Torrance, CA: The Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship series made its eighth stop this past Saturday in Millville, MN, for the annual Spring Creek National, and Muscle Milk-supported GEICO Honda’s Eli Tomac stole the show with a dominant 1-1 performance en route to his first career win in the premier 450 class. For the fourth consecutive week, Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Trey Canard put together two solid rides, landing just shy of the podium in fourth with 4-3 marks.
During the day’s opening race, Canard launched his CRF450R off the line to a fourth-place start. The front-runners quickly separated themselves from the field, but Canard struggled in the tricky sand whoops and was unable to close the gap, taking the checkered in fourth. In the second moto, he got off the line in fifth place but dropped back in the pack. Luckily, the race was red flagged due to a start-gate malfunction, giving him another chance to get back up front.
