“Clark will not only be the epicenter of cycling, but of the entire Philippine sports this weekend as we conduct the trials amid strict health and safety protocols,” PhilCycling and Philippine Olympic Committee president Rep. Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino said. “And with these trials, we hope to show everyone that sports is capable of coming back.”

Tolentino will do the ceremonial flagoff along with Sec. Vince Dizon, the CEO and president of Bases Conversion Development Authority (BCDA), Clark Development Corp. president and CEO PBGen. Manuel Gaerlan (Ret.) and BCDA senior vice president Arrey Perez.
