In November this year, while visiting the Motor Sport Center in Ashgabat, President Berdymuhamedov voiced a proposal to organize an international rally “From Amul to Khazar”.
And at the last meeting of the Government, the Head of State added this instruction, proposing to organize a cycling marathon along this route, and along the sections of the legendary route in the velayats – sports races.
It’s not easy to drive across Turkmenistan from east to west even in vehicles, as our country is one of the world’s largest countries. In any case, Turkmenistan, according to this indicator, occupies one of the leading places among the CIS countries.
Who knows, maybe after the cycling marathon along the route of the Great Silk Road, the Bike Marathon of Dakar series will also appear on the territory of Turkmenistan?
