Cycling readies national road championships
Another sporting event makes its comeback from pandemic absence.
The PhilCycling National Championships for Road returns after a two-year hiatus with the country’s top riders gathering from June 21 to June 24 in Tagaytay City.
“With the pandemic restrictions eased, it’s high time to bring the National Championships back on the road,” Philippine Olympic Committee president and PhilCycling chief Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino said. “We scrapped the races in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic and last year, we could only stage the National Trials under a strictly controlled environment in Clark.”
The national championships will feature races in road, individual time trial and criterium for men and women elite, under-23, juniors (17-18) and youth (16-under).
Registration is ongoing online via the PhilCycling Facebook page.
Not everyone will be accommodated though as national championships will be strictly screened, with only riders with potential to join the national team to be accepted. The final roster of participants will be announced on June 17.
