It's been a very very very very long time since I updated the blog. Many things have happened, many trails ridden. So much to do but so little capability.
Anyway, one step at a time.
I did the PKNS Antara Gapi MTB Challenge in August, my first ride on my new Norco Bushpilot. The Kona went to Melaka to serve Anson ( I hope he is happy with it)
The ride was well advertised, no one wanted to participate at first but Dr Khairul persuaded me to join in. In the end he did not turn up. So I joined Ezad and the others of KTR for the ride. It was a memorable ride for me as I managed not to finish last this time.
Anyway the pictures.
The stalls at the start, breakfast set, Nasi Lemak plus Hot Tea RM 2.00 only
Ezad and Khalili in the crowd
I am the Fox man
Setting up, group photo at parking
Joining the crowd
Many teams and many colours, no sign of Dr Khairul
The ride is on
Into the offroad trail
Climbing into the rubber estate, traffic jam now
After exit from rubber estate, on road, not sure of what is ahead.
Climbing steep hill, (you really should try this)
Now into Oil Palm estate
Outside oil palm estate on village track
Into another Oil Palm Estate
The notorious downhill (imagine the RRI radar road without the tarmac)
Now the pushing begins
Trying to catch breath after pushing

Another rear view plus worn out pushers resting under Oil Palm tree
The push continues
Ezad, I don't want another push photo
Ezad posing, we are almost there I think
Tired pusher posing
There are still other pushers
Resting butterfly on hand of resting pusher
Pushers resting while pushing and in pushing pose
Proton T bolt overtaking Proton T Blaze in push mode
Aiyaa, tarak habis tolak laa
Resting pusher going to assistance of tired pusher now turned walker
The pushers succeed to the top ( or so we thought)
They tricked us, still pushing
The final summit, no more pushing I think
I was wrong
The mid point of the trail, PKNS refreshement lorry. Very decorative
Escort riders at lorry, the apples have already been finished.
Disappointed escort riders drinking orange juice.
Can take away ahh?
Into another Oil Palm estate
Route beside ex mining pool turned into lake
Finally the finish line. 29 km later
Posing on the stage, Rosli and Khalili were top 100, Ezad and me top 500.
