In the land down under, Chad Reed is like the Michael Jordan of supercross. Now this Aussie is trying to take North America by storm too!

Chad Reed - Australian Roots

Chad Reed started riding motorcycles when he was just three and a half years old, and at four started racing them. His childhood dream was to come to America and race bikes. Chad won his first Australian Championship at the age of seven. He went on to win numerous amateur competitions and as a young pro in Australia, he won two Australian Supercross Championships.

Chad Reed - Coming to America

After a fine career in Australia, Chad Reed took his act to the USA in 2002. He started off racing in the 125 class for the East Coast Supercross League. He won all but two races that season and captured the East Coast Championship. In 2003, Chad moved up to the 250 class, where he finished the season third overall. The following year, Chad won 10 main events on his way to becoming the 2004 AMA Supercross Champion. The next few years after his victory, Chad continued to compete on the highest level, finishing second in the 2005 and 2006 AMA Supercross Championships.

Chad Reed - Achieving His Legacy

Although Chad has reached great success in American supercross, he still hasn't reached his goal of being the best in the sport. He and fellow supercross star James Stewart have been unable to take the top spot from Ricky Carmichael. When Chad won the AMA Championship in 2004, Ricky Carmichael was injured. While Chad is not the best in his sport yet, he has succeeded in making a name for Australian supercross riders.
