Chad Reed fires up his Kawasaki KX450F

Monster Energy Kawasaki’s newest rider Chad Reed made an impressive debut with his new team by reclaiming the Monster Energy Super X Championship in his native country of Australia.

Competing on a Kawasaki for the first time since 2001, Reed put his KX450F on the top step of the podium four times during the seven race season, including wins at the final three events.

Chad Reed Speaks…

"The Monster Energy Super X series was great. I was able to win back-to- back titles and my second championship of 2009. Getting this championship on the KX450F for the Monster Energy Kawasaki team is a great way to start our relationship. Racing in Australia was great for me to get used to my new team and bike. I feel good about my riding and my prep for 2010."

"The Monster Energy Super X series is growing," continued Reed. "In only its second year, we saw great tracks and large crowds. For the first time we traveled to New Zealand for an event and all the riders stepped it up and rode awesome, making it hard on me to win the title."

Reed is not only the two-time champion of the Australian series but also one of the organizers.

Reed is now headed back to the United States to continue his preparation for the 2010 Monster Energy Supercross season, which begins Saturday, January 9 at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, Calif.
