KUALA TERENGGANU: Three Terengganu riders have been selected to represent the country at the Asian Cycling Championships (ACC) in Kazakhstan early next month.
Terengganu cycling head coach Syed Mohd Hussaini Syed Mazlan said the three riders are Sopian Nabil Omar Bakri, Hafiq Huzni Othman and Mohd Naimin Ying.
“Sopian will be competing in the Under-23 category while Hafiq and Naimin are in the Under-18 group,” he told Bernama when contacted here on Wednesday.
According to Hussaini, the meet is an excellent opportunity for the cyclists to gain exposure and prepare for the Malaysia Games (Sukma) in Perlis next month.
He informed that 16 Terengganu cyclists, including five women, would be undergoing intensive training for a month in Chiang Mai, Thailand, beginning April 12.
He said the training stint was a programme by the Terengganu State Sports Council to strengthen the state cycling squad for Sukma.
“We will be cycling about 1,500km during that period and that will be our final preparation before the Games,” he said.
Syed Mohd Hussaini said at the same time, five riders, including a woman mountain bike cyclist, would be training in Bandung, Indonesia, for a month from April 16, as preparation for Sukma as well.
He said the Terengganu cycling squad to Sukma would comprise 23 riders, including eight women. – Bernama
