Zero to Hero , Mountain Biking Skills :Spectator Point of View

No Race, Amkan..... That's the phrase, Pacemaker Group love to use .  Friday is a Federal Territory Day and the traffic around PJ is bad.  It wasn't a great day for me, as my dear pet rainee was put to sleep . I truly hate the idea , I feel guilty and i truly miss him badly. To ease my pain I did a short workout at Bkt Gasing with dave and Tomato .  

The next day I did a short run with Ronnie, Jason Loh and Rosmi around Lake Garden 4 X 2.3km. It was a chit chat run for us and I truly enjoy it.  

On Sunday, I was suppose to run a 15km lsd but i cut it short to 13km due to slight left knee pain.  No Race sounds like no life so I decided to drive to Kepong Metropolitian Park to watch the Zero to Hero Mountain Bike Program as Tomato and Tri Stupe is joining the program.

 I thought you are suppose to cycle up ?

As a spectator and a part time photographer, thanks to Tri Stupe for bringing his camera to the class, I would said I have doubts whether the student is able to complete the class which is a downhill section as  I did witness their level and skill in the beginning of the class . I was afraid to capture their photo as I would imagining them crashing on me. To my surprise at the end I was cheering for them when they successfully complete the task assigned. Special thanks to all the coaches for giving them the confidence they need and catch them before they fall.
