Hello Raymond
JUNIOR : is not over 18 yrs
OPEN : everybody can

Here is the current list of Philippine Participants if you still wish to join let me know.

What is the excitement all about? EGAT is the toughest 4 days stage race for amateur businessman class participated by Asia Malaysia Singapore Indonesia Thailand Philippines, Australia, USA, European country Spain, Austria and Germany.

Why should i spend 30,000 for a bicycle race in Thailand?
because as per our informers this will be the Last of the Tour of Egat races.
How many times will you as a cyclist have the opportunity to ride representing the Philippines as your country? The answer...Unless you are a professional cyclists who can rival Victor Espiritu or you belong to the Philippine Cycling team..your chance to race for your country as a cyclist is probably ZERO

that is why we take this opportunity to ride and race in thailand..never mind if we dont win it..we want to race against the better cyclists to see if we are at par with the world.

rounded figure...30,000 pesos for each rider includes plane ticket and hotel accomodations.
