REED TO HAVE SURGERY TODAY

Chad Reed is scheduled to have surgery today to repair a damaged shoulder. Reed apparently hyper-extended the shoulder while playing pool, and that aggravated the shoulder he dislocated a few years ago while racing in the States. According to Yamaha, the Australian will miss the first two rounds of the World Supercross, but plans on racing the opening round of the U.S. Supercross Series which kicks off the first weekend in January at Anaheim, California's Edison Field.
