Jeremy Martin has announced he will sit out the final two rounds of the 2017 Monster Energy Supercross Series 250 West Coast championship due to lingering issues from a recent practice crash. After a very difficult SX season, one that saw Martin miss multiple rounds due to crashes and injuries, the GEICO Honda rider has turned his attention to the upcoming 2017 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship and a run at a third possible 250 title.
Hey guys due to on going discomfort and pain from a herniated disc in my back. My team and I have decided it’s best for me to sit out SLC and Vegas and be 100% for the outdoors.. I am a racer and want to race no matter what but sometimes the best decision isn’t easy and goes against the racer inside me. I really want this third title and will be ready for major battles this summer. I’m very disappointed with missing three sx rounds already and how my sx season has gone this year so all the more reason to put everything into the outdoors since I’m out of the sx championship.
