Two locals will compete in BMX world championship
June 10, 2017
Collin Blatchley (a second-grader next year) and Reid Porter (going into third-grade) will be representing Team USA and Niwot in this year’s world BMX competition next month.
The boys earned their tickets earlier this year in Austin, Texas and Rock Hill, S.C., respectively, and will be making the trip to see how they fare with bikers from around the world against the best of the best.
“They’ll be competing against kids their age from all around the world,” Collin’s father Rob Blatchley said. “This is the first time worlds have been in the U.S. for a long time.”
