Chad Reed undergoes surgery

Monster Energy Kawasaki rider Chad Reed underwent successful surgery to repair his broken left hand in California. Reed is expected to miss a minimum of six weeks recovering from the injury that occurred on Saturday night at Chase Field in Phoenix.

"This will be the first time Chad has ever missed a supercross," said Monster Energy Kawasaki Team Manager Mike Fisher. "I know Chad wants to be racing. His surgery went really well and will start his rehabilitation as soon as he can. We want him to be 100 percent when he returns so he can put his Monster Energy Kawasaki on the podium."

Reed’s teammate Ryan Villopoto scored his first podium finish of the season in Phoenix and is looking to earn his first win of the season at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Calif. this weekend. The team is currently exploring its options for an interim rider.
