Cypress CA: Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA is proud to announce that
Chad Reed has re-signed with the Yamaha Factory Motocross Race Team.
Joining the Yamaha ranks three years ago, Chad Reed and Yamaha have
produced a 125 Supercross Championship, a World Supercross
Championship, and a 10 win Supercross season en route to the 2004 250cc
AMA Supercross Championship.



“The contract extension was fairly simple. We wanted Chad Reed, his
professionalism and talent, to further his career on Yamaha and Reed
wanted to stay, win more races and championships with the same
equipment and team,” explains Keith McCarty, Yamaha Racing Division
Manager. “Reed loves racing and, at the core, is a motorcycle
enthusiast. He’ll practice and test from morning to late afternoon,
drive home and ride TTR90′s with his fiancé and friends until the sun
sets. On the weekend, after interviews, autographs and the pit area is
empty, Reed heads back to the Yamaha tractor-trailer to watch race
videos. With fan-like enthusiasm, Chad repeatedly hits the rewind
button, reviewing and learning about his bike, his competitors and the
track.”



“We’ve won 20 Supercross races in the last two years and achieved a
career milestone, the 250 Supercross Championship,” explains Chad Reed.
“Obviously, I’m excited about continuing my career with Yamaha. Our
bikes are unreal, which gives me the confidence to ride at 100%. Plus,
I’ve seen my ’05 Supercross bike already!”



Asked if he was happy with the contract extension, Reed characteristically replied, “Yea, definitely!
