Riders who like to combine some real exotic racing with a nice vacation get the chance this weekend in Bintan, a scenic island located very close to Singapore.
The time trial on Friday will have 348 starters and is with the 10% growth one of the biggest time trials in the series with a very international field at the start. The 17km course with start and finish in Plaza Lagoi has some undulating roads but never very steep.
On Saturday, the Classic 140km course has had a course update with a new section being added towards the finish. The course remains undulating, but climbs are never very long. Total elevation is 1270m. Start and finish are in Simpang Lagoi.
The weekend ends with a non-qualifying 108km course on Sunday. Leisure riders also have the option for shorter distances on Saturday and Sunday.
