Troy Lee Designs is proud to announce the one-year signing of rising star Jessy Nelson to the Troy Lee Designs / Lucas Oil / Honda Amateur Race Team.

Jessy placed third in 250A and third in 450A at Loretta Lynn's Amateur Nationals this year. For 2012, Jessy will race the Mini O's Winter Olympics (Florida), Mill Creek (Alabama), Oak Hill (Texas), Mammoth (California), World Minis (Nevada) and Loretta Lynn's (Tennessee) before making his pro debut.

The talented young rider enters the new year with a heap of confidence. "I am excited to be with the Troy Lee Designs Lucas Oil Honda team again for 2012," says Nelson. "I had some ups and downs last year and I feel that one more year in the amateur ranks will help me grow and mature, and be ready for my pro debut."

Team manager, Tyler Keefe, is also excited about keeping Jessy Nelson. "Jessy is a great kid and has a ton of natural talent," says Keefe. "It has been fun working with him in the past year and helping him grow as a rider. I am very confident in Jessy and look forward to his pro debut for the last few rounds of the Motocross series."

Nelson joins Cole Seely, Christian Craig, Travis Baker, and Tarah Gieger under the Troy Lee Designs / Lucas Oil / Honda tent.
