Lina revives Philcycling’s Padyak Pinoy racefest


Former Philcycling head Bert Lina yesterday revived the famed Padyak Pinoy, injecting new hope in the group he once headed as president; which will organize a second summer tour after the highly-successful Liquigaz Tour of Luzon last week.

Also a supporter of basketball and golf, Lina, who has relinquished the position of PhilCycling president and is now chairman emeritus of the governing body for the sport in the country, promised an equally interesting summer odyssey on wheels, which took a leave of absence last year.

It will be organized by Dynamic Outsource Solutions Inc., another one of Lina’s firms under his Lina Group of Companies.

“Thanks to Mr. Lina, we are bringing the Padyak Pinoy back this summer with the same exciting and competitive flavor its predecessor, the Tour, has been annually providing Filipino sports fans,” said DOS-I president and Tour organizer Gary Cayton.

Lina’s passion for sports is legendary. In 1998, he joined the Metropolitan Basketball Association (MBA) via his Laguna Lakers team, which also represented the Philippines to several Asian tournaments such as the Asian Basketball Confederation in 1999 and the Jones Cup in 2000 and 2001, among others.
