Arturo Tizon, former 250cc world champion, dies

Arturo Tizón, 36-year-old former World Cup rider, died this morning in Alcudia de Veo (Castellón) while practicing Mountain biking. He began to feel ill while pedaling with a group of friends, until finally fell collapsed for reasons that have not been communicated at the moment, but it could be a heart attack. His companions immediately notified the emergency medical services, that they tried to revive him without success for almost an hour.

Tizón was born in 1984 in Uxó Valley (Castellón) and had a extensive experience in sports motorcycling, besides being very fond of cycling. Was Spanish Supersport champion in 2005 and arrived at 250cc World Championship the following year, as a companion of a then very young Aleix Espargaró, with a twelfth place as the best result at the Jerez circuit. He then specialized in resistance tests, competing in national competitions and even in the category World Cup, highlighting being part of the team Folch Endurance who achieved victory four times in the 24 Hours of Montmeló.

Nowadays I was still competing in the veterans category, combining this activity with the Mountain bikingboth for fun and to keep fit for the races he was still participating in at the amateur level. Rest in peace.
