After racking up multiple Supercross and Motocross Lites wins aboard his Honda CRF250R, including winning the U.S. Open of Supercross, Josh Grant transitioned well to the big-bike class in 2009, winning the Anaheim Supercross opener that year.
He went on to earn two more SX podiums and finish fourth in the series points, as well as take two podiums and an overall win in 450 Motocross competition during the outdoor season.
Hindered by injuries during 2010, Josh Grant bounced back to score an AMA Motocross series race win and secure his first-ever X Games Supercross gold medal. All of which stands as proof positive that Grant has what it takes to stand on the top step of the podium when the dust finally settles.
"It feels really good to be back on a Honda, the brand that I started riding during my amateur and professional careers," said Grant, the 2011 Honda Supercross and AMA Pro Motocross rider. "I was riding Hondas back when I was a 14-year-old amateur racer, and I’ve always loved riding Hondas.
"Since I began riding Hondas during my amateur days and during my first days in the 250 class as a pro rider, they’ve always seemed like the perfect fit for me. So coming back to Honda and the CRF 450 R is like coming back home.
"I’ve always dreamed about being a factory Honda rider, and now I’ve made it. My heart has always been set on being here, so I can’t really put into words what this feeling is like and how much it means to me. I just want to get on the track, get down to business and earn some wins."
Indeed, all seemed in the right place for Josh Grant in 2011, although an early season motorcycle racing crash and injury during round two at the Phoenix Supercross has hampered with his sights on a championship this year.
