PETALING JAYA: Josiah Ng’s jinx with the Track World Championships continues and the Malaysian National Cycling Federation (MNCF) will be on a wing and prayer that their most experienced cyclist in the national elite team will be back at his best for next year’s Commonwealth and Asian Games.

Josiah has been ruled out of the world meet in Cali, Colombian, in February as he has yet to recover from injuries. He suffered a horrible crash in his second round keirin heat in the second leg of the Track World Cup in Aguascalientes, Mexico, earlier this month. The crash knocked him unconscious and he had to be hospitalised in Mexico for a week before being flown back to the national elite team’s training base in Melbourne.
