The Troy Lee Designs / Lucas Oil / Honda team is proud to announce that we have extended an agreement with young rider, Jessy Nelson, through 2015, and potentially beyond.
As the 2012 AMA Rookie of the Year, Jessy expected big things coming into the 2013 season. Unfortunately, a few injuries this summer put the brakes on his 2013 racing plans, but those roadblocks havent stopped Nelson from optimistically looking ahead to 2014.
Im so excited to be staying here with Troys team, says Nelson. I love the atmosphere here and I know our equipment is the best, so theres no reason I cant win races. This year was a bit of a bummer with the injuries and stuff, but Im already looking forward to next year and I expect a lot out of myself.
The Troy Lee Designs team has been awaiting Jessys return to the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Nationals this summer after an elbow injury placed him on the sidelines. As of now, no date has been set for Nelsons return, but he is getting close.
We havent decided a date for his return but hes healing up and it shouldnt be long before hes back out there, explains team manager Tyler Keefe. We just want to make sure hes 100%.
Look for Jessy to return at a National later this summer.
