Azizul bangga prestasi rakan


BERITA HARIAN 23 DISEMBER 2008
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.

Malaysians show class in keirin

TOO GOOD: Malaysian Olympic cyclist Mohd Yunos taking out the invitation keirin final last night. Obscured is second placegetter Simon van Velthooven, of Palmerston North, and third was Sam Webster, of Auckland.

By NATHAN BURDON - Southland | Saturday, 13 December 2008

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

2008 - 2009 UCI Track Ranking

Azizul just getting started

Azizul will be trying to pry the World Cup leader’s jersey away from France’s Francois Pervis


By : Arnaz M. Khairul

IT isn't about getting there, but about staying at the top when you get there.

And that is exactly what runs through the mind of new World No 1 keirin rider Azizul Hasni Awang after being confirmed at those heights in the latest world rankings released on Monday.

"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.
That comes thanks to the reigning Asian keirin champion's explosive gold medal feat in Round Two of the UCI World Cup in Melbourne on Nov 20-22, and a series of wins in UCI graded grand prix events in Australia.

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.
