Reed excited to be racing at Phillip Island
News Friday 26th October 2012 By Geoff Meyer
Reed heads to the event coming off an encouraging fourth-place finish at the Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas, his first Supercross race since the crash in Dallas which de-railed his AMA Supercross title chances.
“Last weekend was my first race back in eight-and-a-half months, it’s so good to be back racing,” said Reed.
“There was a lot of work involved in coming back from the injury, way more than I could have anticipated, I’m just glad that’s done and now I can focus on doing what I love.
“I’m excited to be here, this time of year is normally the time I get to Australia anyway, I would have been here watching the MotoGP anyway but to be here and actually have my gear and do a little racing is a bonus for me.
“I’m really happy and proud to be a part of something pretty special.”
Practice, qualifying, heats and the 20-lap Main Event for the Pro Open class will be held tomorrow.
Entry to the Supercross precinct is open to all ticket-holders at the AirAsia Australian Motorcycle Grand Prix at Phillip Island.
