Hi Guys! Im not good at words also but this is how i witnessed it. The whole story goes like this. Boy Seacid asked me to go with him and Yukon to witness the handing of the bike to Alibangbang, didnt know there were some adjustment a or tweaking to be done. Dragunov( Pete) was so busy sourcing out some parts to finish the bike, Even took out the chain from his bike. The usual adjustments and the bike was done. Lito the partner of Alibangbang, made him run from Cogeo to UP reasoning it's for training and they will share the bike. The guy even race earlier and arrived wearing crocs for running. Halimaw talaga. I asked him about the 24hr race and he said things like it could have been a nice race or him getting a nice standing, about the 12 hr race if he's joining too?
ME: Do you have a helmet? I advocate safe cyling.
Alibang2: I will borrow sir.
Me: Ok! use this, it's yours, that's from bm5er.
Alibang2: (wondering) are you sure sir?
Me and everyone: Yeah its yours!
Me: Do you have a bike for the race?
Alibang2: I will borrow sir.
Pete and everyone: Here, It's yours.
Alibang2: Dont worry sir, i'll take care of the bike and return it soon.
Everyone: NO!!! its yours.
Alibang2: Are you kidding me? Binibiro nyo ba ako?
Everyone: No it's yours! and then Tofi started explaining everything to him.
The guy was in tears and the handing of the bike was just in time coz he is facing so many difficulties in life at this point of his time. You all made this guy look at the bright side.
We should thank Lito the partner of alibang2 for being gracious to him, he shared his 2nd prize winnings to alibang2 despite not getting anything from us. He was even returning the sponsored registration fee for both of them. Lito could've bag the 1st place if not for his fully rigid bike which is so hard to use during the night run. Thanks to all who made this happen.
1. All P M T B pitching in to let a brother biker get his dream bike 2. Pete removing his chain from his bike to give to EA 3. Edgar making his drama script happen in giving EA the helmet and the bike...idol!
aint you all proud to be P M T B !

EcoRescue/Firefly Brigade The fireflies have fled the city because they couldn't stand its dirty air. All of us cyclists, pedestrians, commuters, even those who ride cars who live, work and raise families in the city may suffer the same fate. We also risk disappearing like the fireflies." Why resign ourselves to this fate? We have a choice. We can fight for clean air and bring the fireflies back.
Whew! I was reading the narratives when my sight became blurry due to tears. Money can't buy those smiles from him. Let the true spirit of Christmas remain in our hearts! Congrats guys! God bless! Mabuhay PinoyMTBiker!
Until mountain biking came along, the bike scene was ruled by a small elite cadre of people who seemed allergic to enthusiasm. ~Jacquie Phelan
