During practice July 18 for Spring Creek Motocross in Millville, Minn., round eight of the 2015 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, Team Honda HRC’s Cole Seely suffered a crash. The Honda CRF450R pilot dislocated his right shoulder during the wreck. Further examination showed much more damage, which required surgery.

And on Wednesday, Honda reported that Seely underwent successful shoulder surgery at Newport Center Surgical in Newport Beach, Calif., where Dr. Warren G. Kramer repaired a Bankart lesion in the glenoid labrum.

Seely’s recovery can take a few months. He will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2015 Motocross season, but is hoping to return to action for 2016 Supercross.

“My doctor said the surgery went well and that I’ll be able to begin light rehab almost immediately,” Seely said. “This setback is very disappointing though. I had such a great Supercross season, but I’ve had nothing but challenges throughout the motocross series. We had hoped I would only be out for a couple weeks, but my shoulder was obviously worse than we thought and now I’ll be missing the rest of the season. I’m committed to getting back to 100% as soon as possible and to helping the team prepare for the 2016 season.”

“It’s unfortunate to see Cole’s season end this way, but it’s better for him to get his shoulder fixed now so he can begin the recovery process and start looking forward to 2016,” said Team Honda HRC manager Dan Betley. “This outdoor season has been a challenge in terms of injuries, but we know that’s a part of this sport. Cole has the full support of all the crew members and everyone at Honda, and we know he’s committed to making a complete recovery to return to racing at his full potential.”
