The Mercury Cars Guide : January 10th 2009
Saturday, January 10, 2009 Classifieds 62 300 400 • carsguide.com.au CARSguide —19 Reed third in Monster showdown with JAMES BRESNEHAN A USTRALIA’S richest motorsport export, two- wheel ace Chad Reed, started his supercross world title defence with a podium position at the USA’s Monster Energy Supercross event at Angel Stadium, Anaheim, last weekend. It was Reed’s debut for his new team Rockstar/Makita/Suzuki. Reed was third into the first corner of the 20-lap final, but jumped into the lead on lap five. But several errors, including a crash with American rider James Stewart, saw the Australian lose the lead and finish third. ‘‘It was absolutely wild out there,’’ Reed said. ‘‘That had to be the most action- packed season opener I have exper- ienced in my career.’’ HIGH FLYER: Aussie supercross star Chad Reed. Initially, Reed was not happy with the set-up of his Suzuki in the heats, but had it humming by the final. ‘‘We continued to make changes untilwegot it rightand bythe time we got to the main event its performance was unbelievable,’’ he said. One of Australia’s highest-paid sportsmen for the past two years, Reed said he only had himself to blame for not winning. ‘‘Once I passed James [Stewart] I probably got a little too confident, then made a couple of mistakes which allowed him to pass me,’’ he said. ‘‘I knew I had the pace to catch him again but he missed a gear going into the woops and I couldn’t avoid him, the next thing I knew we were both cart wheeling down the track. ‘‘I managed to remount quickly and pushed the bike to salvage a podium. ‘‘Even though it wasn’t a win it was still a great start to the championship and I am really happy with the way everything has worked out.’’ Reed will compete in the second round of the series this weekend at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona.
