American Honda announces the addition of Sayaka Kaneshiro to Team Honda Muscle Milk for the 2012 Women’s Motocross Championship (WMX) series. Kaneshrio will join three-time Women’s Motocross Champion Ashley Fiolek aboard factory prepared Honda CRF250Rs.

After winning multiple championships in Japan, Kaneshrio moved to the United States and continued racing as a 20 year old privateer, placing in the top ten her first full year racing the 2011 WMX series, and grabbing a sixth at the 2011 X-Games Women’s Motocross event. “Joining Team Honda Muscle Milk this year is really a dream come true for me,” explained Kaneshrio. “I feel now I have all the support I need to bring me closer to accomplishing my goal of winning races and hopefully have a shot at the championship.”

“We are excited to welcome Sayaka to our team for the 2012 outdoor season,” said Team Manager Erik Kehoe. “Sayaka will be able to learn and grow from teammate and defending champion Ashley Fiolek and with Team Honda Muscle Milk’s support and our class-leading CRF250R equipment, we believe she has the all the tools to be a consistent threat.”

Sayaka will enter the 2012 season geared up in all-new Troy Lee Designs racewear; Troy Lee Designs is the official apparel sponsor for Team Honda Muscle Milk.

Sayaka’s first race with Team Honda Muscle Milk will be the Hangtown Motocross Classic in Sacramento, California on May 19, 2012.
