"For the past three years, I am fond of cycling, and motorcycling. I learned about the race on the Internet, the race aroused an emotion (admiration) in me and I feel that there was a desire to ride this race and to believe in and test myself. I feel that my body demands it. Riding a bike gives me the ultimate pleasure and I can't yet explain why I started to ride, I just love it. My cycling experience is limited to my participation in the cycling races that we organize with the children of the Karabalta orphanage that I periodically visit with my friends".
