Best Malaysian Sprinter In LTdL Not In Team For New Delhi

Though Anuar, 26, kept his promise to finish LTdL with an impact and show he is back on form, Aminudin said the deadline for registration has passed, with no changes allowed.

Anuar managed five top 10 finishes in the 18th edition of LTdL and finished third overall in the points classification, the best performance by a Malaysian sprinter in the race.

"Even if I wanted to include Anuar on a special request, the decision would not be up to me.

"It is the MNCF (Malaysian National Cycling Federation) selection committee that decides," said Aminudin.

"Right now, I just want to get on with it. We leave for India on the 11th and I have to work with the riders we have."

Brothers Harrif and Zamri will be counted on should the road race on March 17 finish in a bunch sprint or for them to be part of a large breakaway group that sprint to the finish.

"The route is a flat one, so we need Harrif and Zamri to pay special attention. But the Asian Championships road races seldom finish in bunch sprints even on flat routes, so we need to see who can work at it in a breakaway," said Aminudin.

"Harrif and Zamri will just have to wait it out and if their chance comes in a bunch sprint, then we have an advantage."

Harrif, Zamri, Amir and Rauf are registered for the road race, while Fauzan is due to contest the individual time trial on March 13.

Malaysia has never won a gold medal in the men's or women's elite road event since the Asian Championships began in 1963.

Adiq Husainie Othman produced a silver medal in the men's under-23 road race, contested for the first time in Putrajaya last year, but many are expecting the elite men's squad to end a medal drought that began in 1971.

Noor Azian Alias won Malaysia's last medal in a road event, taking the silver in the road race in Bangkok in 2007, while the last men's medal came from Omar Saad, a bronze in the road race in Singapore in 1971.
