    PBP Qualifications are underway for me here in SE Asia.

    This past weekend I traveled to Malaysia to take part in their "New Season 400" which was a bit of a main road bash around the Durian farms East of KL. Thankfully I like the smell of Durian...

    The course was rolling hills but with over 150 entries there were big groups on the road pushing the pace. It was a nice change from UK riding and good fitness with an avg moving speed of 28 kph. Stopped time was significant with lazy street food, puncture and gas station stops. It was a nice to experience the different culture with stops at particular times of day at a towns mosque for the Muslim riders to do their prayers.
    Wildlife highlights were monkeys on power lines spectating and Komodo Lizards (dragons) as roadkill.

    On Friday I head to Philippines to take part in a double header from Subic in the NW of Luzon. The Saturday they are hosting a BRM 300, followed by a BRM 200 on Sunday. They are a little workman like with it being 150 out and back on Saturday, and then the same route but 100km out and back on Sunday. From a cost perspective though I am happy that I can get two rides done with one trip. With the 4am start I hope to be finished by lunchtime to make my evening flight back to Vietnam.

    Ah, is it a change of organiser?

    Yes, GWR are taking it on for this year and entries are yet to open. Will be able to enter online this year as opposed to by postal entry only

    Well keep in touch. Now that I am based in Vietnam, there is a lot of travel in the region for great riding.

    Striking a little bit of fear into me with that description. It looks like a very challenging route no doubt, at audax pace I am 50-50 if I could complete, if I was to, probably would be without much sleep.
