Festival Notice Board: Olympians, ANZA to go head-to-head

Members of the Cambodian National Cycling Team, including some Olympians, have confirmed that they 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.

Rally manager Nicky McGavin also confirms that a sizable contingent of cyclists from Singapore have signed on again this year. Most of the Singapore squad are members of ANZA, a voluntary organisation with an Australian-New Zealand focus that provides mainly sporting activities for expats in Singapore.

Last year the ANZA squad seriously dusted off the opposition and, as McGavin reports, "Some of their times were amazing, they were really hardcore cyclists."

This year's event is shorter with more focus on the fun and social aspects, but it is hoped the beefed-up Cambodian team will give the ANZA squad a run for their money.

McGavin also said this year's fun ride around Angkor Wat will be led by an archaeologist, Chhay Visoth, who will give a guided tour, pointing out items of significance.
