Australian AMA Supercross Champion Chad Reed has put Motocross/Supercross back in the Australian main stream media headlines once again, this time for his bulging bank balance.
22-year-old Reed placed fourth in the Business Review Weekly (BRW) magazine's top 50 sports rich list. Beating Reed to the top spot on the podium was golfer Greg Norman, Tennis Ace Lleyton Hewitt and Soccer star Harry Kewell.
With earnings of $6.5 million for the 2004 season, Reed out paced stars such as Swimmer Ian Thorpe, boxer Kostya Tszyu but was well of the pace when it came to Greg Norman's $230 million
Reed's next outing will be at Anaheim in California for the opening round of the AMA Supercross Championship where he will defend his current title.
