Cole Seely’s road to Supercross stardom is a lot different than most. It starts in an apartment in California, where his parents put everything they have into Cole’s career….and then Cole quits racing at 16. When he returns months later, the pressure is lifted and it all comes together for Cole. He consistently places in the top 5 in 250 class and then moves up to 450’s. Right now, Cole is at the top of his game and at 27, the next few years should define his career.
