Several regions in Indonesia organize annual international cycling races of UCI 2.2 status, such as Tour de Singkarak in West Sumatra, Tour de Ijen Banyuwangi in East Java, Tour de Siak in Riau, Tour de Celebes in Central Sulawesi, Tour de Lombok Mandalika in West Nusa Tenggara, Tour de Malvccas in Maluku, and Tour de Flores as well as Tour de Timor in East Nusa Tenggara. But Tour de Indonesia is the only one which achieved UCI 2.1 status.
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 a 2.1 category race compared to the 2.2 it was before.
