GEICO Powersports/AMSOIL/Honda rider Trey Canard was named to AMA Team USA for the 2010 Red Bull FIM Motocross of Nations. Ryan Dungey and Andrew Short will join him in representing the USA at the September 25-26 race at Thunder Valley MX in Lakewood, Colo.
Motocross of Nations (MXoN) is one of the highest profile motorsports events in the world and has run consecutively for more than 60 years. MXoN features teams competing by nationality to earn combined scores, which determine the overall winning team. Team USA has the strongest track record of any country at Motocross of Nations, with 20 wins to their credit.
“It’s such a huge honor to be selected for Motocross of Nations” said Canard, “I’m so thankful to be able to represent the USA with Ryan and Andrew – they’ve done some great racing this year and I’m looking forward to working with them and giving it my all!”
Canard will race the MX2 class for Team USA aboard his AMSOIL sponsored Honda CRF250R, while Dungey will race the MX1 class, and Short the MX3 open class.
Canard will go for his fifth overall win a row at the next round of the AMA Outdoor Nationals in Southwick, Mass. on August 28.
Until then, we’ll see you at the races.
