Unfortunately Trey Canard has suffered another injury with a broken collar bone. MXStates and the MX community wish Trey a speedy recovery. The following is an article reprinted from RacerX www.racerxonline.com
Last night, we learned that Honda Muscle Milk's Trey Canard went down again with another injury—this time a broken collarbone. What might another setback mean for Canard and his team? Our editorial staff weighs in. Be sure to leave your comments below.
My heart sunk when I heard that Canard got injured again. I didn't want to believe it because I like to believe that good things happen to good people, and #41 is definitely in that class. He's been through hell (though he would call it Hades) in the last couple of years with the femur breaks, and now he's got this on top of it. It kind of reminds me of Sebastien Tortelli, an amazing rider and all-around nice guy who spent what should have been the best years of his career struggling with injuries.
While it's too early to know the full extent of Canard's injury and how long he will be out, the damage is doubled by the fact that he was on the comeback trail as it was after his frightening crash at Washougal. Even if it's just six weeks on the sideline, these are six crucial weeks.
Honda may have a problem too: Do they move up Justin Barcia again or do they reach out to Kevin Windham? This broken collarbone could affect a couple of teams.

Dennis would like to share the following with everyone "Motocross is a very demanding sport not be taken lightly. It has peak highs and valley lows. Can be cruel at times. Very rewarding at times. One thing for sure the comradery and thrill of competition is priceless. One thing often forgotten, and the reason we started racing is FUN!!!!!!!!!!!".
