Last weekend saw a strong contingent of Tour de Bintan qualified cyclists hit Albi, France for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships. There were 18 riders in the Individual Time Trial, and 36 riders in the road race who seized their moment to shine on the world stage. Congratulations to all cyclists for a successful race.
Special mention to Amanda Nabi who had a very successful weekend coming 6th in the F40-44 category in the Individual Time Trial, and following up with a 4th placing in the road race after a bunch sprint for third place on the podium with three other riders. Keita Iwashima was also in reach of a podium position after coming 7th in the road race after a bunch sprint for third place with five other riders.
Shout out to Edo Bawono for being the first cyclist to represent Indonesian at the UCI Gran Fondo World Championships, and Angus Agnew for representing us in the 70-74 year old category!
We also have an inspiring story for you, Robert Marchand, the oldest athlete in the event became the official World Champion for the 105+ age category!
