The 2015 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship may have ended the professional MX series in the states, but that won’t stop Trey Canard from racing. The Team Honda HRC rider is set to compete in the final round of the All Japan MX National Championship series, to be held at Sportsland Sugo in Sendai, Japan, on October 25.

Canard will race in the IA1 Class (450cc), where his competition will include series regular Akira Narita, a factory HRC rider and 10-time Japanese National Champion,along with newly crowned MXGP MX2 World Champion Tim Gajser, of the Gariboldi Honda team.

Canard will also meet with Honda Racing Corporation engineers for a testing session in Tochigi prior to the race.

“I’m extremely excited for this opportunity to race in Japan,” Canard said. “I’ve raced in Europe before but never there, so it will definitely be a different experience. I’m looking forward to the actual race but more than anything I’m really excited to meet the people that make my job possible. They have supported me throughout my entire professional racing career, so to be able to visit and show my gratitude will be very special.”

HRC Representative Director Keisuke Inomoto also commented on Canard’s visit to Japan “I’m really glad that we have Trey Canard racing in Japan for the first time, at Sugo,” he said. “We’re hoping he can show the young Japanese riders how the AMA riders ride, and that they can learn from him in order to bring Japanese motocross to a higher level again.”

“I’m really excited to see Trey racing in Japan for the first time,” said Sam Mishima, Honda Motorcycle Sports Manager. “I’m sure he’ll have a good time there and hopefully get some good results too.”
