MHDA 2010 Race #1 Mount Austin, JB

MHDA 2010 Race #1 Mount Austin, Johor Bahru
30-31 January 2010

thanks for guys who make this event successful to bring Malaysia Downhill community together..
Element JB, ROAM, Folker and everyone i forgot to mention.. -tribute from me who only there to support and participated.

hot, dry and friendly people.. (except at road).. road rage was everywhere.. wakakaka!

the jamal's~
The Track
arrive at JB around 1pm, check out hotel and everything.. around 4pm go checkout the track..
this time i'm not alone, form now my bother will join me compete using seze!

is was a 2min track concise of jumps, sandy offsets, 4x section, gnarly rockgarden and dinoshit!! hahaha... the push-up was short and i like~ during the training session, haziq crash at rockgarden with his bike flip over him thus making his first official crash.. hahaha welcome to the darkside bro~

The Race
coz we stay at nearby hotel, a lot of participated also stayed there.. i was quite pump that morning seeing everybody at hotel's lobby setting up there bike, warming up and everything..
seronok and happy dude!

The seeding was on time and smooth (kudos to organizer) but starting point was crowded. But nevertheless it was fun and tiring. I got the chance of meeting other rider and chatting which i usually don't.. i really sucks at social skills.

rock garden - thanks to daddy's camera

my time start 30 second after haziq launched, and manage to catch-up with him near at finish line with 2min 07sec + incredibly tired!!! hahaha fitness suda lari ooo...

final run starts around 2pm. my starting was good until arrive at 4X section.. really mess-up all the jumps.. no speed.. and final tarmac stretch is superbly tiring!! my legs were shaking when i get off my bike. only manage to shave 2second from my seeding time..

looking at elite riders time which is aroung 1min 40sec always keep me wondering.. how the hell that they do it.. waaaa guess im still need training..

luckily i got the lucky draw prize... xc helmet.. jadilah~

that's is.. until next race~ MHDA 2010 Race #2 Bukit Cermin, Putra Heights
--i really need time to train--


currently most wanted girl.. kuikukui
