Another AMA Supercross season has come and passed. This year has been nothing less then sitting on the edge of the seats cheering on our riders or in some cases yelling at the TV screen. After the past years of only 2 riders dominating each season, 2016 will be one to remember.
Troy Lee Designs had a solid program with riders Jessy Nelson, Mitchell Oldenburg, Justin Hill, Alex Frye, and Shane Mcelrath. The boys came out swinging at the first rounds of the 250 West Coast. They were here to win and wouldn't back down. Justin and Mitchell would show speed and talent to claim top spots in the west coast class. After an early injury for Nelson the rest of the team backed up Oldenburg as he would carry the crew to an awesome 6th place season finish.
Shane Mcelrath, Alex Frye, and Justin Hill were ready to represent on the other side. The Troy Lee Designs team went east coast, yeah there is a first time for everything. The east coast is stacked with talent just as the west coast is. The boys came out strong in the early rounds showing speed and consistency to run up front. After claiming fastest qualifiers and winning a main event an injury would sideline Justin. Shane and Alex stepped up and showed everyone the TLD boys were still in this fight finishing a top 15 in overall points.
AMA Motocross Series is right around the corner and we are stoked to continue our partnership with Troy Lee Designs. Good luck in outdoors!
