Canard explains why he didn’t start the main event
Trey Canard is hoping a shoulder injury sustained on the second lap of practice at Anaheim won’t keep him out of round two in San Diego.
The newly signed KTM man couldn’t didn’t line up for the main event on Saturday night due to the shoulder being too painful and will get the offending shoulder checked out this week.
It is a bad start to the season for the injury prone former 250 US National champion, especially when Canard really needs some results continue in a factory awning next season. The pressure is on for Canard this year, but unfortunately it couldn’t have went worse for him at A1.

A tough day in Anaheim for me yesterday. I crashed the second lap of practice in a rhythm section and banged up my shoulder. I didn't think it was much and tried to ride through it but by the time I got to the main event I couldn't manage so I decided to call it a night. Getting checked out tomorrow so hopefully nothing too serious. A huge thanks to everyone @redbull @ktmfactoryracing for being behind me. I will do my very best to pull myself back up on my feet. Couldn't do it without my wonderful wife @hannahcanard41 and @flyracingusa @alpinestars @officialleatt @scottmotosports @mobiusbraces @jadedungey @therealreddog @polarglobal #solideogloria PC @dkca
