ATV Xteam - Chad McKay
Chad McKay has been a member of the Australian Can-am X-team since the beginning of 2009 and is stoked that he has been given another opportunity to race with the team in 2012. He is 22 years old and has ridden Quads for most of his life, but has only been seriously racing pro class quad motocross for the past 6 years. He lives in Perth, Western Australia and works as a diesel mechanic and driller in his families business, McKay Drilling.
The decision to sign with Can-am came late in 2008 after discussions with Mick Andrewartha of 47industries (X-team Manager) following the 2008 ATV MX Nationals. Now with a couple of successful years on the team behind him, including a win at the infamous Finke Desert Race in 2011, Chad is taking a break from competing at the top level to concentrate on his work and the new addition to his family due in June 2012, but he will continue his relentless training program in order to prepare himself for more racing later in the year and beyond.
