Australian Chad Reed has been forced out of the remainder of the 2019 Monster Energy AMA Supercross Championship following injuries received in a nasty crash at round 12 in Seattle over the weekend.
The JGRMX Yoshimura Suzuki Factory Racing rider got loose off a jump at the start of the main event which caused a chain reaction that resulted in a pile up that also took out Honda's Justin Brayton.
Overnight Reed let fans know his condition and confirmed the crash has resulted in the 32-year-old having to sit out the remaining five rounds.
"Yesterday was fun," Reed stated on his Instagram account, "Finally a halfway technical track; The whoops were so freaking awesome loved every pass, unfortunately a mistake in the main was costly. 8 broken ribs, broken scapula and a collapsed lung. I‰Ûªm bummed my year comes to an end with five to go.
