Arielle Martin-Verhaaren

Olympic BMX Cyclist

Arielle grew up surrounded by BMX, thanks to her father who raced and ran a bike shop. Leaving the training wheels behind at only 2 1/2 years old, she was already racing at the age of five. She can’t remember ever not being on a bike, so when it was announced that BMX would be an Olympic event, Arielle knew she wanted to be a contender. In 2012 she joined the Olympic BMX Team.
