I am seething...I made Putrajaya my triple A race, was looking forward to it...but rumours have been circulating and it is now officially postponed. At the 11th hour this does not really effect me, we were also official bike support but this can just be rescheduled.
The people I feel for are those who have made their holiday around this race and are coming from overseas. It doesn't matter if it is 1 person or 1000 coming from overseas...it really is rather bad form and very bad luck.
The reason being is H1N1...I know this is a viable excuse and IM Japan was a clear example of how the races have been effected. But it does make you think..the timing smack bang in the middle of the summer hol's really is not great.
So now it will be on Oct 4th. I want to race...I really do, but I am not sure if I can make it now due to other commitments.
On the plus side it spreads out my races so hopefully I can give each half iron I do a good effort. Desaru will now be a focus as will the Philippines which I really really really hope is not cancelled/postponed. I just booked my flights!!!!
