Updated: Canard Out For Start Of SX

Press Release | December 7, 2011

Team Honda Muscle Milk’s Trey Canard won’t be ready to race at the start of the AMA Supercross Series after undergoing surgery last week on a broken collarbone. For Canard it was yet another setback, the Team Honda rider already trying to return from the broken femur he suffered in August.

Canard, who had on recently started riding again, crashed last week while training and broke his left collarbone. He said via his Twitter account that, “I was riding within my comfort zone and just got an unexpected buck.”

“Trey suffered a fracture to his collarbone when he crashed at a team test,” said Team Honda Muscle Milk Manager, Erik Kehoe. “He underwent surgery and his physicians estimate he will need a recovery time of four weeks at the minimum. It’s very disappointing to see this happen to Trey, especially after all the hard work he’s put in to recuperate from injuries in 2011. He will miss the first few Supercross rounds, but our team will continue our preparations for the upcoming season with Trey’s teammate, Justin Brayton.”
