Tour de France Singapore Criterium Press Conference
Emcee Singapore: Charmaine hosted the first official press conference of the Tour de France Prudential Singapore Criterium.
The Tour de France Singapore Criterium is returning after a successful inaugural edition last year, with the 2023 race to be held from Oct 28 to 29. The race will see some of the world’s best cyclists including Tadej Pogacar, the leader in the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) rankings and two-time Tour de France champion.
This second edition promises to stir up the passion of fans in Singapore even more, in celebration of sport, cycling and the champions of the biggest race in the world.
The upcoming edition will see a shorter 3km route that loops around Suntec City’s Fountain of Wealth and includes the War Memorial Park, Esplanade and Merlion. The 32 riders will complete multiple laps with the first across the line after 90 minutes declared the winner.
A weekend festival with international music acts will also be held.
STB’s executive director for sports and wellness Ong Ling Lee said: “This prestigious event strengthens the buzz of our vibrant city and differentiates us as a destination for world-class events.”
The organisers said that no fees will be charged for this edition. Prudential has initiatives planned for this year i.e. PRURide Seeker’s Criterium and PRURide Seeker’s Society. These activities prioritize enthusiasts’ active lifestyle and recognize the significance of incorporating it into our daily routine. They invite enthusiasts to enjoy cycling with local cycling events for people of all fitness levels.
The Tour de France is one of sport’s fastest-growing entities. With a Netflix series now out and a truly engaging 2023 edition, this year’s race had broken new viewership records.
