Reed response …





Chad Reed won a very exciting race for Round 7 in San Diego. He passed Ricky Carmichael on the last lap to win his first main event of the year.



Carmichael took over the lead on the first lap from Jeremy McGrath. RC extended his lead initially, and looked headed towards another win – predictable for this season. But, Reed broke with the predictability of this season, staying very agressive, and started closing on Carmichael in the second half of the race. Reed made the pass on Carmichael during the last lap, and kept it until the checkered flag. Reed and Carmichael were so far ahead of the rest of the field they lapped up to third place. Carmichael did bobble a few corners from the end, but still placed second. Those two riders had the crowd on their feet for the last few laps of a very exciting main event – flash bulbs were going off everywhere.



Reed was pumped. He took a victory lap, stopping at different places along the track, waving at the crowd, smiling, and enjoying the win.



The 125 West division had Nate Ramsey winning the main event over early leader Ivan Tedesco. Tedesco would finish second, with Andrew Short finishing third. Ramsey was enthusiastic on his parade lap after winning, revving the four-stroke KTM as he stopped on the face of the triple, pumping his fist in the air, and pointing to the KTM logo on the gas tank.



Weather had an impact, but not so much on Saturday night’s racing. Rainy weather lead to Friday practice being cancelled, and Saturday’s practices being delayed. But only a small amount of rain came Saturday afternoon and evening, and the night’s racing program had no rain.



Ricky Carmichael had to go thru a semi to make the main. He was leading his heat, and crashed, eventually pulling off. He came back to win the semi, and then heading to the main.

Gaston Rahier, 1946 – 2005

Belgian and Suzuki great Gaston Rahier passed away on Saturday in Paris after a long illness. He was 58 years old.



Rahier was a founding member of Suzuki’s participation in the 125cc
Motocross World Championships, with three consecutive world titles in
1975, 1976 and 1977 established Suzuki’s unprecedented run of 10
consecutive world championships. He still holds the record of 29 Grand
Prix victories in the 125cc class.



His motocross career came to an abrupt end in 1982 following a serious
accident in which he almost lost a hand. He recovered, and in 1983,
participated for the first time in the demanding Paris-Dakar Rally but
retired following a mechanical breakdown while leading. He returned in
1984 and 1985 and dominated again, becoming the first non-French rider
to claim victory.



Rahier made a tremendous contribution towards making Rally racing a
more widely popular sport. His Paris-Dakar and Pharaoh’s Rally
victories in 1984. 1985 and 1988, his professional approach towards
Rallies, and his open personality made him a celebrity, known not only
by fans and supporters of motorcycle sport, but also by a much wider
general public.



As a member of the Belgian Motocross Team, he also won the Trophy des
Nations in 1974, 1975, 1976 and 1978 and the Motocross of Nations in
1976.



Everyone in the industry, including Suzuki Motor Corporation, wishes to
express our deepest sympathy and offer our condolences to his family at
this sad time.

4 for four in 2005





Ricky Carmichael & Suzuki claimed their fourth consecutive AMA Supercross win together, as RC laid waste to all the other competitors tonight – worked his way into the lead during the first lap, and continuously, methodically, and with precision, stretched it out all 20 laps.



Chad Reed overcame a terrible start, slowly worked past riders until eventually passing countryman Michael Byrne to take over second position, which he held until the checkered flag. Michael Byrne did have his strongest run of the season to take the final position on the podium.



Ricky leads the series point standings with comfortable margin at this stage of the year.



Kevin Windham, Jeremy McGrath, and a few others had some spills and disappointments that can happen with racing motorports. Both Jeremy and Kevin were on the ground at almost the same time in the main event, and they both did not finish.



Travis Preston of Team Honda was back in action on the CRF 450, placing eighth. One of most exciting races of the night was Jeremy McGrath holding off Nick Wey in their Semi. There was a split start / corner used on the track. Riders could choose to turn right or left on the start and each lap. A majority of riders choose to use the right hand turn.



In the 125 West, defending champion Ivan Tedesco seems to have his rhythm and confidence going very well – he won the 15 lap main event tonight, and leads the point standings as well.



Second place in the 125 class went to San Francisco winner Billy Laninovich, and Nate Ramsey was third.



The series heads east next weekend to Indy. It will be the first race of the year for the 125 East competitors such as Matt Walker, Grant Langston, and Davi Millsaps.
