It’s official, Chad Reed will pursue the 2014 Monster Energy Supercross title while riding for his own team, TwoTwo Motorsports.

Reed, a multi-time supercross and motocross champion, ended months of speculation when he released several tweets Friday night regarding his future plans.

 

 

It was rumored that Reed would join RCH Racing, a team led by Ricky Carmichael and Carey Hart. The switch would have placed Reed back on a Suzuki for the first time since 2009 – a season in which he won three races and battled with rival James Stewart for the title, ultimately falling short by a mere four points.

Ryan Dungey, Justin Barcia and Eli Tomac will fly the banner for Team USA at this year’s Motocross des Nations, which will be held in Teutschenthal, Germany on September 28-29.

Dungey, who returns to MXoN for a fifth straight year, will compete in the MX1 class (450cc). Newly crowned 250 motocross champion Tomac will run MX2 (250cc) with Barcia racing Open.

Long-time team manager and multi-time motocross world champion Roger DeCoster will return to manage the all-star lineup in its quest to reclaim the coveted MXoN winner’s trophy.

“The strength for the Americans is that everybody always works together as a team,” DeCoster said. “Often, that is not the case for other teams. Another of our strengths is our fans. The American fans are very much behind this race.”

The 2013 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, sanctioned by AMA Pro Racing, will make its inaugural visit to the greater Salt Lake City area this Saturday, August 17, for the debut of the Built Ford Tough Utah National from Tooele’s state-of-the-art Miller Motorsports Park. The new event will serve as the penultimate round of the 12-race series, which features the most talented field of competitors in over four decades of competition.

The Built Ford Tough Utah National will be the first professional outdoor motocross event to be held in the state of Utah since 1973. The event will take place on a brand-new motocross track constructed in the northeast corner of MMP’s East Road Course. Monster Energy Kawasaki’s Ryan Villopoto looks to continue his success this season by becoming the first 450 Class winner at the new venue, which could result in the points leader clinching his second 450 Class Championship with one round to go in the series.
