Malaysian rider Wan Najmee Mohd was disqualified in the fourth stage four of the Tour d' Indonesia, last week.
He was disqualified because a Malaysian vehicle assisted by pulling him during the race, an act that is considered as cheating. Race officials, when contacted, confirmed the reason for the disqualification was pulling by a team vehicle.
Journalists covering the race also confirmed that the incident took place and they felt it was a serious matter that needed to be dealt with sternly. Unless. of course, if this is a "new tactic" by the coach.
Malaysian National Cycling Federation (MNCF) should take this issue seriously and not brush it aside because the team was representing the nation in an official tournament. If MNCF is not capable of doing anything, probably the National Sports Council (NSC) - the main sposor of cycling - should make it known that cheating will never be tolerated.
But, chances are nothing will be done and probably nothing said about it.
