Now we've heard from the other side, as Chad Reed's teammate Josh Grant has taken to Instagram to express his thoughts on the TwoTwo team shutting down. He sent out a huge thanks to Chad and Ellie Reed, "Chad & Ellie - As a fellow business owner, I respect your decision to do what is best for your family. Thank you for the opportunity to further my career & helping me achieve my most consistent Supercross season thus far."
The surprising part is apparently a recent string of events has left Josh questioning if he'll come back to race again, posting: "TO MY FANS -I don't know what the future holds for me. I'm not sure I'll be racing a motorcycle next year. Maybe my crash before Hangtown & knee injury in CO are a sign that this is the way things are supposed to unravel. Thank you for keeping me going the past 4 years. Ashley & I trust God's plan for us & have managed to stay calm and let our faith guide us through & to our next chapter in life. We will keep everyone posted on what's next."
Grant was solid down the stretch in Monster Energy Supercross, with nine top tens in the final 11 races, with a season-best fourth at Houston and fifth at the Las Vegas finale. He was finally entering Lucas Oil Pro Motocross with momentum, until a practice crash days before the Hangtown opener left him battered, bruised, and out of the opener. He tried to return for Glen Helen, but ended up injuring his knee at round three at Thunder Valley. Grant hasn't been a stranger to injuries or setbacks throughout his career. Now we'll see if this really is the end or not for one of the flat-out fastest riders of his generation.
