Just days after wrapping up third place in the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship, Chad Reed is pulling on the green and gold jersey in readiness to represent Australia at the weekend's MX des Nations.
Hosted by France for its 65th instalment, the annual event is an important one for the proudly patriotic Reed, who will race his TwoTwo Motorsports/Bel-Ray Racing machine in the MX1 class.
Fellow AMA frontrunner Brett Metcalfe will join Reed in the 450cc class, with Australian MX Nationals Pro Lites champion Matt Moss flying the flag on his 250.
