The Tour d'Indonesia is an annual professional road bicycle racing stage race held in Java, Indonesia since 2004. The race is sanctioned by the International Cycling Union (UCI) as a 2.2 category race as part of the UCI Asia Tour.

History[edit]

The main sponsor from 2003 to 2006 was Dji Sam Soe 234, a cigarette brand produced by Philip Morris International also called Philip Morris Racing. In 2007 Tour d'Indonesia was cancelled due to lack of funding and failure to attract a sponsor. In 2008 the tour was held again sponsored by Speedy broadband access of Telkom. Until the 2010 edition Speedy remained as official sponsor of this bicycle race.
