Jessy Nelson | New Colors

Jessy Nelson made his first real public appearance out at the Red Bull Straight Rhythm practice out at Milestone MX a couple weeks back, and it looked as if the TLD rider felt right at home on his new machine. Photo: Brendan Lutes

The off-season can be a crazy, unpredictable period of time for riders and mechanics; and from time to time, it can also be an unforeseeable time for the actual teams. Title sponsors can change, official gear sponsors may be swapped, and once in a while, teams may even switch to a completely different motorcycle manufacturer. Though it’s not completely uncommon for the latter to happen,  it usually creates quite the stir in the motocross community.

When Troy Lee Designs announced its switch to KTM a few weeks back, many were shocked, but the move created many new opportunities for the TLD race program. Jessy Nelson was the first rider announced for the 2015 team, and we recently had the chance to film him with his new colors.
