He appealed the authorities concerned to build velodromes in other cities of the country as well so hat the cycling talent does not get wasted.

Speaking about different cycling tournaments to be held this year in the country, he said National Cycling Race will be held in Quetta and National Cycling Coaching Course in Lahore in August, National Cycling race will be held from Karachi to Hyderabad in September.
