Urbandub takes ‘70s Bistro stage to raise funds for Filipinos competing in international race

It’s definitely an honor that the Philippines will get to be represented in the global stage of cycling. That's why we're excited with the Filipino cyclists of Team ABC. However, qualifying is just the beginning, expenses for the competition is another hurdle.

Rock band Urbandub will headline a fundraising gig to help cycling group Team ABC in their journey to the inaugural UCI Gravel World Championships in Italy’s Veneto region. The concert will be on June 21, 7pm, at The ‘70s Bistro in Quezon City.

Team ABC is the combination of the UCI Gravel World Championship qualifiers from two Filipino cycling groups Built Cycles and Dirtysouth Multisport. They’re composed of Binz Angeles, Neil Claves, Ajok Jacobe, Vincent Palisoc, Chuck Ronquillo and Josh Suma.

The fundraising gig ticket is priced at 700 pesos. Aside from Urbandub, the band Soundcheckers will also perform. The ’70s Bistro is located at Anonas, Quezon City.

Being qualified for the UCI Gravel World Championships is not an easy feat. Last April 3, the first series of the UCI Gravel World Series happened in Bongabon, Nueva Ecija and only the top 25% athletes from each category were qualified to advance and compete in Italy.
