LANGKAWI, Aug 9 (Bernama) -- Junior rider Muhammad Ziyad Muhammad Hamzah has been chosen to represent Malaysia at the World Endurance Championship 2012 in Euston Park, Thetford, England on Aug 25.

At 16, Muhammad Ziyad will be the youngest rider to represent the country along with six senior riders in the championship.

He had been training hard for the championship for the past two years.

"I believe I could complete the 190 km ride, but I can't predict the position," he told reporters here Thursday.

Ranked 13th among juniors, Muhammad Ziyad of Sekolah Menengah Tunku Putra had performed well within and outside the county.
