Cole Seely is one of the hottest up-and-coming talents on the Monster Energy Supercross Series. The 22-year-old motocross star from Newberry Park, California, has impressed his peers with one of the most aesthetically pleasing riding styles out there. His tail-whipping flair and fluid lines can be traced back to his BMX roots, along with his favorite form of working out nowadays.
Cole Seely’s mountain bike is one of the most important tools in his Supercross training regimen, and because this is the kind of training he can’t get enough of, he’s one of the fittest riders on tour.
Racing 20 laps around a Supercross track chasing the likes of 250SX class riders like Ken Roczen and Eli Tomac is far more grueling than it looks. And as Chris Denison of Dirt Rider magazine sees it, “Seely is one of those guys that fights for every lap. That’s his BMX background at work. He doesn’t give an inch.”
Of course, not giving an inch requires a healthy dose of determination and endurance, which is where Seely’s mountain bike comes into play. “I try to do it every day,” says Seely in the video below. “That’s where I get my endurance. … and that’s where I get most of my physical strength. It’s an awesome training tool, and hands down one of the funnest things I can do for anything like that.”
Not surprisingly, all that training means Seely is pretty damn good while riding his Specialized mountain bike. See for yourself by pressing play.
