28 December 2011, KUALA LUMPUR - Asia finally has a Pro Continental team with China-registered and Hong Kong-based Champion System Pro Cycling Team. They are considered for a wild card at the Giro d’Italia but for now they’re guaranteed to ride Le Tour de Langkawi with their new status from February 24 to March 4. The recruitment of Malaysian up and coming stars Anuar Manan, previously with Terengganu Pro Asia, and Mohd Adiq Husainie Othman, transferred from Australian outfit Drapac, will make Champion System a very popular team on the road.

“We always love to see Anuar in contention for winning sprints and Adiq is possibly Malaysia’s next big thing in cycling”, commented Le Tour de Langkawi chief operating officer Emir Abdul Jalal. “Our event will be the first step for them to conquer the world this year.”

“After so many years riding for continental Asian teams, it’s the right time for me to step up and join the Pro Continental level”, said Anuar who rode for Letua, Azad University, Geumsan Ginseng and Terengganu Pro Asia successively. “I’ve opted for Champion System because it’s going to be a very good team and they’ll give me opportunities to race in Europe and in the US as well. I’m attracted by Europe even more than the US because this is only one step for me. I hope it’ll lead me to a Pro Team after one year or two.”

“I’m very proud to be already able to ride at Pro Continental level at the age of only 21”, added Adiq. “I’m happy with that. It’s a great experience. This will be my third time riding LTdL. In my first participation in 2010, I managed to score KOM points and help my team-mate [Peter McDonald] fight for podium and KOM jersey. In 2011, I made some top 10 at stages. I hope I can do better in 2012. With the new team, my motivation is increased.”

Before riding LTdL with stage finishes in their respective home towns of Cukai and Kuala Terengganu, Adiq and Anuar will get to know their new team-mates at a gathering in Hong Kong, the team presentation in Beijing and a training camp in Hainan in January. “I’m more of a road rider now but I’ll ride the points race at the track world cup in Beijing to give a contribution to my country and qualify for the world championship in Melbourne in April”, Adiq said. Both riders from Champion System are also in contention for representing Malaysia at the London Olympics.

“For the coming Le Tour de Langkawi, I don’t want to win only one stage”, said Anuar who became the first Malaysian to do so in Port-Dickson in 2010. “I want to win more than one and get the blue jersey back. I believe that I’ll have the right team around me to achieve that, with riders like Aaron Kemps and Jaan Kirsipuu who have a great experience in leading out sprinters.”

“We will come to LTdL with a lot of ambition”, confirmed directeur sportif Ed Beamon. “It looks to be a very good field, and of course there will be some pressure on us as an Asian team, but I think we’ll be up for the task. Chris Butler will be anxious to test his legs on Genting for sure and we’ll try very hard to get Anuar a stage win (or two). I think we are bringing a pretty fast team with Kirsipuu, Kemps and Manan, but I’d love to see Adiq have a shot from a small group one day. Craig Lewis’ experience will be a big help and I’m hoping he and Adiq will find some quick chemistry and that will really be a good motivator.”

LTdL 2012 is organised by the National Sports Council as a mark of continuity to the organisation of the Ministry of Youth and Sports in 2010 and 2011 in collaboration with the Malaysian National Cycling Federation. The race maintains a 2.HC (Hors Classe) status and is recognised and sanctioned by the UCI and UCI Asia Tour. LTdL 2012 is expected to feature 22 professional teams.

The 10 day race begins on February 24 with Individual time trial along a 20.3 km course in Putrajaya to kick off the race; followed by stage 2 Putrajaya - Melaka (151.0km); Stage 3 Ayer Keroh - Parit Sulong (187.6km); Batu Pahat - Muar (169.4km); Ayer Keroh - Pandan Indah (187.2km); Proton Shah Alam - Genting Highlands (108km); Bentong - Kuantan (215.8km); Pekan - Chukai (100.8km); Kemasik - Kuala Terengganu (169.4km) dan Tasik Kenyir - Kuala Terengganu (116.6km).

27 December 2011, KUALA LUMPUR: The Folding Bike Jamboree 2012 is set to be held on January 8 (8am-1pm) at the Sepang International Karting Circuit.

The long awaited event is set to give the growing number of folding bicycle enthusiasts not just another meet to look forward to but to also address the need to promote environmentally friendly modes of transport in which each folding bike owner can have a significant role to play.

"We are working closely with the relevant stakeholders to help promote the go green message while everyone has fun and even bring home some prizes," said co-organiser Well Tan of Folding Bike Trading Sdn Bhd.

The event will feature fun races such as a 100m race for kids divided into two categories: under-8 years old and 9 to 12 years. Participants will also have a chance to see how fast they can go on their folding bikes in an open race against the clock where they will be timed against the clock in a 100m dash.

"Also there will be a special competition to see who can fold and unfold their bikes the fastest," said Well.

The main events will be eight-lap races around the 1.1km circuit for women, while the men will compete over 10 laps.

The event is supported by the Sepang International Circuit (SIC), Malaysian National Cycling Federation (MNCF), 100Plus, Folding Bike Trading Sdn Bhd and Bike Tech Subang Sdn Bhd, while in it is done in tandem with Syarikat Prasarana Negara Berhad (Prasarana) to promote the use of folding bicycles in combination with public trasnport systems like the LRT and KL Monorail to commute, as part of an ongoing go green campaign.

MNCF deputy president Datuk Naim Mohamad, also chairs the federation's Cycling For All committee, which is also aiming to promote cycling as a way of life and a healthy, economical form of daily transport.

"By gathering as many folding bike enthusiasts in one event, we will be able to not only gain their attention towards the roles we all have to play in promoting environmentally friendly modes of transport," Datuk Naim said.

"For our federation, although we have devoted the bulk of our efforts and resources on developing the competitive side of cycling, projects such as these are also very important to us. In fact, as the body that looks after cycling in the country, the more people we see out on the roads on bicycles, the better for us as it shows that cycling is not just booming as a sport, but also as an activity and a way of life," he added.

Registration for the event is open with more information available on the facebook page :

23 December 2011, KUALA LUMPUR - The US-registered Pro Continental team UnitedHealthcare will make their second appearance at Le Tour de Langkawi from February 24 to March 4.

The Malaysian event marked their debut in the second division of world cycling and it was a successful one. “We had a strong showing with a stage win and several podiums”, said team manager Mike Tamayo. German sprinter Robert Forster scored the first success for his new outfit after spending eight seasons on the European top level circuit. With Gerolsteiner and Milram, he rode no less than thirteen Grand Tours: eight Giro d’Italia with a stage win in 2007, three Tour de France and two Vuelta a Espana.

“It was one of the highlights of the past edition of Le Tour de Langkawi when Forster won stage 8 in Jasin”, commented the chief operating officer Emir Abdul Jalal. “A sprinter with prestigious wins under his belt, he showed the young guns Andrea Guardini and Marcel Kittel that he was still one of the fastest cyclists in the world, so we’re delighted to welcome him and his team back. I’m sure that after their first experience in Malaysia, they’ll be even stronger this time around.”

Tamayo confirmed their increased ambitions. “Team UnitedHealthcare is honored and very motivated about the 2012 Le Tour de Langkawi”, he said. “We are aware of the growth of the race and cycling in Malaysia but we plan on bigger success at the 2012 edition of the race.”

They have put a stronger team at the service of Forster with the expertise of the Australian trio of lead out men Karl Menzies and the Clarke brothers who are no strangers to Le Tour de Langkawi after having ridden the race with different teams in the past.

At the 2011 Le Tour de Langkawi, Team UnitedHealthcare got to know the famous Belgian directeur sportif Hendrik Redant who was the radio Tour officer and they hired him for what is his real job, as they intend to improve their presence on the European scene as well.

LTdL 2012 is organised by the National Sports Council as a mark of continuity to the organisation of the Ministry of Youth and Sports in 2010 and 2011 in collaboration with the Malaysian National Cycling Federation. The race maintains a 2.HC (Hors Classe) status and is recognised and sanctioned by the UCI and UCI Asia Tour. LTdL 2012 is expected to feature 22 professional teams.

20 December 2011, KUALA LUMPUR - In the final year of his successful career, Alexandre Vinokourov will return to the race where it all started for him fifteen years ago: Le Tour de Langkawi. The Kazakh super star will lead the Astana Pro Team in the Malaysian UCI 2.HC event from February 24 to March 4.

“I’ve always wanted to do this race again but it was never on my team’s calendar or appropriate for my race schedule”, said Vinokourov who took part in the second edition of Le Tour de Langkawi in 1997. A member of the Kazakh national team, he was scouted by Gilles Mas who directed the Casino team in Malaysia and realized his exceptional strength even though he was sick and didn’t deliver results like his team-mate and compatriot Andrey Mizourov who won the inaugural time trial in Kota Kinabalu. It was the only trip up to date of LTdL to East Malaysia on the Borneo island.

After the 1997 Le Tour de Langkawi, Vinokourov joined Mas’ French amateur club EC Saint-Etienne and signed as a neo-pro for Casino. “Le Tour de Langkawi has a special place in my heart and I always knew that it is a very well organised race”, the Kazakh said.

“It’s a great honour for us to welcome Vinokourov back to Malaysia”, commented Le Tour de Langkawi COO Emir Abdul Jalal. “We wish him to come as a rider, team captain and Member of Parliament.” Vinokourov will be running for parliamentary election in Kazakhstan in January. The close political ties between Kazakhstan and Malaysia and the organisation of the Asian championship in Kuala Lumpur on February 15 and 17 also favour Astana’s participation to LTdL.

Therefore, their roster will be fully Kazakh and they have planned one week of training on the paradisiacal island of Langkawi in the lead up to LTdL. Vinokourov will be accompanied by the team’s sprinter Assan Bazayev, Alexandre Dyachenko who finished ninth at the 2011 world championship for time trial and might be a favourite for the 20km inaugural stage against the clock in Malaysia’s governmental town of Putrajaya, Dimitriy Gruzdev who wore the best Asian blue jersey for several days at the 2009 LTdL, double Tour of Hainan winner (2010, 2011) Valentin Iglinskiy, and Andrey Zeits who came second at the 2011 Tour of Turkey.

“It’s a really nice team that Astana is sending to Malaysia” Emir Abdul Jalal said. “Their presence as the only Pro Team from Asia gives credit to Le Tour de Langkawi that has been the highest ranked bike race in Asia for many years.” Vinokourov is set to retire from pro racing at the age of 39 after the London Olympics.

LTdL 2012 is organised by the National Sports Council as a mark of continuity to the organisation of the Ministry of Youth and Sports in 2010 and 2011 in collaboration with the Malaysian National Cycling Federation. The race maintains a 2.HC (Hors Classe) status and is recognised and sanctioned by the UCI and UCI Asia Tour. LTdL 2012 is expected to feature 22 professional teams.

The 10 day race begins on February 24 with Individual time trial along a 20.3 km course in Putrajaya to kick off the race; followed by stage 2 Putrajaya - Melaka (151.0km); Stage 3 Ayer Keroh - Parit Sulong (187.6km); Batu Pahat - Muar (169.4km); Ayer Keroh - Pandan Indah (187.2km); Proton Shah Alam - Genting Highlands (108km); Bentong - Kuantan (215.8km); Pekan - Chukai (100.8km); Kemasik - Kuala Terengganu (169.4km) dan Tasik Kenyir - Kuala Terengganu (116.6km).

Misi yang dinamakan 'Sailing the Sand of Sahara' dijangka bermula pada 21 Mac hingga 24 April 2012, iaitu yang akan memakan masa selama 35 hari bermula dari Empangan Mohamed Sedky Sleman, di Aswan dan menamatkan larian di laluan Port Said Rafaj, Mesir. Sebelum ini, Suwaibah telah menetapkan tarikh 11.11.11 untuk melunaskan hasratnya mencipta nama sebagai wanita pertama di dunia menawan Gurun Sahara namun atas sebab-sebab yang tidak dapat dielakkan, hajat itu tertangguh dan akan dilaksanakan pada tahun hadapan.

Bersempena pelancaran Dinar Emas Larian Sahara 2012, Koperasi Anggota Pranita Angkatan Tentera Malaysia Berhad (COPRANITA) selaku penganjur acara itu akan melancarkan dinar emas yang mengandungi tulisan 'Larian Sahara oleh Suwaibah' dan akan disempurnakan oleh bekas Perdana Menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Turut hadir Pengerusi larian itu, Sheikh Ahmad Dasuki Sheikh Mohamad.

Bukan calang-calang wanita, Suwaibah, 38, anak kelahiran Tanah Merah, Kelantan pernah melakar sejarah sebagai wanita pertama yang berjaya mendaki Menara Kuala Lumpur pada tahun 1998, malah dia merupakan pemegang rekod sebagai wanita terpantas mendaki Batu Caves pada tahun 2000 hingga 2002 yang belum digugat sesiapa sehingga ke hari ini. Bukan itu sahaja, pada tahun 2004, dia membuat larian amal berlari sejauh 2,004 kilometer (km) selama 47 hari mengelilingi Semenanjung Malaysia dan berjaya mengumpul RM2 juta untuk mengisi tabung Majlis Kanser Nasional.

Pemegang Ijazah Sarjana Muda Sains Sukan dari Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) itu pernah mewakili negara ke pertandingan mendaki Bangunan Empire States, New York dan meraih tempat ke-12 selain pernah berlari di Itali, Indonesia dan Singapura.

Anak kedua daripada lapan beradik kini sedang sibuk mempersiapkan diri bagi merealisasikan hasratnya menawan Gurun Sahara dengan membuat larian solo sejauh 1,111 kilometer (km) merentas gurun itu dengan bantuan seorang jurulatih Mejar Azan selain mendapat bantuan kemudahan latihan daripada Majlis Sukan Negara (MSN) serta pemantauan dari segi kesihatan dan kecergasan daripada Institut Sukan Negara (ISN).

Larian yang dijangka mengambil masa 35 hari itu akan bermula dari Aswan ke Luxor sejauh 179 kilometer, Luxor-Sohag- Assyut (221 kilometer), Assyut-Al-Minya-Giza- Kaherah (318 kilometer) dan Kaherah ke Suez sejauh 125 kilometer. Seterusnya laluan mencabar menanti Suwaibah dari Suez ke Port Said sejauh 146 kilometer sebelum menamatkan misinya di laluan Port Said Rafaj sejauh 122 kilometer.

11 December 2011, JEMPOL - The Flying Sikh wrapped up the fourth and final round of the Malaysian Rally 2011 in Jempol, Negeri Sembilan today to finish unbeaten over two days of rallying which in the end also gave him the overall crown too.

His two victories in Jempol over the weekend saw him collect a total of 44 points over the four roundsof competition held in Johor Baharu in April; Kangar in July; Malacca in November and then Negeri Sembilan with defending champion Rafiq Udhaya finishing second on a total of 42 points.

Karamjit who drives under the GSR Pennzoil bannercame to Jempol trailing Rafiq by two points and deep inside knows what needed to be done.

Obviously he responded to the occasion and conquered the opening day on Saturday in the 63.5km stage in his Mitsubishi Lancer. And again he was in fiery form yesterday, sweeping past all and sundry in the 46km stage to finish unbeaten again.

All in all Karamjit and his Indian co-driver Viviek Ponnusamy clocked a total time of 1 hr 36min 13.2secs while Rafiq and his partner Sean Gregory in a Subaru Impreza, who finished second on both days, returned a total time of 1hr 42mins 25.5secs.

Third overall is Mike and Manuthi Arokiasamy in a Proton Satria in a time of 1 hr 46 mins 09.5secs.

"It has been a long hard season. I am happy that I have picked up title No 12 but it would not have been possible without the help of my teamates support.

"It was a team effort and I am looking forward to title No 13 next year. I believe I still have a few more years lef t of rallying in me," said the 48-year old Karamjit.

For Rafiq, losing the crown doesn't mean he is a loser either.

"I lost to a better driver. Simple as that. Karamjit is an extraordinary rally driver and to lose to him is no shame at all. Hopefully next year we will try to win the crown again." he added.
And the organiser of the Malaysian Rally, Wheel Sport Management, has annnounced that
the 2012 season will have five rounds instead of the present four, a development which has earned the praise of the competitors.

Five is just ideal. Four is a bit too little is the response from those who are taking part.

10 December 2011, JEMPOL - Karamjit Singh and his Mistsubishi Evo was just unstoppable as he charged to victory in the opening day of the fourth and final round of the Malaysian Rally 2011 in Jempol on Saturday.

Together his co-driver Vivek Ponnusamy, they completed the 63.5km stretch of the race in a total time of 52min 22.5sec, leaving the defending champion Rafiq Udhaya and his Subaru Impreza trailing in his wake and a good five minutes behind.

Karamjit is looking forward to the overall title and only Rafiq is standing in his way but after the opening round victory, the Flying Sikh, as he is more popularly known, has taken a step closer to the crown.

As things stand before the start of Saturday's race, Rafiq has a total of 30 points while Karamjit has 28 and Karamjit knows that unless he beats the leader, the title won't be in his possession.

"Round one is completed and eveything went well. I got a good five minutes lead going into Sunday's race and I know if I stay out of trouble tomorrow, I am confident I should be able to win the overall title.

"But you never know. The weather is unpredictable and the condition varies. Today was fine but once it rains the scenarios could change. The track becomes soft and slippery and it would put a real strain on the engine," said Karamjit who has won the overall title a total of eleven times so far.

No 12 beckons and Rafiq knows he needs something spectacular on Sunday to keep Karamjit at bay.

"Karamjit drove flat out today and I expected that. He needs to beat me to win the title and if he does so he deserves it because he is such a talented driver," said Rafiq.

Rafiq is lying second on a total time of 57min 24.9secs while Mike Arokiasamy in a Proton Satria is third on a total of 58min 55.2secs.

A total of 25 cars were on the starting grid.


Dec 9, 2011


9 December 2011, JEMPOL - Defending champion Rafiq Udhaya and challenger Karamjit Singh are both headed for a nail biting finish over the weekend as the Malaysian Rally 2011 enters it's decisive race in Jempol, Negeri Sembilan.

As things stand, Rafiq and his Subaru Impreza are the current overall leader on 30 points after three rounds of races, Johor Baru, Kangar and Malacca but 11-time winner Karamjit Singh is lying second on 28, a mere two-point difference as they both square off in the fourth and final round.

The rest of the field gathered in Jempol today, totalling 25 all in all, knows they are not going to be able to catch up with the two leaders, given the gap in the points accumalated so far.

Australia's Cody Crocker, a former Asia Pacific Rally Championship winner could have been in contention with the 16 points he has after his performances in Johor Baru and Kangar in the opening two rounds but sponsorship issue has forced him out of the race in Malacca and he is not coming to Jempol either.

Then there is the Japanese combination of Aji Kim and Noriko Takeshita in their Proton Satria Neo who are lying third alongside the young Malaysian pair of Kenneth Koh and Nicole Gill, on 10 points each.

Count them out too because whatever happens, Aji or Kenneth are not going to overhaul the two pace setters, given that there are only a total of 16 points at stake in Jempol.

So the stage is set for a Rafiq versus Karamjit duel and revenge is certainly on their minds.

Rafiq and his co-driver Sean Gregory in their Subaru Impreza, wants to prove that they can get the better of Karamjit and consolidate their reputation as a worthy overall champion.

Karamjit in his Pennzoil-backed Mitsubishi Lancer on the other hand, wants title No 12 to shore up his reputation as the man to beat in Malaysian rallying.

But the one factor that both man has no control over and which could play an important role in deciding which way the title is headed for, is the weather.

The current wet spell is playing on the minds of both competitors and given the experience they endured last year at the same venue, they know that once the skies open up, things are no longer the same.

"I know the conditions are going to be treacherous once it rains. I remember last year we were caught in some very slippery conditions when it started raining.

"The weather man are predicting rain again this time. So we have to be well prepared. I am excited over the prospect of challenging Karamjit for the title.

"He is a good driver and it's obvious that I have to beat him if I want to retain my title," said Rafiq.

9 December 2011, KUALA LUMPUR - TERENGGANU Pro-Asia Cycling Team (TSG) is planning their gameplay carefully to ensure their riders who will compete at Le Tour de Langkawi 2012 (LTdL) are ready to meet their target of winning stages and to improve their overall team classification.

With daily schedule packed for training and participation in several national championships, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of TSG, Mohd Sophian Abu Bakar said, the management is concentrating on developing the fitness of their riders before the final confirmation in January next year. Among the local tournament the team will compete in December is the National GP in Johor and Kuala Lumpur as well as Pesta Pulau Pinang.

"Upon entering the new year, our riders will enter training camp, we still yet to confirm the location but we won’t rule out the possibility of training in Chiang Mai, Thailand, like last year.“

"What is important now is to ensure that the level of fitness of our riders are in excellent shape before the start of LTdL, from 24 February to 4 March," said Mohd Sophian. According to him, after Hariff Salleh and Anuar Manan missed out several opportunities to win a stage in the 16th edition, TSG hope that it can be fulfilled at LTdL 2012.

Currently, TSG still maintain total 14 riders in the team but did not rule out the possibility of changes to take on new riders when the existing contract ends in December 2011. Mohd Sophian said TSG management also hopes to maintain their four foreign riders, including Japanese veteran, Shinichi Fukushma in the new season.

"It's too early to list the name of the riders as we are due to sign new contracts with the riders when the existing contract ends, but we hope to attract some new local and foreign riders to strengthen the team, especially in the climbs which was still our team’s weakness," he said.

In the 2011 edition, Mat Saufi Mat Senan was the best rider for the team where he ranked 31st overall, only 6 minutes 28 seconds behind yellow jersey winner from Androni team, Jonathan Monsalve. Shahrul Mat Amin placed 37th overall, while in the overall team classification, TSG ranked eighth, clocking in 21 minutes 37 seconds behind overall winner, Tabriz Petrochemical from Iran.

"TSG is not aiming too high, but expects their riders including sprinter, Hariff Salleh who ranked 8th in the points classification in the last edition can make a surprise stage win and improve his overall position.“ he added.

"With only one difficult climb up Genting Highlands next year, TSG will get the opportunity to realize their stage victory in eight other stages. It is too early for us to set the strategy for the race at this time," said Mohd Sophian again.

LTdL 2012 is organised by the National Sports Council as a mark of continuity to the organisation of the Ministry of Youth and Sports in 2010 and 2011 in collaboration with the Malaysian National Cycling Federation. The race maintains a 2.HC (Hors Classe) status and is recognised and sanctioned by the UCI and UCI Asia Tour.

23 October 2011, MELAKA - Karamjit Singh has put himself right in the hunt for the overall title in the Malaysian Rally Championship 2011.

A fine performance by the 48-year old Karamjit over the weekend at Round 3 of the championship in Tanjong Bidara, Melaka has put him within reach of the overall crown.

It is now only a two point gap separating him and the leader Muhamma Rafiq Udhaya as they head for the fourth and final showdown in two months time.

Karamjit for all his effort in Melaka over the weekend where he won on both days has 28 points now and Muhammad Rafiq finishing second best to Karamjit on both days, is still the overall leader on 30 points.

But for now Karamjit and co-driver Vivek Ponnusamy are the undisputed winner taking their Mitsubishi Lancer past everyone with ease. Even Muhammad Rafiq and his Subaru Impreza alongside Sean Gregory, who finished second,just could not handle the pace.

Karamjit's total winning time for the round was 1hr:53:19.7sec for the entire 125km race with Muhammad Rafiq coming in second on 2hrs: 06:53.9secs, a good 13 minutes behind.

Third overall was the young driver Kenneth Koh and Nicole Gill in their Proton Satria in 2hrs: 19:28.3secs.

The day had started brilliantly for Karamjit, just like the opening day on Saturday where he was in terrific form and just like Saturday, he was in total control from the start to the end.

"That's they joy of rallying. When everything goes your way and the car respond to your every touch, you know you are in for a comfortable drive. I am happy that I have won both rounds here in Malacca which has kept me in the hunt for the overall title.

"I have won the overall title a total of eleven times and I want to make it a dozen," said Karamjit.

A total of 25 cars took part in the rally and for the first time in the championship two environment friendly fueled cars took part in the race, a Daihatsu Tomaso and a Perodua Kelisa.


22 October 2011, MELAKA - Karamjit Singh was in no mood to be beaten as he steered his Mitsubishi Lancer to victory in the opening day of Round 3 of the Malaysian Rally Championship in Tanjung Bidara, Melaka yesterday.

The 48-year old Karamjit, was just too fast and too good for the 24-competitor field to finish Day one which cover a total distance of 72 kilometres, to take the winner's flag in style.

In fact he was brilliant and over the entire seven stages of the race which included a special stage of 2.41km held at the Masjid Tanah Industrial Estate, he never had any trouble at all to return a total time of 1 hr 02:28.8secs which is a good seven minute lead over the second placed Muhammad Rafiq Udhaya and his co-driver Sean Gregory.

There is another six stages to come on Day 2 on Sunday to complete the Melaka leg but on the strength of his performance on the opening day, Karamjit and his co-driver Vivek Ponnusamy, are headed for a brilliant finish to the round.

The pair, who are driving under the GSR Pennzoil banner are lying third overall behind leader and defending overall champion Muhammad Rafiq with a six-point gap but things could change when it's all over.

For now Muhammad Rafiq in his Subaru Impreza are still the overall leader but only just because their second placed finishing yesterday was just about enough to keep them in front.

Muhammad Rafiq and co-driver Sean Gregory clocked a total of 1hr: 10:03.1secs with third placed Mike and Maruthi Arokiasamy in a Proton Satria in 1hr 15:03.0secs.

It was clear Muhammad Rafiq was just contented to stay in the hunt and not try anything spectacular simply because he knows his chances are still wide open.

"It was a comfortable drive for me today. Even though the track conditions changes from stage to stage, I was in control of the situation. Another good race tomorrow and another good round in the final race next month and I could still end up champion," said Karamjit.


21 October 2011, MELAKA - Historical Melaka, which has also declared itself to be an environmentally friendly or commonly known these days as a ‘Green’ state, will create more content for its history books when two bio-fuel rally cars are flagged off at this weekend’s Malaysian Rally Championship (MRC) series which moves into its third round for the 2011 season.

Recently formed 1 Malaysia Wheelspin Green Motorsports team has, via a joint venture with existing teams, two cars which will be run on Bio-Diesel and Bio-Ethanol respectively. The first is a specially modified Proton Satria Gtdi rally car driven by Malaysia’s rally queen Gina Finanza of Ultra Racing motorsports and the other; a Bio-Ethanol powered Perodua Kelisa RS prepared by the students of Institute Kemahiran Belia Negara (IKBN) under the guidance of former Junior rally champion Mohd. Shazly Farith Ilias who manages the IKBN Motorsports Team.

1 Malaysia Wheelspin Green Motorsports team is the brainchild of former rally driver and current grassroots motorsports event organiser Jagjeet Singh and is fast gaining support from various parties who see a need for Bio-Fuel powered cars in the future of motorsports in Malaysia as it means emitting less harmful gasses into the environment. “Bio-Fuel powered motorsport cars have been a regular sight in events around Europe for many years now and its time we do the same in Malaysia. What started as an uphill task for me has now become a reality thanks to supportive drivers, teams and the Malaysian motorsport fraternity in general” Said Jagjeet, adding “I chose the MRC to debut our bio-fueled cars because it was the first championship to include an alternative fuel category five years ago but sadly nobody competed in such cars. Now that I’ve brought two cars and possibly more for the 2012 season, hopefully the organizers will reintroduce the category to motivate more such entries”.


20 October 2011, MELAKA - Muhammad Rafiq Udhaya is ready to consolidate his grip on the Malaysian Rally Championship crown as he prepares for the third leg of the championship in Tanjung Bidara Malacca over the weekend.

He is the overall leader after two rounds of the championship-in Kangar and Johor Baru- with a total of 18 points and another encouraging round in Malacca would give him a serious shot at the overall title by the time the fourth and final round comes along next month.

In any case Muhammad Rariq and his co-driver Sean Gregory in their Subaru Impreza are the defending overall champion and in his own words, he is ready to defend his title.

But he admits he has got a fight on his hands. Karamjit Singh, the nine-time overall champion is still very much in the hunt even though he is on 12 points and lying third overall.

Karamjit will be behind the wheels of a Mitsubishi Lancer together with Indian driver Vivek Ponnusamy and their sterling performance in the second round in Kangar four months ago where they finished second, will give them the lift they need to challenge Muhammad Rafiq and company.

"I am still in the race for the overall title and I intend to keep pushing hard," said Karamjit who will be driving under the GSR Pennzoil banner.

For Muhammad Rafiq of the MRU Motorsports Team, the challenge to keep the crown will be a a hard fought one with plenty of twists and turns to come.

"Rallyinng is a tough sport. There are so many things to worry about. Your car, the road conditions and your performance on the day. But I have always maintain the philosophy that as long as you prepare your car well half your battle is won," said Muhammad Rafiq who had just returned from the Rally of Japan in Hokaido where he finished fifth in the Asia Cup category.

The 3rd round of the Malaysian Rally Championship will see a total of 29 entries with history in the making too. For the first time two environment friendly fuel cars- a Daihatsu Charade De Tomaso and a Perodua Kelisa- will be entered for the championship.

The two cars are the entrants provided by the Greensports Rally Team.

But some big names will be missing in Malacca too with Cody Crocker of Australia who won the second leg in Kangar and Japan's Katsu Taguchi, the former world rally championship participant not in the line-up.

"They have pulled out due to some sponsorship issues but looking at the field gathered for Malacca, there is enough big names to give the championship the boost and the recognition it deserves," said a championship spokesman.

31 July 2011, SUBANG JAYA: The first official folding bike event in the country, the Folding Bike Fun Ride 2011, got off to a promising start at the PLUS Speedway Karting Circuit in USJ, Subang Jaya on Saturday night.

Apart from the 41 folding bike enthusiasts competing in the exciting races, national cycling stars past and present were also present to cheer them on while adding a touch of glamour to the event.

Bike shop mechanic Azhar Zulaily emerged the men's open event winner, after leaving Sakhri Zohir almost 35 seconds behind in the 8-lap final featuring the top 8 riders from two first round heats. Joseph Ng finished third.

Azhar, 19, a cycling enthusiast with interests in road cycling and mountain biking as well, said he had found out about the event through Facebook and decided to give it a try.

"It is not like any other cycling race where people mostly attend and are too serious about the racing. Here it was more about fun and getting together. It was also very nice to see so many folding bike enthusiasts here smiling all the way. We should make this a monthly affair, hopefully there's more such events to come," said Azhar.

27-year old Teo Tze Ping from Sri Hartamas won the women's open category after fending off the challenge of Janice Chai, who came all the way from Kluang, Johor, while Liana Jasmin of Damansara Perdana took third spot.

The men's masters category final, for riders above 35-years old was won by 49-year old Mohd Adzri from Klang, with Khairul Anuar taking second spot and Mohd Reffe in third. The home crowd had something to cheer when 37-year old Subang Jaya lass Rachel Lim won the women's masters category final, with another Subang Jaya lass, 47-year old Jessica Lee taking second and Rozita Shamsudin of Kajang taking third spot.

Prior to the main events, participants were given a chance to test themselves against the clock in a timed 100m dash with national cycling head coach John Beasley on hand to clock their times. The fastest man on a folding bike over 100m was Mike Chen who clocked 12.714s, while women's masters winner Rachel was the fastest sprinter at 14.436s.

Former cycling great M. Kumaresan, track star turned BMX rider Rizal Tisin, newly crowned national mountain bike champion Shahrin Amir, former national road champion Fauzan Ahmad Lutfi and former national gymnast Afrita Nasril were on hand to add a touch of glamour to the event.

The Malaysian National Cycling Federation (MNCF) sent a team in full force to officiate and provide technical assistance to event organisers Comma Motorsports and Folding Bike Trading, while isotonic drinks brand 100 Plus provided refreshments for the riders.

"This is a type of event that will make cycling accessible to all walks of life. I'm not sure if there ever was a race specifically for folding bikes held anywhere in the world. This might be the first, although John Beasley has suggested that we conduct thorough checks to see if anyone has ever recorded a 100m timing on folding bikes, it might even be a world record!," joked MNCF deputy president Datuk Naim Mohamad.

"Jokes aside, we see this as an ideal platform to promote cycling to the masses, among other disciplines of cycling. The bikes are affordable and accessible, plus they are really practical bicycles to commute with.

The numbers of folding bikes owners is growing, so for them to have an event such as this is a great idea. It will only help the interest in this flourish. For us, as the national body, we will support the growth of this area of cycling."

Event organiser Well Tan said the event had been planned as a prelude to more events to come, just to cater for folding bike enthusiasts.

"We didn't know what to expect, so the turnout was pretty satisfying. From the feedback we got, a lot of the enthusiasts want more of this. So, we will be planning more events to come in the later part of the year, maybe even a series of folding bike races. But that will be up to sponsors," said Well.

29 July 2011, SUBANG JAYA: The first ever Folding Bike Fun Ride 2011 takes place at the PLUS Speedway Go-Kart Circuit in USJ, Subang Jaya tomorrow night with encouraging response already from folding bike enthusiasts throughout the Klang Valley.

The event, slated as a prelude to a regular folding bike jamboree series planned later this year, will be the first of its kind in the country, bringing together this new wave of cycling enthusiasts.

"We're trying to encourage the growth of cycling not just as a high performance, serious sport, but also as a means of environmentally friendly transportation and this has seen growth in numbers of folding bicycles on Malaysian roads," said event co-organiser Sayed Alfeizal Sayed Ahmad.

The event is also supported by the country's top isotonic drinks brand 100 Plus.

"Mainly the folding bikes enthusiasts have gathered for group rides and tours around the country. Some also use their folding bikes to commute. Some have also tried entering races for road bikes with their folding bikes," said Folding Bike Trading managing director Well Tan.

"Since there are already quite a number of folding bike enthusiasts in the country, we decided it is the right time to have events catering to them. Yes, there will be races, but mainly we are aiming to get these enthusiasts together for a fun event."

MNCF deputy president Datuk Naim Mohamad expressed his pleasure at seeing the growth in this segment of cycling and pledged cooperation from the governing body towards such efforts.

"As the parent body, we do not officially have a unit that looks into folding bikes. But seeing that there is such an interest in this segment of cycling, we are quite pleased and will look into providing assistance where need be to ensure that it continues to grow," said Datuk Naim.

The event will begin at 6pm tomorrow (Saturday, 30 July) with events in four categories - men and women Open and masters. The organisers have also pre-set safety requirements of each rider needing to wear a helmet and with minimum rear blinkers, since the event will be held at night.
