Yamaha Motor Corp USA, located in Cypress California, is proud to announce the signing of Chad Reed to the Yamaha Factory Motocross Team. Reed signed a two-year deal to contest the 250 Supercross and 250 Outdoor National’s beginning next year.
Winning the first five 125cc Supercross races you enter will catch the eye of Factory Team Managers. “Chad’s been amazing for the Yamaha of Troy team this year. He’s holeshot and won, he’s won from the back of the pack, he looks smooth and aggressive simultaneously,” explains Keith McCarty, Team Yamaha Factory Race Manager. “The backside of triple-jumps could be made from glass and Chad wouldn’t scratch the surface.” Smooth, tactical, and fast, Chad Reed will be a favorite to win in the 250cc class next year.
“My goal is to win the 125 championships, gain even more experience, and be ready to win in the 250 class next year,” says Chad Reed. “I couldn’t have scripted the start to this year any better, winning and signing with Team Yamaha. In the last few years alone Dowd, Fonseca, Roncada, Windham, Henry and McGrath have all won championships on their Yamaha YZ’s, I hope my name will be added to that list!”
Chad will continue his quest for the 2002 125cc East Supercross and 125 National Championships aboard his Yamaha of Troy YZ250F four-stroke.
