During his opening heat race at the opening round of the 2022 FIM Supercross World Championship, and the British GP from Cardiff, Wales, Chad Reed went over the bars and down hard—prematurely ending his return to racing today. “Absolutely gutted”, Ellie Reed (Chad’s wife) said from her Instagram account. “Dislocated right shoulder, broken left hand, and broken ribs. In the ambulance now going to get more CT scans with my boys, Chad Reed and Josh Grant.”

It was awesome to see Chad back at the races despite it being short-lived. The former two-time AMA Supercross Champ qualified 8th heading into the night show and was running 6th in his heat race before the crash. We will try to bring you more updates as we get them. You can check out Ellie’s Instagram post below and see results and points from the opening round here.
