PESTA SANTAI MUARA MTB BEACH RACE 2013

Photos were from Pesta Santai Muara – www.facebook.com 

The event was held last Sunday, 31st March 2013 at Pantai Muara. The race was held in conjunction with the 2nd Pesta Santai Muara 2013 and this race was held for the first time this year.

I was invited to organize and manage the race. With the help from few MTB friends, we managed to built and create the race route which was 50% hard sand and 50% loose sand.

Before the race, a small briefing was done. Veteran 3 laps, Novice 5 laps and Elite 7 laps of 1.17km. Originally my plan was 5, 7 and 10 laps respectively of each category but since the difficulty level is exhausting, so I reduce it.

Next year, if I were given again the opportunity to organize the race, I would extend the distance around 3 to 5km per loop.

Once again, Thank you to the Head Village of Kg Muara, Pg Hj Mohammad Pg Hj Osman and Hj Hashim Hj Muhammad for inviting me to organize the race.
