Chad Reed = One Bad Dude
Monday, July 18, 2011
Chad Reed has to be the baddest dude in all professional sports right now. Don’t believe me? Check out this video clip from Saturday’s Lucas Oils AMA Motocross
Moto 2 at Millville, Minnesota. After stealing the lead from Ryan Villopoto the Honda rider somehow lost control of his dirt bike on the face of a jump which catapulted him through the air—upwards of 30 feet above the ground. Miraculously he landed on a grassy down slope and avoided dying or smashing any of his bones to bits. It took him some time to get back on his feet but when he did he grabbed his bike and soldiered on from dead last to finish 14th out of 30-plus rider field. It was pretty obvious after the race that he had a concussion which makes the results even more astounding. I’ve never seen any other professional athlete take that kind of digger and manage to continue the race let alone pass half the field… Amazing stuff!
