The “SLT Speed Up Cycle Sawariya” – the country’s longest cross-country cycle race will be held from July 27 to 31 in Batticaloa.
The launch of the event was officially announced by the SLT on June 21 in Colombo.
The race is being organized with the partnership and fullest support of the Cycling Federation of Sri Lanka which will ensure that the race is conducted according to the internationally-recognized set of rules and regulations. The “Cycle Sawariya” serves as an extension of the 2nd phase of SLT’s “Speed Up” journey which was launched last year.
“It is a privilege to us at Sri Lanka Telecom to have this opportunity to organize the country’s longest cycle race. As an organization with our society’s best interests at heart, we feel that the sport of cycling reflects a number of valuable qualities such as dedication, stamina and endurance that we at SLT value the most”, said SLT’s Chief Marketing Officer, Ajantha Senevirathne. “And we plan to do our very best to ensure that the “SLT Speed Up Cycle Sawariya” is an incredible success,” he added.
