The race was held around Losail sports complex and it was a better venue than Ceremonial road as it was flat and closed to traffic. I forgot my bike computer and without it I was clueless and just rode by feel and the windy condition was not helping either. When the result came out, I was a little disappointed to see myself ranked 20th of the 22 finishers in the Open Male category even though my average speed was 32.8km/h which was a lot better than my current record for that course segment in Strava which was 30.2km/h. Hani did very well finishing at 14th of 18 finishers in her category considering she only started riding less than a week and rode the bike in running shoes.
|The Malaysian contingent, L-R, Najib, Me, Hani, Lolyta, David and Yusry. Congratulations to all especially Lolyta for finishing 10th in her category in her first ITT.|
