Tabriz Bicycling Board President Nasir Hushyar spoke to Persian news agency on Wednesday.
“As in previous years, preparations were made for the tour. There were even ways to come up with different team members’ homes and ways to go. But the real problem is the financial problem in the country. ”
Nasir Hushyar noted that “Tour can continue until the end of 2018”. “If the race prize is ready, it is possible to start the tour immediately. “He said.
