Chad Reed showed some good speed and intensity to be right in the battle for the top five with Malcolm Stewart, Aaron Plessinger and Vince Friese in his heat race on the KTM, and looked more comfortable than he had all year on the Honda. However, in the main event, Reed was forced to pull out due to boiling fuel with Reed explaining he was nnot willing to take any risksat this point.

Reed, who says he loves riding the new bike, commented: “It felt good to be back racing yesterday. There is no comparison to racing in front of fans and the silence was weird. I felt like I had a decent day overall. Nice to get back on a race track. I really love riding this new bike and checked off the box to race SX on all brands. That wasn’t intentional or planned just happened to be the bikes of choice over the years. My starts feel better and more natural so now I just need to remember how to use them.

“I made a bad call on fuel choice yesterday. I had taken altitude into consideration but not heat. We boiled fuel pretty early in the main. So I chose the safe route. I pulled off because it wasn’t worth the risk. I was disappointed initially because I felt good on the bike but there is more racing to come.

“Our team has worked hard to be here. I have 1 mechanic @sheetmetal220 who handled a complete change in bike manufacturer and being ready in May instead of sept/ oct like originally predicted. He has learned to get it done no matter what I throw at him and mostly on his own.  We have a small team but I’m really proud and happy to be finishing this ride with my friends and the sponsors we have. Thanks to the fans supporting from home! And we’ll be better and ready for the next one.”
