MANILA, March 27 (PNA) — The cycling world watches as the country hosts the Tour of the Philippines on April 17-20, 2010, the first time in more than a decade that a road cycling event of such magnitude is staged on home soil.

Dubbed the Le Tour de Filipinas (LTDF) by the organizing Dynamic Outsource Solutions Inc. (Dos-1), the four-stage cycling extravaganza pits the cream of the crop of Philippine cycling against some of the world’s elite who have been constantly campaigning in pro Tours in Europe, Africa, Asia and America.

“This is the culmination of my dream for Philippine cycling,” said Bert Lina, the former PhilCycling president whose Lina Group of Companies has Dos-1 as one of its numerous subsidiaries.

Lina is known in the local cycling community as the person responsible for reviving the fabled local Tour since 2002.
