After making it to the ranch 9 years in a row, Cameron Cannon will be skipping out his 10th year due to breaking both of his wrist after his bike malfunctioned while going over a jump. We caught up with the MotoX Compound rider to see what has been going on lately and what his plans are for the rest of the year.
Cameron Cannon: It is such a bummer that I’m not at Matt’s facility training away like all my friends and competitors. I had been training hard and putting in the time and effort before the accident. A normal day at MotoX Compound starts around 7:30 a.m. with breakfast (which is usually eggs, eggs and more eggs) and then a tough workout at 8 a.m. with our trainer, Bubby. We then suit up and ride from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. with a short lunch break. Every day is different with Matt, one day we may do motos, another day technique and corner track, another day we may go to a different track to ride. Matt mixes it up and keeps it from being boring and the same thing every week. After riding session, I then have to wash the bike and get it ready for the next day. I’ll then hop on my road bike to ride with some of the other riders training there. I’ll make me a Ryno Power protein shake after biking and usually throw something healthy on the grill for my dinner.
MP: Lorettas is right around the corner, will you be able to race?
Cameron Cannon: So you can imagine the timing couldn’t be worse for getting hurt. It is such a bummer that I won’t be able to race Loretta’s in a few weeks. This was my 10th year making it in a row, and I was training hard and feeling good about my riding going in to Loretta’s. I was going to race Schoolboy 2 and 250B Stock.
