The "Tour De France" is considered the richest road race in World cycling with numerous other Country's having their own respective "Tour-De-Races". In Asia , Malaysia is famous for the "Tour De Langkawi". Being a Mumbaikar i am familiar with the long running "Mumbai-Pune Cycle race" but totally illiterate on the other cycle races being held in various other parts of India. Would some cycling authorities please enlighten me on the various "Cycle races in India" and also the "PRIZE MONEY " offered. Ultimately, its the "Prize Money" attraction that keeps any sport actively alive professionally, otherwise it just becomes a "Passtime". Till date the media has never created a "Indian cycling star" or even given cycling much prominence in the "Sports Pages".Thanks to the reach and educative power of the "Internet" that manny genuinely interested cyclists have at least a common platform to voice their views and also learn about the sport in India from others.
