Sam Martin Breaks Through For Win At Herning Supercross

Posted:

Sam Martin has broken through for win in his third and final race for the Castrol Power 1 Suzuki team at the Herning Supercross held in Denmark on Saturday.

The Herning supercross was Martin's second race for the Castrol 1 Power team after returning to europe to contest a race in Liepzig, Germany after he also raced for the team at the Dormunt Supercross the week prior.

‰ÛÏAfter racing at Dortmond I was asked to come back and race in Liepzig, Germany and Herning Denmark just one week later." Martin explained. "I jumped at the offer but already having a ticket home I was only back for 3 days until I flew right back around the world.

"Liepzig started off well, qualifyng first and winning the semi final, but wile sitting in podium position in the final a small error ended in a big wreak, resulting in a hospital trip. The injuries I obtained were bleeding to the lungs, bad trauma to the back muscle and a concussion.

"After a disappointing result I checked myself out of hospital, and went back to the house where I was staying to recover.

"Unsure if I would be well enough to race the following weekend I stayed anyway." Martin continued. "I got to Herning with a very sore back but had some pain killers and did my best.

"The first qualifying i was 5 seconds off the pace and scared to jump the jumps, unsure if my back would hold up. But i kept telling myself I've come all the way from Australia for this and that was enough motivation for me.

"I came out with a 2nd place start in the semi, and shortly after pressuring for the win. I ended up second giving me a good gate pick for the final.

"In the final I pulled a holeshot and just put my fastest laps down I could. After lap five I looked around and there was no one there. so I took it home with smooth riding.

"I couldn‰Ûªt believe I had won the race I was so happy because I was unsure if I was even going to race that morning, I even told the team manager I dont think its possible so he stayed home. So it was overwhelming for me when I crossed the finish in first.‰Û
