TRIKINI: Making a Difference by Staying Fit

MANILA, Philippines – Megaworld Lifestyle Malls in partnership with GEO Events Management held the urban fitness party Trikini in the McKinely West Park last August 19, 2017.
Trikini featured three basic elements – a 5K run, 15KM bike, and night party to all attendees in a safe and exclusive location right in the heart of the city. Trikini set 2 major areas for the event: an Active Zone and a Fest Zone. All race-friendly runners and cyclists set their weekend fitness fix at the Active Zone. Guests who preferred a more relaxed experience at The Fest Zone joined poi and hoop workshops amid picnic grounds and watched high profile entertainment acts such as SinoSiKat, Extrapolation, and Sanya Smith.
Trikini is the first event of its nature that raised donations for SOS Children’s Villages Philippines. For forty years, the organization has provided health care, housing, and education to underprivileged children and families in the country. Cash Prizes were automatically donated to SOS Children’s Village Philippines, with winners receiving prizes and tokens from participating brands such as ON Shoes and Colnago.  
Winners of the 5K Women’s Category
Winners of the 5K Men’s Category
Winners of the 15K Cycling Category
“The ultimate goal is to encourage more city dwellers to live active lifestyles and enjoy outdoors, no matter what the season!” says Sam Okal of GEO Events Management. “The Trikini Series shall continue in other locations and seasons aligned with our mantra that it’s always a matter of here and now to get fit and enjoy the outdoors.”

Why Should We Legalize Keirin Race in the Philippines?

Why Should We Legalize Keirin Race in the Philippines?

Betting on dreams is the business of gambling. There is a prospect of becoming a millionaire overnight even just a few thousand pesos richer. Indeed, the poor majority seem to find a real bargain in betting, no matter what odds of winning are. Keirin, in the eyes of the law and government is illegal. Why Keirin race? What is illegal here is its “operation” needs congressional franchise  the necessary permit or authority to operate the game or business.

However, the act of betting is not evil or illegal. Lets take the case of an ordinary store that operates without the necessary license. This business operation is illegal due to lack or absence of the necessary license. However, buying from this store is not illegal. The act of betting is a social act aside from an act of personal desire to win some money. The choice of money of riders that compete with one another in the veledrome is something that generates discussions and exchanges. It is not something that is done in secrecy behind closed doors. What is so terrible about? If the poor and destitute to put their last savings- and their last hope- into bet on three numbers, lotto or fighting cock, they do so out of their own free will. The illegality of keirin obviously doesn’t stop people from betting.

This may be the first step towards stamping out culture of corruption among law enforcement officers and local officials. What is more immoral is to discuss about it, talk about it or argue about it without offering any alternative or affirmative action that would ease the burden of poverty to the majority of the people in the country.   Never mind those moralists who, more popish than pope, opposed legalization of Keirin race in the Philippines, yet offers no solution to alleviate the suffering of the people. To make Keirin legal will be dependent on our lawmakers. Is there any business entity in operation today that can provide its workers with these amount of P 300T daily or P9M a month?

The factor of moral value attached to the game of Keirin and to any game for that matter, is dependent on the players. Roughly 11% of the country”tms labor force is unemployed. The more employment means more revenue for the government from income taxes. As an operating business, approval of the Keirin Race project provides jobs to plenty of unemployed masses, People who are in dire need of work to earn a living for their families. As men of intellect and freedom, we know our limits; we can tell if it is enough or more than enough; we can tell when to go on or when to make halt. Can anyone point out a person who committed suicide for losing Keirin? Abandoning his or her family? There are more families broken and more businesses that have gone bankrupt because casinos. The legalization of Keirin race in the Philippines will ensure that proper revenues will go to the government which may be utilized to support operational and administrative activities of law enforcement agencies for the promotion of peace and order.

Furthermore, it also inspired us to experiment with a bike-sharing program which will be launched in the near future.”

Ten foreign teams composed of riders with vast experiences in countless Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) races, will be giving their Filipino counterparts a run for their money in the 2011 Le Tour de Filipinas, which kicks off on April 16.

Bert Lina, the former Philippine Cycling (PhilCycling) president and overall chairman of the Le Tour, said the homegrown talents will have to dig deep if they want to figure prominently in the race.

Le Tour de Filipinas is one of only two UCI-sanctioned races in Southeast Asia, the other being the Le Tour de Langkawi in Malaysia.

The local challenge will come from Smart, 7-Eleven, American Vinyl, Wow Videoke, Roadbike Philippines and Air21 teams.

They will be facing South Africa’s Team DCM, Giant Kenda of Malaysia, CNN Colosi of the Netherlands, Iran’s Suren Cycling, OCBC of Singapore, Bridgestone (Japan), Snow Leopard (Mongolia), Azad University (Iran), and Malaysia’s Terenganu Team and Le Tua Cycling.

But Lina, the Air21 chairman who is responsible for reviving the Philippine Tour in 2002, is confident about the Filipino cyclists’ chances.

Our riders are highly motivated and will not be intimidated,’‘ said Lina during the event’s press conference. “Inviting these foreign teams will definitely elevate the level of competition, which will benefit our cyclists in the long run.”

David McCann, already 39, is coming back to defend his title. He is riding for Giant Kenda of Malaysia.

The 2011 Le Tour, which is being staged under the advocacy “Save the Seas,” is presented by Kia Motors with Smart, Air21 and the Lucio Tan Group of Companies led by Tanduay as partners. Other sponsors are Maynilad, Sign Media and Canondale-Mavic.

Also present during the press conference in a Manila hotel were Tagaytay City Mayor and PhilCycling president Abraham Tolentino and Paquito Rivas, whose Philippine National Cycling Association (PNCA) will manage the race.

Also with Lina and company were Kia (Columbian Auto Car Corp.) President Gina Domingo, Kia marketing services manager Paterno Soriano, Smart team manager Carlos Leviste, Tanduay regional marketing manager Marc Ngo, Maynilad advocacy group head Patricia Bermudes-Hizon, and IBC 13 chief Eric Canoy.

Gary Cayton, chairman of the organizing committee, said the first stage will be an 89.6-km circuit race on Roxas Boulevard.
The Tour entourage will then travel to Bataan on the same day by ferry from Manila Bay to Orani for Stage 2, which will be 157.6 kms Balanga to Iba (Zambales) on April 17.

From Iba, the race will go to Lingayen, Pangasinan, for the 156.2-km Stage 3, before the Tour ends with the dreaded 156.2-km climb to Baguio City via Kennon Road.

The Tour will run until April 19.

Lance Armstrong displeased at magazine cover

This is not the first time that Lance Armstrong was covered on Outside magazine so you would assumed that they have good relationship with each other. But why the sudden displeased?

Was it a pimple, his hair color or maybe he was fat in the picture well  not really, apparently his shirt was edited and he did not like it. As I was reading the news at the 38. BFD. that was printed on the shirts was never the shit that he wore during the shoot.

Here is the meaning of what was printed of the shirt,the number refers to Armstrong’s age and the letters are an acronym for “big [expletive] deal”.

I would also be upset with this but is he really on 38? I am sorry but He looks older in this picture, would you agree?
