2011 Chad Reed Crash-Millville(Official Speed TV Feed) 11

Footage of Chad Reed's spectacular crash on the opening lap of the second 450 Class moto at the Lucas Oil Motocross Championship's Spring Creek National in Millville, MN, on July 16. Reed had just assumed the lead, looking to take his fifth win of the season, before losing control of his bike and flying upwards of 50 feet through the air. Despite the frightening fall, Reed came away virtually unscathed, and after collecting his breath, returned to action. After crossing the line in 34th of 35 riders, Reed fought his way into 14th by the end of the moto. His 1-14 moto scores resulted in fifth overall, and even more importantly, Reed was able to maintain his series points lead as a result of his incredible effort. Ryan Dungey took the overall win for the day. The footage is courtesy of SPEED/Lucas Oil Productions.

    I doubt I'm the only one that jumped off the couch and yelled "HOLY $#!+" when CR22 went airborne. That was one of the most exciting races I've ever seen.
