Seattle Supercross Report

Apr 18 2005 / Monday

The Supercross series hit the North West on Saturday night and as expected it was very wet. With rain all week before the race, the skies finally cleared the afternoon of the race and held up through the night. But the weather held up much better than the track conditions did. The tarps covering the track diverted much of the water, but all the moisture made for some very soft dirt which turned into very deep ruts by the main events.


Chad Reed had a tough night falling in his heat race in some very rutted out whoops, falling way behind and missing the final transfer spot by only one position. Because of his poor finish in the heat race, Chad didn’t get a very good gate pick for the main event and had to start from the outside. On the start of the 250 main Chad was right up front with Bubba and Windham into the first turn but got bumped by Bubba and he and his bike were thrown over the berm. When Reed finally got up and going he was in dead last place with Bubba, Carmichael and Windham up front.

From last place Reed charged through the deep ruts and weaved his way past the squirrelly field of riders to come back and finish fourth place and within 1.5 seconds of Carmichael who finished third.

Mike LaRocco rode solid and consistent hoping for a repeat of his performance at Anaheim 1 where the track and weather conditions were similar to this weekend. Unfortunately the top three also rode very consistent too, but Mike was right there in the hunt and ready to capitalize if any made a mistake. Riding smart is just why LaRocco has been on top for so long and is currently second in the World Supercross GP points and fourth in the AMA Supercross points.

In the 125 class, etnies riders Billy Laninovich and Brett Metcalfe rode very strong but both had some problems early on and finished sixth and eighth respectively.
