After a season hindered by injury, Jeremy Martin’s 2021 campaign of Pro Motocross has come to a close prematurely by way of a broken wrist sustained in the opening moto at Ironman.

Martin entered the 10th round of the 2021 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship on the heels of a dominant second moto win at Budds Creek, eventually coming through the pack to pressure Jett Lawrence for the lead in moto one.

Unfortunately for Martin, his charge to the front would end the same way his 2021 Supercross season started, with a broken wrist as he hit the ground hard in a brutal crash.

“Really bummed to crash like that in moto 1 after feeling so strong on my Star Racing Yamaha,” Martin explained. “I’m proud I gave it a shot riding through injury this year and can rest my head at night knowing I did everything I could for my team and myself! Thank you to everyone for the support this year.”

Early in the year, Martin shared that his plan was to make the jump to the 450 class in 2022. But after being stifled by injury throughout the season, he’s set to rejoin the Monster Energy Star Racing Yamaha squad as a 250 rider next season.

“I’m really excited to be back with Monster Energy Star Yamaha Racing for 2022,” Martin explained. “I haven’t had the year I was hoping for, so I’m very grateful to do what I love and have another opportunity to race my butt off for some championships next year.

“The team and I have had a lot of success together over the years, and we look to build on that.”
