Mantua's Jeremy Hand is at it again.

The standout motocross racer will again compete at the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship, which is recognized as the world's most prestigious off-road motorcycle series. The championship series will travel across the United States throughout 12 weeks this summer from May 20 to Aug. 26.

Hand, 21, graduated from Crestwood High School in 2015.

The championship series will feature two classes of competition: 250 and 450. The 250 class will include Hand, along with a collection of the sport's other rising stars. The 450 class is the championship's showcase.

Hand began riding his first bike at the age of 3 and was racing by the time he was 5.

His family has a deep-rooted history in the sport that spans 60 years. Hand's grandfather Albert was the first to race in England, before moving to Canada, Chicago, Cleveland and then Streetsboro. Hand's father Carl and his uncle Dave then passed the love of the sport to their sons Jeremy and Michael, respectively.

Select dates across the championship series will be televised nationally by NBCSN.
