 Before a record crowd of 70,649 at Atlanta’s Georgia Dome, Australian Chad Reed has maintained his unblemished podium record, finishing third at the eighth round of the 2007 Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series. With strong results throughout practice, Reed then went on to win his heat race convincingly ahead of 2006 Champion Ricky Carmichael, earning himself second gate pick for the 20-Lap Main Event.

Reed re-mounted his Yamaha YZ450F and set about chasing down the leaders and methodically reeled in fourth then third, but ran out of laps to challenge for second place. “I am really disappointed with myself for making that mistake tonight,” Reed said.   “I have been training well all week and the bike has been awesome.”

“The team at L&M Racing have been there week-in-week out and I’m sure we will bounce back at St Louis next weekend.”
As the 2007 Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series hits the halfway mark in the championship Chad Reed is currently second in the championship on 171points. The 24-year old will next compete at Round 9 of the Amp’d Mobile AMA Supercross Series which will be held at the Edward Jones Dome in St Louis, Missouri on Saturday 3rd March.
