Reigning BMX Freestyle world champion Logan Martin will makes his comeback to racing this weekend at the second round of the FISE World Cup series in France.
Brisbane’s Martin missed the opening round in China following a training crash in March that broke his collar bone in four places and resulted in nine screws and a plate inserted into his shoulder.
“It was very unfortunate, but it was normal day of riding and part of the sport,” said Martin who was back on his bike just two weeks after surgery.
“It goes with my lifestyle, I live quite healthy, so that helped me get back on my bike a lot quicker.
“The crash came at a bad time, I missed a few events, including the first stop of the World Series, but I took it as it is, it is just an unforunate part of the sport.
“I am back to 100%, everything feels good, I feel good on my bike and I am ready to race.
“I don’t doubt I can do well all year I feel as good as I have ever felt.”
It is also Martin’s first international race sinc being crowned the inaugural BMX Freestyle world champion at the 2017 UCI Urban World Championships
“To win the first ever rainbow jersey in freestyle was crazy and I still can’t believe it,” added Martin, who completed his final training camp in Mebourne in his rainbow jersey.
Martin is eyeing Olympic glory following the IOC's decision to add BMX Freestyle to the programme for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
