Cycle News Staff | June 17, 2016

Unfortunately, Honda’s Trey Canard will miss this weekend’s High Point National in Mount Morris, Pennsylvania. The Oklahoma native currently holds fourth in the 450 MX championship standings. Ryan Dungey, currently second in the series will also miss Mount Morris and several additional rounds due to the back injury he sustained in a crash at round three in Colorado.

The following release is from HRC:

Team Honda HRC’s Trey Canard will miss this weekend’s High Point National in Mount Morris, Pennsylvania, having suffered a practice crash at his Oklahoma track on Monday, June 13. As a result of the crash, Canard has a bulging disc in his back, and his condition will be assessed on a weekly basis in order to determine when he returns to racing. Canard currently sits fourth in the championship standings with 97 points after posting three fifth-place overall finishes at the opening rounds.

“It’s unfortunate that Trey will miss this weekend’s race,” said Team Manager Dan Betley. “He has shown a lot of speed at the first three rounds and continues to improve his starts. We’re confident that he’ll be back in action sooner than later, but at this point we’re just going to evaluate things each week.”
