Trey Canard went out for the first timed practice a little past 9 a.m. The track had already formed deep ruts from the 250 timed practice. This turn was after the last downhill from Mt. St. Helen. The braking bumps were not bad yet so Trey was able to slow down enough to take the inside line and shorten the turn leading to the back section of the track. Trey turned a 2:27.055 in timed practice to qualify 6th overall in the 450 class.Photography by Rob Koy

In the first moto Trey grabbed the holeshot and led for a short time as he fell and was recorded in 13th after the first lap. Trey commented that he felt very uncomfortable in the first moto with the track and his bike setup. Trey did move up to 7th place by the end of the moto.Photography by Rob Koy

After moto 1 the Honda team made suspension changes to Trey’s bike to make him feel more comfortable on the rough and sketchy Glen Helen track. Trey went softer on the suspension and said he and the team learned more about the bike setup. Here Trey scrubs a single jump in the back section of the track.Photography by Rob Koy

Trey was not a fan with this rhythm section. It was hard to push hard through it and if the riders got off rhythm they could lose a lot of time. Here Trey is battling with Jason Anderson for 4th place at the end of moto 2.Photography by Rob Koy
