Over 300 MTB riders took part on 10th Mac 2012 at Marang, Terengganu. Myself was one of them and this is my first event offroad for 2012 especially in Terengganu, away from normal event in West Coast Malaysia. MTB event was not the main event on that day, it was held in conjunction with 4 x 4 and motocross event, this is seem to be true when we were told before the flag off the distance supposed to be 30km but end up with 13.3km with 2 CP and lucky draw to be drawn only on the next day. Lack of crew and trail for the XC could be the main reason why the distance is made shorter by the organiser. The organiser had prepared medals for first 300 riders together with number of placing, this probably made riders happy and immediately gone back.
I am looking forward to have this kind of event again next year but with extra distance for MTB.
