Stage 6 - Tour of Luzon: An Uphill Climb for KBS, A Heart Stopping Finish for me !

by: Mhe-anne L. Ojeda

We got lost looking for the finish line for Stage 6 of the Tour of Luzon 2010 in Subic. We got there just in time for the arrival of the first batch of riders which consist of three locals. Wow! I felt like a rider myself with the shared rush and the heart stopping finish trying to catch all the action and anxious to see my friend Reid and his fellow KBS team riders in the lead!

Stage 6 is another uphill climb starting from Subic - Morong - Bagac - Pilar - Balanga - Orani - Hermosa - Subic.. To date, this stage has been the toughest for Reid and for the rest of the KBS riders. Reid had a flat tire while on his way up the hill of Morong, but managed to get back on track after vehicles team replacement of the tire (in a snap!). He finished 17th on Stage 6 but kept the leadership overall and still wear the yellow jersey tomorrow.

We were able to eat lunch with the rest of the KBS team so that was cool.
