BikeTrial in Kelana Jaya Lake Park

Just came back 2 hours ago from a biketrial gathering in Kelana Jaya. Syarul, Aaron, Hong, Kenji, Sean and I started out in the badminton hall in front of Kelana Square and ended up riding in front of the Kelana Jaya stadium. After that, we moved to the Kelana Jaya lake park.

In all the excitement, I forgot to take photos of the event... sorry... will try to remember the next time... :P I do have 1 video showing how hight Aaron can bunny hop on a 20"... LOL.

All in all, the gathering was very exciting with everyone sharing ideas, techniques and skills. Despite my left arm being out, I just could not resist the temptation of trying out certain moves and ideas. Right now, my throbbing left arm is letting me know that I should have paid more attention to its warning. Sigh.

My high point (with Kenji's coaching) was being able to learn how to "manual" (i.e. willie without sitting down and pedaling) on his UMF bike. Currently, I get the basic techniques but still need lots of practice to really get it dialed. Cool!

In any case, my bike had a rear puncture and Syarul's bike pedal's screw came loose and went missing. We managed to overcome these minor setback and continued riding.

All in all, it was a great night. Next week, we are going to try riding some sections.
