Zein, who has competed in previous years, was part of the Xempower Pro Team this year.

“Having the experience of taking the 2014 MSIG Lantau race, I was more excited about this race," she said.

"It was less windy and the scenery of the course was enjoyable.

“I love VK race but I did not take the 2015 MSIG Lantau VK yesterday because of the injury on my knees.”
