Honda will be a depleted team at the Salt Lake City Supercross this weekend as Cole Seely and Jeremy Martin are both out with injuries. Seely will miss the round as he’s still not fit from a groin injury at the Seattle Supercross two weeks ago. Martin will miss the rest of the Supercross season with a herniated disc in his back. He aims to be back for the outdoor Nationals.
Martin said: “Due to on going discomfort and pain from a herniated disc in my back. My team and I have decided it’s best for me to sit out SLC and Vegas and be 100% for the outdoors. I am a racer and want to race no matter what but sometimes the best decision isn’t easy and goes against the racer inside me.
“I really want this third title and will be ready for major battles this summer. I’m very disappointed with missing three sx rounds already and how my sx season has gone this year so all the more reason to put everything into the outdoors since I’m out of the sx championship.”
Seely said: “I’ve always been one to take the recommended time off for an injury, 1 so my body is in working order after motocross, 2 to set a good example. Unfortunately I’m not racing this weekend but I will be in SLC with my team!”
