Twin ph wins in Tour de Linggarjati

04:59 AM November 05, 2018

Sprint specialist Jonel Carcueva and junior cycling ace Rex Luis Krog delivered a pair of victories for Go For Gold Philippines in the recent Tour de Linggarjati in West Java, Indonesia.

The 24-year-old Carcueva from Cebu banked on a second-place performance in the road race and made sure his closest rivals won’t be a nuisance in the criterium after finishing third in the 9.8-kilometer individual time trial to bring home the general classification title in the men’s elite race.

Matej Drivonec of Slovenia, which topped the 119.60-kilometer road race, placed second in the GC after a mediocre output in the ITT.


“Even though we still have plenty of things to improve on, they have proven that Filipino cyclists can win overseas,” said Go For Gold Philippines’ Jeremy Go.

The 18-year-old Krog also ended up victorious in the junior division, just three weeks after he ruled the elite race of the four-stage Tour of Matabungkay.
