Le Tour de Langkawi on Monday
Don't miss the amazing Le Tour de Langkawi riders coming through Seremban on Monday when they are flagged off from Senawang in the 6th stage of the event.
Most of the riders will be pretty tired by now after clocking up almost 1000km before entering this stage, and with three testing consecutive hill climbs first up on the days schedule, there may be some big changes in the leaderboard classifications.
The first category climb, across Bukit Putus, comes after just five kilometres and is soon followed by a second category climb in Seri Menanti, then a third category climb in Inas after 44 kilometres, before the peloton races towards the finish line at the coastal town of Muar.
At present, Australian Scott Sunderland leads the sprint and general classifications after the opening stage but it's anybody's guess who will lead by Monday 27th February as the race is filled with great riders from all- around the globe. There are Americans, Italians, South Africans, Japanese and many other nationalities poised to take the coveted trophy in this Malaysian race.
Terengganu Cycling Team's climb specialist Nur Amirul Fakruddin Mazuki is currently leading the Mountains competition so expect him to either be in the forefront on Monday to gain some points from any of the three scheduled climbs.
Get there early as roads will be closed. The riders are flagged off from Giant in Senawang but call the organisers for more details on +603-7832 6064 or go to their website http://www.ltdl.com.my
