Trey Canard Returns after Injury to Washougal Motocross
During a crash with Jake Weimer at Detroit Supercross 2015, Trey Canard suffered a broken radius in his left arm. The break required surgery, and Surgeons at the Oklahoma Sports Science & Orthopedics in Oklahoma City inserted in April a carbon-fiber plate, which replaced a previous one installed in November 2013, and inserted eight screws.
The Team HRC Honda CRF450R pilot was forced to miss the rest of the Monster Energy Supercross Championship, and was expected to return sometime during the 2015 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. And that sometime will arrive this weekend at Washougal Motocross in Washington, round nine of 2015 MX.
Trey Canard returns after doctors gave him the OK to ride, and he is looking forward to returning to the track.
“I’m really excited to be returning to the starting gate and racing with all these guys each weekend,” Trey Canard said. “I don’t have any set expectations for my return except to do my best, give 100% effort, ride within my limits and enjoy doing what I love. Things have gone smoothly since I started riding again. The Honda team was out at my house testing a few weeks ago, and I feel like they really did their homework while I was out. They’ve brought an amazing bike together, and I can’t wait to race it!”
“We’re looking forward to seeing what Trey can do at the remaining four rounds of the series,” said Team Honda HRC Manager Dan Betley. “Trey has made a great deal of progress in a short period of time since getting back on his bike, and he showed a lot of speed while we were out at his house testing. He’s an incredibly focused and determined racer, and I don’t think it’ll be long before he’s mixing it up with the frontrunners.”
