When the 2012 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross season got underway, the Troy Lee/Lucas Oil/Honda team decided that young Jessy Nelson was ready to turn pro. With Cole Seely sidelined for outdoors, the team encouraged Nelson, their accomplished amateur rider, to show up at Hangtown and race the entire 2012 schedule. Just a few days before the race, having done some testing with the team, the 18-year-old rider agreed to skip Loretta's and line up with the pros.

 

Since joining the pro ranks, Nelson has proven to be fast off the starts. He picked up a couple holeshots in his rookie season, including his first one in just his 2nd pro race, the Freestone National. Although Nelson struggled at first to adjust to the longer motos, he turned in a solid season, finishing 9th in 250MX points and taking Rookie of the Year honors.

 

Nelson earned the first moto win of his career on August 16, 2014 at the inaugural national at Ironman Raceway.
