CHAD REED IS AN ALL-TIMER IN THE SPORT OF SUPERCROSS AND MOTOCROSS. As the veteran racer winds down his career, it’s important to note that at one time, Reed’s future in the sport was heavily questioned.
In 2010, after one frustrating season on the Monster Energy Kawasaki squad, Reed had nothing in terms of a ride. The #22 couldn’t find a spot on any factory team, and after his worst season as a professional, he wasn’t money in the bank like we know him to be now.
Reed was about to embark on a rise from the ashes that hadn’t been seen in the sport since—well, ever!
This is the history of that first year of Team TwoTwo from the people who lived it.
