It was a mess! I would like to know what REED did to his bike. I don't know if he fried the clutch or blew it up. But man was it nasty...

Did you see how he pointed to someone with rage. I hope he wasn't pointing to his mechanic... Also they gave him 6th place even if he did not finish, how come??

Chad Reed is a punk.

Always has been and always will be.

That was a great race. Honestly one of the funnest AMA Daytona supercrosses I have ever watched.

I agree about karma.

It has been fun seeing Kevin making a somewhat comeback.

I'm pretty sure they (AMA)would have penalized him for cutting the track twice anyway so its better it ended the way it did so all he can whine about is own team, and the fact that the goat designed the track for Kdub:ride:

+1

He's the MX version of Matt Mladin.

Reed has never had a good thing to say about anyone but himself and always has an excuse when things don't go his way.

Of course it was his mechanics fault. I'm sure it had nothing to do with the fact the his bike had been sucking water all night.

If the track was designed for K-Dub , then why was he a minute behind ?

I understand everyone has got to have someone to rag on , but seriously ... give Reedy some credit for his performance . You never know , his mechanic could have been over there yelling something stupid like " pull the Hotstart "

Don't get me wrong ... I'm a K-dub fan as well . But the guy takes a pitstop and still wins the race . :thumbsup: In my mind , he'd given up on 1st place and was just hoping Reedy would have a failure .

All in all , that was one of the best races of the season ( for the sheer spectacle ) .

He completed 11 laps before anyone else and only 5 guys did 12 laps. Only the winner has to complete every lap, after that, then you are ranked by how many laps you did complete.

      Garrett Poucher and Skyler Howes of Garrett Offroad Racing are headed to Dakar!  These US privateers are headed there for their first times but Skyler is fresh off a victory at last week's Baja Rally, won the Sonora Rally in March and this team placed third in the Baja 1000.

      They have a fundraising link set up and could use your help.
      I raced with Garrett at Baja Rally last year and then both of them at Sonora and was honored to pit with them as well.  They're both super guys and work their assess off.  I think they both have good chances of not only finishing the 11 days of Dakar but placing well.
      They're doing some rally training events this Sat, Oct 20 in Santa Clarita, CA and then another Oct 28th in St. George Utah so if you've ever considered learning rally raid navigation, this is your chance!  It's a lot of fun too.  More info on that at the link.
