Chiang Mai 2010 with the Singapore 5-0 Boys

This is our annual Chiang Mai pilgrimage with the Singapore 5-0 group. 6 straight days of supported mountain biking in some of the best and most rugged trails in Asia, complete with wonderful Thai cuisine and daily massages - how good is this?

Khun Aoa and his crew from Mountain Designs did a commendable job in catering to the diverse needs of the group (khob-kun-krub!).

Kent Ridge MTB Race

I have always approached Kent Ridge, in my view one of the most technical mountain bike trails in Singapore, with some trepidation.

The race in the Cyclone Series 2010 is no different. I participated in the Men's Masters category which meant 3 relatively short but lung busting laps (approximately 4.5 km per lap).

I finished in third place with a timing of 46:47.43, and quite happy with how I had paced myself:

Lap 1 - 16:09.95

Lap 2 - 15:33.96

Lap 3 - 15:03.51
