The multiple stage bicycle race held in Malaysia is popularly known as Le Tour de Langkawi. The archipelago Langkawi is the inspiration behind the name of this event.
The race has been conducted every year since 1996, mostly in the month of February. It typically consists of ten day-long segments (stages) over ten days. While the route changes each year after year, however the Genting Highlands climb, the hardest in the tour, is always included. Tour de Langkawi is recognised by the International Cycling Union AKA UCI as a 2.HC road bicycle race in the UCI Asia Tour schedule and calendar.
All segments of le tour de langkawi are timed to the finish. Times for every concluded stage are compounded, the participant with the lowest aggregate timing becomes the leader of the race and gets to put on the legendary yellow jersey. While the general classification attracts the most interest, there are other challenges held within the Tour: the points sprinters classification, the mountains climbers classification, the Asian riders classification, the team competition classification and the Asian team classification.
