A breakthrough 2009 season dropped Cole Seely onto the map. Cole actually began his career as a BMX racer, riding without training wheels at age 2. He later competed in a few BMX nationals. But Cole liked motorcycles way too much – and later directed his focus to the sport.

Never an amateur standout, Cole even quit racing for a few months at age 16, but decided to come back and focus on having more fun. Since then, he’s been climbing upwards, scoring a ride with Troy Lee Designs Honda, and taking three Supercross Lites victories.

Watch for Oakley’s MX young gun as he continues to make his charge toward a Lites title.
