Current GEICO Honda rider Christian Craig will fill in for the injured Ken Roczen throughout the entire 12-round Lucas Oils AMA Pro Motocross series.
Craig will pilot a factory CRF450R alongside Cole Seely beginning with the Hangtown season opener on May 20. Ken Roczen severely broke his arm in the second round of the Monster Energy Supercross Championship..
Craig is not new to the premier class, having campaigned 450s during the 2009 ‰Ûª11, ‰Ûª12 and ‰Ûª14 Pro Motocross seasons. The Californian has a career-best 450 outdoor finish of seventh and is hoping to improve with help from the factory squad.
‰ÛÏHonestly, when I got the call that factory Honda wanted me to fill in, I couldn‰Ûªt stop smiling,‰Û
