"We are happy at the progress of our wards, they are taking part in tournaments for exposure so that in the nearest future, they would be the cyclists to beat. We don't make winning a top priority and we are consciously building in our cyclists the spirit of sportsmanship.
"So, our wards did their best and we are hoping that they would raise the name of BFCC in the 2017 National Youth Sports Festival. We try to measure the performance of every cyclist in our own way using certain indices because not every athlete will win a medal in a race, but when
we are reviewing their performances, we will be able to discover some improvements and where we did not, we let the cyclists know this and make him or her to improve," Kolapo said.
