Brea, CA (August 29, 2018) – The Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team is pleased to announce that Alex Martin has signed a two-year contract to race the Suzuki RM-Z250. The multi-race winner and title contender will contest the 250 regional Supercross series and 250 National Championship.

Hailing from Millville, Minnesota, Martin has an impressive racing resume. The 28-year-old has earned two National wins, three Supercross podiums, 18 outdoor podiums, and a combined 84 top-ten finishes. Martin has twice finished runner-up in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship.

“I’m very happy to be joining the team and excited for the next two years,” stated Martin. “The resources that the Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing Team has to offer, along with the facility at JGRMX in North Carolina, will be a huge benefit. Suzuki is coming out with a brand-new RM-Z250 for 2019, and I’m excited to get great results on the bike. I am looking forward to the next few years!”

Autotrader/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing team manager Jeremy Albrecht is eager to work with the veteran. “I’m pumped that a rider of Alex’s caliber will be on the all-new Suzuki RM-Z250. Our goal is to win races, both in Supercross and the Nationals. Alex is extremely disciplined, a proven winner, and has that hunger to succeed. I feel really good about our chances in 2019 and beyond.”

Finally official! Hope Alex does well on the new bike. I'd hate to see him go backwards and JGR needs a rider that can finish top 5 indoors and out on a 250

I wish Troll the best! Suzuki used to always have top guys in the small bore class in the 125 days, and I hope this new bike and JGR Factory effort can help Suzuki back up at the top of the leader board.

Cool! I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do on the bike. I wonder what Tyler thinks?

In supercross Idc what anyone says that’s a good bike. It won’t hold Alex back but outdoors will be the real test.hopefully that new bike is what jgr needs

Good for Amart. A lot of work and dedication rewarded for him and his family. Anyone else notice he will be 30 when the contract is up ?

A-Mart isn't "form Texas" but I'm sure Tyler is excited just the same.

He didnt looked fully comfortable on the ktm, hopefully the good chassis that the zook is knonw for helps him, really want him to win at least one title.

|

8/29/2018 12:20 PM

AMart, on a zook, wins a title. This place would melt in 5 seconds flat. Kinda wanna see it

Lets hope Suzuki knocked some weight off that new 250... Coming off a works KTM 250F will have him spoiled by now. Especially for Outdoors.

Idk what went wrong for Alex the last part of the season...no denying that something was wrong. Hope he can get back on track.

Man I hope they can get that bike working. It's a long way off the PC, Star & KTM bikes.

AMart having a good season next year will be exactly what JGR needs to prove they're a legit 250 effort. I'm kind of wondering if there will be a opportunity in the second year for him to bump up to the 450 like Hill did?

I doubt his second year is 450 option, likely 250.

I imagine having your brother get busted up pretty good in the same class you are racing has an affect on you, even if you say it doesn't

Now this is really cool news , and I'm stoked for Alex. Glad he found a new home.

|

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Awesome ! Hoping he has a successful 2019.

Speak softly and carry a big stick.

8/29/2018 10:25 PM

Thats a big risk. Just like the new honda 250s were supposed to be good.

|

8/30/2018 12:00 AM

He will be a lifetime 250 rider ,should no on the 450.

As light as A Mart is I don’t think the Suzuki’s lack of power in the 250f will effect him as much as it would say plessinger grin
