Canard is a former 250SX East and 250MX champion, who will join the team as part of the 450 assault. The Oklahoma native is extremely eager in the move and believes a championship title is not out of the question.
“I’m extremely excited to join the Red Bull KTM Factory Racing Team,” Canard said. “It’s a fresh start for me and I’m hopeful that I can make the most of this great opportunity. I’m excited to work with all the crew at KTM as they have proven to be a championship-winning team. I’m grateful for this opportunity and I will do my very best to make the most of it.”
Red Bull KTM will now boast a talented three rider lineup for 2017, a move Team Manager Roger De Coster is very excited about.
“We are excited to add Trey to our rider lineup for the upcoming SX and MX seasons,” De Coster said. “Trey is a great guy and I think his dedication to wanting to be the best he can be, coupled with his personality, is a good fit for our team. Trey has always shown a lot of talent and speed in the 450 class. Our goal is to help him fine-tune his skills and give him the additional guidance to win on the KTM 450 SX-F FACTORY EDITION.”
