Wong Kam-po is aiming to assist Telekom Malaysia to win the Asian team title as he and his teammates line up alongside a world-class field in the opening stage of the lucrative Tour of Langkawi today. The Asian Games road race champion won the best Asian rider category last year when he made his debut on the Tour with the same team but he has turned his focus on helping the invitational outfit seize the team crown from Asian team category holders Japan. 'Our team is very balanced this year and I'm confident that we can win it. It will be more difficult for me to win the Asian rider title again because some individual riders from Japan, China, Indonesia and Malaysia are also strong,' said Wong. The new-look Telecom team also includes New Zealander Graeme Miller, Iranian Amir Zargari, who won the time trial at the Bangkok Asian Games, and Filipino Victor Espiritu, an Asian Games bronze medallist. The 27-year-old Wong admitted he has not prepared well for the Tour but said he will not let any chances to attack slip away when riding on his favourite mountain terrain. 'My target this year is November's All China Games, not this Tour and most other riders have been preparing better than I have. I'll use the earlier stages to flex my muscles but I'll still attempt to finish well in stage two which features some hilly sections,' he said. The round-Malaysia Tour offers a great challenge as 18 professional teams, led by world number-one team Mapei and defending team champions Mercury, will be chasing a total purse of RM1.4 million ($2.8 million). Wong will again take on South Africans Kosie Loubser and Neil MacDonald. MacDonald captured the Tour of South China Sea title in Macau on New Year's Day while Loubser was Wong's conqueror at the same event three years ago. Today's race is a 182km road race from Alor Setar to Sungai Petani.
