Reardon was set to make his debut AMA Supercross ride with JDR KTM at Anaheim, but the injury will make the rider wait. Reardon will be campaigning nex to Tye Simmonds in the 450 Class, racing a 350 SX-F.

Reardon is set to contest in the first rounds of AMA Supercross before returning to the Rockstar Energy MX Nations in Australia with JDR Motorsports KTM.
