Victoria BMX rider wins world title in Azerbaijan


WATCH: Victoria’s Cid Martinez captured bragging rights as World Champion in the men’s 35-39 cruiser class at the 2018 Worlds BMX Championship in Baku, Azerbaijan.

Martinez, who is representing his home country of Bolivia at the tournament, resides in the Capital Region and trains at Victoria BMX. The Bolivian trailed in the final race until the leader from the Netherlands took a nasty fall, allowing Martinez to cruise into first place and capture the world title. There are three Victoria riders at the event, including Nico Martinez and Brayden Friesen, who will have their own chances to compete as the event rolls through the rest of the week.
