Ashleigh Gentle, winner of both PTO Opens in 2022 and runner-up at the PTO European Open in Ibiza this year, commented:
"I have raced in Singapore a couple of times. Once when I was very young, at an Asian Cup and then at the beginning of 2019.
So I have an idea of the place, but obviously with the PTO Asian Open the experience of the race will go up to the next level for the professionals, but also for the amateurs who have the opportunity to compete on the same 100km course around what is an iconic city.".
For its part, Anne Haug, who beat Gentle in Ibiza, said: “Competing against the best in the world really pushes me to get the best of myself and see how good I can be.
These PTO Tour races do exactly that, so I'm looking forward to hitting the start line in Singapore next month.s ".
