Talofofo hosts Tour De Guahan 110k race
by Dave Delgado
Guam - The 2nd Annual Tour De Guahan 110k International Road Race took place yesterday starting and ending at Jeff's Pirates Cove. Cyclists from Japan, Australia, Korea, Saipan and the U.S took to the grueling course that had them battling through heavy winds and hills.
Klye Bateson from Australia told KUAM Sports, "It was a really tough day out there on the bike I think that all the riders would agree that was the case with the hills and the wind. It was a real enjoyable day and I was really happy to come here for the week and I really enjoyed my stay over here and I would like to come back and do it again next year, it would be a really good thing and hopefully bring some more Aussies over here and have another good year over here next year for the race."
He added, "The course was a lot tougher than I thought it would be especially with all the wind over here and the terrain on the island was really good. There are heaps of hills in sections of the racecourse so it makes it tough and let's us test the legs of the other guys. The race was really tough but I definitely enjoyed my time here on the island and everyone is really friendly and I'm really looking forward to coming back next year and do it all again."
Bateson also said. "The weather was really windy nut people at every station give me more energy to go up the hill and I rode with 3 guys and they were really nice and I'm really happy to finish. Thank you to organizer Ben and PIC and Guam people, really nice."
