after the LIQUIGAZ criterium series in Macapagal, the 3rd leg of the Liquigaz series was held on a cold and windy November morning last saturday at the scenic town of TAGAYTAY . The course was the much dreaded not for the faint hearted SOUTHEAST ASIAN GAMES ,route which saw the cyclists go down careening from tagaytay to nasugbu..negotiating the town of TUY..then start climbing the notorious 30 kilometer up Payapa back to the finish line in Tagaytay....this classic climb we only race here maybe ONCE A YEAR...so I will take this opportunity to thank the LIQUIGAZ organizers to arnel ty, carlos gredona, richard uy, and the host doc stephen domingo, the marshalls led by Paquito Rivas and everyone who made this race a memorable one for 2008.
