In between races, we took some time to browse our hard drives and look at photos taken throughout the year. We'll highlight each shot in a daily post, with the image sized to fit your computer screen or smartphone and described with a small backstory…
Alex Martin is a title contender in the 250 class for the 2017 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship. Although that might sound wild to some, consider the fact that Martin has continuously improved with each year in his pro career and has earned support from one of the biggest 250 teams in the pits, Troy Lee Designs/GoPro/Red Bull/KTM. His performance in moto one at the 2017 Thunder Valley MX was dominating, to say the least, as Martin claimed the holeshot and held off the full field for the win. How many more will he claim before the summer is done?
