Kejayaan kuartet berbasikal cetus harapan baru buat Malaysia
KEJAYAAN demi kejayaan mengiringi skuad berbasikal trek negara dalam tempoh dua bulan lalu dan ia sekadar mencetus detik gembira buat jaguh muda negara, Azizulhasni Awang yang berharap mereka mampu meraih kejayaan lebih cemerlang selepas ini.
Dimulakan dengan kecemerlangan dilakar pelumba berasal dari Terengganu itu pada Piala Dunia Melbourne apabila meraih pingat emas keirin, November lalu, ia diteruskan dengan Mohd Edrus Yunus muncul juara acara keirin di Kejohanan Antarabangsa New Zealand Krismas Karnival, minggu lalu.
Kemudian, Josiah Ng menghasilkan kejutan apabila memenangi Piala Melbourne Wheels-Revolution 4 di Melbourne diikuti Mohd Rizal Tisin memperbaharui rekod Asia dalam acara satu kilometer ujian masa di Victorian Championships, kelmarin.
“Semua menunjukkan prestasi memberangsangkan. Edrus, Rizal, Junaidi (Mohamad Nasir) Josiah dan Fatehah (Mustafa) semua menunjukkan aksi membanggakan di setiap kejohanan,” kata Azizulhasni menerusi khidmat pesanan ringkas (SMS).
Katanya, kejayaan itu adalah petanda baik dan dia mengharapkan akan ada skuad pelapis yang mantap di tanah air bagi memberi sokongan kepada skuad utama sedia ada ketika ini.
“Saya harap bilangan atlit berbasikal juga akan bertambah dari semasa ke semasa,” katanya.
Ketika ini dia hanya mengekalkan persembahan pada setiap kejohanan disertai dengan sasaran menyertai Piala Dunia di Beijing, China dari 16 sehingga 18 Januari ini.
Katanya selepas ini, dia dan rakan-rakan serta jurulatih John Beasley akan ke perlumbaan di Devonport Carnival, Tasmania dan dia berharap skuad negara akan mampu menyinar sekali lagi.

The class of the visiting Malaysians was on display on the opening night of the International Christmas Carnival at the ILT Velodrome last night.
The Malaysian sprinters, who all represented their country at the Beijing Olympics in August, were dominant in the invitation keirin.
Mohd Younos won the first heat, with compatriot Josiah Ng giving him an expert lead out, while Melbourne World Cup winner Azizul Awang comfortably won the second.
The final included New Zealand representatives Simon van Velthooven, Ethan Mitchell and Sam Webster.
In an exciting race Malaysia looked to have shut the New Zealand riders out with Younos taking the lead before van Velthooven manoeuvred his way through for second place with Webster third.
Invercargill junior Matt Vermunt finished third in the secondary final, behind winner Jason Allen and Adam Stewart.
Olympic double medallist Hayden Roulston did not ride last night but could be in action tonight.
Olympian Marc Ryan won the division one elimination race from his New Zealand pursuit team mate Sam Bewley with world omnium champion Hayden Godfrey, who will take on a horse and a runner in an exhibition race at the Ascot Park Racecourse today, third.The carnival continues tonight at 7pm

IT isn't about getting there, but about staying at the top when you get there.
"Now, it is about maintaining that position and trying to get hold of the World Cup leader's jersey, which is something difficult, given our programme, but achievable. That is my target," said Azizul, when contacted in Melbourne yesterday.
Azizul sits atop the ranking with 570 points, 50 more than Francois Pervis of France, while triple Olympic gold medallist Chris Hoy of Britain is third, yet to start his new season. Pervis is the current UCI World Cup keirin leader's jersey holder.
The pint-sized Azizul is also the first Malaysian since Josiah Ng in 2005 to attain World No 1 status in the keirin.
The national track sprints squad under Australian coach John Beasley will sit out the third round of the World Cup in Cali, Colombia this weekend, continuing their season with the fourth round in Beijing on Jan 16-18.
"Since we're missing the Cali round, my eyes are now fully on Beijing. Being World No 1 inspires me and I want to take that World Cup leader's jersey from Pervis," said Azizul.
"I think now, we can tell all Malaysians that they can start believing that we can achieve something, we can be right at the top. But this is not the climax yet. Our main goal is the World Championships."
The squad go to the New Zealand GP tomorrow and return to Melbourne for leg four of the Revolution series, before a final tune-up in Tasmania prior to heading to Beijing next month.

Dalam aksi acara keirin yang mendebarkan itu, Azizulhasni menewaskan pelumba Ukraine, Andriy Vynokurov di tempat kedua dan pelumba Perancis yang mewakili kelab Cofidis, François Pervis, ketiga.
Turut menjadi mangsa kayuhan bertenaga pelumba cilik kelahiran Terengganu itu ialah pemenang pingat gangsa Sukan Olimpik Beijing dari Jepun, Kazunari Watanabe yang sekadar mampu menduduki tempat kelima daripada enam pelumba yang beraksi dalam acara akhir.
Kejayaan Azizulhasni itu sekali gus menebus kekecewaan dan
Malah dalam perjalanannya ke perlumbaan akhir keirin, Azizulhasni mengungguli kesemua acara saringan iaitu pertama dan kedua.
Mengulas mengenai kejayaan itu, Presiden Persekutuan Kebangsaan Berbasikal Malaysia (PKBM), Abu Samah Wahab berkata, ia satu pencapaian yang tentunya membanggakan.
"Josiah Ng juga pernah menang keirin pada Piala Dunia sebelum ini tetapi dia tidak menang emas sebaliknya hanya meraih mata sahaja.
"Kali ini pingat emas diberikan. Jadi ini kali pertama Malaysia bawa pulang emas malah kali pertama juga lagu Negaraku berkumandang pada trek Piala Dunia ini," katanya.
Menurut Abu Samah, Josiah bagaimanapun tidak beraksi dalam acara keirin semalam kerana satu negara hanya dibenarkan diwakili satu pelumba sahaja.
Sementara itu, dalam acara kejar mengejar berpasukan lelaki, kuartet negara hanya mampu menduduki tempat ketujuh dan tercorot.
Gandingan Akmal Amrun, Mohd Fadhli Fauzi, Jasmin Ruslan dan Thum Weng Kin mencatat masa 4 minit 28.344 saat.
Catatan itu jelas masih jauh daripada standard kelas dunia walaupun kayuhan mereka makin pantas berbanding rekod kebangsaan.
Acara itu semalam dimenangi Australia (4:03.483s) diikuti Sepanyol (4:07.945s) dan Ukraine (4:10.041s).
Hari terakhir saingan hari ini bakal menyaksikan Azizulhasni berpeluang menambah pingat emas untuk negara apabila beraksi dalam acara 200 meter pecut bersama Josiah.
Kelmarin, pelumba tunggal wanita negara, Fatehah Mustapha tewas seawal pusingan pertama lagi dalam acara 200m pecut wanita.
Meskipun dicabar lima pelumba terbaik dunia, Azizulhasni tidak berdepan masalah untuk terlebih dahulu tiba ke garisan penamat, sekali gus membolehkannya membawa pulang pingat emas.
Pada perlumbaan akhir sebanyak lapan pusingan semalam, pelumba muda kelahiran Terengganu ini mengetepikan cabaran pelumba Ukraine, Andriy Vynokurov, Francois Pervis (Perancis), Shane Perkins (Australia), Kazunari Watanabe (Jepun) dan Christos Volikakis (Greece).
Kemenangan Azizulhasni ini sedikit sebanyak telah mengubat kekecewaan pasukan negara yang mencatat keputusan hambar pada hari pertama kelmarin.
Mengulas kejayaan Azizulhasni, Presiden Persekutuan Kebangsaan Berbasikal Malaysia (PKBM), Abu Samah Wahab berkata, kemenangan tersebut dianggap cukup unik.
"Azizulhasni telah membuktikan bahawa semangatnya tidak pernah luntur meskipun gagal memenangi sebarang pingat pada temasya Sukan Olimpik 2008 di Beijing, China Ogos lalu.
"Selain itu, ia juga dilakukan ketika pelumba negara baru sahaja meneruskan program latihan selepas berehat panjang pada musim cuti perayaan lalu.
"Ini adalah satu perkembangan yang positif tidak hanya kepada Azizulhasni tetapi kepada semua pelumba basikal negara," kata Abu Samah kepada Kosmo! semalam.
Pada saingan semalam, Azizulhasni telah dihimpit Watanabe dan Pervis pada jarak 50 meter terakhir.
Mujur dia masih berjaya meloloskan diri kira-kira 30 meter menuju ke garisan penamat.
Bagaimanapun kecemerlangan Azizulhasni gagal diteruskan oleh seorang lagi pelumba muda negara, Akmal Amrun apabila dia sekadar menamatkan perlumbaan di tempat ke-17 selepas ketinggalan dua pusingan dalam acara akhir scratch.
Hari ini, Josiah Ng dan Azizulhasni sekali lagi menjadi sandaran untuk memenangi pingat emas apabila tampil dalam acara pecut individu.
Manakala pelumba wanita tunggal negara, Fatehah Mustapa yang menamatkan perlumbaan di tempat ke-13 dalam acara pecut individu semalam akan berlumba dalam acara keirin dan 500 meter hari ini.
Kelmarin, Amir Mustafa Rusli berjaya mencatat rekod baru kebangsaan dalam acara 4 kilometer kejar mengejar individu, namun dia sekadar menduduki tempat ke-10 daripada 12 pelumba.
Amir yang turut bertanding dalam acara 30km perlumbaan mata gagal meraih sebarang mata dalam saingan akhir yang dimenangi jaguh Australia, Glenn O'Shea.
Manakala gandingan Azizulhasni, Muhamad Edrus Yunos dan Josiah Ng pula sekadar ditempat ketujuh daripada 10 pasukan dalam acara pecut berpasukan.
Pada sirkit pertama di Manchester, England Oktober lalu, pasukan negara tidak mengambil bahagian.
Incredibly, it was the first time the 20-year-old was riding in the keirin event at the World Cup stage. That, however, did not stop Azizul from beating the likes of Andriy Vynokourov of Ukraine and Pervis Francois of France into second and third placings respectively.
“This win is for Malaysia as much as I wanted it for myself. I was looking for a medal finish in the Olympics but my lack of experience was my undoing in the final. But this tops it all, my first attempt in the keirin at the World Cup and I won it. I’m so happy,” said Azizul in a telephone interview from Melbourne.
The field for the top-six final also comprised former world junior champions Shane Perkins of Australia and Greek Christos Volikakis, who was later relegated to last spot for not holding his line during the final sprint.
Azizul, dubbed the Malaysian Pocket Rocket, had been unstoppable en route to qualifying for his first World Cup final. He won the first round and secured his place in the main final after coming out tops in the second round.
Azizul’s triumph is certainly a breakthrough performance as far as Malaysian track cycling is concerned as not even Josiah Ng ever made it to the top of the rostrum at the peak of his career.
Josiah came close to winning on a few occasions en route to a total of eight World Cup medals and Azizul can certainly hold his head high as he dashed Australia’s hopes of seeing their local riders win the most sought after title.
Although Azizul was rated an outsider, he had already sounded his intentions with a two-gold feat in the Asian Championships in Japan in April.
He went on to make his Olympic debut in Beijing in August and was the only Asian rider to qualify for the quarter-finals of the 200m sprint after finishing ninth in the keirin.
Only one rider from each country can enter for keirin and Malaysian track coach John Beasley said Azizul’s performance was beyond expectations.
“He just rode beautifully today. It (the win) was unexpected as we had just got started on our training regime not too long ago,” said the Australian.
Azizul has a chance to give the country more glory when he competes in the 200m sprint with Josiah today.
Malaysia did not compete in the opening round of the five-leg World Cup in Manchester last month because the track squad had just resumed training after a lengthy break following the Olympics.

There were two riders the crowd kept a keen eye on in the men's keirin - François Pervis and Shane Perkins. As the pair made their respective ways to the final with commanding rides, they proved why they were the centre of attention.
While spectators eagerly anticipated the match up between Australian and Frenchman, it was a 66kg flier that caught the pair napping and stole the win. Azizulhasni Awang made his move with half a lap remaining, punching through the gap between Perkins and Pervis on the inside, and Greece's Christos Volikakis on the far side.
"I wanted to prove that size doesn't matter," said Awang. He then praised the efforts of his Australian coach, John Beasley, and credited him with helping develop the tactical nous necessary to make a move such as his race-winning one.
"When I've trained with John, he does very good training and has helped me improve with my racing," he said. "The two guys cut in front of me and I was stuck, so I couldn't wait any more and made a move."
Beasley himself knew Awang's size wasn't really an issue. "I know how fast he is, but I think he surprised a few of the others, although they should know who he is by now because he's been on the world scene for 12 months and he's been getting better and better," he said. "He likes to train hard."
The Victorian, who has helped the Malaysian team immensely, added: "We've pretty much got everything that we want and need - we've just done the budget for the next four years and we've got a lot of work in front of us. We've got great support from Malaysia and they're backing us 100 per cent - I've just got to come up with the goods."

Malaysia has a Formula One Grand Prix and a Moto GP but when it comes to generating their own speed, pedal power rather than horsepower predominates.
The south-east Asian nation’s sprint cyclists have rocketed into the world’s elite, as Australia’s Olympians learned when beaten for the first time by Malaysia at a pre-Beijing meet in Melbourne.
The local cycling community got another reminder of Malaysia’s pace prowess in last night’s Perth GP at Midvale when Mohd Azizulhasni Awang beat the Australian Cyclones’ Scott Sunderland in the sprint final.
For decades, Australia’s best riders have had to go to Europe for world-class competition on the track. Now the sprinters need go no further north than Kuala Lumpur, where former Australian junior coach John Beasley is building a potent squad.
When Kuala Lumpur hosted the 1998 Commonwealth Games, the recognised cycling nations paid little attention to the slow coaches of Malaysia, who went around mainly to show the flag. A decade later, attitudes have changed significantly.
Spearheading Malaysia’s cycling revolution is Josiah Ng, who raised eyebrows when he finished fifth in the keirin in the Athens Olympic final. He subsequently made the podium at several World Cup rounds, encouraging his nation’s sports authorities to contemplate the likelihood of more kids with raw speed who could be developed into world-class competitors.
“The Government put money into a talent scouting and development program and the results have followed,” said Ng. “We’re not at the level of the best yet but the gap is closing quickly.
“We went to Beijing with the goal of making the top eight in the team sprint and we finished seventh and lowered our best by nearly a second. If we keep working to eliminate our mistakes and improve consistency, we have the ability to be top three.
“Until a few years ago I was the only Malaysian rider doing well on the international circuit. Now we’ve got some depth. In a few years’ time I’m going to battle to keep my spot in the team.”
Ng and Beasley formed a partnership in 2006 when the coach was recommended to the rider by the husband of triathlete Michelle Jones.
“He really got the program moving and the squad divides its time between Kuala Lumpur and Melbourne,” said Ng. “We’re really starting to push each other in training.”
Edrus Yunos is the third of the Malaysian sprint team and teenager Fatehah Mustapa is the best of the women prospects. She finished fourth in the Perth GP.
When it comes to the endurance events, Australia is still towards the front of the world bunch. The results at Beijing were poor but Generation Next is ready to take over, with two of the best and brightest winning State scratch race titles last night to confirm their readiness for the opening round of the World Cup, in Melbourne in 10 days’ time.
Junior world champion Josie Tomic judged her move to perfection to claim the honours in the 30-lap women’s race and Cameron Meyer controlled the 40-lap men’s race, burning off the sprinters with a sustained 500m surge for the stripe.
