There were no big surprises as the World Motor Sport Council published a definitive 2014 F1 calendar on Wednesday.

The only differences from an amended version circulating toward the end of the season is that the last three races have all moved back a week, with Abu Dhabi ending the season on Nov. 23 rather than Nov. 16.

Mere hours after it was made official that fellow contender Davi Millsaps suffered an injury while testing for the upcoming 2014 Monster Energy Supercross season, Team Honda Muscle Milk issued a press release stating that Trey Canard will miss the opening rounds of the championship after breaking his arm over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Canard underwent successful surgery Tuesday and will immediately begin rehabilitation in hopes of getting back into competition ASAP.

“Of course we are disappointed that Trey will miss the opening rounds of the 2014 SX season,” said Honda Racing Director Ray Conway in the release. “He has been going really fast at all our pre-season test sessions. We all know how hard Trey will work to get back as soon as he can, and the whole team can’t wait for his return.”

Rumored on Twitter and message boards and confirmed yesterday by Cycle News, veteran rider Davi Millsaps may miss the opening round of the 2014 Monster Energy Supercross season and his return to action in general is currently up in the air following an apparent knee injury while testing.

With his Rockstar Energy Racing team switching from Suzuki to KTM for the 2014 season, Millsaps has been hard at work acclimating to the bike since August when he returned to riding following reconstructive knee surgery this past summer. The report indicates the current injury is to Millsap’s other, non-surgically repaired knee.

“I washed out in a corner and my leg got caught with the bike,” Millsaps told Cycle News. “As the bike kept flipping, it twisted my knee. We’re still in the early stages right now. I’ve had an MRI on it, but I have to go back in and get another one. As of right now, we’re not sure what’s going on and what’s going to happen.”
