Chad Reed Injury Update

Carlsbad, CA -- January 2, 2007 -- Supercross superstar Chad Reed suffered minor injuries late last week after crashing in practice.

During practice late last week, L&M Racing’s Chad Reed took a spill resulting in a fracture to his shoulder blade and a chipped collar bone. While Reed has met with some of the top doctors in the country, there isn’t much that can be done other than riding through the pain. Fortunately, the current 2007 World GP Championship points’ leader is well known for his ability to ride through the pain as evident in last years Daytona race where he finished second despite a severe shoulder separation. Chad will rest the remainder of the week and work with his doctors to determine if he will be able to compete Saturday in the opening round of the 2007 Supercross season.
