"I love racing and my passion for doing so has not changed, but there comes a time in every racer‰Ûªs career where you come to the realization that although the spirit is willing, the flesh is weak, and I know in my heart it‰Ûªs time to call it a day," Canard said.
"I‰Ûªve had many injuries throughout my career and have always done my best to heal and bounce back. However, I feel I am not able to push myself to the level I need to in order to be competitive at the highest level of racing. I am sad to say goodbye but also extremely grateful and thankful for the last 10 years of my life. I never could have dreamed I'd do the things I‰Ûªve been able to do, to live out a childhood dream and meet and become close with so many wonderful fans and industry people.‰Û
