According to sources inside Yamaha, Chad Reed will sit out the remainder of the ’05 U.S. National season in order to undergo elective surgery to repair a problem with a hand/wrist. That will allow him enough time to recover and rehab for the U.S. Open in Las Vegas on October 7th and 8th.
Chad is still third place in the 250cc standings, even though he suffered a concussion that caused him to miss round eight of the National series in Washougal, WA. Most recently, Chad grabbed a bronze medal in yesterday’s Supermoto action at the X Games.
