Chad Reed Holds Out Ryan Dungey for Third in Indianapolis Battle

TwoTwo Motorsports/BelRay Racing’s Chad Reed has continued his consistent run of podium results finishing third at Round 10 of the Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship at Indianapolis Lucas Oil Stadium tonight.

Reed, who was third in his heat race got a good start and took the holeshot in the 20-lap ‘Main Event’.

As the race progressed Reed was unable to hold out Ryan Villopoto and then endured an intense battle with defending champion Ryan Dungey for third.

The Australian held out his young opponent and despite recording the team’s sixth podium result, said he was not happy with the way he rode tonight.

“There are no excuses,” Reed stated. “I got beat tonight, I holeshot the race but didn’t ride well.

“It was disappointing to be in the fight and not be able to go on with it.

“To be honest I was lucky to be able to hold onto third. I couldn’t snap out of it and couldn’t change up what I was doing wrong. I have a few things to work on.

“There is a lot of racing to go and I am not focusing on the championship I just want to ride well,” Reed concluded.

The next event sees the series head to Jacksonville’s Everbank Field on Saturday March 19 (Sunday March 20 AEST).
