Cole Seely (shoulder) done for season

Cole Seely's rookie season in the 450 Class has come to an early end, as he recently underwent right shoulder surgery that will keep him sidelined for the final three rounds of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.

"My doctor said the surgery went well and that I'll be able to begin light rehab almost immediately," the Team Honda HRC rider said in a statement. "This setback is very disappointing though. I had such a great supercross season, but I've had nothing but challenges throughout the motocross series. We had hoped I would only be out for a couple weeks, but my shoulder was obviously worse than we thought and now I'll be missing the rest of the season. I'm committed to getting back to 100% as soon as possible and to helping the team prepare for the 2016 season."

The shoulder injury occured when Seely crashed during practice at Spring Creek. Injuries have unfortunately been a common theme for him this season, as Seely was limited to just four full rounds of racing this summer because of various ailments. He currently sits 14th overall in 450MX points.
