Troy Lee Designs Moto: July 22, 2016 Corona, CA.: Troy Lee Designs is proud to announce that we have extended our sponsorship of Cole Seely through 2018. 

Cole has shown signs of excellence since moving up to the 450 class and his results have been extremely impressive on the Factory Honda Team. 

“I am really stoked to be part of the TLD family. I have been with TLD since 2010 and I really love the style and functionality of their gear and especially what they have accomplished with the SE4 helmet. I always feel like I have the sickest kit when I line up at the gate!” states Cole. 

Troy Lee adds “I couldn’t be more pumped to continue our long-standing relationship with Cole. We have supported him since he was a little grom, watching him evolve into a top 450 rider has been awesome. Cole has such great style on and off the bike, which is what we are all about here at TLD.” 

Look for Cole to be running the complete new offering of @troyleedesigns gear and helmets throughout the 2017 & 2018 race seasons

BEL-RAY SPONSORED RACER KEN ROCZEN SECURES RUNNER UP FINISH AT AMA PRO MOTOCROSS CHAMPIONSHIP WASHOUGAL NATIONAL

Courtesy of Bel-Ray


FARMINGDALE, N.J. (July 26, 2016)Bel-Ray sponsored racer Ken Roczen of RCH Soaring Eagle/Jimmy Johns/Suzuki Factory Racing team finished as the 450MX class runner up at the July 23 AMA Pro Motocross Championship in Washougal, Wash.

Roczen kicked moto one off with a great start. Looking to secure his 14th moto win of the 2016 season, Roczen maintained his 10 second lead and secured another victory in the first moto. Despite finishing as the runner up for moto two, Roczen was able to maintain his 55 point lead over his closest competitor, before heading into a break before the 10th round of the season.

“I’m pretty happy,” said Roczen. “Washougal hasn’t been one of my favorite tracks. I had a great first moto but that was the driest I’ve ever seen the track. Obviously, the sun and the shadows played a role later in the day so that was a little sketchy, too. I grabbed two good starts so overall I’m happy with the day. We’re going into a couple weeks break so I think that will be handy for everyone. It’s all good.”

Bel-Ray’s family of sponsored riders achieved the following results at the ninth round of the 2016 AMA Pro Motocross Championship:

·         Ken Roczen – (1-2) 2nd overall in the 450MX Class at Washougal National

·         Christophe Pourcel – (37-6) 13th overall in the 450MX Washougal National
·         Zach Osborne – (5-33) 13th overall in the 250MX Class at Washougal National
·         Martin Davalos – (12-32) 16th overall in the 250MX Class at Washougal National

Independent Racers
·         Kevin Rookstool – (20-38) 24th overall in the 450MX Class at Washougal National
·         Ronnie Stewart – (38-25) 33rd overall in the 450MX Class at Washougal National
·         Gared Steinke – (22-39) 34th overall in the 250MX Class at Washougal National

BEL-RAY SPONSORED RIDERS MAX NAGL AND MAX ANSTIE FINISH FIRST AND THIRD AT FIM MOTOCROSS WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP CZECH REPUBLIC

Courtesy of Bel-Ray


FARMINGDALE, N.J. (July 26, 2016) – Bel-Ray sponsored racers and Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing riders Max Nagl and Max Anstie secured podium finishes at the FIM Motocross World Championship Czech Republic. Nagl claimed his first MXGP victory on the 2016 season, while Anstie finished third in the MX2 Class on July 24.                                             


Nagl started round 13 of the FIM Motocross World Championship in second place and maneuvered his way into first place by the second lap. Nagl remained in the lead for the rest of the race to secure the win. In the second race, Nagl was able to work his way into third place by the end of the first lap. In the sixth lap, Nagl was in first place and continued to keep his lead.

“It was a great GP for us,” said Max Nagl. “Despite only having the 14th gate pick, I managed to get two great starts in the final motos. I wanted to avoid being passed by any means, so I gave it all to remain out front until the end. My plan was to put pressure on him and that’s exactly what happened. He made a mistake a few laps before the end and when I got the lead I just went for it. Getting two race wins for my first overall victory this season is just great. It’s so good for the team and a great confidence booster for me as well.” 

After not getting his desired start in moto one, Max Anstie was able to recover and finish third overall in the MX2 class. After starting moto one in 10th, Anstie was able to launch his way through the field into second place. For moto two, Anstie worked his way to the second by the halfway point. He made a quick move into the lead near the end, but suffered from a small crash before finishing in third.

“It was a solid weekend for sure and we can be happy with it,” said Anstie. “All of my practice sessions and races were good and I felt pretty good on my bike. It was nice to get a podium result in this track, even though I knew we could have done better. In moto one I didn’t get a good start and had to battle through the pack for second. Then in moto two…I tried really hard to pass him for the overall win, but it didn’t end up so well. I’d used a lot of my energy trying to come forward in moto one so there was not much left in the tank. It’s just one of those things.”

Fellow Bel-Ray supported racers who also competed in Czech Republic include Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing riders Conrad Mewse (MX2) and Christophe Charlier (MXGP).

Bel-Ray’s family of sponsored riders achieved the following results in the Czech Republic:

·         Max Nagl – 1st place overall, MXGP Class at 2016 FIM World Championship Czech Republic (3rd in points overall)
·         Max Anstie – 3rd place overall, MX2 Class at 2016 FIM World Championship Czech Republic (7th in points overall)
·         Thomas Covington (15-4) 8th place overall, MX2 Class at 2016 FIM World Championship Czech Republic (13th in points overall)
·         Conrad Mewse – 9th place overall, MX2 Class at 2016 FIM World Championship Czech Republic (19th in points overall)
·         Christophe Charlier – 14th place overall, MXGP Class at 2016 FIM World Championship Czech Republic (13th in points overall)
