Chad Reed chooses his weapon for supercross

Posted:

Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA has announced their Factory Race Team for the 2006 World Supercross Series. Returning racers Heath Voss and Chad Reed begin their Supercross title hopes on December 3rd in Toronto, Canada. In a modern-era first, the Factory Yamaha Team will race exclusively on four-strokes as Voss and Reed will sit behind the starting gate in Toronto on YZ450Fs. Heath Voss, with four-stroke Supercross experience and a World Supercross title under his belt, had an easy time adapting to the new YZ450F. "My bike was a workhorse last year but this year's bike corners tighter and feels more like a 250," explains Heath Voss. "I‰Ûªve been training in Texas for months; I'm faster on the new bike and want the season to start today." Chad Reed faces a new challenge in the 2006 Supercross Championship racing four-strokes in the premier class. Reed won the 2002 SX Lites title (125cc) on the four-stroke YZ250F then raced the past three years and won the AMA Supercross Championship on the YZ250 two-stroke. "I rode the 450F at a photo shoot back in May and could instantly feel the improvements; I thought about racing it indoors ever since," explains Chad Reed. "There are sections on the track where the four-strokes just rip and we feel this is the best race weapon indoors or out."
