2009-supercross-01.jpg
Chad Reed had three wins and 12 runner-up finishes in the 2009 Supercross season.
2009-supercross-10.jpg
Chad Reed lost his bid for a third series championship to James Stewart by 4 points, but left no doubt that he'll be one of the riders to beat for some time to come.
2009-supercross-02.jpg
'I love the rivalry that we have going on, and there's a lot of fuel in the fire.' James Steward, opening round in Anaheim.
2009-supercross-03.jpg
At Phoenix, Reed posted the first of seven consecutive runner-up finishes, and after the race at Atlanta Feb. 21 he was 3 points out the lead - 2009 Supercross season.
2009-supercross-04.jpg
Reed made his first visit to the top step of the podium when the series moved to the new Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis Feb. 28. The Tampa, Fla., resident took the lead at the start, relinquished it to Stewart on lap 14, and regained it on lap 16. The 2.1-second victory left the rivals deadlocked in the standings with eight rounds to go.
2009-supercross-05.jpg
Another Reed win the next week at Daytona Beach, Fla., followed by a second at New Orleans and his third win in four weeks at St. Louis March 21 and a second in Toronto March 28 left Reed 8 points ahead heading into the final four races.
2009-supercross-06.jpg
A rivalry that had been fairly low-key flared in Jacksonville, where Reed finished second to Stewart after a confrontation between the two in practice and what Reed considered a dangerous mid-air pass by Stewart over a triple jump.
2009-supercross-07.jpg
The Australian star was also battling an undisclosed illness that may have been a major factor in Reed's 7th place finish and fall to second in the standings at Seattle after being accidentally hit and knocked down by another rider on the opening lap.
2009-supercross-09.jpg
On lap 12 of Salt Lake City, as Stewart and Reed were lapping Kyle Chisholm, Stewart's teammate failed to give race leader Reed room to pass and then ran into his rear wheel.
2009-supercross-11.jpg
A win at Salt Lake City would have left the leaders tied in points going into the final Saturday. Instead, Reed trailed by six and knew that in all likelihood his hopes depended on winning the race and having Stewart finish no better than fourth.
2009-supercross-08.jpg
Ryan Villopoto took the lead at Las Vegas for good on lap 3, with Stewart second and Reed third.
2009-supercross-12.jpg
Villopoto struggled with illness and inconsistency during his rookie season, but finished extremely well to insure himself of contender status in the future.
2009-supercross-15.jpg
Villopoto, a Poulsbo, Wash., resident, made his return with one of those storybook moments, getting his first main event win before a hometown crowd at Seattle.
2009-supercross-14.jpg
Pourcel had five wins and never finished out of the top five in eight starts to win the title by 33 points over Pro Circuit mate Austin Stroupe.
2009-supercross-16.jpg
Jake Weimer came up 5 points shy of the West title, but had three wins and was in the top five in all eight races.
2009-supercross-17.jpg
Ryan Morais had five runner-up finishes in West Coast Lites to take third.
2009-supercross-18.jpg
Josh Hill, a Yoncalla, Ore., native, raced the majority of the season at less than 100 percent. A podium finish in Toronto and a strong fourth-place run in Jacksonville brought late-season promise, but a practice crash just before Seattle forced him to sit out the final three races.

James Stewart and Yamaha win the 2009 Rockstar Energy Drink US Open.
2009-supercross-19.jpg
Christophe Pourcel of France won three of the first four East races and clinched the title with one event remaining by winning at Toronto, and then won the finale at Jacksonville, Fla.
