The Hangtown National Motocross pleased local crowds

Sacramento, CA | Motorcycle engines roared, dirt flew and riders grabbed air Saturday in the fortieth annual Hangtown Classic.

Almost prophetically, Brandon Short, Media Manager for MX Sports Pro Racing stated in an earlier press release, "With the overall victory at Hangtown last year to his credit, Two Two Motorsports/Bel-Ray racing’s Chad Reed should also be a fixture at the front of the field on Saturday and beyond." Short went on to say "…the 2009 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Champion had an up and down season during his title defense, but with a clean bill of health and support from Factory Honda, Reed is eager to show his younger counterparts that he’s still ready to mix it up."

And mix it up Reed did. For the second year in a row, Chad Reed, originally from Australia, grabbed this year’s title riding a Honda CRF45R. The previous year’s records show he took the title astride a Kawasaki KX450F.

"We came here this weekend and it was a totally different track than what we were expecting; I was pleasantly surprisde. It was a lot of fun." Reed said adamently, "I would admint saying that I don’t like this place." 

Riders who hale from all over the world came to race at this star studded event. Some local riders are from Walnut Creek, Lodi, Yuba City, Carmichael and more.
