SACRAMENTO, CA – May 17, 2015 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Troy Lee Designs rider Cole Seely felt the full wrath of bad luck at the opening round at the Hangtown Motocross Classic, giving him an opportunity to show his perseverance when the series lines up again next weekend in Southern California. Seely’s opening lap crash took him out of contention during Moto 1 of the first round, eventually forcing him to sit out of the remaining moto of the day.
Seely’s first 450 Class race may not have gone according to plan, but his speed during the qualifying sessions gave him something to look forward to in the future. He posted the sixth-fastest lap time among the fastest racers in the world and he’ll look to Glen Helen in one-week’s time to turn out the results he knows he’s worthy of.
“Really excited to start my rookie season in the 450 Class, unfortunately I crashed on the first lap in Moto 1,” said Seely. “That took me out and it wasn’t going to be smart of me to line up for Moto 2. I’m healthy and will be ready to line up at Glen Helen. We’ll try again next week. Thanks to everyone who supports me and backs me no matter what.
Glen Helen Raceway will host the second round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship Series in San Bernardino, California next weekend on May 23.
