TLD Signs Shane McElrath

October 19, 2012 6:20am

Troy Lee Designs is proud to announce the signing of rider Shane McElrath to the Troy Lee Designs / Lucas Oil / Honda Amateur Race Team.

Shane was a break out star at Loretta Lynn's 2012, setting the fastest lap time of the week as well as finishing 2nd overall in both the 250 B Stock and 450 B Mod classes. He also performed well at the Annual Vurb Classic, winning 9 out of 9 motos in his first pro outing.

Team manager, Tyler Keefe, is looking forward to working with Shane.

"Shane caught my eye when I was out at Loretta's looking for an amateur prospect. His corner speed and performance there is what made me want to make this happen."

McElrath joins Cole Seely, Christian Craig, Jessy Nelson, Tarah Gieger and new amateur rider Justin Hoeft under the Troy Lee Designs / Lucas Oil / Honda tent.
