You have to be pretty special to make this list as an active racer with only one AMA National Motocross title so far , as there have been so many incredible motocross racers over the years who managed to win one title or more. Reed did the opposite, spending one season in Europe racing the GPs he finished a strong second in the GPs to Mikael Pichon before moving to chase his fortunes here. The MX championship was hard earned. Reed had the unfortunate luck to line up against Ricky Carmichael in the class and, like Kevin Windham, we think he possibly had some more titles in him if not faced against the GOAT. Reed has 11 career overall wins and an incredible 45 podiums in the big bike class, which is fourth all-time.

Josh Grant & Chad Reed Out For Las Vegas Supercross - Swapmoto Live
He is a multi-time supercross and motocross champion and the record holder for most main event starts in AMA Supercross history, with starts as of , with his career spanning almost 20 years. He was taught from a young age as being capable of competing at the sports most elite level. As a small child, Chad owned a horse named Fern. After his cousin Craig Anderson started riding a bike, Chad instantly discovered his love for motorcycles and made the decision to trade in his much-loved horse in place for his first ever bike - a Yamaha PW The 25 acre property was overgrown with thick bushland, and was yet to even have a house or electricity on the land. The family went to the property to clear the tea tree shrubs by hand at any spare chance they could find, which resulted in the family home being built along with several tracks for Chad to practice on. Without fail, weekend after weekend, his Dad Mark , his Mom Robyn , his younger Brother Troy , spent the majority of their time travelling around Australia so that Chad could compete against the rest of the country.
Chad Reed confirmed in a Instagram post on Sunday that he will miss the remainder of Monster Energy AMA Supercross due to injuries sustained in a crash off the start of the main event on Saturday at round 12 of the championship in Seattle. Reed made a mistake off the start in the main event and went down and was immediately landed on by Kyle Chisholm, who had already committed to the jump. Reed immediately waved to the Alpinstars Medical Unit for assistance.
