Seely Tops Podium at Final Round of All Japan MX National Championship

Posted:

Following the Monster Energy Cup, Team Honda HRC‰Ûªs Cole Seely journeyed across the Pacific to contest this weekend‰Ûªs final round of the All Japan MX National Championship. Competing at Sportsland Sugo in Mlyagi, Japan, Seely clinched the overall victory in the IA1 (450cc) class in dominant fashion.

The Californian set the tone early by laying down the fastest lap time in practice, then moving on to win his qualifying race. During both motos, Seely secured the early lead aboard his all-new 2017 CRF450R and rode uncontested to finish 1-1 on the day. There was more cause for celebration in the Honda pits as fellow HRC rider Akira Narita wrapped up his 11th IA1 championship and Tomohiro Nitsuka clinched the IA2 (250cc) championship.

It was a busy week for Seely and his Team Honda HRC crew, as they made stops at a number of Honda facilities before traveling to the race. They visited Honda Racing Corporation, Honda Motorcycle R&D in Asaka, the Honda Proving Ground in Tochigi and the Honda Collection Hall at Motegi Circuit. After the race, the team concluded their trek with a celebratory dinner.
