2010 AMA Supercross Season Comes to an End for Canidae Riders

The Rockstar Energy, Suzuki, Canidae All Natural Pet Foods team looks back on a tremendous season and prepares for the Outdoor Nationals in two weeks.

San Luis Obispo, CA (May 10, 2010) - The 2010 Rockstar Energy, Suzuki, Canidae All Natural Pet Foods Supercross team had a tremendous season, enjoying some major accomplishments during this year's grueling campaign.

Coming off such a great outdoor season in 2009, the bar was set high for 450 rider Tommy Hahn. Hahn would battle injuries from a pre season crash and would not be 100% until almost halfway through the season. Once healthy, Hahn looked more consistent and would finish inside the top 10 in 12 out of 17 starts. Hahn would break through in Seattle where he would earn a career best 2nd place finish. Tommy looks forward to a new start when the outdoor season begins in 2 weeks.

Hunter Hewitt rode the West Coast Lites class this year and made huge strides in his sophomore year of Lites racing. Hewitt would finish inside the top 10 twice this year and finish the year in 13th place in points.

East Coast Lites racer, Blake Baggett was racing in his very first Supercross season in 2010 and the rookie let everyone know that he is for real. Baggett would finish inside the top 10 in 5 out of the 8 rounds and captured his first career win in Dallas. Baggett finished his rookie season in 5th place in points and is looking forward to heading outdoors where he is considered a top 5 favorite even with his rookie status.

Ryan Morais raced the West Coast Lites series this year for the Rockstar Energy, Suzuki, Canidae team and came out of the gates blazing. With podium finishes in Anaheim 1 and Phoenix the future looked bright for the young rider until a horrific crash at A2 left the front runner sidelined until Seattle. It is great to see Morais back up and racing and we look forward to seeing him atop the podium during the MX Nationals.

Jake Moss signed with the team for the 2010 season and was supposed to be the consistent top 10 finisher in the East Coast Lites series while showing the ropes to Baggett. Moss would have a season that he hopes to soon forget with finishes well below his potential. With only 1 top 10 finish this year and missing the last 2 rounds with injuries, Moss will focus on getting healthy and making some noise outdoors during the Nationals.

All in all it was a great year for the Canidae All Natural Pet Foods sponsored team and everyone at Canidae could not be more proud. We look forward to dominating the Outdoor Nationals with this highly potent group of riders when the series starts in Sacramento, CA at the Hangtown Nationals on May 22nd. Make sure to come out and support the Rockstar Energy, Suzuki, Canidae team. See you there!
