Its not just a bike, its a LEAN MEAN SPEED MACHINE!

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

What comes to mind when the term “lean mean speed machine”is mentioned? ferrari cars, ducati motorbikes, f16 fighter jets and the list goes on and on. when it comes to bikes its Cervelo’s. It has all the characteristics of a lean mean speed machine.An Aerodynamic design,a stiff frame , light weight and when you look at Cervelo’s it just makes you say “Dam! i wish i could own that bike”.
Thats what makes Cervelos a lean mean speed machine!

This is my awesome CERVELO!

It was about 3 years ago when I traded in my 650cc bike for my 1st 700cc road bike.
I was thrilled to have a chance to own a real good bike for the first time.

In the 2 years we experienced much my bike and me, we rode all over Singapore, changi coastal, ECP, selarang loop,mandai,thomson, lim chu kang, ntu.We even went overseas, desaru,genting highland and putrajaya in malaysia, subic bay philippines, reabold hills,rockingham and mandurah in perth australia. The bike and I have been places and what about the races, from osim singapore to city duathlon to road races to overseas road and triathlon races my bike and me we have experienced much in fact I owe all of my success achieved in road races, duathlon and triathlon races to my trusty friend.It has never let me down always giving me the very best, what more can a rider ask in a bike.

So it is with much sadness that I have to say goobye to my trusted friend as I now have to ride a new bike as part of my contract with Team TBB.What a bike it is to replace my old friend, a brand new 2009 Cervelo P2C. Boy am I going to enjoy taking this baby out and putting it thru its paces.

What happens to old bike it will stay in the family, my younger brother will inherit it and I am sure it will give him the same good service as it has given me.

A bike is more than a piece of equipment to an athlete, you have to develop a relationship with it just like you do with a good friend, you have to know its characteristics in order to get the best out of it and most importantly you and your bike must learn to trust one another, only then will the bike give you the performance you need out of it. Treat it well and it will know what to do.

Goodbye my friend

Being here in Subic Bay has made me realise a lot of things. I have learnt the importance of family. Back in Singapore, my parents, my siblings, my grandmother, my aunties and my uncles care a lot about me.Everynight i would be on skype and msn(sometimes the internet signal isnt as strong as i would like it to be….) talking to my family and updating them on how the day was like .They in turn tell me how things are in Singapore.
I miss and love them a lot……..
