The Team Honda HRC rider is coming back after missing the last four races as a result of an injury suffered during practice. A bulging disc in his neck caused numbness in his arm and hand. He’s been able to get back on the bike the last two weeks and feels he is ready to return.
“I’m excited to be returning to the starting gate this weekend,” Canard said. “After my crash, I didn’t have enough strength to hang onto the bike for a full moto, due to the numbness in my arm and hand, so I felt it was best not to risk it. I’ve been doing whatever I can since then to rehab it in order to get back to racing as soon as possible. Things have gone smoothly since I started riding again about a week and a half ago, so I’m eager to race with these guys.”

Team Honda HRC has been fully sidelined the last two races as Canard’s teammate Cole Seely is also out with an injury.
Canard, currently 15th in points, will be working towards strong finish aboard his Honda CRF450R, to earn his way back into the Top 10.
