Reed to lead star-studded Australian Motocross of Nations Team

Posted:

Motorcycling Australia (MA)has revealed thee Australian Team for the 2011 FIM Motocross of Nations (MXoN) to be held in St Jean d' Angely, France on 18 September 2011.

In a coup for the event Two-time FIM Supercross World Champion and current AMA Motocross Championship leader Chad Reed will lead the Australian Team in France.

Reed will be joined in the MX1 (450cc) class by fellow AMA Motocross star Brett Metcalfe, with the South Australian native looking to improve on his amazing efforts in 2010.

Rounding out the star-studded team in the MX2 (250cc) class will be two-time Australian Motocross Pro Lites Champion Matt Moss. Four times Australian Champion Jay Marmont and Dean Ferris will be the two reserve riders

Elated to be returning to the Australian Team setup, Reed said the opportunity to represent his country on the biggest stage in Motocross was the dream of every rider.

"As an athlete, regardless of the sport, there is no higher honour then to represent your country at the highest level," Reed said.

"Despite my success I've had on three different continents there is still a very special feeling, something very unique about wearing the Green and Gold for Australia."

Sporting one of the strongest rider line-ups likely to be assembled in France, Reed is confident the Aussie Team can match it with best and fight for a podium finish.

"When you look at the calibre of riders that have missed out it just shows you how strong Motocross is in Australia," Reed said.

"We've got Metty (Metcalfe) riding in the MX1 class which is fantastic because he's been consistent on the AMA Motocross scene for years now and has delivered big performances at the MXoN before.

"Also Mossy (Moss) has been dominating the Pro Lites in Australia for the past few years, so we've got great riders right across the board.

"I know it's going to be tough but I think with the quality we have a podium finish should be our aim."
