The former Philippine Navy team skipper, Jan Paul Morales, will tussle for the first time with his former teammates since joining LBC Ronda Pilipinas in 2012 this LBC Ronda Pilipinas 2022 edition.
The former Philippine national cycling team track cyclist had been in the Navy Squad for roughly ten years. He was one of the founding members of the Navy Standard Insurance when Mr. Ernesto Echauz, the PNSI team owner, initially formed two teams, San Miguel Marine and Navy Standard Insurance, for LBC Ronda Pilipinas second edition in 2012.
During his long stint in the Philippine Navy, Jan Paul Morales ran away with LBC Ronda Pilipinas back-to-back championship titles (2016 and 2017). The following year, in 2018, he captured the LBC Ronda Pilipinas’ Sprint King despite his attempt for a three-peat feat.
Jan Paul Morales now represents a nascent cycling team, Excellent Noodles, among the thirteen teams competing in the ten-day multi-stage bikathon.
The sensational Excellent Noodles second man perhaps will let his pedals do the talking as the tournament commences in Sorsogon Province on 11 March 2022 for the ten-day multi-stage race, which concludes in Baguio City on 20 March 2022.
When quizzed about his plans for this forthcoming Ronda, the all-rounder Excellent Noodles top gun revealed that he would vie for the third Ronda Pilipinas crown while defending his sprint leadership as well.
Indeed, the 36-year-old Marikeno rider will prove he’s not past his prime and still expects to claim the spoils against all odds.
