Reardon happy with first time

First time Motocross of Nations rider, Daniel Reardon is certain that he benefited greatly from the weekend's event, but as always, remained a harsh critic of his own performances.

Speaking after he finished 19th in his second race of the day, Reardon said that while the result seemed okay after the race, he felt that he performed below what he was capable of.

"It was consistent but I was disappointed," Reardon said.

"I just couldn't see, I was getting roosted, I was trying to wipe my goggles, I was bouncing over ruts and I was really struggling out there.

"I didn't really have expectations of exactly where we should finish, but I just know that I wasn't riding my best."

But whilst he was disappointed in his own performance, the 20-year-old said that being a part of such a huge event was definitely an experience to behold.

"It was crazy -- this is the biggest I have ever seen a motocross meeting and it was awesome.

"The crowd was just going crazy, it was going off, and it would be an absolute honour to come back again.

Reardon now heads back home to take part in the final round of the Australian Supercross Championship, and is determined to see that Australian team-mate Cheyne Boyd does not rain on his dream of becoming the champ.

"I'll make sure that doesn't happen," Reardon said with a smirk.

"I'll go home and do some training and get back on that Supercross track, and I am definitely looking forward to it -- and I will make sure that I am on my game and just ready for it."
