Chad Reed has voiced his disappointment in not being selected to represent Australia at the 2018 Motocross of Nations in the USA. An obviously difficult decisions for selectors, but an unhappy Reed has taken to social media to express his side.
“Creating that post (in a previous Instagram post) made me smile with all those MXoN pictures. The memories instantly made me feel extremely proud.” Started Reed. “The MXoN is always marked on my calendar (19yrs now), the race being in the USA I immediately wanted to race! Representing Australia one last time in the USA where I have built my dream for the past 17 years seemed like an epic way to finish it off.”
Despite not racing the outdoors since 2015, Reed expressed his commitment to the event.
“Time was on my side to put in the effort required. I didn’t ask to be on the team because of current MX results- I asked for that special moment and I personally feel I’ve earned that chance. If @motorcyclingaustralia is focused on a winning team Why would they put the 2nd round of The Aussie SX championship on the same date.”
