Chad Reed Talks Riding Red - Video
Monday, April 18, 2011
One of the biggest surprises in this year’s Supercross
season, and it’s been filled with plenty, has been the title-winning form of Chad Reed
. The two-time SX champ entered the season as a contender, but questions lingered about the competitiveness of his machinery. Unlike James Stewart, Ryan Villopoto and Ryan Dungey, Reed lacked the official full factory support of a Big Four manufacturer. Having campaigned four different brands in the past four seasons, Reed selected Honda to outfit his own Two Two Motorsports squad in 2011.
The results speak for themselves, with Reed just six points down on the leader heading into the final two rounds of the season. American Honda
have seen both their factory boys fall to injury, with Josh Grant blowing out a knee in the early rounds and Trey Canard recently breaking his leg. But Big Red may get that rider championship anyway courtesy of Reed’s steady performances on the CRF450R. Check out Honda’s promotional video on Chad Reed’s choice to ride red this season.
