KUALA LUMPUR, June 11
About 150 participants have confirmed participation in the Edaran Endurance Classic (EEC) 2008 at the International Endurance Park in Lembah Bidong, Terengganu on June 26.
The participants for the three-day event are from Australia, France, New Zealand, Russia, Italy, Bahrain and Brazil.
The tournament's organising committee chairman, Datuk Abdul Hamid Mustapha said Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin would also participate in the EEC.
"Tuanku Mizan will participate in the 160km ride, which is his favourite event," he told reporters here.
He said the EEC would feature four individual and team events in the 160km, 120km, 80km and 40 km ride.
Abdul Hamid said the main events would be the 160km ride which gave riders the opportunity to obtain their Certificate of Competitiveness (COC) for the World Endurance Championship (WEC) to be held on Nov 9, at the same place.
"The organising of this year's EEC is part of the preparation for the WEC 2008 which Malaysia is hosting for the first time," he added.
The WEC is held every four years.
Abdul Hamid said so far, only five Malaysians, including Tuanku Mizan, were eligible to participate in the WEC.
The others are Datuk Kamaruddin Ab. Ghani, Abdul Halil Alihan, Mohd Shuaib Ishak and Rosdan Mohd Nor.
