Two-time AMA Supercross king Chad Reed has joined the star-studded World series and will compete against current stars Ken Roczen and Justin Brayton for the MDK Motorsport team.
The announcement of Reed’s inclusion in the championship comes as the city of Melbourne – in his native Australia – has been confirmed as the host city for the second round of the championship, with racing taking place on Friday 21 and Saturday 22 October in the Marvel Stadium.
“Opportunities like WSX don’t come along every day. Growing up in Australia, I have always enjoyed an opportunity to grab my passport, travel the world, and ride my dirt bike,” said Reed.
“After two years of retirement, I have a new perspective on racing at the highest level. I am beyond excited to get back on the bike, into the athletic mindset and ready to compete to win in October.
“The WSX Championship going global is the biggest thing to happen to supercross in its history and I’m looking forward to joining Mark Kvamme and the MDK team. They possess the technical expertise, resources, and passion I need behind me to be successful.
“I haven’t raced in Melbourne since 2019, so it’ll be an unbelievable experience to get back here in October and go up against the best current riders in the world. It’s going to be an epic experience competing for an FIM-sanctioned world championship.”
