Pru Life UK is set to launch another edition of PRURide PH, the country’s biggest cycling festival. In 2020, Pru Life UK is bringing its high-octane races to Clark, Pampanga, taking place from March 11 to 15.

Next year’s edition is expected to welcome more than 2,500 cyclists, including 18 local and international professional teams, who will race in 10 categories. Competing participants can join the Virtual PRURide, and PRURide Criterium which feature different races, including fixed gear, road bike, and mountain bike races.

The event next year will also include the Fun Cycle, a new cycling activity meant for Pru Life UK agents and employees.

Another highlight of the event will be the PRURide UCI 2.2 Stage Races, a three-day race accredited by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI), the world’s governing body for cycling,which will allow cyclists to chalk up points to advance to bigger international competitions. This is PRURide’s second year to be included in the UCI World Calendar.

“We are excited to launch PRURide PH 2020 after the success of our first three editions. Since becoming UCI 2.2-accredited in 2019, PRURide PH is expected to grow bigger and become more exciting,” shares Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Marketing Officer Allan Tumbaga. “It is now a five-day marquee featuring recurring cycling activities made more thrilling with the addition of new routes in Clark and Tarlac. With these, we aim to offer the best PRURide PH yet to our recreational and professional cyclists from the Philippines and Asia.”

The festival will also usher the return of PRURide PH’s celebrity ambassadors, Gretchen Ho, Kim Atienza, and Zoren Legaspi. Together with other participants, they are expected to compete in various full-powered festival rides.

Launched in 2016, PRURide PH aims to engage the growing cycling community in the Philippines, raise awareness on cycling as a sustainable alternative mode of transport, and promote health and wellness through Pru Life UK’s We DO Health commitment.

“Through PRURide PH, we want to show that having an active lifestyle can be a fun activity enjoyed by friends and families. At the same time, we hope to inspire others to get on a bike and start their own fitness journeys,” adds Tumbaga.

Prudential RideLondon promotes an inclusive cycling community

Cyclists from all over the world gathered in the United Kingdom for Prudential RideLondon last weekend, August 3 to 4. The world’s largest cycling festival witnessed 100,000 participants clock in more than three million miles across seven events.

Sponsored by British financial services giant Prudential plc, the annual festival is composed of a series of events for amateur cyclists and professionals that culminates in the London-Surrey Classic.

“The race is known for its high-octane categories, but we also maintain a friendly atmosphere that welcomes riders from all walks of life and expertise levels. Cycling is for everyone, whether they are professionals, amateurs, or hobbyists,” shared Prudential plc Communications Director John Oliver.

The Surrey 46 is a 46-mile route perfect for younger and amateur cyclists who want a taste of adrenaline. Meanwhile, families and those who want to enjoy the day on traffic-free roads can participate in the FreeCycle category. Beginners can join ride leaders who can accompany them at a relaxed and easy pace. This category also has an Inclusive Cycling Hub, where riders with disabilities can use adaptive bikes.

This welcoming environment is the result of the London mayor and the local transport unit’s goal of encouraging more people to cycle often. As part of the city’s program, the government has created more bike routes, infrastructures, parking spaces, community projects, and events. The program also works with schools and businesses to provide free bicycle training.

The growing interest in cycling can be seen in the city thanks to these efforts. Transport for London anticipates tens of thousands of locals to take up cycling after engaging in the event. The accessibility for bikes in the UK capital makes cycling the most popular transport option, especially during rush hour.

The vibrant cycling community is similarly growing in Manila. In fact, in a survey conducted by Pasig City Government’s City Transport Development & Management Office, 62% respondents who are non-cyclists have considered biking. Local government has started to roll out initiatives in an effort to promote cycling as a way to commute among Filipinos. For instance, bike lanes around the capital and neighboring cities like Pasig are increasing. In addition, legislators have proposed development of policies, infrastructure, and facilities to properly integrate bicycles as part of the public transportation system.

Pru Life UK aims to support this growth through its local efforts in promoting the activity. Earlier this year, PRURide PH 2019 witnessed more than 2,500 cyclists from across Asia take part in the Philippines’ largest cycling festival with 18 categories.

In addition, the British life insurer’s support and delegation to Prudential RideLondon was part of its We Do Health, a campaign to encourage healthy living in the Philippines. Celebrity ambassadors Kim Atienza, Gretchen Ho, and Zoren Legaspi joined the Gran Fondo, a non-competitive race in 30, 60, and 100-kilometer rides. As a continuation of their journey, they represented the Philippines in Prudential RideLondon, joined by Pru Life UK employees Kahlil Robles, Ryan Benguelo, and Nelsi Rabe.

The three celebrity ambassadors carry the advocacy of promoting health and fitness among Filipinos.

“As a life insurance company, we show our commitment to promoting healthy living and financial security,” said Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Marketing Officer Allan Tumbaga. “We hope to reach more Filipinos and send a message across that health plays a big role in the quality of our life. And cycling is an affordable, fun, and easy way to achieve this.”

Last year’s PRURide PH champions Jan Paul Morales and Jermyn Prado once again
dominated and defended their crown in PRURide PH 2019 Criterium held on April 7, Sunday at
Filinvest, Alabang. Hundreds of cyclists participated in the action-packed races categorized by
bicycle types such as fixed gear, mountain bike, and road bike

After the adrenaline-pumping course where participants raced in a number of 1-2km laps, 43
cyclists won grand prizes up to PhP 50,000.

Morales and Prado snagged gold medals in this year’s Criterium Road Bike (RB) Open Male
and Female categories. Prado topped returning athletes Avegail Rombaon and Marella
Salamat of Corratec who came in second and third in RB Open Female, while Morales easily
outperformed his teammates Ronald Oranza and George Oconer.

Returning athlete Ismael Grospe of Go for Gold ruled the first wave of RB -25 and below
followed by Daniel Ven of Navy-Standard Insurance and Jonel Carcueva of Go for Gold.
PRURide PH 2019 ambassadors Gretchen Ho, Kim Atienza, and Zoren Legaspi also took
the challenge of the Criterium races. Legaspi tested his speed at the road bike age group
category together with Atienza, a triathlon enthusiast but a first-timer in competitive Criterium.
Ho, on the other hand, joined the road bike open female category, also her first-ever bike
racing experience.

“We are proud of the success of our first run this year. This leg sets the tone of the whole
festival and shows what cyclists from across Asia can experience in PRURide PH 2019,” said Pru
Life UK Senior Vice President and Chief Customer Marketing Officer Allan Tumbaga.
Criterium is just the first of PRURide PH 2019’s two legs and will be followed by the PRUride

teams from across the globe—including Uzbekistan, Brunei, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Australia,
South Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Ethiopia, and of course the Philippines—can collect UCI points
and earn their tickets to compete at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics in Japan.

Meanwhile, aspiring racers can also join the PRURide Masters Race to experience the thrill
professionals go through. Enthusiasts can cycle with the ambassadors in the non-competitive
PRURide Gran Fondo in 30-, 60-, and 100-kilometer options. Both events will be held on May

Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series 2019

Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series divers, Orlando Duque (COL), Rhiannan Iffland (AUS), and Xantheia Pennisi (AUS) held a special media gathering and workshop at the Rizal Memorial Complex, Pasay City. The event was hosted by Eleanor Townsend Smart (USA), Red Bull Cliff Diving Athlete and founder of the Clean Cliffs Project. Together, the athletes introduced their sport to those in attendance and shared their experiences from previous competitions.

After a short question and answer session with the nation’s leading news outlets, the divers gave a glimpse of what to expect at the first stop of the 2019 Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in El Nido.

“It’s a big challenge of mine to break my personal best again,” says Rhiannan Iffland. “Scoring consistently higher at each event is the one thing I want to focus on this year.”

As a veteran of the sport, Duque’s goal for this 2019 season is a bit more conservative, stating that he wants to “just hang in there one more season and then say goodbye.”

Xantheia Pennisi, the 1st competitor of Filipino descent to compete in the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, is excited to be back in the Philippines after 7 years. A newcomer to the sport, Pennisi is ready to showcase her skills in front of her family, stating “I feel very special to be representing Australia and the Philippines.” She goes on to say, “My goal is to place in the top 5 at all the competitions. I know my Filipino family are all supporting me, and I want to dive for them and make them proud.”

Smart, Duque, Iffland, and Pennisi then took the time to share their knowledge with members of the Philippine National Diving Team for an in-depth diving workshop. This allowed members of the National Team to improve their takeoffs and dive executions by learning from four of the world’s most decorated high divers.

“We’re excited to share the morning with Orlando, Rhiannan, Xantheia, and Eleanor,” shares Marie Dimanche, Chairman of the Philippine National Diving Team. “Having an international event of this scope in the country will go a very long way in recognizing high diving as a premier sport.”

The upcoming 11th season of the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series opens in El Nido, Palawan, on April 12th, 2019, in Miniloc Island’s Big and Small Lagoons. Twenty-four (24) professional male and female divers from eighteen (18) countries will take off from breath-taking heights of up to 27 meters with only their concentration, skill, and physical control. El Nido will mark the first and only stop in Asia on this year’s tour.

Where to Watch Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series

Together We Ride Stronger: Shell Solidifies Support for Local Biking Community

Kicking off at Baguio City last July, Shell Bike Fair wraps up this year’s festivities with a bang this Saturday, September 22 at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC), Pasay City.

The biker community in the Philippines has grown exponentially as more and more riders consider two-wheeled vehicles as a more practical and convenient mode of transport. Based on the latest statistics from LTO, the number of registered motor vehicles in the Philippines has grown to 10.5 million as of 2017.

Pilipinas Shell, a reliable partner of the biker community, in making their rides better celebrates the courage and resilience of bikers as they take their daily journeys despite the difficulties that they face in weaving through obstacles on the road.

“This day is really to express how grateful we are for the support that we received from the Filipino biking community,” said Shell V-Power Brand Manager, Mark Malabanan. “As our theme says, together we ride stronger. We are honored to be chosen as their partner on the road, being there with them through the years. And, as we have for more than a hundred years, Pilipinas Shell continues to strive to make life’s journeys better for all motorists.”

Participants were treated to special offers from Shell and event sponsors as well as exciting games and booth activities. Performances by Rico Blanco, Rocksteddy, and other local acts also rocked the event alongside celebrity guests Daiana Menezes, Yam Concepcion, and Phoebe Walker.

Five winners each brought home scooters or motorcycles that were raffled off as major prizes: Honda CBR150, Yamaha Mio i125, and Suzuki Raider J115. The biker community was also given the chance to express their creativity through the Modified Bike and Helmet Design contests.

The highlight of the day was the announcement of the big winner of Shell Outriders: the nationwide search for the best bike club.

A total of 17 finalists representing Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao were picked out through careful screening of hundreds of entries received over the past two months. The chosen clubs set up creative displays at the convention hall to showcase their love for riding and how they exhibit personal and social courage. The champions received a cash prize of PHP 100,000.00 and fuel vouchers worth PHP 50,000.00.

“We put up this search because we want to recognize bike clubs who exemplify the brand values and ideals of Shell. We were amazed to see how passionate they are for what they do and how they push to continue to outride anything.” said Shell Advance Brand Manager, Lorrie Ramirez.

This year’s Shell Bike Fair was made possible by Shell Advance and Shell V-Power, led by their passion to be the most reliable partners on the road. As a global leader in power and energy, Shell continually works to deliver smarter products and cleaner energy solutions.

Shell Advance motorcycle & scooter oils and Shell V-Power premium fuels work together in providing complete engine protection and world-class performance and efficiency on the road. With these, riders are empowered to outride the challenges that they encounter on the road.

Pru Life UK fetes national cycling champs off to Prudential RideLondon 2018

Cycling national champions Jermyn Prado, Ismael Grospe, Jeremy Maraña, and Aidan Mendoza are all set to see action in Prudential RideLondon 2018, the world’s largest cycling festival, over the weekend of 28-29 July 2018 in the capital of the United Kingdom. They, together with other winners from the local cycling event PRUride PH 2018 which took place earlier this year and Pru Life UK’s employee representative, will form the eight-strong official delegation to represent the country.

Backed annually since 2013 by Pru Life UK’s parent company as the title sponsor, British financial services giant Prudential plc, Prudential RideLondon is expected to see more than 100,000 participants cycling more than three million miles in seven different events.

Headlining the delegation is Prado, who was named double-gold national champion for winning both of PRUride PH 2018’s Philippine National Road Race Championships Women’s Elite and Criterium Women’s Elite. She will be representing the country in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100-mile event.
Meanwhile, Grospe, who participated in last year’s Prudential RideLondon as a rising 18-year-old cyclist, is making a return this year, but now as a national champion for Philippine National Road Race Championships Men’s Elite U-23. He will join the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 46-mile event.

Rounding out the lineup are Maraña and Mendoza who are national champions for Individual Time Trial Women’s U-23 and Criterium Men’s U-23, respectively. Brompton Challenge winner Jun Minagawa is also with the group to represent the country in the exciting Brompton World Championship.

Pru Life UK employee and cycling hobbyist Ryan Lamayo will join other employees from Prudential’s business units in Asia to ride the Surrey 100-mile event. Also with the delegation are PRUride PH 2018 raffle winners John Kenneth Cruz and Bertrand Tepltixky.

“We are proud that aside from having our largest delegation from the Philippines to date – with eight strong and highly competitive cyclists ready to overcome the challenges of the long ride – they are the Filipinos’ champions in advocating cycling as a way of life,” said Allan Tumbaga, Pru Life UK’s Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, during the send-off celebration on July 19.

“Prudential RideLondon banners cycling across London to encourage healthier and more active travel, and this is what Pru Life UK wants to emulate here in the Philippines. We hope to help raise awareness on cycling as an alternative mode of transportation so we can all work towards having a healthy, safe and environment-friendly community for generations to come,” he continued.

This is the third year that Pru Life UK will be sending an official delegation to the Prudential RideLondon. The Company has been advocating cycling since its maiden cycling event in 2016. It eventually became the country’s largest cycling festival as PRUride PH 2018 where over 2,000 participants saw action over the two-weekend festivities in January this year.

The delegation will fly to London via the Philippine Airlines, Pru Life UK’s official airline partner.
