YOUNG Rustom Lim made the Philippines proud by bagging the Men’s Junior bronze medal in road race of the 18th Asian Youth Cycling Championships on Thursday in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.

Lim, now the pride of cycling hotbed Guimba in Nueva Ecija, submitted a similar clocking of three hours, one minute and 45 seconds behind gold medal winner Wong Hong of South Korea and Wong Pi Sien of Hongkong in the competition for 18-under riders from all of Asia.

The three finished at the tip of a massed finish—with Lim missing out on a better result by a mere half-a-wheel’s length. The race took the 42-rider field around an 11.2-km circuit for a total 120 kms distance (11 laps).

Lim’s podium finish practically made him the darling of the Youth Championships—first, because it was the Philippines’ first medal in an Asian-level competition since the now-retired Victor Espiritu’s bronze in Men’s Elite of road race in the 1998 Bangkok Asian Games, and second, because all member countries of the Asian Cycling Confederation (ACC) and the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) are aware of the predicament the PhilCycling is enduring at the moment.

“It’s a big accomplishment, and it is proof to the fact that Philippine cycling is alive and a program is in place, regardless of the crisis we are made to suffer in the federation,” said Tagaytay City Mayor Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino.

Tolentino is the president of the PhilCycling recognized by the ACC and the UCI, but not by the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC).

“Inspite of the absence of government support, the PhilCycling needed to send Rustom to the competition because we are very aware of his caliber,” said Tolentino. “Halos lumaki na sa PhilCycling si Rustom at ayaw namin masayang ang kanyang capability.”

It was the first international exposure for Lim, one of three Filipino riders who were sent to Nakhon Ratchasima, host of the 2007 Southeast Asian Games, by the PhilCycling without any government support. The Philippine Sports Commission suspended supporting national cyclists because of the leadership issue hounding the federation.

Veterans Irish Valenzuela and Tots Oledan will compete in the 160 kms Men’s Elite road race on Saturday in the 31st Asian Cycling Championships, which runs simultaneously with the Youth Championships. The small Philippine team is accompanied by coach Cesar Lobramonte.

Lim, the Philippines’ No. 1 junior rider who topped the December PhilCycling national open in Tagaytay, rode with the lead group for most of the way, and was very much in the fight in the sprint finish of the race that was staged on a winding circuit.
The mens Elite team of Tots Oledan and Irish Valenzuela finish 14th and 16th out of the 59 entries in 19 countries won by japanese tour de france mainstay Arashiro Yukiya of the pro tour team Europcar of France, 2nd Halmuratov Muradjan of Uzbekistan and 3rd place Hoshein Askari of Iran, The Philippines finish 8th out of the 19 countries entered behind JAPAN, UZBEKISTAN, IRAN, KAZAKHSTAN, KOREA, HONGKONG, VIETNAM, PHILIPPINES, MALAYSIA, THAILAND..

MANILA, Philippines – Youngster Rustom Lim and veterans Irish Valenzuela and Tots Oledan will represent the Philippines in the 31st Asian Cycling Championships and 18th Asian Junior Cycling Championships from February 8 to 19 in Nakhon Ratchasima, Thailand.

Lim, 17, will take part in the road events of the Junior Championships of the annual competitions staged by the Asian Cycling Confederation under the auspices of the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI).

The Nueva Ecija native Lim emerged as the top junior (under-18) rider in the PhilCycling National Open conducted in Tagaytay City.

The race was launched by association president Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino.

Valenzuela, a veteran of the Guangzhou 16th Asian Games, and Oledan, will compete in the Elite category of road cycling.

The PhilCycling sends riders to the Asian Championships, which are held annually.

For this year though, Tolentino said the federation could only send three riders because the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) allegedly no longer supports cyclists in the national pool.

“We in the PhilCycling have an obligation to the sport and to the cyclists,” said Tolentino. “So even without the PSC support, we are sending these riders, although a token delegation, to the Asian championships.”
