Chad Reed Crash Video: Motocross Racer Flies Off Motorcycle, Keeps Racing

Chad Reed's spectacular crash may be six days old, but it's just too ridiculous to pass up.

On July 16 at the 2011 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship in Minnesota, the Australian motocross racer suffered what would appear to be a crash that would make anyone think twice about getting back on the bike.

We don't want to give too much away, but Yahoo! Sport reports that Reed launched 35 feet into the air before crash landing.

(Story continues below video.)


The Daily Mail reports that Reed was not seriously injured in the crash.

"I hit some bumps and the front wheel just went out from under me,'' Reed told Australia's Herald Sun. "The next thing I knew, I was flying through the air. I'm just happy to still be here."

Amazingly, Reed finished the race in 14th place.
