Bahraini cyclist Ahmed Madan was yesterday crowned champion in the under-23 category of the Individual Time Trial at the 41st Senior and 28th Junior and 10th Asian Road and 10th Para Cycling Championships, currently being held in Tajikistan. Madan completed the 24-kilometre single lap around Dushanbe in 29 minutes 25 seconds to secure the title, which he added to his national time trial crown.
Following the event, Madan, who was competing on the Merida Time Warp TT bike, was delighted with his achievement. He said: “I’m very happy to be here. We’ve had an excellent training block at camps, and it’s paying off with the results.
I felt good in the race, and now I’m looking ahead to the road race on Monday and another good result. Big thank you to the team for the support. “It’s the second time I’ve raced on the new Merida Time Warp, and It’s my second win, so I’m really enjoying the new bike.” Madan will be back in the saddle tomorrow for the under-23 road race.
