MANILA, Philippines – A national champion’s jersey will be awarded to each of the winners of the massed start and individual time trial races of the PhilCycling’s National Open for Road which kicks off today and tomorrow in Tagaytay City.

The jerseys are in accordance with regulations of the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), the world governing body for cycling which, through its president Pat McQuaid, has recently reaffirmed its recognition of Tagaytay City Mayor Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino as the legitimate cycling federation president of the PhilCycling.

The national champion will be wearing the champion’s jersey-which is coveted and considered sacred by the global cycling community – in all local and international UCI races he will compete in for the duration of 2010. He is also entitled to UCI points which are necessary for him to be invited to major international races.
