Shortly after impressing at the 2007 Loretta Lynn’s Amateur Championships, Oklahoma native Trey Canard graduated to the pro ranks at Spring Creek – despite crashing badly during the first moto there, he returned to finish a strong fourth in the second race. He went on to finish in the top ten at each of the three remaining rounds of the outdoor series.
In 2008, he won the East Coast Lites Supercross Championship at his very first attempt, winning every heat race and main event over the first four rounds of the series, including the muddiest supercross race ever held at the Daytona Motor Speedway. After an injury-affected 2009, he returned to be crowned champion in the 2010 250MX series, and he was also part of the USA team that triumphed at the Motocross of Nations at Thunder Valley MX in Denver, Colorado.
For 2011, he moved up to the 450 class with Team Honda Muscle Milk, but back-to back femur injuries limited his participation in the outdoor series to just two races. Bad luck struck again in 2012, as he broke his back in the series’ third round, ruling him out for the rest of the year.
However, Trey always remained positive that he would return to full form and fitness, and, sure enough, he finished second in his first race back in 2013 at Anaheim 1, following a lengthy battle with Davi Millsaps. In 450 MX, he also turned on the style, finishing fourth overall, and, perhaps most importantly, staying injury-free.
