Motocross giveth and motocross taketh away

Last week it seemed the whole world was amazed by Chad Reed's survival of that horrific crash at the Spring Creek National. This weekend at the Washougal National, Trey Canard's crash served to remind everyone of the dangers inherent in competing at the highest levels of the sport.

GuyB at Vital MX snapped this photo right before Trey (41) would lose control over this jump and hit the ground hard enough to re-fracture his recently-healed femur.

A deeply disappointing turn of events for Trey.  Hang in there friend, and get well soon.
