The Malakoff Powerman Asian Duathlon Championships 2012


This was my first event of the kind. This event is the reason I bought myself a road bike.1850 participants from 30 countries joined Powerman this year and we were blessed with cloudy weather. Thank you Allah.

The event was well organised. Food, drink and refreshment were sufficient. Goodies and medal are excellent. Event area, marshal, route were the best. All are for just RM80.

In running, everyone looked the same but with different attire. In cycling, most were riding road bikes, a few were using mountain bikes and surprisingly I came across a folding bike and a full suspension bike!

I finished (5.7km run 32km cycle 5.7km run) at 284 out of 411 in Man Sprint Category with the time of 2:44:22. I look forward to join again next year maybe in full category.
