September 22, 2021

Asma Jan and Kanza Malik made history at the world championships. The two riders became the first women from Pakistan to compete at an international cycling event when they took on the women’s individual time trial Monday.

They are part of a four-rider team, along with two men, that is competing in Belgium this week. With no UCI points, the nation did not qualify for a spot in the event but was invited to take part by the governing body. VeloNews
