MDHSS #4 Mt Erskine, Penang (The Final Showdown For the Overall Title) featuring Banshee Kiara Rage Results
The track was a heaven.new lines and course...rock,roots and shit happens...it would be fun for me...but im not there....like i said.wont be racing this year....With Ian Chin bags 1st spot again in the Elite and Zel closely at 3rd...Sam Hooi,riding for other Penang's team is 1st in Master and Yamm in 2nd(looks like Master Yamm at last have a worthy opponent) Wan,finally won again after Bukit Pelindung last year in Men Sport....and a comeback by Adam,2nd in expert after been away in the UK for many years
Theres alot of Penang riders there,all tried their best and pushed the limit...and most didnt work out for them,crashed and burned
Next race would more fun for u guys.MX style...biggest camel humps...yup,HUMPS....2 consecutive big hump...tightest S berm....largest GAPS....and u guys will be calculating your G out force...
Its a different approach this time around bout the track in Penang. Usually Penang is well known for tight lines,rock n roots....but its MX style time....The track is made and maintain by people of Penang Downhillers (anyone from Penang is part of the,any teams : Paul said) well said.
add them in ur facebook...
The topic for me now is, Who will conquer it now? As Northern riders known for their technical riding,Central riders of Malaysia always the one that have the big speed and air. Will riders from the north beat them at this kind of track?
After the Kiara Rage,the Expert title is in Ian's iron grip(440 points),but will Zel (164 points)get the final podium and demote Aaron Chan (165 points)to 6th the point diff is jus by 1point!!!!!
In the men's sport,Wan's 5th overall place is his to loose.
And the la' cre'me category,the Master its fight for the 1st place for CK (320 points) and Sam Hooi (294 points). With Yamm (213 points)will b against Tom Jee (203 points) for the 3rd. BUT,if anything goes wrong for either 4 of them,the table will be so freaking different....
We just have to wait...soon enuff...jus a couple of weeks left.the countdown starts NOW.....
KING OF ERSKINE...the title of MDHSS mostly will be decide here. Come down and watch us...A year of bragging rights.A year of pissing of people(in a friendly manner lah).A year after this,the title will be ON again....

Anyway,this time around.Riders from Penang are getting more involved in racing everytime out side of Penang.More teams are blooming and starting to show how good we are in technical riding.We love roots and rocks a lot...Thats how we ride down Penang Hill...Again our team went there.With Omar Team 2sixCCI,Eddy and other new guys under eddy's belt...one of them is Syed Mohd Nasri.Scored 3rd in the first race of his.Training in the new improved Tokun Track paid very well and with Eddy guidance,what could go wrong.Eddy trained him from zero to this.Omar who is still vying for a top spot in expert jus managed to got into 7th place and he still hungry for making it 3rd time in 12months having 1st in three different categories.Its a record to beat for him.Zel 2sixCCI cant make it this time,he went for an abdominal surgery.Should be fit for the next race in Kiara.Zul was there.First time this year.Due to tight schedule,he almost cant fit training time but still didnt dissappoint me.Eddy scores 10th in master...as for Tom Jee,Ian Chin and CK Ooi under Team CCI,scores podium.Ian Chin in expert were 1st.CK Ooi was 1st in Master and Tom Jee lying in 5th....congrats to all and thank you to CCI...see you guys in Bukit Kiara this May...this time,ill be there....hahahaha

Too far too drives,we fly...well,that is what happened.Anyway,we made good result at the 1st time racing in 2010.Zel was on podium in expert with 5th placed and just 1second seperated the top 5.But unlucky for Omar,he was shift to expert category .He had won the Bc race in master,then he upgrade himself to open in Penang dh Race and still wins.The organiser now want to see how would he fare in Expert and he finished 9th (he would got podium in Open)...What a short reign at the top.But still Omar took it a challenge.He even say,he would revenge it on the next series in BC race coming this March.Tom Jee and Ian Chin was there too.All runs under CCi flag.

Okey, here some review and tech info from us about Penang #3 DH trail. This hard pack trail is about 1.7km long and 90% natural. Fast, rocky and full of roots is the best description of the course as it descends down to the Youth Park. The descending is just nice to gain some speed. High Roller tyres can smokes this trail easily but if rain, Minion is recommended. There is no mud on the rainy day, so you don’t really need mud tyres, you just pay extra careful on crossing the roots and rocks. The trail is wide and you can choose your own line. We have seen Adam riding on this trail a few years ago with his semi slicks tyres... wuhuhu, isn’t it Adam? Hard tail is also fun to ride it here. The average time on this course from the last race is about 4:00 and the champion timing is 3:12 by Adam.
Usually Penang riders will practice or riding on this trail between 11am to 3pm. Morning?? Oohoho don’t mess up with hikers. Evening ride also can’t. Sadly we need to push up bike all the way to the top. But dont worry, its not as bad as you think, trust me. Once you riding down the trail, all the lactic will be substitute by adrenaline... hahaha. If you are getting bored with biking in your own area come here for the weekend. You also can ride on this trail starting from the Penang Hill. Guys, finally we shall race again on this course. The race is on!!! Confirmed date on 20th December 2009. Please plan properly your holidays and make Penang as your destination for this coming December. Let’s rock the trail guys..!!

Last Sunday was the the day the new Tokun Track finishes.A whole new track.Almost 20 riders waa there,including the PGDH and us.All effort n credit is given to Mie Tokun and his team.A big hand for them...A spectator friendly track.Its along a jeep tar track where hikers climb.So,expect big crowd during races.Uplift is provided by the locals.Jus ask the coffee shop and they will hook you up with a motorbike uplift...Hehehe...should be great right.These boys are also the heart n soul of the track behind Mie Tokun effort and not to left Eddie,the official track tester.Try to follow his wheel for once.The track is long.single track.technical n gnarly with big jump n drops.
More 2km down i believed n the track and uplift only available from 11am to 4pm daily.Its legal and supported by the local authority.Theres pic of the track in our galley.Feast your eyes...Penang again came up with a gnarly,natural and wicked line...thank you Mie Tokun,Eddie and the boys.You guys are in our hall of fame...
Our team is currently supported by CYCLON CYCLES INDUSTRIES SDN BHD ( CCI )
