Herwin Jaya of the Polygon Sweet Nice (PSN) team from Surabaya won overall victory in the Speedy Tour d'Indonesia 2010 (TDI), despite failing to be first to cross the last leg's finish line in Renon, Denpasar, Bali on Wednesday, November 3, 2010.

Fastest times in the tenth and last leg of the Jakarta to Bali bike race went to Fakrullah Alis Ahmad from Malaysia, Sergey Kudenstov from PSN Surabaya and Projo Waseo from Team Kutai Kartanegara. All three men crossed the finish line with the same time for the day of 2 hours 46 minutes 12 seconds.

The overall best time across the 10-leg race between Jakarta and Bali was recorded by Herwin Jaya, a native of Probolinggo with a cumulative time of 28 hours 2 minutes 6 seconds followed by Fatahila Abdulah from who timed in with 28 hours 6 minutes 16 seconds and followed by Edmund Holland of Eddy Holland Bicycle Service.

Commenting on his victory, Herwin Jaya said: "I am very pleased with these results. This is my best time in my history of competitive cycling." He said the key to his victory in the Speedy Tour d'Indonesia 2010 was the quality of the team work.

Herwin's and his team's winning performance earned him the yellow jersey of the overall winner and the red and white jersey going to the team with the best time among Indonesian participants.

In the team competition, PSN Surabaya had the best time of 83 hours 36 minutes 33 seconds; followed by Custom's Cycling Club with a time of 83 hours 42 minutes 59 seconds; and CCB Colossi at 83 hours 44 minutes 54 seconds.

Within the sub-category of best times for an Indonesian team first went to Custom's Cycling Club followed by Araya Indonesia at 83 hours 47 minutes 47 seconds; and Putra Perjuangan at 83 hours 49 minutes 17 seconds.

The team manager for PSN, Wawan Setyobudi said, "these results were in keeping with our team strategy. In the last leg we were only able to preserve the yellow jersey." Wawan said all his team members performed optimally on both an individual and team basis. With the win Herwin Jaya won a purse of US$4,500 while his team won US$7,500.

Meanwhile, Fakrullah said he was proud to have performed well internationally. "This is the first time I have won outside of Malaysia, he explained. Team coach for the Malaysian National Team said his team's strategy was to limit the maneuvering space of Sergey Kudenstov (PSN) to prevent him from overtaking.

Quoted in the Bali Post, Vice-President for Public and Marketing Communications fir Telkom Indonesia, Eddy Kurnia, admitted the generous cash prizes played an important role in attracting athletes to the event. Kurnia said he hoped that next year's event does not conflict with the SEA Games.

The General Manager Consumer Service for Region VII (Eastern Indonesia) of Telkom Indonesia, Rosyidul Uman Aly, said his company is committed to continually improving the race operation. He said that as sponsors his State-owned company is committed to attracting more internationally qualified competitors to ensure next year's competition is even more intense.

As a bonus event at the end of the Speedy Tour d'Indonesia 2010 a Circuit Race was conducted covering 117.5 kilometers through the streets of Denpasar on Wednesday, November 3, 2010.

The single day event was won by Fakrullah Alis Ahmad at 2 hours 46 minutes 2 seconds; second place was claimed by PSN athlete Sergey Kudensov at 2 hours 46 minutes 12 seconds.

In the race for circuit honors the Russian-born Kudensov held the lead until the sixth lap before being overtaken by the Malaysian, Ahmad, who maintained his lead until the finish line.

Wawan Setyobudi who manages the PSN team claimed the Russian only lost the final day's event due to a malfunctioning gear.
