Here is a video of the 2011 Tawau

Can't seem to find the Mixed Team Race


No report for KK Race as I was overseas but we managed to win both the Mens' and Mixed Teams.
Third year consecutively for both Teams

In 2011, we also represented the Chinese Chambers at Shanghai. The funny thing was they had a circular race course 3km long.
We only knew when we got there. That trip turned out to be sight-seeing for us.

Here is a blury pic of SDK MP handing us the flag to represent "Malaysia"
Us representing "Malaysia" to race in a circular DB race. What a surreal concept.
