This motocross crash of Chad Reed aboard his “Privateer” Honda CR450F was at the 7th round of the 2011 AMA Lucas Oil Motocross series at Millville / Spring Creek in Millville Minnesota, and has to be one of the scariest motocross crashes we have seen in a long time, and then to see CR22 remount his bike and get immediately back into the race is nothing short of amazing, and serves as a true testament to the conditioning that motocross athletes have developed, as well as the level of fitness that these riders maintain.
This ride began going bad as quickly as Chad got swapped out in the chop leading up to this monstrous gap, but the worst part was that he still launched off the lip of this jump whiskey throttled and all, and then became immediately separated from his bike, with nothing left to do but start rolling down the windows on his way back to terrafirma.
This was definitely the kind of violent, swapped out motocross crash that any rider hopes would never happen to them, but fortunately Chad Reed was able to catch the grassy down slope on the back side of the jump, which allowed him to avoid greater injury, enabling him to return to the race while holding onto a 5th overall for the weekend, which is nothing short of amazing, and the following video is what Chad's yard sale looked like from a spectator's POV...
