Kakabay Ataev, representative of the team from the School of Higher Sportsmanship of Turkmenistan, became the gold medalist in the individual competition. He overcame all the stages in eight hours six minutes and two seconds.  

In the team races, the Ashgabat quartet was the fastest. The second place was won by cyclists from the team of the Dashoguz region, and the bronze was taken by the team of the capital's sports school No. 6.  

Last year, the head of the Russian Cycling Federation came up with the idea to hold the world championship in cycling at a meeting with the President of the Republic Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov Vyacheslav Yekimov.

He noted the special attitude of the Turkmen leader to cycling. Berdimuhamedov personally takes part in cycling holidays and  races, reminded Ekimov.
