Reed Essentially Confirms Supercross-Only Deal for 2007

As we reported earlier, it is rumored that Chad Reed is working on a private team effort for 2007, including two riders (one of which will be Reed), and a supercross-only schedule.

Following the Hangtown National motocross race last weekend, Reed stated that this might be his final year racing outdoors — indicating that he was working on a supercross-only deal for 2007, as rumored. This certainly makes one wonder whether other top riders (such as James Stewart) will eventually race only supercross events, and leave the traditional, outdoor motocross race scene behind. If this is a trend, it was started by Jeremy McGrath several years ago when he formed his own team and raced only supercross events.
