PETALING JAYA: Mohd Adiq Hussainie Othman is unlikely to defend his title when the national cycling (road race) championships are held in Raub, Pahang, this weekend.
The 20-year-old will only be back in Malaysia today after participating in a series of races in Europe with Australian team Drapac Professional for the last two months.
The other Malaysian rider in the Drapac team for the Europe stint was Amir Mustafa Rusli, who was involved in a nasty crash in Belgium and is also doubtful for the national meet.
Terengganu lad Adiq said it would be too much for him to defend the title as the races in Europe were quite taxing.
