Metrodome Main Event win the goal for series leader Reed

Posted:

Chad Reed is aiming to eliminate memories of an excruciating defeat at last weekend's mud-soaked Daytona round by capitalising on superior speed and taking victory in the Main Event at the Metrodome in Minneapolis. Entering the series' eleventh round, the Aussie has led an incredible 104 laps, over four times more than his closest championship rival. His points tally should show a greater margin over second place after he dominated proceedings last weekend, before his bike succumbed to some of the worst track conditions ever seen in an AMA Supercross race. Reed had built and maintained a lead of over a minute to that point, and he wants to bounce back with similar pace at the Metrodome. "I have been focusing all my attention on preparing for this weekend, there's no use dwelling on last round as I am satisfied that I rode the best race I could," said Reed. "There's no room for conservative riding as there's just too many guys out there capable of catching you off guard." "This is another event that hasn't been on the calendar for a number of years, I haven't had a win here so converting my form to maximum points is the goal this weekend." Reed will make his 91st AMA Supercross start this weekend. Just five regular rounds in five consecutive weeks remain following this event. He holds a 23-point advantage over second, with the third-placed rider trailing by 69 points. 2008 AMA Supercross Class Season Standings
