Hailed from Dungun, Terengganu – the home of Malaysia cycling, it is undoubted that the true potential lies withint Eddyna after being selected for a three-week BMX training stint at the World Cycling Center in Switzerland in June.
The Xiangrui Cup was sanctioned by the International Cycling Union (UCI) and offers world ranking points. The future BMX star also won a gold medal in the Banyuwangi International BMX Championship in Indonesia last year.
