Martin Still Injured

Today, GEICO / Honda’s Jeremy Martin announced that he will sit out the remaining rounds of the 2017 Western Regional 250SX Championship and focus on returning at Hangtown for a run at his third 250 AMA Motocross Championship.

Jeremy sent out these words from his @jeremymartin6 Instagram account,

“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.”
