West Nusa Tenggara eyes sports tourism after Lombok race

Lombok in West Nusa Tenggara (NTB) is considered to have potential as an international sports tourism destination following the successful Grand Fondo New York (GNFY) Indonesia 2016 bicycle marathon on Sunday.

"In addition to being a home to many tourist attractions, Lombok and NTB in general have very developed infrastructure, particularly for bicycle races," NTB tourism and cultural agency head Lalu Mohammad Faozal told The Jakarta Post during the race in Senggigi, West Lombok, on Sunday.

Around 600 cyclists from 31 countries participated in the event, comprising around 200 foreigners and 400 Indonesians. From the starting point at the Santosa Senggigi Hotel, the cyclists passed along the 80- and 180-kilometer routes, which included some tourist attractions in West Lombok, Central Lombok and North Lombok, before heading back to the hotel, also the location of the race’s finish line.
