Reedy looked incredibly good in the heat. But I couldn't stay awake long enough to see
Uh...it's duel, not dual.
Yeah, Blose! Chappy must be proud!
I'm sorry, but if you can't podium at X-games, behind Brayton, Hill, and Blose, it's time to give it up. Chad Reed, you are a future hall of famer, but there is a reason Ricky Carmichael retired in his prime.
Wstewart34 clearly you are an idiot. Chad crashed on the first turn and came back to 4th from dead last on a track that's hard to pass on. All in a matter of about 14 minutes. Get a life!
Thank you for the insult. While I do admit, I may have been overly harsh on Mr. Reed, let me reiterate my point. While I do think that Mr. Reed is in the top 20 of greatest talents MX-wise of all time, I stand by my belief that based on his 2013 performance coupled with this X-games performance, he should hang it up. I truly hope he comes back to prove me wrong, but based on what I've seen from previous athletes, the writing is on the wall.
Secondly, the opinion is totally yours, but I do not feel the need for you to call me an "idiot", or any other derogatory name. Should you disagree with this or any other comment I might make, I would gladly encourage you to debate me on further said points, even privately if necessary. I truly LOVE MX and SX, as I have for 30+ years and I do not consider myself uniformed when it comes to such matters. hence this is why I use my real name as opposed to a pseudonym when I post.
I admire anyone else, including yourself, who has as much passion towards this sport as myself.
Thank you for your consideration.
So by that logic @Wstew everyone not in the top 10 should retire? Why must chad win to prove his worth? He loves the sport and he loves being out there and I damn well like watching him ride and I hope he continues to ride as long as he can. It would be a huge loss to the series if he wasn't out there. His intensity is picking up and his speed/fitness is returning. I personally love seeing him sock it to the young guns every now and then.
I may have opened a can of worms I didn't intend to. Let me start over. I, W Stewart, truly believe that, Chad Reed, is one of the 20 best MX, and top 7 SX riders ever. Based on that, he has had an awful, 2013. Based on that, and on that, X-games, is a C-class race. Justin Brayton, is a world class MX-er, and a top 15 AMA rider, as is, Josh Hill. But I have to think, for Chad, this should have been a slam dunk. He should have WON, this with his eyes closed, but he didn't even podium. I agree, one race doesn't make a career, but when you can't even podium a po-dunk event like X-Games, you may want to re-consider your future options.
Again, I may have really stepped in it. This was just an observation on my part. EVERYONE on RacerX, feel free to RESPECTFULLY disagree.
Forgot to mention, I too, would love to see the "3rd wind" from Chad Reed. This is a man who came in during the Carmicael dominance, and went head to head with Stewart, then had to battle with the Ryans. He has NEVER had it easy, yet he has 2 SX titles and 1 outdoor title. Bravo, and he commands my respect. Yet, I believe it is over for him. I hope it is not, but my opinion is, that it is. No disrespect.

Wow, that womens endurocross was downright embarrassing to watch!
Chad was the fastest all night by far,he got messed up in the first turn and came from last to fourth on a Mickey mouse track . Why should he hang it up? He is still on of the best in the world he should stop when he wants to not when some keyboard warrior says so !
I thought we got rid of womens mx at the nationals? how great was that crash by the leader chick. now if she was an experienced rider she would know you do your one handers on the none throttleside! totally shut off the throttle,off a kicker jump (like a ramp) = instant endo .I do have to admit I watched it acouple times, it was pretty funny.
I thought we got rid of womens mx at the nationals? note to all the girls who ride. when doing one handers,do it with non throttle hand always. when you abrubtly shut off the throttle (in air) off a kicker,(like a metal ramp)= endo. was funny though!
I agree with Warren579 , what a Mickey Mouse track! If Chad didn,t crash on the first corner he would of won, he rode good to comeback from last, Hill an Brayton put on a good show , all the way till the end, good to see Blose get 3rd. Will Hahn was a big let down , so was JLaw. :(
It's unbelievably amazing how sexist some of you guys are... you'd think people would welcome women racers in any form! Then again people are too immature to appreciate women who try to change the way women are viewed!
