The Tour de 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 2.1 category race as part of the UCI Asia Tour.

History[edit]

The main sponsor of the then-named Tour d'Indonesia 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.

The race was not held between 2012 and 2017, before being revived in 2018 as the Tour de Indonesia, as a 2.1 category race compared to the 2.2 it was before.[1]
