Is it just me, or could Trey have benefited from racing being 2 strokes vs 4?

Damn. He is rippin! What’s crazy is that he would still be a few secs quicker on a 450.

My son happened to be riding milestone yesterday so he got a pic with him. Said Trey was really laid back and chatted with him for a bit. He was out here testing the 2t for Roczen.

Wonder what shock is he running. It looks like a BFRC, although I don´t think it is

I am surprised Honda even wants them guys riding a bike they don't make any more or want to make.

I think it's great though.

It's nice to see Honda doing anything positive with two strokes.

It’s just a modular version of a traditional designed shock. Showa has made a few three piece body versions to play with the last few years and one must fit the CR250R. It’s not a BFRC.

I’m pretty sure Red Bull is being pretty hardcore about having Roczen at straight rhythm, fair enough given what they pay him. HRC is doing what they can to get him there, they did prep/let him ride one of Jeremy’s bikes for Terrafirma94 so this isn’t a shock

Why? I have always thought the uber talented guys would benefit from two strokes more as they are harder to ride. And Trey was one of those ungodly talented individuals.

I seen that but i just thought that was something they (riders) did by themselves.. I did not realize that Honda had anything to do with it.

I'm not doubting his ability to ride a 250 2-stroke at a high level, but in this era of racing I don't see 2-strokes being competitive like they were when 4 strokes first started becoming the norm around 2005-2006.

I'll add to that and say you can put any top level factory rider on a 250 2-stroke and they could probably still qualify for main events, but to say they would benefit riding it more than a 450 is delusional, but it would be fun to see.

Y'all missing his point, he's talking about back when everyone races 2T he thinks trey would have fared better.

250 4t vs 250 2t = problem solved.

I guess I did miss the point, but I don't think results at the top level would change too much if they were on 250 2-strokes instead of 450s. His smooth style definitely gels well with the 2-stroke, though.

I totally miss Trey Canard being on the line each week on the #41 Honda.

I totally don’t miss his crashing his freaking brains completely out some of those weeks though...

Good dude. Glad he’s having fun. Good on Honda for hooking him up!

Trey is one of those what if riders…

Had he not gotten hurt a few times and had momentum, he would of won a few 450 titles. He was on the gas in 2011 and 2015.

Trey was amazing. I remember him putting the screws to villopoto in 250sx and thinking “who the hell is this”. Seemed to come out of nowhere with blazing speed.

Honda has been the most anti-twostroke manufacturer since going 4T. I suppose Kenny and Red Bull said “we’re doing this” and Honda had no choice but to support him.
I’d like to believe this was the start of something new for 2T but can’t.

It’s not uncommon for brands to leverage their legacy products to stoke nostalgia and build excitement without any intention of actually bringing that legacy product back to market.
