Binh Duong Television Cycling Tournament
May 23 - May 30
The Binh Duong Television Cycling Tournament, Hoa Sen Plastic Pipe Cup, is scheduled to start on May 23 this year. The event is co-organised by the Vietnam Cycling and Motor Sport Federation, Binh Duong Television & Radio Station, and Hoa Sen Group.
The annual event attracted last year the participation of nearly 70 cyclists from 11 teams nationwide such as An Giang Plant Protection, VUS-HCM City, An Giang, Dong Thap and Hanoi.
Cyclists will compete in seven stages covering a near 800km long course which starts in Binh Dinh Province, before passing through a number of other provinces and ending in Thu Dau Mot City, Binh Duong Province. Although the event has only seven stages, participants have to conquer six mountain passes including Vinh Hy, Ngoan Mục and Prenn.
