Troy Lee Designs’ Cole Seely Rounds Out Top 10 In Atlanta

ATLANTA, GA – February 28, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) –  Troy Lee Designs rider Cole Seely collected his eighth top-10 finish of the season Saturday night inside the Georgia Dome, making him only one of four riders to finish in the top 10 at every round so far in 2016.

Seely narrowly missed his first heat race win of the season, but transferred straight to the main event. Once the gate dropped in the main event, Seely worked his way through the pack after starting outside the top 10. He was making moves toward the front when he got tangled with another rider and went down. He was able to get back up and finish the night in 10th.

“After almost winning that heat race, I felt really confident for the main event,” said Seely. “I didn’t get the best start but I was picking off people and thought I had a chance to get up toward the front until I went down. From there I just wanted to get by as many people as possible.”

The 15-rider lineup sporting Troy Lee Designs GP Air Youth Starburst Flo Orange Racewear with Youth Air Glove, but it was all the No. 8 of Wyatt Bass. He claimed the victory over Connor Bullard and Landon Davis.
