After suffering a burst fracture to his vertebrae in the 2018 Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship, Jeremy Martin was forced to miss the entire 2019 season. He underwent surgery but had complications following it, which required a second surgery in January. After several months of rehab (and getting a job), he got back on his bike in August for the first time since the crash.
Yesterday, he announced on Instagram that he will soon be making his return to racing—a little earlier than we expected—by racing the Paris Supercross on November 9-10. The Paris Supercross is one of the bigger off-season events that American riders participate in. In the post, Martin also announced he will be racing in the 250SX East Region in 2020.
Below is Martin’s post:

All these features and much more inside the November issue.
