Alex and Jeremy Martin are in the top five overall, separated by just a few points as they head into this weekend’s LaâCrescent Wine & Spirit Spring Creek National in Millville.
In a sibling rivalry between two brothers, there can be a symbolic moment when the younger of the two eclipses the older one — even if it’s something as simple as a game of 1-on-1 in the driveway.
When that moment arrived for motocross riders Alex Martin, 26, and his younger brother Jeremy, 23, the elder Martin admits he wasn’t ready.
“Growing up I was always faster and stronger. Then it was about three years ago when the roles kind of reversed, and he was faster than me,” Alex Martin said. “He caught me off-guard. And that was a tough transition for me, when you’re always the faster, stronger one and then suddenly your little brother starts beating you.”
