PRESS RELEASES

RUJANO SEIZES TOUGHEST STAGE AND YELLOW JERSEY; MANAN LOOKING GOOD FOR GREEN
06/03/2010

GENTING HIGHLANDS - Five years after he finished second on the climb en route to second overall in the race, José Rujano went one better today on the torturous slopes of Genting Highlands.

The ISD Neri rider dropped all of the other riders on the mountain, regarded as one of the toughest in cycling, and reached the line two minutes and nine seconds clear of the next finisher, Gong Hyo Suk (Seoul Cycling). MORE>>


MANAN MAKES HISTORY WITH FIRST MALAYSIAN STAGE WIN
05/03/2010

PORT DICKSON - If there was ever any doubt that the Asian riders had stepped things up a level in this year’s Le Tour de Langkawi, today’s stage confirmed that point beyond question. Less than twenty-four hours after Japanese champion Taiji Nishitani (Aisan Racing Team) won into Parit Sulong, Anuar Manan made history when he took the first-ever Malaysian stage victory in the race.

The talented 23 year old burst out of the peloton at the end of the 111.5 kilometre stage to Port Dickson, hitting the line ahead of Vidal Celis (Footon-Servetto) and René Haselbacher (Vorarlberg-Corratec). What’s more, he won the first intermediate sprint and ended the day a full nine points clear of Michael Matthews (Team Jayco Skins) in the green jersey competition. MORE>>
