The Bicycle Sports Association of Thailand organised a track competition, the Thailand Championship, for the "Queen Sirikit" Royal Cup for 2020, from July 10-12 at the velodrome in Bangkok's Hua Mark district.
Thai national cyclists from various clubs competed according to the new normal competition format in individual events, without spectators in the stadium, to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
The highlight of Sunday's competition was the final of the women's 500 metres race. National cyclist Juthathip “Beaz” Maneepan, who is eligible to compete in the Tokyo Olympic Games, breezed through for the top honours in a time of 38.995 seconds.
