Team HRC Honda’s Cole Seely has delivered some great with the announcement that he is about to return to riding after almost five months away from his Honda CRF450.

Cole Seely hasn’t raced since sustaining a career-threatening injury on February 24, 2018, when he crashed at the Tampa round of Monster Energy Supercross. And race fans have been keenly following his rehabilitation ever since.

With excellent medical care and a mountain of courage and determination, Seely has recovered from multiple fractures in his pelvis and sacrum, and internal damage to his abdominal wall and rectal muscle. When you listen to Cole talk about his injuries (watch the video at the end of the article) it leaves in awe of what he has overcome to get to this point.

Seely announced the very welcome news on Instagram yesterday that he would return to riding today (Monday, August 20). “First day packing my gear bag in 6 months so you know I had to go for best dressed.. so excited to get back on the bike tomorrow,” he wrote.

We’re delighted to see Cole back and by the looks of the image posted on his account (see below), he’s going to look sharp AF. Welcome back to motocross Cole.

Feels good to be back in the saddle!
