CHAD REED TO RIDE FOR YOSHIMURA SUZUKI

CHAD REED TO RIDE FOR YOSHIMURA SUZUKI IN MX SEASON FINALÉ

Back to news

Former AMA motocross champion Chad Reed will return to Suzuki for the 2018 outdoor season finalé, and race an RM-Z450 at Ironman Raceway in Crawfordsville, Indiana.

Reed, who won the 2009 motocross championship with Suzuki, rode a stock RM-Z450 at a recent press event, and show enamoured with it was he that discussions began about testing the team's race machine.

After a positive test, the Australian will line up for the final round alongside Justin Hill.

He said of the opportunity, "It came up last week that I could 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’s 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 the 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!"
