Click bait I know but Just looking at Reed's and jgr insty. Reed is fricken hauling.... Looks like 2014 anaheim sorta speed. Through and of the berm he looks way quicker than last year... And looks super relaxed on the bike.

He may be 36, but if he's healthy, fit and on a bike he's 100% comfortable on, I still believe that he can surprise.

I wouldn't count Reedy out yet. Remember the last time he was on a yellow bike?

Judging someone on one short video is a waste, but the corner and straight prior aren’t exactly on form. The dedication and determination are another matter though!

There was no part of that video that he wasn’t “on form”.

Hope reed does great this upcoming Supercross season. I’d like to see him podium.

Pretty hard to judge how someone is riding when they're not competing against others.

Video Reminds me when SX had a lot steeper downsides than today.

My post is my opinion. If you don't agree with it, I'm OK with it.

I think it's pretty damn badass , that a guy at his age can still drop the hammer like that , and has the will to still race. At his age , still being towards the very top of the rider's on planet earth.......how could you not think that's badass? I say " Give em' hell Reedy! "

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

I’m a Reed fan, but the human eye doesn’t measure speed. A clock does.
C. Pourcel would blow by people while his riding looked like he was on a sighting lap.

James was always “way faster”, even when the stop watch said otherwise.

Hilarious that you all think you can tell by a 20 second video....

Regardless of the video, if you've been around the sport long enough and still bet against Reed, you haven't learned a damn thing.

Imo he will be signed to jgr before the monster cup. Makes to much sense for jgr not to.

I completely agree. I think they'd be stupid not to do it. SX only, guy can put it in the top 10 no problem and will probably have the longest autograph line

Hope he gets the JGR ride. He can bring a ton of exposure, help improve bike set up, work with Peick, Hill and more important - the guys on the 250. Let him ride for two years SX only and then be a brand ambassador.

I think this whole 'tryout' deal may have been more about Reed showing what he could do for their social media followings than the actual riding. Everybody already knows how well Chad can ride if he is healthy and gelling with a bike.

I firmly believe it's injury and just being burnt out on the lifestyle that puts guys out at an early age. I don't think there are physical reasons why a 36 year old can't still run near the front in SX. Chad has gotten very good at balancing life and racing so that he can maintain his fire.

He's quicker than who?

He looks on fire. Racecraft is on point.

I still don't think he'd podium but it's a win for everyone involved

Reed: It's his best option
JGR: Huge autograph line and great visibility for them
Suzuki: "Reed is on a Suzuki woohoo, quit saying our bikes suck!"
Fans of the sport: Reed is still out there

Yep, he still looks like Reed. Not sure how he would look "Relaxed" from watching the video, I guess if he crashed he would look "uncomfortable" but he looks like he always does.........................FAST !

Are you smart enough to buy a bike that costs less, weighs less, makes more horsepower per cubic centimeter, can be rebuilt for recycled aluminum can money and is giggle inducing? It is hard to believe that the American riding public flunks this test en masse. How stupid are you?

His body language when hits those first fewjumps he looks a dam site more fluid then last year on the bike. Not to mention How the bike hooks up out of the berm an the speed he hits the whoops.. Btw you might wanna check the comments on his Instagram by elite sx an mx guys Commenting how good he looks.... It is only a short clip but he looks wayyyyy better then last year. Also check Hill hitting the whoops on jgr Instagram. Besides Hill hitting a beast quad Reed to me looked faster.. Whether that's the case I can't answer that, I'm purely going off what I can see...
