Jeremy Martin injury bringing a close to outdoor season 2018
Jeremy Martin was on his way to a really impressive 2018 out door season. With some key injuries he definitely had the opportunity to be on the podium round after round. His previous rounds stacked up like this.
- hangtown – 44
- glen helen – 38
- Thunder Valley – 47
- High Point – 22
- Tenn National – 25
As you can see he was finding himself on the podium a good bit in a short period of time. It’s been fun watching his success this season. He did well last outdoor season and gave the fans something to look forward too.
Injuries are scary for the rider, the family, and the team. So it’s was good to hear an update from the Geico Honda group. On the 6/24/2018 post from his team they stated
“update- great news from the neurosurgeon this morning. J mart will undergo surgery tomorrow to stabilize his L1 fracture. He will be able to begin walking and therapy almost immediately after surgery.
Recovery time is looking to be around 2 months. So the season is done however, we’re thankful it isn’t worse and that he is in good spirits!
Jeremy Martin stated on his post
“Incredibly disappointing to have my season end like this. This title was mine and I was finally back to the old j mart.”
While it’s a tough injury we are glad he is on the mend and its going well. In the vid on the post you can see how the injury happened and how bad it could have been. Stay tuned for more updates and return progresses.
