Big-wheel Cambodian cyclists who will compete in this year's Angkor Wat Bike Rally, to be held on December 7 as part of the Angkor Wat International Half Marathon Festival, have now been named.

Participants include Hun Socheat, Ran Rattanak, Cham Rong, Van Da and Koth Karaney.

Ran Rattanak and Koth Karaney are members of the Cambodia National Federation of Cycling. Ran Rattanak normally competes in mountain bike racing at a national level. Koth Karaney was the national champion for road bike racing. He's won many titles and competed in many Asean road bike races, including events in the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore. His dream is to compete in the Tour de France.

Rally manager Nicky McGavin, a former London trademark attorney, is still on the lookout for hotels, bars and restaurants to sponsor a new event this year, a cyclo race.

McGavin hopes an inter-bar race will eventuate, and she said she would provide the cyclos if the sponsors provide the bucks.
