Canard Breaks Femur

Shan Moore | April 14, 2011

And then there were four: Team Honda’s Trey Canard suffered a fractured femur this week while testing for the upcoming outdoor season, putting an end to the Supercross Championship contender’s season.According to Trey’s mother, Kari, Trey was testing with Team Honda at Competitive Edge in Southern California, when he over jumped a jump and went down.

“It’s just a small fracture so it’s not as bad as first thought,” said Kari Canard. “We’re going to see his doctor in Oklahoma City tomorrow [Friday] to have it checked again, but Dr. Ryman in California thinks he might be back for Hangtown and for sure by the third round.”

With three AMA Supercross victories this season, Canard sits fifth in the AMA Supercross Championship with 255 points – 20 behind series point’s leader Ryan Villopoto.
