Trey Canard was the recipient of this year’s AMA Supercross “Rookie of the Year” award finishing with a 450 season including three first place wins and five podium finishes.
From the release:
"I'm honored to have been chosen as rookie of the year," said Trey. "It's a goal I've always had, and I'm excited to have accomplished it. Overall it was a great season for me, filled with a lot of success for my first year in the 450 class. I'm really thankful for the support of my family and sponsors and I can't wait to do it all again next season."
A dedicated and determined competitor, Trey's speed was evident on the track, earning him 13 finishes in the top six. After making a run for the title, an unfortunate crash in practice and a cracked femur kept Trey from finishing out the season; otherwise he would have had a legitimate shot at the title.
"Trey truly embodies the DC "Refuse To Lose" mentality," said Nate Morley, DC's SVP of Marketing and Creative. "He had an incredible rookie season and proved he was a force to be reckoned with. Trey certainly deserves this award, and we couldn't be more happy for him."
