Last February 19 and 20, 2010, PhilCycling, which is the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI)-recognized federation, staged 2010 National Open for mountain bike in Danao City where most international competitions are held, few of those were 1998 Asian Open Championships and the 2005 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games.

“Danao City has maintained its MTB (mountain bike) courses that suits to UCI standards and we expect the competition to be tough and tight,” said Danao City Councilor Oscar “Boying” Rodriguez Jr., who is PhilCycling’s chairman and UCI international commissaries for mountain bike.

Mayor Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino, the PhilCycling president informed that road race events – massed start and time trials – for the open were conducted in Tagaytay City.

The track competitions, on the other hand, were held in the same week at Quezon City’s Amoranto Sports Complex where a 400-meter velodrome stands.
