Honda's Trey Canard will finally make his return from injury for round nine of the AMA Nationals in Washougal at the weekend. Canard has been sidelined since April after breaking his arm at the Detroit supercross.

"I'm really excited to be returning to the starting gate and racing with all these guys each weekend," Canard said. "I don't have any set expectations for my return except to do my best, give 100% effort, ride within my limits and enjoy doing what I love. Things have gone smoothly since I started riding again. The Honda team was out at my house testing a few weeks ago, and I feel like they really did their homework while I was out. They've brought an amazing bike together, and I can't wait to race it!"

"We're looking forward to seeing what Trey can do at the remaining four rounds of the series," said team manager Dan Betley. "Trey has made a great deal of progress in a short period of time since getting back on his bike, and he showed a lot of speed while we were out at his house testing. He's an incredibly focused and determined racer, and I don't think it'll be long before he's mixing it up with the frontrunners."
