Freestone 450 Moto One Report

If there were any questions about TwoTwo Motorsports Chad Reed’s opening round victory at Hangtown, those questions were answered at round 2 of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship from Freestone.

Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil Honda's Christian Craig grabbed a surprising holeshot in moto 1 over Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Jake Weimer and MotoConcepts Yamaha's Christophe Pourcel, with Reed and JGR Yamaha's Davi Millsaps rounding out the top-5.

Meanwhile co-points leader Rockstar Makita Suzuki’s Ryan Dungey and Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto were buried mid-pack.

It was all Craig early as he jumped out to the early lead. Behind Craig it was Reed, Dungey (who bulldozed his way through the pack) and Pourcel fighting over second. Reed and Dungey would eventually make their way around Pourcel who would pull off later in the race.

Mid-way through the race Reed would make his way around Craig, with Dungey tagging along. That would be the last Ryan Dungey would see of Chad Reed, as Reed cruised to the victory by seven seconds over Dungey.

Dungey would take second, with Villopoto rounding out the podium after a tough start. Millsaps would take fourth, with Craig rounding out the top five.

It was a tough day for Kevin Windham as he had to pull off late in the race with bike problems.
