Two national cyclists Talal Khan and Hira Maqsood on Monday departed for Bahrain to attend road training camp being organised in Manama.
Pakistan Cycling Federation (PCF) Secretary Moazzam Khan saw them off at the airport and expressed good wishes for them. He said that the useful activity is being organised by Bahrain Cycling Association (BCA) in collaboration with International Cycling Federation (ICF) to impart latest training to the participants. “It is a very beneficial activity which will help our cyclists to learn the finer points of the game and to enhance their techniques under the watchful eyes of world’s best trainers and coaches,” he added.
He said the national cycling federation is taking all-out measures for the further uplift of the game and sending national riders to Bahrain is part of its game development programme. “We will continue our efforts for the overall uplift of the game by arranging training and coaching camps home and abroad and by that way we will be able to have a pool of talented players, both male and female, to form our national teams to represent the country in elite international cycling events abroad.”
Moazzam said he, along with PCF President Azhar Shah, will unveil an ambitious activity plan under which national senior and junior events for men and women will be organised in different parts of the country. “Our prime objective is to engage our riders in a competitive activity plan throughout the year to identity new talent and to expose them to highest level of competition helping them to gain excellence in cycling to fetch glory for the country abroad,” he asserted
