TORRANCE, CA March 22, 2012 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Team Honda Muscle Milk announces today that current GEICO Honda rider Wil Hahn will fill in for Team Honda Muscle Milk rider Trey Canard at select Supercross races beginning with the Toronto round.
Team Honda Muscle Milk would like to thank the Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda team and all their sponsors for allowing Cole Seely to fill in aboard the factory CRF450R. Seely will now begin preparing for the final rounds of the Lites West class.
GEICO Honda’s Wil Hahn has continued to improve since turning pro in 2007, including placing second overall in the 2010 Lites West championship.

Hahn is ready to step up to the Supercross class and battle on the Team Honda Muscle Milk CRF450R during the Lites West break.
“Wil has shown considerable speed in the last few years in the Lites class, and we believe he has what it takes to run in the Supercross class,” said Team Honda Muscle Milk Manager Erik Kehoe. “His focus and determination makes him a good fit for the team. I would like to thank everyone at GEICO Honda and all their sponsors for allowing Wil the opportunity to race a factory Honda in the Supercross class.”
