Karak: Jelajah Malaysia (JM) 2008 cycling championship, which is classified as a 2.2 category race by (UCI) close to achieve its target to be the best race in its category.

“First we have to wait for JM’s post mortem from all side including the media. What I can say is JM is already half way approaching its target to be best 2.2 race.

“There are quite a number of them who confuse JM with Le Tour de Langkawi (LTdL). We are not in any way competing with any parties, JM’s target is only to be the best 2.2 race not only in Asia but all over the world,” quoted JM 2008’s Executive Chairman who is also the owner of Ten Speed Events Sdn Bhd, Datuk Astaman Abdul Aziz.

Ten Speed Events Sdn Bhd which is organizing JM for the second year had signed a contract with Malaysia National Cycling Federation (PKBM) to organize the oldest cycling event in Malaysia for three consecutive editions.

He said that through feedback and participation of teams have proven that a lot of teams have heard of JM and looking forward to participate in the race.

“It’s a common knowledge that 39 teams wanted to participate in JM this time around but we had to limit to only 21 teams to ensure the quality of the teams and balance local and international teams participation,” he quoted.

Astaman said that he is satisfied with the crowd attending the race along the route and also at the start and finishing line as the race has received a wide coverage from the media.
