Believe it or not.. eventho this race is not so popular n less participants, but full of international runners (name list pls refer at result below). I could say this is one of der most highly blood pressure race in my life, any single mistake ie.. slowing down a bit, tight shoe lace, site seeing, that it, u're out! According to my view, Multimedia Chen Fong Fong shld be der favourite top ten finisher. Due to unexpected underdog, he lost it very badly n ugly.
Regarding der race organising, their is nothing to shout about. RM3 linggit race, their is nothing you can expect lah. But der RM3 oso include Bread, Mineral water, Certificate & hard earn trophy.
About der battling, as usual at early stage 1km. I was trailing behind Chen n Locomotive Lai at least 100m gap, cinya geram always like that wan. My engine pick up very TNS slow, using Perodua engine is like that wan. After 1km liao, I overtake Loco Lai. Wit 1.5k to go, I manage to get close to Chen. Chen try to breakaway from me, but I never let der golden chance slip away. Stay close to his butt, waiting for der right time to turbo. Before 1km to go, I oredi on der turbo n pia 101% pace to finishing.
Happy bcoz I beat Multimedia Chen, Sad bcoz Chen n Loco Lai were out of top 10 podium. Lai n Chen go back immediately after der run. In der end, I was der only lonely runner waiting for prize giving, which started only at 10am [insert Yawnn here]
My recent hardcore training wit Paul Tergat n M. Ramachandran finally paid off. This both mad fellas are on high voltage mileage ie 120km per wks, is a honour training wit them. Paul Tergat will leave M'sia after KILM 07, he want to go back to afrika liao. So in der mean time, I will take this opportunity train wit him kau-kau lat before he tanam jagung.
