Rider Jeremy Martin has signed a twoyear deal to join the GEICO/AMSOIL/ Honda team for the 2017 and 2018 Monster Energy Supercross and AMA Motocross seasons. The deal keeps Martin in the 250 class for 2017, but will move him to a Honda CRF450R fulltime in 2018.

“I’m very excited to finally announce I’ve signed a two-year deal with the GEICO/AMSOIL/Honda team,” said Martin in a press release. “They’re a proven, championship-winning team and I’m excited to reach a new level on the 250 next year and continue the relationship through the 2018 season as a rookie 450 rider.”

“Everyone at GEICO/AMSOIL/Honda is happy to have Jeremy Martin coming to our team,” said Team Manager Mike LaRocco. “He has that burning desire to be great and I look forward to working with him. He’s a great addition to our team.”

Martin, of Millville, Minn., won the 2014 and 2015 AMA 250 National Motocross Championships and has won 11 career AMA National Motocross races and four career AMA 250 Supercross events, along with collecting 12 supercross podium finishes.

Martin made his racing debut with GEICO/AMSOIL/Honda at the Glen Helen MXGP of the USA in San Bernardino, Calif., finishing second in each moto to earn second overall in the MX2 (250) class.
