RAM League Race # 4- Individual Time Trial

5 Jan 2018

Since I don't have a road bike, an ITT is the only opportunity I have to race in the Royal air Maroc Cycling League. The 24km individual time trial was held at my familiar cycling route, so I could easily fit it in my three hours long ride. Almost everyone in my cycling group joining it so why not?

I started the race 30 seconds of my fellow MAD Triathlon buddy, my nemesis on the bike Aaron. I was scared he will overtake me since he is a little stronger on the bike. I gave my all and relieved I made it first to the finish line. I would have liked to start behind him so I could pace my self and chase. The wind on the way back was relentless but everyone has to deal with it, and there's no where to hide in an ITT.

I was pleased with my effort. I finished the race in 43:08 averaging 166 watt for a 6th place in my category. My wife, Hani did great too came in 7th in her category. Everyone in #TeamFarhana did a great job. It was also first bike race for some. We end our day with a nice Nasi Lemak breakfast at Leo's and Nani's residence, thanks guys.

p/s I need to get a road bike, if i want to see my name place higher on the league leaderboard. Also thanks Zul Ihsan and Myra for letting me and the kids sleep over at your place.
