Trey Canard is back on the injured list. The promising Supercross rider, who has been recovering from a broken femur, took to the track this week to start training for the 2012 season. But Canard took a bad fall and ended up breaking his collarbone.
Canard told his fans on Twitter that the accident wasn't due to his previous injury. Canard said that he wasn't pushing himself too hard, he just caught a bad bump.
"I am getting my calcium and trust me, I've done about all I can do to stay healthy. I wasn't over my head or pressing it too far. I was riding within my comfort zone and just got an unexpected buck. There is only so much you can do when you are moving at a high speed. I just want to assure my friends and supporters I am doing my very best. This is my passion and I strive to leave no stone unturned."
After taking his first career victory in the premier Supercross class, Canard suffered a broken femur and had to sit out the rest of the season. Still, Canard was able to take fifth overall. Motorcycle USA reports that after returning for the MX season, Canard re-injured his femur again.
Canard hasn't released an official statement yet but it looks like Canard will miss the opening round of the 2012 season. The Supercross series starts on January 7th, which gives Canard less than a month to recover from his recent injury.
