Filipino riders get another chance to earn valuable points in the hope of qualifying for the Tokyo Olympics with the holding of the PRUride PH 2019 road race in Subic from May 24 to 26.
The three-day event is the first professional race to be staged by British life insurer Pru Life UK and a UCI 2.2 accredited stage race.
Several international teams are expected to join the meet and give local squads a run for their money, according to Pru Life UK Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Marketing Officer Allan Tumbaga.
He mentioned that continental teams from countries like Hong Kong Canada, Australia, Indonesia, Sweden South Africa, Brunei, Korea, Vietnam, and Uzbekistan are among those which are coming over.
“We expect something like 13-14 international teams to compete. So we’re quite excited about it,” said Tumbaga during the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum Tuesday at its new home at the Amelie Hotel Manila.
