The accident occurred during tests for the Detroit AMA Supercross race and people who assisted to it actually thought that Chad Reed’s career had come to its ending point. Not so much because of the fairly common dynamic of the accident, but because of the sprained shoulder and the internal bleeding (luckily not so serious).

The MDK KTM riders said they were going to get on the podium at the opening round of the East Coast Lites Series and they proved they could this weekend.
MDK KTM Factory rider Martin Davalos and MDK KTM Lites rider Ryan Sipes finished in the top three in their heat and repeated those results in the main.
Davalos and Sipes both lined the gate for Heat #1 of the Lites class. Both riders started out front and finished that way. Sipes picked up second and Davalos finished third.
