Jonathan Tumulak, Cebu Provincial government’s focal person on traffic management, said this during press briefing on Monday, April 15, on the Kasayuran sa Kalambuan Forum in the Cebu Provincial Information Office,.

Tumulak said that the road starting from the boundary of the City of Naga in Barangay Inayagan until Barangay Tina-an would be temporarily closed for the three races in the event on that day.

He clarified however, that only the oceanside road (right, facing Cebu City) will be closed for the event.

“Giawhag nato nga walay mutabok anang mao nga dan (We are suggesting that nobody crosses the road),” Tumulak said. 

According to Tumulak the professional competitors are the ones that will go first, and the average speed they make goes up to 30 – 40 kilometers per hour.
