Cole Seely: Against the grain

For most of Cole Seely’s career, he has done just that—gone against what is believed the norm. Instead of chasing around the amateur national circuit and battling against the best in the country, Seely decided to keep things local. Admittedly, it may not have been a choice that helped his young career, but it kept things fun—something that has always been key for him.

Flash forward to today, and not much has changed, except for the fact that he’s a top contender in the 2016 Monster Energy Supercross 450 championship, but how? If you were on the outside looking in, it doesn’t make much sense. Everything that he does goes against the grain. Motocross professionals are supposed to live in Southern California’s “Inland Empire.” They’re supposed to be grinding away day-in and day-out on long, grueling road bike rides. That’s the secret to success in the professional ranks, right? Well, not entirely. Instead, you can find the HRC Honda rider fine tuning his skills on a 20-inch bicycle out at Sheep Hills in Orange County, California, and then kicking back at his home on the coastal waters of Laguna.

For Seely, it all goes back to the beginning—keeping things fun.
