The High Point National in Mt. Morris, PA, hosted round four of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship this past weekend, and Team Honda Muscle Milk's Trey Canard earned his third podium appearance of the season with third overall aboard his CRF450R. In the 250 competition, Muscle Milk-backed GEICO Honda's Justin Bogle grabbed a fourth-place overall finish with 4-4 scores.

450 Race
Canard propelled himself off the line to a top-five start in the opening race. He quickly moved himself forward, wasting no time to take over second on lap five. From there it was a head-to-head battle with all the top title contenders within just a few seconds of each other. Canard was able to hold the competition at bay until a mistake on one of the closing laps caused him to go down, sending him back to forth.

In moto two, Canard got off to a great start, rounding the first turn in third and quickly moving into second on the opening lap. He really found his stride throughout the 17-lap race, holding off multiple charges by the competition to maintain his position all the way to the checkered flag. His 4-2 marks awarded him third overall.

"It was a great day. I am really happy with how today went and it is nice to be back on the podium," explained Canard. "The day started out tough though; practice didn't go great and even in the first moto I didn't feel too good. I was just trying to go fast because I know every position and point counts, but I made a small mistake and tipped over in moto one while running second. We made a really good change before the second moto and it made a world of difference for me. I felt so much better and just had a lot of fun. One of the times I got right up on James (Stewart) and felt I could make a charge for him but there were a lot of lappers and I missed the double because of it and lost a lot of time there. I think this weekend was a big boost heading into the break to train even harder and make more progress to come back strong at the next round."

250 Race
Bogle launched his CRF250R off the line to a second-place start in moto one and made quick work of the rider in front of him to take over the lead. He commanded the early stages of the race before falling back into second where a heated three-way battle ensued for the position. He fought hard, ultimately crossing the finish line in fourth. In moto two, Bogle did not get the start he was looking for and rounded the first turn in the top 10. He quickly started his assault through the field, working his way into fourth on lap nine, which is where he finished. His fourth overall moved him up one position in the championship chase.

"Overall today was very positive for me," Bogle stated. "I got to lead a few laps in moto one, which I haven't done in a long time at a national. You learn a lot up front and I think we made some great progress with that. I had to work a little harder in the second moto because I didn't get the greatest start, but I got the same result. I'm happy with my entire program and team, so I am ready to keep moving forward."

Fellow Muscle Milk-sponsored GEICO Honda rider Zach Bell finished 15th in moto one and 11th in moto two, landing him 13th overall for the day. Teammate Zach Bisceglia had a trying day, crashing a few laps into the first moto and suffering a concussion. He was ultimately sidelined for the remainder of the day and will return to battle at the Muddy Creek National in two weeks.

The Focus: The Life of a Honda Transportation driver
Unlike the riders and crew members, who get to fly to and from each event, the transportation drivers aren't as lucky. Other than the occasional weekend off during season breaks, they spend nearly eight straight months on the road. Between the 17-round Supercross and 12-round Motocross seasons, they cross the country seven times and log over 35,000 miles per year. Their responsibilities don't end once they reach their designated locations; they are also responsible for cleaning the inside and outside of the rigs, stocking them full of groceries, as well as setting up the tents. On race day, drivers also arrange catering or cook for riders and fellow crewmembers. They are a crucial component to the success of a race team.

"I've been driving trucks for 13 years now with the last seven being for American Honda" stated transportation driver Andy Holl. "I really enjoy my job but it does get tough being on the road all the time now that I have a wife and son. My favorite part though is being able to meet so many different people throughout the year at each stop we make. I've made a lot of good friends that I wouldn't have met if I wasn't doing what I am doing."
