[Malaysia Scout 100th Anniversary Cycling Event] Malaysia Event Photographer

06 Jun 2009 tecksiong In Event Tags: , ,

I received a phone call from Abang Ho, a voice that I’d not heard for a long long time, inviting me to shoot for this exciting and memorable event.

We started very early in the morning from the HQ of Malaysia Scout located near the Petaling Street, KL. Our destination was Port Dickson, 100KM away and there were 100 participants including the organisers.

There was the official ceremony followed by the big group photo…

The journey started right after that!

There were marshals to take care of the dicipline and safety of the participants along the way. They are all experience cyclist who had done many expiditions like this.

With such a large group of participants, the help from the police was crucial, especially the path to leave the city.

The jouney was getting more and more challenging especially the route which they called “Mantin Challenge”. It’s a route near the small town called “Mantin” which is steep, crooked and stretch for some distance.

There were some minor accidents along the way but they managed to overcome all of them. Everything was under control with the presence of all the experts.

Don’t forget the photographer was one of the expert too… 😀

The spirit was high all the way!

Not a single participant was thinking of giving up.

According to the organiser, the convoy consumed more than 1000 bottles of drinks throughout the expedition. Thanks to the main sponsors of Cool Rhino & 100 Plus.

My great partner, Kok Hong, who had carried me all the way in his 4WD.

Cooling down before continuing the journey….

Approaching the destination…..

Finally, arriving at destination, just in time to enjoy the beautiful sunset.

A happy group photo at the destination with all participants arrived safely! Mission accomplished!!
