Bantuan rakan sepasukan menjadi faktor utama raja pecut Terengganu Cycling Team (TSG), Harrif Salleh, dinobatkan sebagai juara perlumbaan Cabaran Kriterium TSS di Kuala Terengganu kelmarin.
Harrif dicabar hebat oleh barisan pelumba Team Sapura Cycling (TSC) yang sudah mengetahui kemampuannya untuk melakukan henjutan.
Bagaimanapun, taktikal yang dilakukan TSG ternyata berhasil, di mana dua pelumba mereka bertindak sebagai 'lead up' yang membantu Harrif melintasi garisan penamat selaku juara.
Lebih manis, kesemua kedudukan podium perlumbaan itu dikuasai pelumba TSG dengan Wan Abdul Rahman Hamdan muncul naib juara manakala Irwandie Lakasek pula menamatkan perlumbaan di tempat ketiga.
"Pasukan kami lebih banyak mengawal perlumbaan," katanya kepada wartawan Nadi Arena, Bazly Azmi.
"Ada juga pecahan daripada pasukan lain seperti pasukan Sapura, pasukan Sukma dan satu pasukan daripada Kelantan.
"Tetapi Alhamdulillah, sebaik sampai ke zon pecutan, lead up daripada pasukan kami dalam melakukan pecutan terakhir meletakkan saya di tempat pertama.
"Sememangnya ia adalah rezeki pasukan kami dalam perlumbaan kali ini," katanya.
