Red Bull / KTM’s Trey Canard has spent a good portion of his 450 career on the injured list so everyone had high hopes for the Oklahoman coming into the 2017 Anaheim 1 SX opener more healthy than he’s been in a long time. Unfortunately, that only lasted a couple of laps of qualifying.

In the early laps of the opening qualifying session, Trey went down hard on his new KTM. I only saw the end of the crash, but he quickly remounted and laid down the sixth fastest time in the session. “I din’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,” Trey said after his pulling out of the show just before the start of the main event.

Hopefully this is just a small bump in the road for the #41 and we see him back on the line for San Diego. You can check out Trey’s full update from Instagram below.

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
