2014 Supercross Injury Report

Once again, Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Trey Canard is sidelined due to a broken bone.

The CRF450R pilot in both AMA Supercross and AMA Motocross broke his arm while practicing over the Thanksgiving weekend. Honda reports Canard underwent surgery on Dec. 3, and will begin rehabilitation to be fully prepared for 2014 AMA Supercross, which begins Jan. 4 at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif.

Though he suffered a broken back during a crash in 2012 Los Angeles Supercross, Canard came back in 2013, eventually finishing sixth overall, and fourth overall in Motocross.

Ray Conway (Team Honda Muscle Milk Director of Racing) says: “Of course we are disappointed that Trey will miss the opening rounds of the 2014 SX season.

“He has been going really fast at all our pre-season test sessions. We all know how hard Trey will work to get back as soon as he can, and the whole team can’t wait for his return.”

The Oklahoma native’s long history of injury began in 2011, when he broke his femur while practicing at the end of the Supercross season. He returned mid-way through the 2011 Motocross Championship, garnering a 5-3 result at Millville. But at the following round in Washougal, Canard suffered another setback when he broke his femur once again.

Canard went through a rigorous rehabilitation program, and was set for 2012 AMA Supercross. But just before the opening race, Canard broke his collarbone during practice.

Canard would struggle with good results, but just when things were starting to go smoothly, he suffered yet another setback – a broken back. This occurred at Los Angeles Supercross when Ryan Morais launched off a jump and landed on Canard, sending both riders to the ground.

Canard was diagnosed with a broken back, and soon had 100-percent feeling back in his legs. Canard underwent another rigorous rehabilitation program, and was able to return, finishing sixth overall in 2013 Supercross, and fourth overall in 2013 Motocross.
