I agree with the other post. I was in HCMC visiting and love cycle racing. Was so disappointed that I could not find specific time and location information. My hotel guy looked on line and could not find any info in Vietnamese either.

This is really great that Cycling in Vietnam (HoChiMinh in particular) can receive some coverage like this on a national newspaper. It would be even greater if you could publish the location and the schedule of the race or stage in advance so that we can go watch these competitions!! We really wanted to see the first stage in HCMC but we could figure out the starting time and location! If more people can attend, this is a great way to promote the sport. Thank you and best regards. Philippe.
