4000km on Bicycle...

It has been a year since I rode again and done 4120 km - just 880km too short from 5000km "SKT" [sasaran kayuhan tahunan].

Pencapaian SKT cuma 82% sahaja. Mungkin kerana faktor cuaca - terutamanya dalam masa tiga bulan pertama tahun 2009.

Le Tour de Langkawi 2009 - Final stage

Sunday, February 15th was the day for the 7th and de final stage of Le Tour de Langkawi 2009. There would be 12-lap criterium racing covering approximately 80+ km [3:30pm to 5:15pm] around the city center of Kuala Lumpur. Start and Finish lines were at Merdeka Square [in front of the famous Sultan Abdul Samad Building]. I was one of the freelance photographers at LTdL 2009.

3:30pm - the 7th and Last stage of Le Tour de Langkawi 2009 pushed off.

... the motions, the actions, the e-motions, the tensions... and lots of manipulations and calculations too.

...and finally the expected winner.... Gianni Savio's Diquigiovanni-Androni Gioccatoli team .

The Individual Winners - the yellow, green, red and blue jerseys.
Jose Serpa Perez, who sealed the King of the Mountain (red polka dot jersey) on previous day stage 6 with 25 points, claimed the yellow jersey today.

Gavazzi who won four of seven stages in LTdL 2009 sealed the green jersey (sprint) with 97 points, Nolan Hoffman settled in second place with 82 points


The only other jersey, the VW blue jersey for the Asian riders' classification winner, was taken by Le Tua Cycling Team's veteran Indonesian rider Tonton Susanto, who bagged his third ever win in that classification after doing the same in 1999 and 2002.

Happy New Year 2009!

When the clock strikes twelve on December 31st, people all over the world cheer and wish each other a very "Happy New Year". For some, this event is no more than a change of a calendar. For others, the New Year symbolizes the beginning of a new adventure and better tomorrow. As the new year blossoms, may the journey of life be fragrant with new opportunities, days be bright with new hopes and hearts be happy with love!

Happy New Year everybody!

January 3rd, 2009
It rained all day on the first weekend of the new year. All outdoor activities, including cycling had been cancelled.
Just stayed indoor - relaxed and looked out at the evergreen trees and shrubs...
... while listening to the symphony of birds and insects. What a worderful world!.
