Less than a month to go as we count down to the controversial Le Tour de Langkawi 2019, and a new route has been announced.
Cameron Highlands which was previously announced, has been axed from route. But rest assured, the ever popular King of Mountain stage at Genting Highlands remains, but has been shifted to Tue, 9th April instead.
On Opening Day – 6th April, the peloton will flag-off from Kuala Lumpur city center and head to our local haven for cyclists in Hulu Langat. They will climb Genting Peres before heading towards Titi, Kuala Klawang, Kuala Pilah before ending at Tampin in Negeri Sembilan.
Klang Valley cyclists will enjoy the most spoils as the peloton will arrive in Putrajaya on Monday, 8th April. The peloton will also depart from Shah Alam and cycle along another popular cycling route in Puncak Alam, before heading up to Genting Highlands on 9th April.
Track down the peloton as they will be passing popular towns along the west coast of our peninsular, namely Senawang, Melaka, Muar, Tanjung Malim, Taiping, Bagan and Alor Setar.
It is only befitting that the last two stages of the tour will end in Langkawi island. The penultimate stage will have the peloton on a ride-island 106.8km ride. The finale will start from Lang Square and end in Kuah town, in a looping format.
Time to hone up your skills for the King of Mountain stage up to Genting Highlands. This will be a rare opportunity for you to cycle up to Genting, so get your mountain goat legs ready!
