Deliver Your News to the World – International cyclists compete in Langkawi during January


DirectRooms reveals that Malaysia’s leading cyclists as well as top overseas riders will be competing in a gruelling race in Langkawi during January.

Le Tour de Langkawi is an endurance race similar to the French Tour de France that will see riders competing over a series of ten different stages across Malaysia. The entire race covers a distance of over 1300 kilometres which comprises a mixture of hill climbs as well as racing on the flats.

Previous editions of the race have included only seven stages so this year’s event will be pushing riders to the limit with three extra stages which travel from Dataran Helang to the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur.

Special jerseys will be on offer for the fastest cyclists through certain stages including the stage four climb to Cameron Highlands and the legendary assault on Genting Highlands the very next day in stage five.

Distances for each stage range from 94kms up to 156.5kms at the longest section and up to 23 teams are set to take part in the event from countries worldwide.

Spectators booked into hotels Langkawi ( can take up positions at a series of points along the course during the ten days of racing from 23rd January to 1st February 2011.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head at DirectRooms commented: “Le Tour de Langkawi is one of Malaysia’s biggest cycling events and sees hundreds of spectators in attendance. Many of these visitors will be looking for hotels so people heading to the island should book rooms online.”
