We are very happy to announce that Ken Cheng, a former champion and coach of Hong Kong mountain biking, and Hong Kong rider Shelly Tam will be the two spokespersons for this years Changchun Jingyuetan international forest mountain biking marathon.

As a former member of the Hong Kong cycling team, Mr Cheng participated in Asian MTB championships and the HK national MTB championships on behalf of Hong Kong. He also became the champion of the open group of the Hong Kong mountain bike championship in 2016. He was also one of the first Chinese to complete the Cape Epic marathon in South Africa (the other was his teammate, Fang Chen). After his retirement, hes still active in cycling circles and writing for magazines, doing TV presentations for the Olympic cycling competition, being a bicycle coach etc. Hes providing professional cycling lessons to the average person, and hes doing a great job of spreading cycling culture and bringing the glamour of cycling to more people.

More happily, he met his wife Shelly Tam while doing his favorite sport of cycling. Shelly was originally a fan of triathlon. Under the influence of Ken Cheng, she fell in love with mountain biking and took part in mountain bike competitions at home and abroad. Chengs success cannot be separated from his wifes support and help. We are very glad to be able to work with this model couple as our event spokesperson. Hopefully their story will encourage more cyclists. With the selfless support of partners, mutual respect and understanding, they can go further with hobbies and life.

In Chinese cycling circles, Cheng is definitely a legend and an industry model. What about the wonderful story of him and his wife? Well post an interview with them later. Please stay tuned.
