Photographer's Note

Hi guys, sorry of been not posting any shots recently.

So, I'm back with this event which was held on the 17th and 18th of September. It's the 2005 Penang International Mountain Bike Challenge, which had its races at the Penang Youth Park.

This year theme is 2005 MTB Downhill Challenge and it have attracted participants from all across the national and the world.

Of all events that was held for the past two days, this Downhill chanllenge is the most gruelling and exciting of all. Riding form the top of the hill and down to the ground below while having two obstacle (a rock and a tree), it was a dangerous fest. Some participants pulled-out upon arriving at the point, while others, especially one brave young guy (not this photographed guy), whom was unable to controlled his bike and fall half way through the steep. With spectators cheering, this have prompted this young guy to finish his race with the last point, the jumping across from a bridge. Unfortunately, he got a great fall and was attended to the ER instead.

While looking at this young racer, which was not properly equiped with protection gears, I asked myself that why is the racing officials do allow this racers to participate in such extreme sport without this protection.

Okay, back to this shot. I was able to find a good spot and "conquered" it throughtout the event to have all the racers captured.
