Reed and his KX250 won the MX Grand Prix of Lierop and eventually finishing the year second to multi-time World Champion Mickael Pichon.
Eager to move to America and campaign to world’s premiere series, Reed picked up a ride with Yamaha of Troy to ride 125 East Coast Supercross and 125 Nationals aboard the four-stroke YZ250F. Reed won all but two Supercrosses that season and earned the East Coast championship. Reed moved directly to the 250 class full-time in 2003 with Factory Yamaha.

In 2011, Chad decided to start his own team – TwoTwo Motorsports, this year riding Honda’s. In June 2011, Chad received a very special award – he was appointed a Member of the Order of Australia. The second youngest person ever to receive the acknowledgement.
