CORONA, CA – May 13, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Troy Lee Designs rider Cole Seely may be considered a rookie lining up on the starting gate at the opening round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship this weekend, but he’s riding into the Hangtown Motocross Classic with the tenacity and determination he developed over a hard-fought supercross season. What he learned earned him third overall in the championship and will be an invaluable resource as he faces off against the best in the world this Saturday.
Last season was one of Seely’s best as he competed in the 250 Class for the last time. He only finished outside the top-10 overall four times, scoring an overall podium finish at Glen Helen Raceway.
“I learned so much during the supercross season and it’s definitely got me excited to tackle my next challenge – outdoors,” said Seely. “Outdoors is definitely a beast of its own, but I think we have done the necessary preparation to be in the mix up front.”
