Cole Seely will stay with Honda HRC in the premier class through the 2018 season after inking a two-year contract extension with the factory squad.

The Californian looks forward to a continued relationship with Honda, a manufacturer he has spent seven of his eight professional seasons representing.

“I’m really excited about re-signing with American Honda,” Seely said. “Riding for such a great team has been a dream come true, so it’s an honor to be able to continue that relationship. I have an awesome crew around me and we get along great.”

The former Monster Energy AMA Supercross rookie of the year is confident in his ability and will be shooting for a title for the Honda HRC team.

“With the success we had during my rookie and sophomore years, I feel confident we can pull off many more wins and hopefully get a title,” he added. “I appreciate everything the team has done to keep me comfortable and am looking forward to more success together.”

Seely, who has been out since the RedBud Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship round, is expected to miss the remainder of the series as he recovers from a finger injury.
