Tour of Thailand

One of the thai riders .. good luck boy !
With the arrival of spring, big cycling events are now taking place almost weekly in Europe, especially in Italy, France and Belgium. I spend a lot of time looking at them on TV, commenting on them on webboards, reading about them.

But cycling is also coming to Thailand ; to-morrow will be the start of The Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhon's Cup "Tour of Thailand", a six-days event which will go along the Mekhong from Ubon Ratchathani to Udon Thani. The race is part of the UCI Asian Tour. Stage arrivals are scheduled in Mukdahan, Sakon Nahon, Bung Kan, Nong Khai, Loei and Udon Thani ... so many words which are music to my ears ....

And then there are the riders, mostly young men from asian countries, among them two all-thai teams ... I wish them good luck and full success during this ride.
