Long Time No Post.

Oh crap.. it's been 3 months since my last post..
* We have been very busy moving to a new accommodation (moved 2x since November, 2013)
* Been a Busy father
* My Giant Escape's Front Tyre was busted, replacement is not available
* Too much laziness (to Post or to Ride)... I guess?????
* Busy with Planning & Organizing 2 races...

Anyways, since November 2013, we had organized 2 major races already (which is part of a 3 race series for mountain bikers - I'll gonna post it Later)..
another race is coming up sometime on March. details to be revealed soon..

meanwhile, late this January 2014, I had started another Project....

Lusail Desert Trail: We Ate Dirt for Breakfast Ride

Finally, after few month of hibernation, I finally joined a trail ride and got the chance to use my Giant Escape Custom built Hybrid Single Speed Cyclocross Bike on the trails. (yep, it was already tested to endure the pains of trail riding and having to carry a 100kg biker.. it's me by the way.

18 mountain bikers braving the heat (luckily, no humidity was present at that time of the day)

My trusted Customized Built Giant Escape Hybrid turned into Single Speed Cyclo Cross
On her maiden Long Trail ride in Qatar. (Single Speed 38T x 18T gearing; 700c x 35c Continental Cyclocross tires.)
