So we ride about 3km to Batu Cave, navigate through the Jam in Batu Cave thinking it was Thaipusam. About 2km we come to the 1st killing hills, about 1km, i used my climbing gear and climb like turtle, then one by one the national cyclist pass by, from the malaysia logo on their jersey i assume they are. After reach the top of the hill, its fun time, zooming down the hills really fun, but the nice thing was the nice view of the Ulu Yam Dam on my left.
About 10-15 mins of cycling come to the second hill, again climb like turtle, after reach there refill my water bottle and zoom down hill again, this time goin down at much faster speed, yea... and do some drafting, continue riding until the Nasi Lemak stall. Take a rest fill up the water tank and the stomach.
Now we heading back to Batu Cave, the journey was not so easy, had to climb the hills under hot sun was killing me, its like forever... however manage to reach the top, refill water and keep on going, by now the Ulu Yam Dam was on my right side, very nice view of it, come to the last hill, short and very killing, damn it... Thank God it was only 1km. After the hill reach Batu Cave and heading back to Wangsa Maju with Adrian, while the others heading back to Kepong. Today ride was hot and windy...

After the double hills route(10km) now the Hartamas route(20km), i keep telling myself i run this route many times and i can do it. At the 15km water station saw Tey taking photos of other runners. At 17km saw alot of 20km runner heading back to Lake Garden including 30km runners as well. Saw some familiar faces like Ronnie aka Pm1, Gradeline, Zul Azlan, Wendy, Erl, Run Wit U, Kenny Tan, Chris, Adrian, Ccube, Kenneth, Abu, Saiful, Nezz ... the lists go on... Meet DK at the Plaza Hartamas, keep on running until reach the 20km water station. Grab 2 power gel, drink as much as i can like kiasu haha... yea 10km to go, i can do it, go go go... about 1km into the run saw Tey, he took a photo for me,Thanks Tey. Now every steps getting heavier, the blister gone from bad to worst, wish i can find better solution for this! Suddenly i turn back and saw Karen, she overtook me and turbo off...'sigh kena potong by powerbar athlete ma'. Reaching the hill at the mosque, saw alot peoples walking up the hill, but i still refuse to walk, i slowly jog up the hill and come down to the Jalan Duta Traffice lights and reach the 25km water station. Free flows of plain water and endurance drinks, drink like no tomorrow. The streach to the last hill was like taking for every to complete. After reaching the top of the hill is going down time, and my speed was like turtle as well, even uncle overtook me... Upon reaching the traffice lights there is 2km more to go, reaching Jalan Parlimen and getting near to the last traffice light suddenly a guy wearing green Safra vest over took me, very piss off, last 1.5 km only he overtook me, so i follow his butt and i want revange! After the turn at the traffice light he like getting faster, so i just follow his pace, last 500 m i turbo to overtake him and he also turbo back, now we like running side by side, dont care cramp as long i win over him so i push all out last 100m. After finish the run i shake hand with him, ask him whats the time and he told me is 9:30am, i assume is 3h30mins my timing la since i dint wear watch. Have some fellowships with friends before i went home. Today so happy coz i did the 30km run without walking and only stop for drinks.
