After just one race back in Lucas Oil Pro Motocross following an injury to his neck and a nerve in his arm, Honda HRC's Trey Canard has been forced back to the sidelines after a crash yesterday while training at Robbie Reynard's training complex in Oklahoma. In the crash, Canard suffered a concussion. The news was announced today in a Honda press release.
"I’m extremely disappointed that I won’t be able to race again this weekend,” Canard said in the statement. “I was practicing at Robbie Reynard’s place on Tuesday and had a pretty big crash that left me with a concussion. I’m grateful there weren’t more severe injuries, but still bummed I won’t be out there. I had a good weekend at Millville and was really hoping to build on that at Washougal. I’m going to do whatever I can to get back out there as soon as possible to finish the season off strong."
Canard went 6-6 for sixth overall Saturday at Millville.
With the series taking two weekends off after Washougal before resuming at Unadilla, there's a chance Canard could return for that race, however it's tricky to create a solid timetable on concussions.
The team said the expectation is that he could race Unadilla, but his condition will be evaluated as the event gets closer.
