The second edition of the Cycosports Tour de Kepri finally got under way last Friday, and after three days of hard racing in the Indonesian island archipelago that gives the race its name, the haze-induced postponement from September was a distant memory. The stand-out performances of the weekend came from Liam Kelly (Specialized Roval Mavericks) and Andrea Trindler (Anza Cycling) who clinched the respective Men’s Open and Women’s Open titles in dominating fashion. The major consequence of the delay was that over 100 of the race’s original registrants couldn’t make the rescheduled November 1-3 dates, and so the fields for each of the categories weren’t quite as deep as they would have been on the original dates. However, a race is a race no matter how many participants there are, and just under 200 men and women still took part across the competitive and gran fondo categories in the 2019 Tour de Kepri and it was a great success.
