ALEX MARTIN 2021 ORLANDO SUPERCROSS 2 INJURY UPDATE & VLOG VIDEO
Alex Martin’s crash on the opening lap of the Orlando Supercross #2 250 West Main Event on Saturday led to the race being red flagged and restarted. The crash wasn’t shown on TV, but you can see the crash in Alex Martin’s vlog video (shown below) at the 21:30-minute mark. The video shows Alex being kicked forward and then his front wheelie turned while he was riding a nose wheelie. This sent him over the bars and head first into the steep berm. Alex Martin made a post on instagram Wednesday after the Saturday night race and said: “Update Thanks to everyone that checked in after that scary crash in Orlando last weekend. Had to take some time away from all screens to give my head a break. Feeling better now and will be taking all the proper steps before I get back on the bike. Thanks for the support!!”
Now the 2021 Monster Energy Supercross season is taking it’s first break of 2021. There won’t be any racing this Saturday, February 27th, but the racing will get back under way with Round 9 of the series at the Daytona Supercross on March 6th. We don’t expect Alex to be back racing at Daytona, but we hope that he heals up quickly and we look forward to seeing him back on the track soon.
