For the 30km amateur groups, Liu Chunliang from Dengkou County and Hao Xia from Urad Front Banner respectively topped the men’s and women’s events.
“I’m delighted to enjoy the charm of cycling and see the autumn scenery of Lake Ulan Suhai,” said Jia after the race.

Its water area now reaches approximately 320.1 square km, which is 3.4 percent higher than last year.
