12 Hour Endurance Challenge Peace Ride - Gopeng, Malaysia

The MTB race commenced at 7.30 am with 75 racers. The course was 30 km with 2 big climbs - a 1,200 m hill sending us 80 m up followed by a fast downhill and a sharp 500 m climb sending us 60 m up.

The route had many interesting elements such as a quick sprint through the Gopeng market, zig-zagging between limestone caves and cutting through little villages with friendly locals.

This race was both a physical and a mental challenge. I completed 8 laps with a total of 235 km and 2,100 m climb and finished 7th place. Lars completed 7 laps after the first lap sprint killed him.

Morten completed 6 laps and suffered because of his 1x10 configuration. Mike had to retire after the 5th lap because of a knee injury sustained in a crash. All in all and fantastic outing with superb technical support from Han from Attitude Bikes.

Here's my lap detail:
1st lap - 0737 to 0849 (1:12)
2nd lap - 0849 to 1000 (1:11)
3rd lap - 1000 to 1124 (1:24)
4th lap - 1124 to 1250 (1:26)
Break   - 1250 to 1325 (0:35)
5th lap - 1325 to 1457 (1:32)
6th lap - 1457 to 1626 (1:29)
7th lap - 1626 to 1751 (1:25)
8th lap - 1751 to 1918 (1:27)
