It may seem a little bit strange how I started cycling when I won my first bike (a Proton Blaze mountain bike) as a lucky draw prize on 10th March 2006 ...I was very sure that the draw was "fixed" by Amir Pujangga & even more surprising when I won a Proton T-Bolt mountain bike as a an NTP (Nearest to the Pin) prize at an OPA Golf game in Johore on 1st April 2006 - April's Fool ? So since that day,there's no turning back! Got a Proton T-Sprint Road bike on 6th April 2006 & that's it...at least hitting 120km per week!

Now I caught the cycling bug & have been the "clown" since serious cycling on 23rd March 2006 till now...frankly dare not put up photos of cycling for quite sometime because a bit worried that I would give it up after a few months!

Well,after buying a new Wilier Triestina Imperiale (Italian) priced at Ringgit five figures , it has become a serious affair! So have to enter a serious cycling competition & that is the Malakoff Duathalon where you got to RUN 10km, CYCLE 50km & RUN 5km on 30th July 2006 at Putrajaya......crazy eh at 54 yrs old!

Had a great time at the Duathalon as Competitor number 248 Category 50yrs-59 yrs (only 19 of us) = Results?
Completed the Race in 4 hours 11 mins,so managed to get the Finisher's medal & got number 193/228 & also 16/19 for Age category (mind u......two fellows in my age category ended their race in an ambulance )

Not bad for a first try at 54 years old!
