Axar.az reports citing Sky News.
Thomas Brown, 27, suffered fatal injuries while riding at Hardwick Motocross track in Sedgefield, County Durham, on 30 April.
His funeral was held at St Mary's Church in Barnard Castle, where the cortege brought the town centre to a standstill.

A toy digger was also laid beside the coffin.
Durham Police said Mr Brown, who worked on his family's farm, was not taking part in a race at the time of the crash.
In a separate incident on the same day, a female rider was airlifted to hospital following a crash.
