You may have heard that Leatt Protectives Cole Martinez became the “King of Stuttgart” over the weekend at the ADAC Supercross in Stuttgart Germany, but what you may not have heard was what he went through this year in order to get there.
Cole being the rad dude that he is, we worked together on documenting his “Recovery Process” the best we could from his injury sustained back in March. In Part 3 of the series we put together a video that covers a lot of his hard work since his crash at the Daytona Supercross and also catch up with him on whats new about his program the day before flying overseas.
Stoked for this guy! Proof of what happens when you put your mind to something! – JB
Injuries aren’t fun but they’re apart of not just racing Moto, but life. And as the cliche quote goes “what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger”. Stoked for our Leatt/WJE Family member Cole Martinez who’s finally back on the bike after a severe leg injury. Check out this piece we recently made of that special first day back on the bike 👊🏼“You don’t realize how much you miss it.”During the last episode of The Recovery Process, our own Cole Martinez gave us all the details on his severe leg injury and how he had just made the tough decision to keep living the dream, racing his dirt bike. Part 2 covers the big day that all riders dream of while recovering from injury. The first day back on the bike. Get inside Cole’s head and life in this episode of The Recovery Process.🎥 @jarredbrowne#LeattFamily #ScienceOfThrill #Motocross
UnaF*ckinDilla. One of the most beautiful, treacherous, and flat out picture perfect examples of what Professional Motocross is all about. So in honor of the 49th annual running of the Unadilla Pro Motocross National this weekend, I’ve decided to share some of my experiences from the historical race track.
My first time at Unadilla was while I was still competing back in 2009. Which was my second year racing outdoors professionally. I had 9-9 Moto finishes for 11th overall (that hurt) which was my best overall finish at a professional outdoor national. 📸: @guyb
My second trip to Unadilla came in 2011, again while being a competitor. I had a pretty big crash at the Dallas Supercross earlier in the year and was trying to make a strong comeback from a dislocated wrist, shattered knee cap, and broken collarbone. I raced the first Moto and after barely being able to hang on at the end of the race, I decided not to line up for Moto 2. It didn’t go as smooth as my 09 trip but at least there’s this cool shot from practice!
My next trip to the Thrilla came in 2014, this time working for @gopro mounting the cameras and pushing all their athletes buttons. I hung up my racing boots in 2013 due to another big get off in Supercross and was stoked to be back at the races after spending some time away from it.
I was back at it again in 2015 and 2016 doing more with/for @gopro and I also starting working with @LeattProtectives creating content and making sure their athletes were taken care of at the races.
That’s it! Looking forward to my next trip! Maybe next year?-JB425
We have some good dudes that are a part of the Leatt Protectives Family. Check out this video I put together that just dropped of our boy Cole Martinez. We hang out at his house, play video games, and a few months later link up at the beach to talk about his progress since his leg injury from his crash at the Daytona Supercross.
We’ve been lucky enough to shred these hills from the time we were on mini bikes. In a way this little town “made” us. Shot in late 2014.

Song: Machine Gun Kelly – Just what I am remiXX
Lyrics we felt: “So, what am I to do when the game is so fake and I am true And my city just got the W And the number one spot is vacant too And I think my foot might fit the shoe”
Stoked I’ll be attending about half of the 2018 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series to create content for Leatt Protectives + make sure their athletes are well taken care of. So in the spirit of the great outdoors and Hangtown, here’s a pretty rad throwback featuring myself Via Motocross Action Magazines “Mid week report”: “Jarred Jet Browne epitomizes the struggle that so many privateers endure to climb the ladder of motocross success. A former top amateur rider, Jarred is on the comeback from a succession of injuires and he proved his talents at Glen Helen with an impressive 16th overall. In the first moto at round one, Jarred came from last place to 17th before running out of gas.He pushed his bike across the line to ultimately finish 26th. Between motos his mechanic Drew Collins (r) heated up his gas tank and beat some additional capacity into it with a 22mm wrench. Jarred rode well to finish 13th in moto two. For Hangtown, the normally seven hour drive turned into a two day ordeal when his truck broke down twice and had to be towed to a dealer each time. Jarred qualified 15th fastest, but his first moto ended early when he sucked a banner into his rear wheel. His 36/19 score gave him 22nd overall. Like many privateers at Hangtown, Jarred’s next big decision was whether or not to make the drive to round three in Texas for another shot at a good result. Through thick & thin, Jarred’s dad (l) is there to support him as much as possible. Motocross is truely a test of character and dedication.”
Things got a bit more interesting for the Premiere Class in the 2018 Monster Energy Supercross Series last weekend in Salt Lake City. Take a look into Leatt Athlete Marvin Musquin’s day as he captures the win and moves within 14 points of the series leader heading into the final today, in Las Vegas.
Last weekends racing in SLC was intense to say the least! And as usual the GoPro’s brought the most exciting perspective. Check out all the 250 Class action below.
Stoked to have Lorenzo back at the races after getting injured a few weeks back in Tampa. Get “In The Moment” with him at the Minneapolis Supercross and see where his focus is moving forward. Thanks for letting me pick your brain Lorenzo!
