Rookie Chad Reed Dominates in Anaheim!

Australian Rookie Rocket Chad Reed took round 1 of the U.S. AMA Supercross Series (Round 3 of the World Supercross Grand Prix) on Saturday, in Anaheim, CA. Reed who just moved up from the 125cc class, rode a Yamaha YZ-250 to victory. He was not so closely followed by 2002's AMA Supercross Champion, Ricky Carmichael on a Honda CR-250. Charmichael tasted Anaheim dirt during the race, but recovered and regained second place, after Travis "I bump my head a lot" Pastrana and Mike LaRocco took each other out. Though Carmichael did a fantastic job salvaging 2nd after crashing, his lap times never matched a relaxed and blindingly fast Reed. Round 2 takes place next Saturday (1/11) at Bank One Ballpark in Phoenix.
