Michael Byrne | RCSX Talk

Michael Byrne is one of the friendliest guys to come through the sport of motocross, and the Aussie has been retired for a few years now, putting his main focus into longtime friend Chad Reed’s race program. Byrne and Reed are long time friends, and have been tightly knit when it comes to Chads race prep and bike testing these last few years. We miss seeing “The Byrner” at the races, but everyones time for retirement comes at some point. Luckily for amateur race fans at the Daytona RCSX this weekend, they’ll get to see him dust off the race boots and line up for some classic vet-pro class action all in the name of fun. We talked to him quickly in between his busy day at Chads, and he mentioned how little seat time he’s had! Press play to hear about Byrne’s “comeback” to gate drops at RCSX.
