Chad Reed and Thor MX Separate

Motorcycle Industry News

After a nine-year relationship that resulted in five American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) titles across the supercross and motocross disciplines, Thor MX and veteran Australian rider Chad Reed are parting ways.

Since coming to the U.S. in 2002, Reed has been a member of the Thor MX and Parts Unlimited family, contributing tremendously to the brand’s longstanding presence at the top of the motocross apparel industry.

His racing résumé has solidified his standing as one of the most prolific riders in the history of the sport and has allowed Reed to become the most successful international competitor of all time.

Thor MX and Parts Unlimited would like to thank Reed for his years as part of the Thor MX family and wish him the best of luck with his new family and all future endeavors.

Reed, who competes on the Monster Energy Kawasaki, has suffered from the Epstein Barr Virus, which took him out of most of the AMA Motocross season. Also, he pulled out of Australia’s 2010 MX of Nations team due to the virus.
