PRURide PH 2019 Subic Is Now Underway


After a successful stint in Filinvest, Alabang,  the country's largest cycling event, PRURide PH, kicks off its long awaited races and races slated May 24 to 26.  Professional riders numbering 150 came to compete in the UCI 2.2 Stage Race to earn points and qualify for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

In order to represent the country in the racing category of the competition, the athlete or biker must have at least 10 UCI points in the Individual UCI World Ranking.  Local elite teams, joined by these international racing teams will make their way from Harbor Point in Subic all the way up the peak of Mt. Samat.

PRURide PH also welcomes amateur cyclists in its fold to experience the thrill of the event.  There are PRURide Masters Race, the Virtual Ride, and the Philippine Strider Cup.  Fun rides are also made available with the PRURide Gran Fondo 30, 60, 100 kms with ambassador celebrities, Zoren Legaspi, Kim Atienza, and Grethcen Ho leading the pack.

For entertainment, Calla Lily and Gracenote were on hand to revel with the crowd.  A special concert for free to cap off the Saturday race.

"While cycling is an increasingly popular sport, we also want to give beginners and enthusiasts a platform to experience its fitness benefits.  At PRURide PH, we hope to encourage everyone to begin or continue their healthy lifestyle,"  says Allan Tumbaga, Pru Life UK Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Marketing Officer.

All PRURide PH participants gets a 2019 jersey, while all finishers will receive a finishers medal.  For the races, cash prizes up to PHP2 million are at stake.  A great purse if you ask me.
