Reed readies himself for AMA Motocross title defence

Posted:

Chad Reed is eagerly awaiting the opening round of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship at Hangtown, Sacramento (CA), this weekend where he will kick off defence of his 2009 450cc class title.

Now mounted aboard a Monster Energy Kawasaki KX450F, Reed feels a solid period of preparation for the outdoors riding style has him in good stead for the 12-round series.

The Australian's 2010 campaign begins in complete contrast to 2009. Just weeks before the season began, the then 27-year-old made the decision to contest the motocross series.

He defied the doubters by winning five overall rounds and secured the series spoils with an incredible four rounds still to run.

An injury early in the piece during this year‰Ûªs Supercross season allowed Reed to refocus on the outdoors challenge, working on his health and fitness while training on a purpose-built motocross track on his Florida property.

Reed remains adamant that wearing the #1 plate on his bike places no extra pressure on him to win a second consecutive title.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm really excited about getting back into riding this weekend and getting a good result in the books to start the new season,‰Û
