Monster Energy Supercross: Chad Reed May Have Cost Ryan Dungey The Championship As Eli Tomac Wins 5th Straight

Tomac Wins As Dungey Not Happy With Reed

450 Class:

The main event started well for Ryan Dungey as he got the start he wanted as he grabbed the holeshot with Eli Tomac right behind him. Dungey’s lead did not last long as Tomac charged by him through the whoops section. The only difference was Dungey was able to keep pace with Eli. Then just as Dungey seemed to be gaining ground on Tomac he got stuck behind a lapped rider in Chad Reed. Reed was keeping his lines which was Ryan’s line and he would not allow Dungey to pass. Just before that he let Tomac go by no problem. It may have been the mix-up that Reed and Dungey got in during the heat race where the two came together on the whoops but that should not show in racing. Reed was a lapper and his job is to get out-of-the-way for the leaders as not to affect as much as possible. Reed did the exact opposite and Dungey was stuck behind Reed for two or three laps. This allowed Tomac to pull ahead and take the win. This was Tomac’s 5th straight victory.

After the race Dungey was asked about what happened and this is what he had to say.

“I just don’t know why [Reed] has to get involved with me and Eli’s position,” Dungey said after the race. “If he was on the same lap, I’d understand, I think we all would, but he’s a lapper. It’s just unfortunate, but what do you do?”

“I don’t know where it’s coming from,” said Dungey in the post-race press conference. “I guess I don’t know what I did wrong. I have a lot of respect for Chad, he’s been in the sport a long time. I’m not going to come in here and push the guy around or anything, I’m gonna race him clean”

“But he has no respect for us and what we’re doing, what we’re trying to do. I have a lot of respect for the guy, still do, but tonight was a low blow.”

Reed has made no comment and when the race was finished he went straight into the locker rooms avoiding Dungey.

Dungey’s lead is now only 4 points heading into Seattle and then a week off.

250 Class:

The 250 main started with Joey Savatgy starting second behind Dakota Alix who grabbed the holeshot. Jordon Smith was close behind. Then Savatgy took no time making a pass on Alix as he made the pass on turn two. Once again Savatgy made a mistake around the halfway point when he hit a bad rut and it sent him off the course. This allowed Smith to catch up and make the pass. Then on the last lap Savatgy made a last second charge in the whoops but Smith was able to hold him off. Zach Osborne was able to finish third despite being sick with the flu. It seems as if the Flu is going around as both Dungey and Marvin Musquin have battled with it also.

State of Trifecta Network

The last two months have been a whirlwind. There are no words that can truly describe what has happened to us as a website.

We went from a site that was getting an average of 2-3k viewers a week to getting that in a single day on average since the start of June. Since the start of June, we have been a credentialed member of the media to several of the teams in the area and look to increase that in the Fall.

Ultimately everything we create is meant to be read/consumed by our readers, you.  Often it is tough to get a vibe on what is or isn’t working in terms of content. That is why we would greatly appreciate if you guys give your thoughts in the comment section of this post to help us curate better content.

One thing we are looking forward to in the Fall is more reader/writer interactions. We will start doing Q and A’s related to all the Boston sports teams as well as a live Fantasy Football podcast where we will take your lineup questions.

The launch of the Fantasy podcast has yet to be decided, but expect it ahead of week 1 of the NFL season with a draft podcast. We will also be launching a Fantasy Football league to run alongside it if interested in joining fill out the contact form below with your information.

Trifecta Network is a growing platform, we will always be free and made for our readers. We appreciate your readership and want to build the best product we can to ensure the best Boston sports experience in the city.

You may have noticed more video content on the site, it is an area we are looking to improve, but not focus solely on. Many sports sites are going away from traditional writing, a move that I believe is a mistake.

If you ever have any thoughts or comments please feel free to reach out to us.
