At Spring Creek Motocross Park in Millville, MN, the eighth round of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series, we tracked Troy Lee Designs/KTM Alex Martin’s day at his home track. Alex grew up at the Millville track as his parents have owned the track for many years. Alex Martin goes from weed whacking as a kid to the 2nd overall 250 podium at the 8th round of the series.
Alex said the 1st practice was an absolute mudder with some sections being very wet and spongy while other sections were ok. Alex over the Chadapulte in his 1st lap of the session and the mud was already covered on his bike.
The heat and humidity was high after the Friday rain storm and made it a difficult day for everyone. At the end of the 2nd Moto the riders needed to cool off and get their core temperatures back down after the 35 minute Moto. Alex said that the track took a lot out of you and the 2nd Moto it was more technical then usual with all the ruts.
Alex was going to spend the rest of the day after the race to catch up with family and friends before he would head back to the Bakers Factory in Florida and prepare for Washougal next week. Alex summed up the day that he was able to make up points on Zach Osborne and beat his brother in their sand box.
