Recommendations:
To be competitive in flat bunch sprints in international events like SEA Games and Asian Games, Filipino cyclists must race internationally to learn that unique skill set which is rarely practiced within the style of racing found locally in the Philippines. There is much more informality in terms of teams organizing strong lead out sprints in our local races. It is quite difficult to produce results in those international races when other countries like Malaysia have perfected the technique through years of international racing experience.

Marella Salamat has Asian Games medal potential in the future (with proper support).
