Hilde is holding down the fort at MotoUSA’s Southern Oregon HQ. With world-class dirt bike and ATV trails just minutes away, the hardest part is getting him to focus on the keyboard. Two wheels or four, it doesn’t matter to our Off-Road Editor so long as it goes like hell in the dirt.

Trey Canard  #41  and Ryan Morais  #65  suffered a serious collision at Dodger Stadium that brought out a red flag.

Honda confirmed the injuries for Trey Canard are a broken back suffered Saturday night at the Los Angeles Supercross. Canard was landed on by Ryan Morais on the opening lap of the main event after he was forced to single his way through one of the big triple jumps. Canard’s Honda CRF450R picked up a tuff block cover which caused him to slow. Honda reports via Twitter that a MRI showed fractures, but “Canard has 100-percent feeling in his legs, & is awaiting the decision by his doctors as to whether or not his injury requires surgery.”

The injury is the fourth in a string of broken bones, starting with a broken femur in last year’s SX series, another busted femur in the 2011 outdoors and a broken collarbone during 2012 preseason SX testing. The Oklahoma native put in a solid comeback ride last week at Phoenix where he posted seventh.
