    Hi guys,

    Allow us to invite everyone to the upcoming Terry Larrazabal Bike Festival, which will happen on April 2-5, 2009, at Subic Freeport, Zamabales, Philippines.

    The Terry Larrazabal Bike Festival (TLBF), which started in 2002, is the only multi-discipline cycling event of its kind in the Philippines and Asia, where races and other activities are held for three days in one location. The races include road, mountain bike, trials and BMX freestyle and jumping among others. For 2009, the 2009 Edition of the TLBF will once again include triathlon.

    The Festival is a celebration of bicycling as a sport, health and environmental advocacy avenue that’s been held yearly in Ormoc City, Leyte, and has also become one of the primary medium to promote CYCLO-TOURISM in the Philippines. A highlight of the 2008 Bike Festival was the 3-day multi-stage road race around the Subic area called the “Tour de Larrazabal (TdL)”. The TdL was the first multi-day stage road race of its kind in the Philippines specifically designed for business executives who are also avid cyclists who wish to experience how it is to join a tour, just like the Tour de France (while also having a category for cycling professionals). The TdL for 2008 generated considerable interest not only in the Philippines. The TdL for 2008 featured scenic race routes showcasing the beautiful Subic Freeport.

    For 2008 Edition of the TLBF, the Festival was held in Subic with over 900 registered participants and almost 5,000 cyclists who trooped to Subic to witness the festivities. For 2009 Edition of the TLBF, we will also be conducting the “2nd FilBike”, the first and only bicycle and outdoor themed expo, featuring maintenance clinics.

    The Festival is officially endorsed and supported by the Department of Tourism and sanctioned by the Integrated Cycling Federation of the Philippines.

    HANS “No Way” REY, former Multiple-UCI World Champion and Mountain Bike Hall of Fame, will also be participating in the 2009 Terry Larrazabal Bike Festival. He was one of the main attractions of the 2006 TLBF, generating immense publicity for the Festival, and for the country. Hans will again perform trials demos and clinics and be the Chief Judge for the 3rd Philippine Trials Competition.

    Another guest of the 2009 Terry Larrazabal Bike Festival will be BRIAN LOPES, CURRENT UCI 4X World Champion, who has had a very successful career since becoming a professional cyclist at age seventeen and is considered by USA Today as “Undisputedly the Best All Around World Class Cycling Athlete”. Brian was a special guest of the 2008 Terry Larrazabal Bike Festival.






    By the way, I forgot to mention above.... We'll have a Bikini contest!!

    Hi guys,

    To provide assistance to the participants of the festival, we have registration centers all over the Philippines. We now also have a fully functioning on-line registration option for those have difficulty in going to partner bike shops and who might live outside the Philippines. Please visit our website:

    www.tlbf.org


    Mechanics for on-line registration:
    1. Participants have to fill up the on-line registration form and press the submit button at the bottom of the page. Please take not that you have to fill up ALL fields..
    2. Upon completion, participants will receive a CONFIRMATION EMAIL. The email will contain information for the confirmation of your registration, and a CONTROL NUMBER. This is what the participant will use as reference which he'll use when confirming his registration at Subic and in order to get his/her race kit and race number during the festival. Please take note that Confirmation of registration has to be done on April 2, or at least one day before the event/race to be joined. No confirmation of registration will be done/entertained on the day of the event/race.
    3. Participant will be given instructions on how to pay the registration fee. Payment can be done thru bank transfer, money order (Western Union), or PayPal.

    Good looking stuff there. Glad to see that cycling is becoming a well known and popular sport in RP. One of these days, I'll go home and check this festival out.... maybe even compete.
