Alex Martin was destined to race professional motocross. His father, John, was a National Hare Scrambles Champion. John became the owner of the famed Millville motocross track in 1987, which has become a staple of the AMA National circuit. Alex and his younger brother, Jeremy, the new 250 AMA National Champion, literally grew up on the Millville track. The family’s house overlooks the treacherous sand-whoop section that the circuit is known for.
Now 24 years old, Alex has learned the ropes of racing at the highest level. Turning Pro in 2008, Martin has steadily improved his overall ranking each year, and with results have come increased support, first from Chad Sanner’s Eleven10 Mods team and currently from the CycleTrader.com Rock River Yamaha team. This year, Alex finished eighth in the 250 East Supercross series in what is his second season with the Rock River Yamaha program.
