Ronda Pilipinas co-founder dies


    MOE Chulani, who co-founded the Ronda Pilipinas cycling race with Dino Araneta, passed away yesterday due to cardiac arrest. He was 45.

    Chulani was the driving force behind the LBC Ronda Pilipinas, which staged its 10th anniversary race in March last year.

    He was also a member of the PhilCycling board and a former team manager of the Pasig Pirates of the defunct Metropolitan Basketball League.

    National team stalwarts Ronald Oranza, George Oconer and Jan Paul Morales are among the products of Ronda Pilipinas.

    “He’s a loss in the cycling community. He’s very dedicated in cycling,” said Philippine Olympic Committee and PhilCycling president Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino.
