Laninovich To TLD Honda Team

Cycle News Staff | May 3, 2012

Billy Laninovich will ride a Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil Honda on Saturday night in the season-ending Las Vegas Supercross, the veteran filling in for… well, for all three of the Troy Lee rider who are injured – Cole Seeley, Travis Baker and Christian Craig.

“This is a really cool opportunity for me,” said Laninovich in a team release. “I was one of their first amateur riders when they started making gear so it’s cool to be working with them again. Troy [Lee] has always been great to me and hopefully this will work out for both of us.”

Laninovich will ride a Honda CRF250 this weekend before jumping on to a CR450 for a handful of outdoor Nationals with the team this summer.
