Athletic career

After his first great success as a stage winner in the 1957 tour of the USSR, he started in the 1958 Tour of Egypt for the first time in the national team of the Soviet Union, where he was also able to become a stage winner. He made his peace run debut in 1960, won a stage here too and came in sixth overall. The state amateur from the Soviet Army Sports Club appeared in international road races until 1970. The most impressive record he left behind was the annual trip to three countries, the International Peace Tour . Within eleven years, Saidchushin started nine peace races, finished six times in the top ten and won the biggest amateur bike race in 1962 . He benefited from the elimination of Henk Nijdam , who had been at the top of the overall standings up to that point and had had a bad fall. In 1965 he finished fourth and won the most active driver's purple jersey, in 1967 he was tenth and in 1968 he was fourth. In 1969 he was second best in the mountain classification and ninth in the overall individual classification. He was on the podium four times as a stage winner and three times with the Soviet team as the winner of the team classification . In 1970 he made the last peace trip .

Saidkhushin competed twice in the cycling competitions of the Olympic Games . In 1960 in Rome he was used in the individual road race and was 34th as the worst Soviet driver. In 1964 in Tokyo he only came in 41st place, but was the best driver in a weak Soviet team. At the road cycling world championships for amateurs , Saidchuschin only stood on the podium once, in 1963 as third with the Soviet team in the 100 km team time trial .
