SCOTT Sports has announced that Trey Canard has signed a two-year deal to wear SCOTT goggles and eyewear for the AMA Supercross and Motocross Championships, beginning in 2011.
Canard will race in the highly anticipated, Hustle Goggle equipped with the SCOTT Fit System.
“I couldn’t be happier to have Trey back on the team. SCOTT supported Trey while he raced as an amateur and now as professional. Trey has proven he knows what it takes to be a champion,” said Kevin Strikwerda, U.S. MX Marketing for SCOTT Sports.
“SCOTT has a credible history of supporting the sports best and is looking forward to Trey’s rookie season in the 450 class.”
This season during 2010, Canard placed third overall in the AMA Supercross West Lites series and had a successful stint in the 450 class with five podium finishes as a replacement rider on the Honda Red Bull Racing team.
Canard is also the reigning AMA Motocross Lites Champion, turning in five overall wins and nine podium finishes en route to a comeback victory secured during the final round at Pala Raceway.
In September, Canard was a member of 2010 Motocross of Nations Championship team representing the USA.
“SCOTT was my first sponsor,” Canard commented. “To be back with them is awesome. The goggles and company are both one of a kind and I’m very excited to be part of it all.”
Canard will make his full time debut in the 450 Supercross class on 9 January at Anaheim’s Angels Stadium in California.
