Cole Seely Ties Season Best Result in Tennessee

The Troy Lee Designs rider is now sitting third in the championship standings

Troy Lee Designs rider Cole Seely narrowly missed the podium during the hottest race so far this season as he rode to a 3-6 moto result for fourth overall. Muddy Creek Raceway hosted its fourth event since the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship returned to the Southeast with Seely a front-runner in both hot and humid motos.

In the opening moto, Seely had one of his best starts of the season and quickly pulled into the lead. The Californian didn’t seem phased by the muggy weather and held solid speed the entire moto, finishing third.

The start of the second moto was much of the same with Seely making his way to the front early, but fell back a bit near the end and eventually settled for sixth. His 3-6 moto result was good enough to tie his best finish at Round 3. Seely’s consistency has paid off so far, now sitting third in the championship standings.

“It was a little bit of a bummer to not get on the podium after having such a good start to the day, but we’ve made our way into third in the points standings,” said Seely. “I can’t get down when the season overall is going well and we’re racing up front. We’ll just keep trying and hopefully get up there next weekend.”

The sixth round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship will celebrate Fourth of July weekend at Red Bud MX on July 2 in beautiful Buchanan, Michigan.
