Apologies for lack of usually riding segments. It was pissing it!!!
Apologies for the lateness of this communiqué, I wasn't in a great state of mind over the past few weeks. I have a few things on my mind that I would like to share with you guys, things that sicken me, the sad state of what Malaysian cycling is in.

Ok now that national championships are over, let's clear a few things up before everyone starts talking. Sure if you would have talked to me a week ago things would have been different but being here at the race and seeing from a different perspective helped a lot. First of all I think its great that national champs were held, its good for everyone, uci points available, not needed to go all the way for Asian Continental Championships to get uci points. Its good for everyone. Sure there were some issues with the race not being advertised, race organisers aren't that experienced so can't blame them. The race was actually confirmed and known about 2 months ago but the news was spread through the government sports councils. Reason I didn't know about along with many others is because we aren't involved with sports councils, yes not an ideal situation but its how it is.
DVteq Fakawi together with FTW racing went to do a few runs the team's new practice track. We only managed 3 runs before the rain came. Cant wait for the next session!
This was a race that I had my eyes on for a while, first time I rode at Cikole was 2007 and its taken me 5 years to finally attend a race there. Its not the purest form of dh racing per say, there is a nice long uphill pedal near the bottom of the track. Its a great fun track to ride one but you are gonna bust a lung when it comes time to race. If you want to test your fitness, go to Indonesia, if you do well there, you will do well on any pedaly track in the world. Partially the reason why I keep going back to Indonesia, (besides the amazing food, people, friend, racing, tracks etc etc. )
