The nation’s top cyclists test their limits anew when the inaugural staging of the LBC Ronda Pilipinas, a grueling 20-day competition, begins late September with challenging yet scenic routes serving as background.

At least twelve teams of six cyclists each are expected to vie in the 12-stage tour, which has a total cash prize of P7 million, one of the biggest in years with the individual champion getting P1 million and the team winner also P1million.

Reaching the finish line won’t be a walk in the park as the tour, exclusive only for locals, is expected to cover an estimated distance of 1,650 kilometers marked by treacherous terrains, hairpin curves and excruciating mountain climbs.

The tour, sanctioned by the International Cycling Union, starts in Cagayan de Oro and will take the riders to the picturesque landscapes of the western nautical highways, passing through Dumaguete, Iloilo, Aklan, Roxas, Calapan, Batangas, Tarlac, Vigan, Pampanga with the Vigan-Baguio leg considered the as the killer loop.

    Sa tingin ko ay ito na ang pinakahihintay ng mga siklista, ang tunay na nagmamahal sa kanila at buong pusong sumusuporta sa larangan ng sport na ito. Sana hindi matulad sa mga ibang nagpapakarera na magpapa trial ng ilang beses at pagkatapos ng lahat ay ituturo lang kung sino ang mga kasali na kahit di dumaan sa trial ay ok lang…Mabuhay ang LBC tour
