Alex Martin has announced that he will miss the final two rounds of the 2017 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship due to the shoulder injury he sustained in a practice crash. The Troy Lee Designs/GoPro/Red Bull/KTM rider has not lined up since the 2017 Spring Creek MX and the absence has dropped him from second in the championship to fifth. With four points-paying motos left to be run in the summer, he will fall further down the top ten.
Unfortunately I will have to miss the last two rounds of @promotocross as my shoulder has not healed enough to go racing. Can't thank the team and everyone enough for the support this season!!@tld_moto @ktmusa @redbull @gopro @adidas @avn_on2wheels @alpinestars @oakleymotorsports @fmf73 @polarglobal @iamspecialized @renthal_moto @ctikneebraces @karcherme @naturesbakery @ridedunlop @motorexusa 📸 @acubillos_19
