JGRMX Suzuki Racing‰Ûªs Alex Martin continued his streak of top-five finishes on his RM-Z250 at round three of the 2020 Monster Energy Supercross Championship in Anaheim, California that ties him for fourth in the championship points standings.
Martin was determined to get the JGR Suzuki team on the podium at A2 after just missing a top-three position by a few tenths of a second at A1. After running in third place in his heat race, a block pass sent him into the second set of whoops slightly off-speed resulting in a crash. Martin got right up but elected to leave the heat to regroup and prepare for the Last Chance Qualifier.
Martin pulled a huge holeshot from one of the outside gates and had a smooth ride into a Main Event transfer position. In the main, Martin rounded the first lap in eighth and steadily moved up the leader board. On the final lap, a tumble ended his shot at the podium, but he was able to finish strong with his third top-five finish of the year.
