Trey said that he has figured out that the numbness in his had was not from his neck injury, but that it was linked back to his elbow injury. Once they figured that out his recovery was pretty quick. Here Trey waits for the riders’ meeting to get underway at Spring Creek.Photo by Rob Koy

Trey went out in the first timed practice and turned his best lap on the last lap of the session. Trey recorded a 2:20.315 lap on lap 5 which gave him the fifth quickest time in session one. Trey said that he’s not a fan on how they are prepping the tracks with way too much water in the morning. He said that the first timed practice was like a mud bog and it makes the track too one lined with that much water on the them.Photo by Rob Koy

Trey takes it high around the berm between the two sand whoop lanes at Spring Creek. Trey said that his grip strength is fine and should not be a problem any more. Trey only got back in the bike two weeks ago and made a lot of progress last week and thinks he’s good enough to come back and ride himself into race shape.Photo by Rob Koy

Trey took the inside line after the whoops to the right turn and was able to jump the small step up as Barcia takes the outside line. This step up got deep ruts as the day went on and riders would take the outside line as it had a big rut that was wide. Trey turned a 2:13.773 on the last lap of the session to get the 5th gate pick in moto one.Photo by Rob Koy

Trey and Ken Roczen hit each other hard off the start of moto two. Trey came out of the first turn in 9th place and it took him a while to move up. Trey said that the team went ahead and made a fork change between the motos and it took a while for Trey to get used to the new forks. He said that it was a move in the right direction and he was happy with the suspension in moto two.Photo by Rob Koy

Trey takes the outside line looking for a smoother rut in the second moto. Trey was able to get into 5th place in the middle of the moto but on the last few laps he started to fade and he couldn’t hold off Justin Barcia; Trey had to settle for 6th place. Trey said that the track was supper rough and he was not comfortable with his bike all day, but the fork change was in the right direction and the team might try a new shock at Washougal. Trey Canard went 6-6 for 6th overall at Spring Creek. He said he will leave Millville happy with that, but believes that he has the speed to be in the top three.Photo by Rob Koy
