With the AMA Motocross season over and the Supercross season over a month away, the Yamaha factory team sharpened their moto skills this weekend at the Bercy Supercross in France. Chad Reed took top honors at the prestigious event, winning all but one of the races he entered, followed by his fellow Yamaha rider, Grant Langston.

Yamaha’s Chad Reed was crowned King of Bercy after a dominating performance at the prestigious French event.

Reed was crowned King of Bercy for 2007 by virtue of his dominating performances all three days. The Australian supercross star was victorious in eight out of nine motos, finishing second to Langston just once on Day 1. For Reed it is the first time he has taken top honors at Bercy and bodes well for the one-time AMA Supercross champ to regain the title in 2008.

Langston’s success compliments the South African rider’s surprising 2007 AMA Motocross championship. The Yamaha rider has won just about every title in the books and given his strong Bercy showing, Langston looks like a podium contender in the upcoming season.

With Ricky Carmichael pulling out of a planned appearance, it wasn’t a very successful outing for the Americans at Bercy this year – at least on an individual level. A triumvirate of American Honda riders were unable to shake Reed or Langston, with Andrew Short the closest, finishing second on Day 2 and third on Day 3. Honda’s Josh Grant also logged some top-five results, with Jeremy McGrath also filing one top-five performance for the enthusiastic French fans. The consistent finishes of the Americans did earn the U.S. squad an overall team win.
