Reed aims for San Diego Supercross podium

San Diego’s Qualcomm Stadium is the site of this weekend’s seventh round of Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an event at which TwoTwo Motorsports’ Chad Reed hopes to shine.

Early race pace has been the only chink in the armour of the two-time champion, who has shown on a number of occasions his ability to charge back through the pack after being caught in turn 1 crashes.

The mid-pack melee at last week’s Houston event made chasing a podium position incredibly difficult for the Aussie star, a scenario he is looking to avoid with a clean run from the start gates.

“Starts are critical on any night but the track at Houston made it even more important to get ahead of the pack,” said Reed.

“I got caught up and spent the race trying to make passes and get back positions.

“I wasn’t unhappy with the ride but it’s made that much tougher when you’re letting pace go to waste.

“Hopefully we see a more rider-friendly track this week, I’m pumped to get out there and put in a good result to get back into the top three.”

The TwoTwo Motorsports pilot has finished every race of the 2011 season inside the top ten.

Reed sits in fourth after six rounds, 7 points behind fellow Honda rider Trey Canard. He maintains a buffer of four points over defending champion Ryan Dungey.
