Trey Canard, who sustained a fractured left arm Saturday night in Detroit, will follow up with a personal physician early this week in Oklahoma to get a treatment plan and an assessment on a recovery time, according to a Honda HRC release.
Canard sustained the injury during the first 450SX Semi when Jake Weimer wasn't able to clear a jump, and Canard landed on top of him. According to reports, Weimer also sustained a broken arm, a punctured lung and a concussion. We'll reach out to Jake this week to get more on his condition. Canard issued a statement today via Honda HRC.
“It’s really a bummer to have my series end this way, especially because I’d been having my best season yet until this point,” he said. “It was a bad crash, but it could’ve been worse, and I hope [Jake] Weimer is okay. I’m disappointed for the team because they’ve been working so hard for me all year; even though the championship was probably out of reach, we got a couple wins and I think we could’ve finished second in points. Injuries are never fun, but there’s nothing to do now but get this taken care of and try to be healthy for the outdoor series. I appreciate all the support from my fans, and I look forward to seeing everyone as soon as possible.”
Canard, currently second in 450SX points, will miss the remainder of Monster Energy Supercross. It is not know at this time if he will be able to return for Lucas Oil Pro Motocross. We will have more information as it becomes available.
[Update: March, 24]
Canard posted on Instagram yesterday that he will undergo surgery today to repair his broken radius.
