Over 150 cyclists from 18 continental and eight local professional teams will join them during the three-stage bikeathon sanctioned by the UCI as a 2.2-category race that offers Olympic ranking points.

“Aside from the Olympic ranking points at stake, this is one of the few races in the Philippines, so they have to do their best and showcase their talents before family, friends and loved ones,” said cycling patron and Go For Gold team owner Jeremy Go.
