Reed pulls a huge holeshot and leads the first five laps.
Johnny was on his game after relaxing in the etnies motorhome before the race.
Supermoto was bad ass this year, all the big dogs came out including etnies riders Johnny Murphee (dirt track racer), Steve Drew, Chris Fillmore, and Factory Yamaha's Chad Reed. The race was one hour, which translated into about 40 laps, with one mandatory pit stop/tire change half way through on a technical course with about half street and half dirt.
Chad Reed took the holeshot and lead the race for about the first five laps until fellow Factory Yamaha teammate Doug Henry passed Chad for the lead. Henry checked out and won the race by over ten seconds, while Reed and McGrath battled the whole race for second place, or silver. McGrath made a huge pass on the down ramp stick and Reed rode to a Bronze Medal.
Congrats Chad on the Bronze Medal!
Steve Drew clears the big step over.
