THE big guns have arrived and are ready to race in what will be a very special edition of the Petronas Le Tour de Langkawi (LTdL) which flags off its silver jubilee in Kuching tomorrow.

Leading the cast is South Africa-based WorldTeam NTT Pro Cycling whose hopes in the general classification (GC) will be led by Louis Meintjes.

The South African, placed in the top-10 at both the Tour de France and Vuelta Espana in the past, is eager to stamp his mark on LTdL.

NTT, previously named Team Dimension Data, took back-to-back overall wins at LTdL in 2016-2017 through Reinardt Janse Van Rensburb and Ryan Gibbons.
