“We signed with the Ghidinelli Racing team, because we consider it a good opportunity to have a good and competitive bike. We had some other offers ready to sign, but I was more attracted to Fantic for the changes as this brings new motivation. The goals for 2022 are clear, we will race in Italy – the Italian nationals and international Italian championship as well as the EMX250 series.  The goal is fight for the EMX250 title”, Martinez told

“The 2-stroke bike looks so fun, I can’t wait to see what we can get with the 2 stroke, it’s a really different bike and we need to change some things on my riding to keep improving on this bike. A big thanks to Ghidinelli and Fantic for this opportunity, I’m super excited to start racing with them”, concluded Martinez.
