The moves we put forward with the strong vision of our President bear fruit in the international arena. Cycling is also an exciting sport in this sense. Our country is very suitable for this sport due to its infrastructure, geographical features and climate. We completed Turkey’s first Olympic velodrome. It was an excellent facility to compete with the most important centers in the world. We will open it in the coming days. There are countries such as Spain where cycling preparation camps are concentrated. I now invite the athletes to camp in Turkey. All of our infrastructure has been completed. I followed the Manisa stage. The interest of sports fans and young people in sports made me very happy. As in every branch, we have made important strides in achieving greater success in cycling. I believe that in the upcoming period, we will both raise the bar for the widespread use of bicycles and increase our medals in bicycles.”
