Malakoff Powerman Asian Championships 2013

Powerman 2012. Out of T1.
This weekend will see the Malakoff Powerman race, which is a 11km run - 64km bike - 11km run duathlon race to be held in Putrajaya. I will be racing my 7th Powerman race and hoping to finish it the 6th time (within qualifying time that is). I did an official 4:04 last year and look to match or perhaps improve on the timing. Not entirely sure how it will go as I will be treating this race as part of my training for IMMY.

If you are racing this weekend, see you at the race. Don't forget to say hi if you see me. :) 
If this is your first multi-sports, Here are some tips that may get you along:


2. Hydrate well. Nothing more than 600ml/hour. Don't forget your fuelling plan.

3. Do not draft (follow the bike in front) as it's illegal and dangerous.

4. Do not overtake bikes on the left and always be courteous and let the person infront you are overtaking by shouting "Bike on right!". Overtake fast and swift.

5. The same way as 4, if you are not going fast, keep left! Do not cycle side by side with your friend and chit-chat!

6. Do not litter. Bring your gel packs back to transition and dispose it properly.

7. If you see a participant in distress, always ask if they need help.

Good luck and race safe!

Below is the official communication from the race organiser to help you along. The memo below was sent out via email about three days ago. So, in case you missed it, you had read it here!
