Ironman 70.3 Putrajaya


“Duit ku sudah songlap ke…4 million from the government per year.. 2mil for each event.. Langkawi course lay out 20k.  70.3 reg fee = 350/individual..and relay myr600.. myr200 to swim 1.9km..wahh mahalnye..quality  ada baik ke..? you didn’t hear it from me. okay?”

Wuteva ittis, i think Powerman and mr Chan’s race lagi berbaloi. No, seriously..There’s no point putting up a pretty stage here with pretty actors and actresses on ‘em. Enter my personal  blog with your own risk.

TriFalsampah of the day : kalau hidup itu kerana mata wang, mati pon kerana mata wang. Hidup atau mati,mata wang itu amatlah penting.Nothing else matter. Kan ?


IM70.3

IM70.3 : registration. Registration was quick coz I came at lunch hour, time tak ramai orang. Despite the swift registration process, the aunty- aunty kat meja tuh don't know really know what they're dealing with doing. They were not even sure team relay registration fee is how much. And girl at bike check in tanya why untuk relay don't have age-group.. hum.... I don't blame the girl. She's just a volunteer who sincerely came to help her mum who is also helping out at bike check in.

my race number.. bayar MAHAL.. 300 x 2 (rm600).. but quality.....kain ! gosh... very dissapointing !!!!!!!!!!

Kain = Cloth !! Even Pacesetters can afford more quality material race numbers !!! and we pay 1/6 - 1/8th of the 70.3 fee to enjoy a quality race. Pcesetters, Quick Release for Powerman as well XTerra do not use KAIN for race numbers ! Larian Bomba boleh lah !

Okay, enough of the rantings. If I don”t put it here, and simpan in my laptop je, basi pon you all tak tau. We triathletes pay because we want to race not just a race but an enjoyable AND quality race, both aspects which are vital for the organizers to consider.Have they ever ? I’ve always saluted Pacesetters for their quality and improvement. They’ve managed to mature and grow.. And they didn’t need politicians to jump in and run the show themselves. Malaysians and Klang Valley runners love their races and events because they’re good. 4000-5000 runners or more per event is not uncommon to them anymore. p.s. : I’m proud to say here I am a Pacesetters member ! Registered in 2005 baby !!

For my maiden IM Langkawi this year, during its press conference in Nestle house, around a month before the race, not just myself heard this with my 2 ears, but also everyone who attended the press conference ; the media, athletes, organizers etc. Sri Ram openly said ‘I am a businessman’. A 4 worded sentence which means a lot especially when talking about the future of Ironman triathlon in Malaysia.  Mark my words.

Every athlete and organizer have to know a bit of everything. If you know only 1 thing, and that 1 thing is how to generate $$, and how to look sleek, clean, handsome and perfect teeth … payah ler..we can put majulah sukan untuk negara in my wardrobe and let cobwebs appear in no time.

Tomorrow I’m just gonna race. Enjoy it, and support my other friends who will be doing the race. God Bless and all the best to everyone taking part. Can’t wait to write my race report !! LOL !!!

Once upon a time (Satu ketika dulu). Ketika aku tanned and hitam. Ketika Upiq always kacau me saying 'Anak sapaaaa ni..?'

    Do you know this date? it’s important for my preparation and to plan the accomodation.
    Kind regards
