Trey Canard Interview
After starting off the 2015 Monster Energy Supercross at Anaheim I in eight place, Trey Canard worked his way up to third, where he would finish. We caught up with the Team Honda CRF450R pilot following A1 SX.
Ultimate MotorCycling’s Andrew Oldar: How do you feel about your third-place performance?
Team Honda’s Trey Canard: I am really happy with how the night went. I am always nervous coming into this race. It was nice to get a good result, leave here healthy, and feel good about the things we have done in the off season.
UMC: You heat race was stacked with fast riders and it looked like you and GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac were battling a little bit. How was that?
TC: I was really happy that Eli (Tomac) and I were up front. We’re really happy with the whole HRC program and everyone that is putting so much effort into the Honda program this year. It is good to have him on a Honda as well and I know he is going to be very fast all year. I was nervous, but I am glad to get this race under my belt.
UMC: How did you feel about the track?
TC: The track was fairly easy. There was not a whole lot to be done that was different. The whoops were pretty tough. I think we are going to see the tracks get more difficult as the series goes on. All in all, I thought it was good.
UMC: Is there anything in particular that you are going to work on after tonight?
TC: I don’t want to overthink it and try and reinvent the wheel. I just want to take what we learned from this weekend and try to build on it.
UMC: What are you most looking forward to about heading to the next round at Chase Field in Phoenix?
TC: It was where I got my first 450 class podium. It’s always a fun place to race. Plus, I have some friends there. I am very excited for that venue.
