The Hong Kong Cycling Criterium Race, sponsored by the Hong
Kong Cycling Association, held its Race Series One on 15 October
2000 at Victoria Park.
Over 100 riders from the Hong Kong Sports Institute and the
open division competed for the championship amid the cheers
of the spectators.
Before the races started, riders looked relaxed, as they friendly
chatted with each other. Their eyes shone with confidence.
The marshal counted, “Three, two, one, go!?All of them immediately
started their engines. With twisted faces and contracted muscles,
they sped for the goal.
Victory is glorious!
The skill in turning is a key to winning.
