In between races, we took some time to browse our hard drives and look at photos taken throughout the year. We’ll highlight each shot in a daily post, with the image sized to fit your computer screen or smartphone and described with a small backstory…
Last week, we attended the 2017 KTM team introduction at the manufacturer’s factory test facility in Corona, CA. After spending his entire professional career including some of his amateur career with Team Honda, this was the first time for many to see KTM’s newest recruit Trey Canard in action aboard his all-new ride for 2017. After acclimating himself to the newly rebuilt test track, the Red Bull/KTM newbie proceeded to showcase exactly why the team enrolled him as their third rider by laying down tremendous speed lap after lap.
After a short riding session, we caught up with the number 41 to see how he was adapting to all of the new changes for 2017, and he genuinely seems excited about the transition. “Change is always exciting; especially when it’s for the good.” said Canard. “To be in the position that I’m in now, it’s almost rejuvenating.” It’s hard to say what’ll happen come Anaheim One, but either way we’re excited for the season to begin because 2017 is shaping up to be a good year for motocross racing.
