Welcome to LACTIC HELL

I took a little Genting Challenge reckie with Sergeant Sam and Carmen yesterday afternoon. Thought it would make a nice excursion and get to see what I am in for regarding the TTH Genting Challenge. Well in a nutshell, my legs were burning sitting in the car as the realisation sunk in on the hell that YOU and I are in for. S.Sam kept uttering the words “lovely”? What is up with the man? Apparently it used to be his and occasionally Simon’s weekly ride. It makes Ulu Yam look like a big fat pussy cat. I am apprehensive but I am not backing out and neither are YOU.
It looks set to be a great event S.Sam shall blog up some more details and pictures in the coming week until then I leave you with a couple of snaps I took.

climbing ulu yam is painfull. the climb to gohtong after that is just plain torture. throw in the stretch between gohtong and the peak...it's absolute torture!!! people say the pyrenees is hard. man they haven't tried genting yet. too bad it's raya and i have to balik kampung. or else this ride would have been on my to-do list :-)

But don't worry I am sure it will come around again and I will then make sure I have an excuse as good as yours!

I KNOW!!! how "fortunate" right? it's too bad now even langkawi 2009 has been shelved. have been posted to jakarta for 6 months and this place is crazy. absolutely nowhere to ride. and running outside is an invitation for an asthma attack. too bad. no more riding with TTH on saturdays. maybe busselton 2009 aye? :-)

Bussleton is on the agenda unless of course I am hopefully on route to Kona 2009 and in that case my purse will not stretch to both ;)

I am available that weekend so can I request a change of venue? I think the Genting Challenge should be once around Putrajaya
