Alhamdulillah, I completed the 52KM, 5 laps ride in the centre of Kuala Lumpur in 1:41:54. Ranked #43 in age category (from 153 who completed the 5 laps) & #226 in gender category. I would rate my self just OK. Many people did not manage to complete the 5 laps. Organiser had to end the ride prematurely for safety reason. I support the move. In fact they should have stopped in even 30 minutes earlier. The traffic congestion was so bad.
Some riders took the ride as a serious race. I can’t blame them. There were prizes for fast riders.
For me, as usual, I don’t race. I just want to push myself to the best position. All of us completed the 5 laps. Alhamdulillah. Rank wise, all are quite OK. Not bad at all. I can see that I don’t suffer during the climb….but cornering & descending were pretty scary when there are hundreds of people around you.
Overall, it was indeed a nice experience.
