Chad Reed to ride yellow for last round!
The motocross rumor mill went into overdrive last week when Chad reed was snapped testing a JGR Autotrader Yoshimura Suzuki, you can check out my post Steemit | Busy. It was pretty obvious to me that he was prepping as a stand in to the injury laden 450 program JGR have found themselves with this year. Well the rumors can now stop as it has been announced officially that he will be at the gate this weekend for the final round of the 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross series.
"The opportunity came up last week for me to test the Autotrader Yoshimura Suzuki RM-Z450. I immediately felt comfortable with the bike and team. Although I had not planned to be in race shape for another six weeks, it is an opportunity to get out and do what I absolutely love the most, which is race. I haven't raced a National in three years, but I have those nervous and excited race feelings to be getting back out there. I'm stoked to help their team and sponsors while a few of their riders are out with injuries. I feel like a kid again getting to ride a factory bike and go racing with a highly motivated crew. I hope to see lots of '22' fans this weekend!"
It's been a long time since Reed has lined up in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross, three years to be exact although he did two rounds in the MXGP FIM Motocross World Championship two seasons ago. He is no stranger to a dirt bike however and i think with enthusiasm on his side we might just see something special... :)
