AMA Supercross: Canard Breaks Collarbone

2012 Supercross Prep

As if the 2011 AMA Supercross/Motocross championships weren’t hard enough on Trey Canard, the Muscle Milk Honda rider had another setback this week.

While practicing for the upcoming 2012 AMA Supercross Championship, Canard crashed and broke his collarbone. Following the crash, Canard tweeted "I hope to be riding soon but I will take the necessary steps to be back as healthy and as prepared as possible."

Canard, who pilots the No. 41 Honda CRF450R in the Supercross/Motocross Championship, fractured his femur while training towards the end of the 2011 AMA SX Championship; although he was forced to miss the final three rounds, he still finished fifth with 255 points.

Canard was forced to miss the first half of 2011 AMA MX due to the injury, but returned at Round 7 in Spring Creek to finish third. But misery followed Canard at Round 8 in Washougal, where the Oklahoma native re-broke his femur, forcing him out of the remaining races.

One of Canard’s latest tweets says: "I just want to assure my friends and supporters I am doing my very best. This is my passion and I strive to leave no stone unturned."

Best of luck, Trey.
