Monster Energy Kawasaki rider Chad Reed underwent successful surgery to repair his broken left hand in California. Reed is expected to miss a minimum of six weeks recovering from the injury that occurred on Saturday night at Chase Field in Phoenix.
"This will be the first time Chad has ever missed a supercross," said Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Manager Mike Fisher. "I know Chad wants to be racing. His surgery went really well and will start his rehabilitation as soon as he can.
Suzuki’s rookie Supercross sensation Ryan Dungey took home his first Supercross 450-class win on Saturday night at Chase Field in Phoenix, Arizona. It was Dungey’s second race as part of the AMA Supercross class, and he won by a decisive margin leading the entire 20-lap race.
Dungey was in second place after three practice sessions, and he also won Heat #1 by grabbing the hole shot and leading for the entirety of the race. At the drop of the gate for the main event, Dungey shot out and nabbed the holeshot for the second time of the night.
Yamaha’s radical new 2010 YZ450F with the rear-slanted and repositioned engine is acquitting itself quite nicely in the opening rounds of Supercross. After James Stewart won on the new YZ450F in Anaheim, Josh Hill gave the new Yamaha its second podium appearance in as many weeks at Chase Field in Phoenix last Saturday.
After setting the fastest time on the YZ450F in practice, Stewart suffered a bad crash during his heat race and left trackside in some pain. It was questionable whether Stewart would return.
