Paholio said the 100-kilometer massed start will start at 8 a.m. with a 10-kilometer UCI rolling start. After the Individual Classfication, the riders will then be flag off in at Barangay Pampanga passing Sasa,Panacan,Ilang andTibungco.
“Upon reaching Bunawan, they will start a moderate climb at the Bunawan-Mahayag section as the concreting of this road was done already last Nov, 25, 2005 ,while the Mahayag-Acasia road was implemented and finished last Feb.26, 2006,” Paholio said.
