In Remembrance

Assalamualaikum, pada tanggal 31 May 2010 NXteam telah dikejutkan dengan satu berita yang menggemparkan. Salah seorang dari ahli NXT telah kembali menemui Ilahi pada pukul 7.00 pagi. Beliau telah terlantar di hospital selama lebih kurang dua bulan atas sebab rawatan lanjutan bersama pakar. Sesungguhnya pemergian beliau meninggalkan kesan yang besar kepada NXTeam dan rakan-rakan MTB sekalian. Tiada kata dapat disusun apabila mendengar berita tersebut, lemah rasa seluruh anggota, kelu lidah tidak berkata . Beliau adalah seorang yang "steady" , suka berjenaka dan kadangkala menjadi bahan usikan manja rakan-rakan NXTeam yang lain kerana pelat Mata Ayer yang agak pekat. Amat susah sekali untuk mendengar beliau meninggikan suara. Merida HFS 2000 beliau akan kami rindui dan yang paling akan dirindui adalah gurau senda dan jenaka beliau.
Semoga Allah meletakkan kamu bersama orang-orang yang beriman wahai sahabatku.
Al - Fatihah.
(Gambar-gambar dibawah ini adalah antara kenangan kami bersama Arwah Balqis.)

Senyuman yang menjadi penawar rindu kami kepadamu wahai sahabat.

Kepada Keluarga Arwah terutama isteri dan anak lelaki yang baru berusia setahun diharap banyakkan bersabar dalam menghadapi ujian dari Allah ini. Kuatkan semangat dan hidup perlu diteruskan. Ingatan kami terhadap beliau akan sentiasa berada diingatan. Al-Fatihah.

Kayuhan Terang Malam - Adventure In Pitch Black.

Kayuhan Terang Malam (KTM 2010) was the first night off road jamboree in the Northern Region. It was indeed an event awaited by many. There are riders who really trained for this particular event including me and my other mates. The experience gained during the previous two rides at CP 3 kedah Jamboree Trail and B Zone of RUN 10 trail has somehow give us the idea on how it's going to be on the event day (KTM 10). The journey to Kulim begins at 3.00pm and 6 NXT members managed to join and ride.

After the event.

It was muddy and sandy, this is due to a heavy downpour 4 hours before the flag off. Well, this is what we call offroad right!

Bike wash! Bike Wash! Bike Wash!


Summary :

Except for the wet terrain the rest is all right. Looking forward to come back and explore the trail again. The climb is medium and suitable for night off road. The LEDs is a bit small but still visible. The downhills is a bit technical because the trail is wet and slippery (ed: Good training for balancing). Water station at every checkpoints and banana at the 4th CP saves a lot of thirsty riders.
Moto X riders can be seen at the strategic location o guide the participants

Starting and finishing location is good, lots of parking spaces and there are place to hide out if the rain comes falling again.

CONGRATULATION! to the organising Comittee.
