Chad confirmed that he will be riding for his own team Two Two Motorsports and contest in the 2014 Monster Energy Supercross . Reed had a offer from Carey Hart and Ricky Carmichael owners of RCH Racing that was very solid but turned down the offer.
Reed started his own team Two Two Motorsports back in 2011 with only 2 months of preparation before that season started. That season Reed had 2 wins and multiple podium finishes. The team was based out of his home in florida and they lost the 2011 Supercross Championship by 4 points to Ryan Villopoto that year. That year was a huge success putting a whole new team together and being that close in the championship.
2012 was a year Two Two Motorsports was receiving Factory Honda bikes and parts and the team was based out of the Factory Honda shop in California. Reed started the 2012 Supercross season strong and was really starting to be a title contender landing on the podium multiple times early in the season. Then disaster stuck at round 7 of the series in Dallas,TX. While Reed was going for the lead he crashed in a section and tore his ACL which lead to a season ending injury that left him having surgery and a long recovery.
2013 Supercross season was a struggle both with Reed’s physical shape and the new 2013 Honda 450. Reed was coming off his knee surgery and his off season he didn’t get in the shape he needed to be and not enough time on the new bike. His results showed and at the end of the 2013 Supercross season he finished 5th in points.
This past summer in the 2013 Ama Motocross Championship Reed struggled all season long with a illness and ended up sitting out the last round of the championship. Reed finished the season 15th in points and the worst he has finished in an outdoor championship throughout his career.
It’s now time for 2014 and Chad Reed is committing himself to his Two Two Motorsports Team confirming they will be 100% ready come Anaheim 1 the start of 2014 Monster Energy Supercross series.
Chad Reed will be on a new bike, new program, and is making a full commitment to his family, team and fans they will all have something to cheer about in 2014. We at TheRiderScope.com are excited and proud of the decisions Reed has made. Walking away from a multi – million dollar deal with RCH Racing wasn’t a easy thing to do but Chad looked at his Family, Team Members and went with his gut feeling. He easily could have taken the easy way and the money but this shows us there is more to it then Money its PRIDE.
It’s so hard not to spill the beans on what bike he will be riding… But we can tell ya it has 22 on it.
