Edvards Glazers wins in Youth Olympics

Thrill Factory Europe Rider Edvards Glazers participated in the 2018 Youth Olympic Games held in Buenos Aires.  Together with  Airisa Galiņa, he formed Team Latvia for the BMX mixed event.  The team was standing out with their matching country colored frames by Thrill and custom pants by Maikun.  The bikes were built up with the team supporting brands Tangent, Answer and Maxxis.

In practice both riders had the track dialed and were ready for race day.

Race Day started well with Edvards dominating his first moto winning it with a solid lead. Airisa was in the mix for a transfer spot when she crashed in turn 1 ending her Youth Olympics early with a broken arm. Disaster for Team Latvia as this was a mixed event counting results of male and female athletes together for the final ranking.

Edvards didn’t let his head down and easily qualified for the Main event in which he took the hole shot from the outside leading the pack from start to finish giving him the win in the Men’s BMX Event.

Sadly team Latvia just missed out on the podium ending in 4th place just a few points away from the bronze medal.

The Team is proud of our rider’s performance and looking forward to his 2019 season in Junior Men.

Thrill Factory Europe is supported by some of the major brands in BMX:
