you know how politics destroys sports. I've seen em destroy a lot of careers...but in this case the coach did a good thing. Humbled himself and took back in the rider. These RP MTB XC Team trains in AFP - Giant. I've seen them whizz by me 6 times while I only made a single pass towards Giant. Agree, we need leaders whose prime purpose is to lead and not indulge itself in bootlicking/politicking. Nice to know that they're transferring to Danao for training I sure wont look like a wimp when these riders pass by. ;D ;D Sorry for bibit crashing during the race. Strong female contender there

SUZHOU, China, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- The 13th Asian Mountain Bike Championships lowered its curtain here on Sunday with Japanese taking the last two gold medals.
Mio Suemasa proved herself as the best sprinter of Asian MTB after taking the women's elite downhill in two minutes and 11.439 in the scorching sun.
"The weather is really hot. I started a little bit slowly today, but I maintained my speed during the last 200 meters," said the Asian champion.
The hot and humid weather became the biggest challenge for all cyclists. In the first day of the event, five women cyclists quit the women's elite cross-country, and Malaysian cyclist Juss Junaidan was sent to hospital.
Sattayanun Abdulkaree of Thailand won the silver in 2:12.761, beating her teammate Ausanee Pradupyard to the third place in 2:16.146.

stealthwanderer: Ayan yung matagal ko na gusto itanong: 1 Hour ride, mabasa ng ulan o' mabasa ng pawis sa loob ng kapote. Baka kasi ako lang nageenjoy sa ulan kasi may paliguan pagdating sa trabaho, hahah.

anthrax76: sa ngayon, mag jacket lang ako kapag umuulan at mahangin. kasi masakit sa balat ang matulin na ulan tsaka malakas makababa ng core temperature ang wind chill.
Aug 10, 2019 22:17:32 GMT 8
anthrax76: pero kung normal na ulan, 'di naman mahangin, hanggang mabasa na lang ako ng ulan okey lang. although i minimize kung gano katagal ako exposed. anything more than an hour, medyo delikado.

anthrax76: yung poncho, ginagamit ko lang sa climb or kapag naglalakad. feeling ko saranggola ako kapag naka bike eh, ha ha.

anthrax76: ang weird kagabi, padyak ako pero kahit may headwind at crosswind, swabe lang. parang tailwind yung pakiramdam.
Aug 24, 2019 4:32:23 GMT 8
lefty: Na experience nyo na sir yung pagbaba mo ng mabilis sa tulay biglang may malakas na crosswind tapos umangat yung front wheel? Nangyari na sa kin once pagbaba ko ng Southpeak. Mga March yun last year, mahangin talaga around that time last year.
Aug 24, 2019 8:50:45 GMT 8
lefty: Umangat ng konti na parang tinulak ng konti pa-side. Buti na control ko at di ako sumemplang. Nangyayari ba talaga ito normally? First time ko naka-experience nun.
Aug 24, 2019 8:56:30 GMT 8
anthrax76: hmm...never pa naman umangat yung harap na gulong ko. i get pushed downwind pero never pa umangat.
