class since graduating from the 250 class, where he rode with the GEICO Powersports Honda team in 2008. We know he can win, as he has recorded wins in both 250 and 450 Supercross and Motocross classes, and we look forward to seeing what he can do aboard a Honda Racing?prepared CRF450R.?
