The 2018 Tour de Timor will be a five day event starting and finishing in Dili.
Over the five days riders can expect over 10,000 meters vertical ascents, visiting some of the most dramatic mountain ranges the country has to offer.
The 2018 course is set to be a much more dynamic race, including single track elements as well as some of the most aggressive descents in the Tour de Timor’s history.
For the second time there will be two “loop” days, allowing cyclists to keep their tents in position for two nights, which should allow participants to relax and explore more on arrival at evening locations.
For Timor-Leste / East Timor, sport is not just an exercise with social and health benefits, but a crucial tool in peace-building, youth engagement, education, gender equity and economic development. In this way, the TdT is not just a world-class sporting event, It is also key to the well-being and livelihoods of the people of Asia’s newest nation.
There is no doubt that sport has historically played an important and diverse role in virtually every society. More recently, sport has received more formal recognition by governments, the UN, international agencies, NGOs and civil society, as a vital tool in realizing a range of community development, economic and social goals. International dialogue and major policy developments have seen Sport for Development & Peace become a major theme on the international development agenda. Governments around the world are incorporating sport into their national agendas.
