"Martin suffered a burst fracture of his L1 vertebrae and is being attended to at Bristol hospital near the track. He will undergo back surgery on Monday, June 25th. Recovery time is expected to be around two months and Martin should be able to begin therapy almost immediately after surgery."

 Fans across the globe were concerned when Jeremy Martin, who won the first moto at Muddy Creek earlier today, crashed out of the second encounter and did not get up for a prolonged period of time. Martin was eventually taken away on a stretcher and, although no official update has been released, Steve Matthes shared a bit of information on social media.

Matthes, our American correspondent here at MX Vice, posted a screenshot of a message from an unnamed source that simply said, "Fully responsive. Full movement. On the way to the hospital now in ambulance." No more information is available at this time, but that alone is a huge relief.

Footage of the crash has now been released by those at Lucas Oil Pro Motocross and can be viewed in the video below.
