Berakhirnya Tahun 2009

Assalamualaikum dan Salam Satu Malaysia!

Tahun 2009 akan berakhir dan pelbagai peristiwa dan acara telah berlalu. Bagi pengayuh mountainbike tahun ini dimulakan dengan kayuhan Mesra 2009 dan diakhiri oleh Kayuhan Warisan Taiping beberapa hari yang lalu. Sesungguhnya setiap aktiviti yang dianjurkan ada kelemahan dan kekuatannya. Seperti yang kita ketahui komuniti pengayuh mountainbike semakin membesar dan banyak riding group muncul seperti cendawan dan kita berharap walaupun banyak pecahan kumpulan kita tetap bersatu hati dalam menyokong aktiviti yang sihat ini. Marilah kita memandang dari sudut yang positif atau seperti kata pepatah " ... Buang yang keruh, Ambil yang jernih....". Kepada penganjur yang mendapat banyak pujian - kekalkanlah kualiti dan pencapaian anda. Bagi yang menghadapi masalah dan kelemahan - baikilah dan buatlah muhasabah diri. Marilah kita bersatu dan sama-sama membantu bagi mewujudkan lebih kekuatan didalam arena ini.

" Together We Are Strong"

NXTeam ingin mengambil peluang ini untuk mengucapkan selamat maju jaya kepada semua pengayuh Mountainbike di Malaysia. Salah dan silap terkasar bahasa kami dahulukan dengan mohon kemaafan.
" Ride Safely and Intelligently"

KAWAT 2009 - What are they trying to prove !

Kayuhan Warisan Taiping 2009 !!!!

As early as 5.45 am riders from accross the nation arrived at the Rakan Muda Complex to ride the year end or I can say the closing MTB jamboree for the year 2009. From the previous KAWAT 2008, many good reviews to the event but 2009 has really showed the other side of it. To be honest, and sorry for K-RAITT MTB club, I have to say that this is the most HAYWIRED jamboree I have ever been. Well, some hiccups before the event is accepted but when there is no action taken to improve it ...... well I mean throughout the event !!!! What else can I say ...... " LEPAS TANGAN...". I feel pity to the injured riders who broke their bones, cut their flesh and dead thirsty. We believe what they wrote in the blog saying that there will be two (2) refill stations at KM16 and KM25. As for riders who dont like to bring their hydroback this is a good news because the can refill at least two times before finishing all the trail.

As I ride..... push ...... rest... the speedometer has indicated that KM 16 is just 800m away, I started to motivate myself to keep on pushing. BUT, my hope was blown to ashes as the is no such thing called water station exists. What the heck!!! ...... I nearly loss my rationale over that matter. Imagine riders who dont refill and they get themself stuck in the SO CALLED TOUGHEST MTB trail in malaysian jamboree history. Some of them fell, have no reserve energy even to step down the 45 degrees slope which means a big no for 80-100mm travel bike if they are to ride.

To K-RAITT or to whoever who organized this event, I would like to say a big thanks! because you guys make me realised that if you asked a hiker to built the trail then you would get to witness and event called :

"Tanggungan & Gelongsoran Warisan Taiping"

Mr. Wan from Besut. Its nice to meet you there bro!
