Kuala Lumpur, 8 November 2015 – About 2,000 cyclists from all walks of life converged in the heart of Kuala Lumpur this morning for the challenging 42km OCBC Cycle KL 2015 ride which saw them cycling past some of the capital’s most iconic landmarks. 
The route, featuring five loops round an 8.4km stretch of city roads, flagged off at Dataran Merdeka and took riders through Jalan Raja Laut, Jalan Sultan Ismail, Jalan Ampang and Jalan P Ramlee, before getting back onto Jalan Ampang and heading into Jalan Dang Wangi, Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, Jalan Raja and Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin. The route then featured a bend through the National Mosque roundabout before participants headed back to Dataran Merdeka.
OCBC Cycle KL 2015 is title-sponsored by OCBC Bank (Malaysia) Berhad and organised by Multigreen Events. It is part of the ASEAN Cycle Fest, which is supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Kuala Lumpur City Hall and the Malaysian National Cycling Federation.
ASEAN Cycle Fest also featured an hour-long criterium for elite riders from ASEAN. 
Speaking at the event, OCBC Al-Amin Bank Berhad Director & CEO Syed Abdull Aziz Syed Kechik, who also participated, said the ride was a fitting carry-through from OCBC KL Car Free Morning, which is also title-sponsored by OCBC Bank.
“The thinking behind OCBC Cycle KL 2015 draws from both OCBC Bank’s experience as title sponsor of the highly popular OCBC Cycle Malaysia over the past four years and also the introduction of the OCBC KL Car Free Morning last year.
“When we began our journey in sponsoring cycling events in Malaysia back in 2011, there was no KL Car Free Morning and mass participation cycling was in its infancy. So, we invested significantly to become part of an initiative to offer rides for everyone regardless of riding experience and age. Now, with the introduction and our title sponsorship of KL Car Free Morning, we are already catering to the needs of the leisure cyclists and children among us. 
“So, it is with this in mind that we put together the 42km OCBC Cycle KL 2015, for the more competitive cyclists among us. We are pleased with the significant turnout today and trust everyone had a fantastic experience,” he said.
In addition to OCBC Cycle KL 2015, the public had an eye-fest when the top sprinters of Southeast Asia congregated to compete at speeds that are rarely seen in the city centre.
Apart from OCBC Cycle KL 2015 title sponsor OCBC Bank, other sponsors of the Asean Cycle Fest included Genting Malaysia Berhad (main sponsor), Le Coq Sportif (official cycling musette), 100Plus, Ciclista, Sunplay, Rocktape, Deep Heating Rub, FOX, Motoshoot Cycling TV, Garmin and Inno Car Rack, Great Eastern, Phiten, Cycling Express, Bertoni Eyewear Italy and Vittoria (neutral service provider).
The event also brought together various players in the region involved in cycling, cycle-related supplies, sports clothing, bicycles, bicycle equipment and tools and so forth who participated in a Bike Mart at Dataran Merdeka Underground.

Tour of Borneo 2015 Jersey Winners
KUNDASANG, 4 November 2015 : Peeter Pruus powered his way to a deserved overall win in the Tour of Borneo despite a strong push from Asian riders in the final stage today.
Pruus (Rietmu-Delfin Continental Cycling Team) was in control throughout the 181.1km stage from Kudat to the punishing high altitude terrain of Kundasang, winning in a time of five hours 19 minutes and 17 seconds.
Team 7-Eleven Roadbikes Philippines riders Mark John Lexer Galedo and Marcelo Felipe gave chase but were forced to settle for second and third in 5:19:22s and 5:20:31s.
The Estonian took the yellow jersey (general classification) with a total time of 16:16:27s and also bagged the red jersey (mountains classification), as many had anticipated.
The 26-year-old climber said it was the perfect way to end his season.
"This is the last race of the season for me and to end it with a win is just great," said Pruus.
"I did not know if I could win it at the start of the tour because I knew it would be tough here with the routes and the weather.
"But today I just felt really good and it all went to plan. I was aware that I needed to control seven other riders who were also in contention for the GC.
"But the team did their best to help me and I have to thank everyone."
Nur Amirul Fakhruddin Mazuki (Terengganu Cycling Team) finished seventh in the stage for fifth overall in the GC but managed to make the green jersey (points classification) his own. 
CCN Cycling Teams' Hari Fitranto (Ina) took the white jersey (Asian classification) as Team 7-Eleven Roadbikes Philippines won both the Asian and general team classification titles.
Hari, who finished fourth in the fifth stage and second in the GC, said he was disappointed to miss out on winning the yellow jersey but was grateful to emerge the best Asian.
"I tried to take the Yellow but Pruus was just too strong, I tried to drop him towards the end but he matched all my moves.
"It is still a decent achievement for me as I had only managed a top 10 finish overall in 2013 and to take the white jersey is also good."
The best overall team and best Asian team Classification went to 7-Eleven Roadbikes Philippines.
Tour of Borneo is organized by Borneo International Cycling, held from 31st October to 4th November 2015. The 2.2 category Tour is sanctioned by the International Cycling Union (UCI) and is listed in UCI Asian Tour calendar, it is hoped to promote Sabah as the ultimate sports tourism destination in Malaysia, and promote cycling in the state.
