"Thanks so much for the post! This looks incredible! Soon I'll be taking motorcycle riding training classes, and then I'll finally be able to ride my motorcycle wherever and whenever I want. I can't wait!"
"Great motocross racing! In Supercross I heard Dungey is all washed up ! If I had a dime for every time a hypocrite sports fan writes someone off prematurely ! By the way, shouldn't hypocrite fans be banished - sports is about sportsmanship, supporting each other and all good things. We don't need more eastern big mouth wanna- be's popping off all of the time like the espn boys do and all the other big mouth know-it-alls that mucked up sports with trash talk and dirty news. ALL MOTOCROSSERS DESERVE OUR SUPPORT ! Some day EVERY athlete passes their prime. BUT WHEN THEY DO LET'S THANK THEM FOR PUTTING ON A GREAT SHOW WHILE THEY WERE ALL IN ! Skip the BS and the tacky criticisms. Be a real man."
"This sucks, without RV riding the 2012 outdoor nationals we have to watch Cry'in Ryan Dungheep on his orangcicle puff up and tell us how awesome it is to be back out front when he knows down to the core of his soul that every podium he takes is a gift from the the ginger manace! Get well soon RV and I can't wait to see you smoking Dungheeps ass again! God Please let RV be healthy for the Monster Cup, that would be great to see RV step in and steal a million bucks out from under turd boy!"

Chad Reed @CRtwotwo
"Well I spent the day in the hospital yesterday here's the damage.. 2 broken ribs, broken spinous T6. Torn ACL and fractured tib fib.."
Could this be a career-ending injury for Reed or an injury where the already accomplished racer says it's time to say I have done it all and it's time to just be a team owner and hang up his racing gear?
It is unknown if he will have surgery yet - although he probably will down the road to repair the ACL.
Official Media Release
Carlsbad, California - In a devastating blow for TwoTwo Motorsports Chad Reed, injuries sustained at last weekend's Dallas round of the AMA Supercross, have forced him to retire from the remainder of the 2012 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship.
Reed suffered a horrific crash while challenging for the race lead on Lap 7 and was unable to finish the race.
Initial scans have revealed the Australian has torn his anterior cruciate ligament, broken his tibia and fibula, sustained two broken ribs and has a broken T6 vertebrae.
At this point in time doctors are waiting for the swelling on his knee to subside before they conduct surgery.
"To say I am hurting right now would be a major understatement," Reed said. "I am just trying to figure out what hurts more, the injuries or the fact that I am going to be out for a while with knee surgery.
"This is bitterly disappointing, I felt like I had everything in my corner this time. I've never felt more comfortable, from the bike and team to my riding.
"I was genuinely in a position to fight for race wins week in week out and expected to be going to Las Vegas for a shot at the title.
