THE CHALLENGE OF RACING DURING RAMADHAN

For the Muslim riders in the Asia Road Racing Championship, Round 3 at the Chang International Circuit represents a special annual challenge – a race during the holy month of Ramadhan.

This is a time when Muslims worldwide observe a month of fasting, prayer, reflection and community. Despite the challenges of the dawn-to-dusk fast, many of the Muslim riders in the ARRC have continued their training and physical conditioning in preparation for the third leg of the season.

Among them, are the riders from the Yuzy Honda Racing Team who have intensified their training regime to emphasize on stamina and mental endurance.

“Ramadhan is not an excuse to slack off. We need to ensure that our riders are fit enough to take the heat in Buriram when the races flag off,” said team principal Shahrol Yuzy. The Yuzy Honda Racing Team is active in the Underbone 150cc and the Asia Production 250cc.
