Jorge Martin has hung the leathers for a little while during the first few weeks of the off-season. The young Spaniard enjoyed a well-deserved holiday at Punta Cana together with multiple World Champion Jorge Lorenzo, but also spent some time in his native city of Madrid and in Andorra, where he followed an intensive training programme made of cycling – again in good company of some MotoGP stars – workout at the gym and cross-country skiing in the wonderful valleys near Andorra.
“I must admit these holidays were like manner from the sky: given the injury, this summer I was unable to basically do anything so I needed to switch off a little, even for just a week” said Jorge. “I put on 7kg (laughs) but I already lost half of them due to training.
I’m not pushing too much because we don’t want to geta head of ourselves, but we are definitely preparing 2018 the best way with cycling, skiing and gym: we are working especially on our stamina, in order to get a good base for January and then increase our workload. We will have to wait for February to get back on the bike, but we’ll be ready!”
