Mongolian cyclist B.Tegshbayar won gold medal in the Scratch Race from the UCI Junior Track Cycling World Championships held in Switzerland’s Aigle on July 20.

For Mongolia this was the first participation at this event. The UCI reported that it was also a celebration for the UCI World Cycling Centre, because B.Tegshbayar has been training there since April.

After only just qualifying for the final in the afternoon, he unleashed everything in the evening, hitting out with eight laps to go and racing to gold, the UCI underlined.

After his victory, B.Tegshbayar commented, “I am so happy. I dreamed of the rainbow jersey and now I am wearing one. This is a new story for Mongolia. I have been at the UCI World Cycling Centre since April and the training is very good. It has helped me.”

Silver and bronze went to Daniel Babor from the Czech Republic and Moreno Marchetti from Italy.
