Organized by Central Spectrum (M) Sdn Bhd (CSSB), Pulau Indah 180 was introduced to move away from the traditional short distance fun rides to hype up the atmosphere for LTdL and to bring cycling fans closer to the event, event manager Ciclista Sports Sdn Bhd have decided to capitalize on the immense popularity of century rides this time around.

The route, was flagged off from CSSB’s Office, Pulau Indah, taking riders through Pulau Indah Industrial Park (PIIP), Selangor Halal Hub and into the Pulau Indah Highway to Banting, Jenjarom and across to Teluk Panglima Garang, Morib and Bagan Lalang, then returning to Banting towards Sepang SIC, Olak Lempit, Pandamar and back towards the island crossing Pulau Indah Highway and finishing at CSSB’s Office, Pulau Indah, covering a total distance of 180km.

There were four categories with a total of RM 29,000 in prize money up for grabs; Men Open (18 – 35 years), Women Open (above 18), Junior Master (35 – 44 years) and Master (45 and above) categories. The event managed to attract local amateur cyclists as well as international participation from 17 countries.

Chief Executive Officer of Central Spectrum (M) Sdn Bhd Mahmud Abbas, who is also a cycling enthusiast, was amazed with the reception. “I am pleased with the significant turnout today and trust everyone had a memorable experience. We organize this ride not only to bring people to see the current development in the island; it is also to promote Pulau Indah out to the world. We look forward to having more visitors coming to the island after the event.”

Chief Executive Officer of LTdL 2016 Emir Abdul Jalal said this event is a pre-event promotional ride and also serves as a test run to make sure all our system run smoothly in preparation for Le Tour de Langkawi, coming this February.

“Our team made sure the organization of Pulau Indah 180 is run at the best standard, the route itself challenges the physical and mental of all our participants. I do hope that this event will become a yearly event.”
