Chad Reed: "I am really happy that I rode 20 solid laps tonight. Ryan (Villopoto) started to gap me on laps 9 - 11 and I found myself being lazy in the turns. I was able to get back on him and make a pass but he was real aggressive and made a pass back. I have to be a little more aggressive and make things happen."
