Trey Canard Makes His 2012 Supercross return as Honda riders fair well at Phoenix

Posted:

The second round of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross took place in sunny Phoenix, AZ, was an exciting week for Team Honda Muscle Milk, with the return of rider Trey Canard who missed the opening round in Anaheim while recovering from an earlier injury.

"I am excited to be here, and I'm excited to be riding," said Canard. "It is a bummer for me because I am not right up with the guys that I normally compete with, but overall it was a very successful weekend."

Canard rode a respectable race, finishing in seventh place in both his heat and the main event. Canard's teammate Justin Brayton had a successful heat race, finishing second. Early in the main event, Brayton got tangled up and fell to the back of the pack, but he made up a few positions to finish 14th.

GEICO Honda's Kevin Windham had a notable race, getting a good start in the main and running third most of the way. He eventually was passed by Ryan Villopoto but maintained a fourth-place finish.

Supercross.com/Honda Racing's Andrew Short had another successful weekend, starting with his holeshot and second-place finish in heat one to his sixth-place finish in the main. He was edged out of fifth place after battling with fellow Honda rider Chad Reed with TwoTwo Motorsports.

After setting top lap times during his heat race, GEICO Honda's Eli Tomac got a less than desirable start in the main. Tomac put in an inspiring ride, making his way from 15th to fourth. Along the way he battled with Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda Racing's Travis Baker and Cole Seely. After Baker went down, Seely and Eli Tomac moved past more riders and charged hard for the podium but ran out of time, leaving Tomac in fourth, ahead of Seely who ended up fifth.
