Canard out of the Supercross

American Honda announced today that Trey Canard will miss the remaining three rounds of the 2011
Supercross Championship after injuring his leg in a practice crash. Canard and the American Honda Racing team were  at Competitive Edge MX Park in Hesperia, CA, making preparations for the upcoming Motocross season when the  incident happened.

"Trey suffered a non-displaced fracture to his femur when he crashed at a team test,” said American Honda Racing Team Manager, Erik Kehoe.

"The good news is that the fracture is not as severe as it might have been. We are hopeful  Treyʼs return to racing will come soon. Itʼs very disappointing to see him get hurt, especially after the fantastic  Supercross season heʼs having. In his rookie season heʼs won three Supercross races and was in the championship  points chase with three rounds to go. He will miss the remaining Supercross rounds, so the team will focus on our  preparations for the upcoming Motocross series where both Trey and Josh Grant will make their returns to racing.”
