Troy Lee Designs rider Cole Seely rode a solid and consistent main event to land him in 6th in the opening round of Supercross. With a strong finish, Seely is easily in the hunt for a championship as one of 17 rounds is now in the books.
The day started on a positive note with Seely clocking the third fastest lap time of qualifying practice. He was able to transfer quickly through his heat race where he finished fourth. This helped Seely pick a good gate for the main event. He jumped out to a fast top-10 start, eventually making his way up to sixth when the checkered flag flew.
“After so much testing and practice, it’s always nice to get the first race out of the way and do well in the process,” said Seely. “I wish we could have been up on the podium, but it gives us something to reach for next week. I’m looking forward to San Diego.”
The next stop of the Monster Energy Supercross tour brings Seely to Petco Park in San Diego, California.
