Trey Canard To Return to 2016 Pro Motocross Competition | Team Honda HRC Comeback

Canard Back From Neck Injury |

To Compete at Millville

Trey Canard 2016Team Honda HRC’s Trey Canard, who has missed four rounds of the 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series due to a bulging disc in his neck, will return to competition this weekend at Spring Creek MX Park in Millville, Minnesota. Canard has been on Team Honda HRC’s disabled list with Cole Seely.

“I’m excited to be returning to the starting gate this weekend,” Canard said. “After my crash, I didn’t have enough strength to hang onto the bike for a full moto, due to the numbness in my arm and hand, so I felt it was best not to risk it. I’ve been doing whatever I can since then to rehab it in order to get back to racing as soon as possible. Things have gone smoothly since I started riding again about a week and a half ago, so I’m eager to race with these guys.”

Although Team Honda HRC has been unrepresented at the last two rounds of the AMA Pro Motocross Series, Justin Bogle, who rides a factory Honda CRF450R for the GEICO Honda team, has had some impressive performances. In addition to four consecutive holeshots, Bogle scored a fourth place in the first moto last week at The Wick 338 in Southwick, Massachusetts.

Trey Canard Returns“We’re looking forward to having Trey back at the races,” Team Honda HRC manager Dan Betley said.  “Trey is extremely determined, so I’m certain it won’t take him long at all to return to form and start battling up front.”

After sitting out four of seven rounds, Canard sits 15th in the 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Point Standings, 260 points behind leader Ken Roczen (Soaring Eagle/Jimmy John’s/Suzuki Factory Racing). Before his injury, Canard had taken a podium at the Thunder Valley National in Lakewood, Colorado last month, and was the second-fastest qualifier at Thunder Valley, behind Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Eli Tomac. Canard was fourth in the standings at the time of his injury, and had six top 7 moto finishes to start the year.
