Looks like my wonderful luck has it that my car decides to break its knuckle (2nd time this week!!!) on my the 1st practice run, leaving me with no runs. With the help of CHI KIAN Workshop ,they managed to get the knuckle welded but due to the location we were at ,we were unable to test the car to determine if the handling was ok but a spin on my 1st qualifying run showed that it wasn’t :P…Taking a conservative 2nd run, I managed to drift the course half decently but due to being unfamiliar with the track, I took the wrong exit cone coming out !!! I’ve done this numerous of time in autocross but on a drift competition??? WTF??..this leaves me with a double zero!!!
Jane did better as she did managed to score on the qualifying run however only qualified 35th…missing by 3 spots!!!
Our heartfelt thanks to Kev, Mike, Cheryl , Chi and Kian for the help they gave and hope that the experience we gain from this will make us stronger next year!!
We will be at Dataran today to hang out and also for the autograph signing session…so hope to see some of you guys there…ciao
After biking in Taman Pertanian we then decided to go to the Challenge Park in Putrajaya. Joe Han had been here before with Mike and we were told of the ‘challenging’ trails they rode on. So thinking that I managed Taman Pertanian with the BMX , the Park wouldn’t so different. Boy was I wrong…
After hearing so much about this place , Jane , Joe Han and I decided to check the place out. I was initially a bit worried after being informed by Jane that the cycling route is 70% climbs! ;something that a single speed BMX isn’t actually cut of out for. The fact that I received stares from the people at the bike rental shed ( Jane rented a bike there , while Joehan and I rode our own) made me even more paranoid!!

Our little night bike rides have grown in members as we made up a total of 12 riders for this session!! I am also glad that the number of BMXs in the group have increased to 2 ( should have been 3 but the 3rd one suffered a pinch punture while ridding off a curb). Anyway, the 2 hour ride went by like a breeze with Terrence Lim on his Rm27,000 mountain bike bagging the king of sprint award for the night!!
