Cole Seely has been given the opportunity to show his skills on the American Honda Racing CRF450R as a fill-in rider for the injured Josh Grant. After testing the bike last week with the American Honda team, Cole was selected to ride.

Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Honda Team manager Tyler Keefe had this to say, "This is a great opportunity for Cole. He's an amazing person who works hard. I think his time on the 450 will elevate his racing knowledge. This is the stuff dreams are made of. Cole deserves this opportunity and the TLD / Lucas Oil / Honda team is behind him 100%. When the series heads back to the West coast and Cole gets back on his TLD / Lucas Oil / Honda CRF 250R, I think his time with American Honda on the 450 will help him generate even more speed that he can carry over into the outdoor nationals."
