Chad Reed has been confirmed for the Monster Energy S-X Open Auckland, and the entire Monster Energy S-X Open International Supercross FIM Oceania Championship.
With two World Supercross titles to his name, Reed is the most prolific and successful rider to ever compete in New Zealand, with the Aussie setting his sights on winning the inaugural S-X Open Supercross International FIM Oceania Championship, with the finale at Mt Smart Stadium on November 24.
Plenty of fireworks, both on and off the track, are expected on November 24 at Mt Smart Stadium with Reed set to throw it all on the line against the current World Number 5, Justin Brayton.
"When I heard [Justin] Brayton was heading to Auckland in November I rang the promoters and said, 'I'm in'," Reed stated.
"Last time we went head-to-head in the Southern Hemisphere it was an all-time battle at the AUS-X Open, but I got the upper hand and I plan to take him down again in Auckland this year!
"Just quietly, I hear I'm not the only World Champion heading to Mt Smart Stadium on November 24 so you all better grab tickets early because just like the AUS-X Open has for the last three years, seats will sell out."
Touted as one of the greatest Supercross showdowns New Zealand has ever seen, Reed, the 2016 AUS-X Open Sydney - Champion is hungrier than ever at the chance to claim the inaugural S-X Open Auckland and S-X Open Supercross International FIM Oceania Championship crown, after missing the back half of 2017 through injury.
‰ÛÏI‰Ûªve never raced Supercross in Auckland, so I‰Ûªm really looking forward to heading there to compete for the first time, especially for the chance to win not only the S-X Open Auckland crown but becoming the first ever S-X Open International Supercross FIM Oceania Champion‰Û
