I had doubt riding the Le Tua 100km ride as it's a day after my company event plus the name Le Tua means everyone is going to race this, leaving me a puff a smoke farrr behind.
Anyway, trying to convince myself, this is not a race. KOM (King of the Mountain) trail is just for fun (brainwashed by someone). IR (Independent Racers) convoyed from Subang to Bukit Jelutong (starting area).
Starting lineNot a race but there's prize for the fastest male & female *ignore ignore ignore*
MC was telling about Le Tua. Community. Sports & health. Blah blah blah....quickly...sun coming up liau
1st KOM SummitThere was water station at the 50km mark, a self pitstop at 70km (petrol station). O.J. was kind enuff to pull me for about 25km until we came across the "dragon back"
I was ok at the 1st few lumps, but when I got to the 5th lump, the gradient was too great. I wasn't shy to get off the bike & push since my knees was starting to cramp.
The last 2 lumps gradient was milder but longer. I found out that I am able to climb whilst sitting upright rather than getting off my seat & grind.
After that was a pleasure riding back as going home always seemed shorter.
Got placing somemore
Anyone wanna buy my Size S shirt? I had to pay for this u know
I must have my finishing photo
Total distance was about 95km in like 4.5hrs. Hey!! I know I can ride 100km in an ok time. But if you wanna torture me, yeah, add the hills.
*majority of the photos were taken off other ppl's album. Thanks to them
