/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – GFNY Global Endurance Sports Series adds GFNY Kuala Lumpur, scheduled for February 12, 2023. Riders will get to experience a race that starts and finishes in the heart of Malaysia’s metropolis. The 138 km long course will take athletes from the heart of the city, into the hilly outskirts and back to Merdeka Plaza for a total of 1577m of climbing.

“Racing and riding between the historic buildings and skyscrapers of Kuala Lumpur is going to be one of those once in a lifetime experiences that any rider needs to be part of,” says GFNY CEO Uli Fluhme.

“With GFNY Bali in its third edition, GFNY Philippines returning in 2023 and a third destination announced shortly, GFNY is excited to offer Asian riders more and more local opportunities. Our goal is to be as prevalent in Asia by 2025 as GFNY is in Latin America today with its 17 races there.”
