Craig Etheridge won a plane ticket to a messenger race in Guatemala. Then, he won that race.

Etheridge, a first time competitor at the Cycle Messenger World Championships, was the first to complete a delivery course through the tiny Guatemalan town of Panajachel.

Etheridge along with the top 40 male and top 10 female riders competed on Sunday to deliver a set of five manifests consisting of approximately 10 deliveries each.

Etheridge’s finished the course in two hours and 45 minutes, according to Shawn “bega” Blumenfeld, the results coordinator for the event.
