Chad Reed Out for AUS-X Open | News

Some bad news landed over the weekend with Chad Reed confirming he won't be fit to race the 2017 AUS-X Open in Sydney, 11-12 November due to an ankle injury sustained at Red Bull Straight Rhythm.

I've been slow on the unfortunate news in respect to @ausxopen The one race on my calendar I look forward to most is the Sydney @ausxopen This years race was always going to have its challenges but nothing I wasn't up for Unfortunately my slight over jump last week resulted in two fractures to my ankle (talus) I saw my specialist and the best chance at a healthy fast recovery was to do surgery So unfortunately I won't be able to compete in in two weeks time BUT I'll make the trip down to see as many fans as possible As for 2018, The goal remains the same!
