Elgun Alizada

Elgun Alizada has been involved with cycling for seven years. He has won both Azerbaijan and Baku champion titles amongst teenagers during this period. He also finished in 12th place in 2014 European road race championships, which is his favourite memory because it was a good result for Azerbaijan.

Who is an idol in your life and why?

I admire Swiss biker Fabian Cancellara as an athlete, because I consider him as one of the strongest candidates in this sport.

What happens in a typical training day for your sport?

I try to improve my results during trainings.

What other sport would you like to compete in if you were not playing yours?

Triathlon is very interesting for me, because it includes swimming and jogging as well as cycling too.

What is difficult about your sport?

It requires a lot of endurance to ride a bicycle for several hours without stopping, but I already got used to it.

Your favourite music star?

Lana Del Rey, Indila.
