With his dad, John, collecting AMA Hare Scrambles Championships and then buying and operating the Spring Creek Motocross Park in Millville, Minnesota, you'd think Alex and his brother Jeremy Martin were born with throttles in their hands. In this episode of the Racer X Exhaust Podcast, Jason Weigandt digs into Alex's racing story and finds out a full-time professional career wasn't really on the radar—in fact, his parents didn't really even encourage it. Alex had to figure it all out on his own, which took quite a bit of time. That might be why the Minnesota native only found his stride in his late twenties and is still pushing hard at age 30. Have a listen as one of the smartest, most down-to-earth guys in the factory pits shares some training and diet ideas as well. There's a lot to learn from a rider who had to learn a lot on his own.
