Honda rider Trey Canard isn’t letting his victory at last weekend’s 2010 AMA Monster Energy Supercross Lites race go to his head. He just doesn’t have the time.
Canard and the rest of team GEICO Powersports Honda head to Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego for the fifth race of the season this weekend, which has given Canard little time to revel in last Saturday’s success.
Trey Canard Speaks…
"I’m trying to forget about it a little and take the positives to the next race," Canard said. "That way you aren’t in la-la land all the next week. I’m just trying to get ready for this next race, and excited to build on our success and try to keep the ball rolling."
"Last week wasn’t a whole lot different than previous weeks, except that I got a good start," Canard said of his wire-to-wire victory. "Getting that good start helps a whole lot. Getting through that first turn is the key.
"There are things you can do (during practice) that help, but nothing compares to the race itself. I’ve just got to be ready to go when I get to the race, make sure my efforts are there during the start, and go from there."
Last week’s Supercross Lites win in San Francisco was the third podium finish in four starts for the 19-year old from Oklahoma. It also pulled Canard closer to the points lead. He’s now in second place, 16 points behind leader Jake Weimer.
Canard added that his foot, which was run over earlier in the season, has healed up and will not be a factor in the San Diego Supercross Lites.
