Troy Lee Designs Dives Into Spring Creek Motocross

AMA Motocross - Millville, MN

As the Lucas Oil National Motocross Series rolled into Millville, MN, last weekend, the Troy Lee Designs / Lucas Oil / MAVTV / Honda team was excited to welcome back Shane McElrath. Shane had been healing a sore back from the beginning of the season and was finally ready to race. Unfortunately, Malcolm Stewart is suffering from dehydration and was not up to the task of competing in the 450 division in Minnesota. With Stewart home recuperating, the TLD crew would focus intently on the 250 class.

The opening moto found TLD / MAVTV rider Shane McElrath inside the top ten and looking good. But all of that time on the couch healing up caught up with him and he dropped back to 17th in his first moto back. He explained that he just tightened up under the intensity of the race. His second moto didn't provide the same good start but he would hover around 15th position for the entire moto and eventually finish 16th for 17th overall.

TLD / Lucas Oil rider Cole Seely rode well in the opening moto, coming from a 15th place start to 7th at the finish. Cole showed that he has the speed and the fitness to be at the front by moving forward the entire race. In the second moto, Cole was circulating around 10th in the opening laps but a crash would send him to the back of the pack. Seely once again moved towards the front but could only get to 14th before the checkered flag dropped, securing 9th overall on the day.

Jessy Nelson had a difficult first moto. He didn't get the best of starts and just couldn't get into a rhythm. He logged a 14th in the opening moto but was determined to have a better showing the next time out. While he didn't get the holeshot he was hoping for, Jessy did ride much better the second time around and he advanced all the way to 8th position, giving himself a top ten finish in Millville with a 10th overall.

Thank you to all the fans who cheered along at Spring Creek last weekend, and to the faithful sponsors who allow the Troy Lee Designs / Lucas Oil / MAVTV / Honda team to go out each weekend and do what they love. See you in Washougal!
