Hard Night In Detroit
Round 11 of the AMA Supercross series in Detroit is a race that Team Honda HRC would like to put behind them, as multiple misfortunes left riders Trey Canard and Cole Seely fighting for position. After posting solid times in qualifying and scoring his third heat-race win of the season, Canard was dogged with another poor start in the main, leaving him 14th at the end of the opening lap. The Oklahoman was putting together a solid ride, as he advanced through the pack to a fight for seventh, when another rider pushed him wide on lap 12. Canard ran into a Tuff Block and off the track, then rejoined the race in 12th and spent the final laps recovering as many positions as possible, ultimately taking the checkered flag in eighth.
Teammate Seely had propelled his CRF450R off the line to a good start and quickly moved into fourth, but disaster quickly struck when Seely missed his rear brake with his right foot while exiting the whoop section, and he was launched over a berm and off the track. He remounted in last place, but an impressive come-from-behind performance saw him cross the line in 11th.
