Just plug in >Taiwan KOM Challenge< into a search engine and you will get the website for the race. Yep, I know its ridiculous cumbersome, but the censure on this site can't handle the site name in a link. Lol.

Race starts around 6:30am local.

Taiwan KOM Challenge is a great race, in a beautiful area. Shame that it's on at a time of the year when the pro's who attend only soft pedal. Simon Clarke was the biggest name there this year and came around 20th, would be interesting to see what a decent pro on form would do compared to the rest of the field.
How to ride like a Tour champion!
