Hi Skaters,
AIC Putrajaya Boulevard
Please note the Malaysian leg of the Asianic Inline Cup, will go ahead in the spectacular Political Capital of Putrajaya on the 1st August.

GOOD NEWS IS that the cost of living, is only half the price of Singapore & there are very few places in the World, where you can still purchase a McDonalds meal for around $2 USA Dollars, this is one of them, also accomodation is very cheap for those from outside of Malaysia.

The beautifull city surrounding a Man Made Lake & Fantastic Buildings, is a must to see, Plus a true World class marathon Circuit, a test for everyone.

SEE you all there, for this first off wonderfull event.

    Nicole Begg Conquers Patrajaya AIC

    by Bill Begg (Aug. 1, 2009)
    Hi Skaters,

    In her first road racing since the end of April, Nicole Begg Tackled the tough Patrajaya Bouelevard Malaysian Course, with a tough hill test on each of the 7.5 km laps of the 45km race, In the first Hill after a fast opening pace Nicole Begg lead Kim Sik (Tiger) from Korea over the top, followed by Diasuke Kazamaki from Japan & Johanas Wihardja from Indonesia over the top, with fellow Indonesian's Dimas Prasetya Putera & Eri Marina Yo the second lady over the top, Sylvia Setiawan, was the 3rd Lady, but with the tough opening start & first hill thrust by Nicole, at the end of lap one, Tiger Sik, Nicole & Dimas had a 43 sec lead over the rest & they continued to go away.

    After some attempts to get away, Nicole Begg attacked to the far side of the road & got clear for a good workout, on the final Hill Sik the Korean & Putera the Indonesian mens Marathon Champion had had enough, Tiger Sik won From Dimas Putera & Johannas Wihardja, in a top day for Indonesia, they also took out 2nd & 3rd in the ladies, with Eri Marina You & Sylvia Setiwan, Eri had already claimed a major victory in the 500 meter pre marathon sprint, with a win over Nicole Begg.

    Hi Skaters,

    In my personal opinion Patrajaya Malaysia was the perfect marathon course for a World Inline cup race, the Much Travelled Kim Aimes & fellow USA skater John Mucho told Malaysian leg organizor Eusoffe Chua that it was the best marathon course they had been on, with hills an a good element of toughness & one that a dead set sprinter could not win on.

    One thing that Max Presti & I both agreed on was that the top marathon skaters races were to soft & Max has always advocated that no more than 20 top skaters should ever reach the finishing Zone together, with this in Mind & my own thoughts I chose a course I considered would be worthy of a World Cup race, as the Local Skateline Bont representative Eusoffe, first showed me couse options.

    I felt quite happy about my choice till the International skaters toured the 7.5 km course, my daughter Nicole said I had made it to tough for trying to promote to other skaters not at the world class level, I had already had the recreation 10 km & 5 km skates turn around before the tough 350 meter hill. So it would have been easy to eliminate the major hill & still have a Hill Prime, on the top of the bridge over the Lake, which was a tough 400 meter drag.

    I put it to the vote & the 3 top Indonesian girls wanted the hill left in & Tiger & Diasuke & the Indonesian men had no trouble with it, so the hill remained.

    As it turned out Nicole was correct, as she continued to tear up the hill, with the men struggling & many of the lesser skaters destroyed, but upon addressing the skaters at the start, that we did not want to see any men dropping back to tow & help women.

    I never thought I would live to see the day that the opposite applied, On lap 3 the two men with Nicole sat on for 3 km in one stretch , not wanting to take a lead, after nearly 30 km Nicole attacked & got away with the Korean Tiger in tow, but gave it away & thought it unfair, if she towed one of the two men away for a win.

    So the 3 regrouped, with 5km of the 45 km race to go Nicole attacked on the Incline over the bridge on the far side of the road & Tiger Kim Bum Sik Korea & Dimas
    Prasetya Putera the Indonesian Marathon Champ, did not & could not respond. After having an excellent pre season Build up & winning 3 out of 4 of the early seasons Marathons & 2nd in a 4th, with only 1 WIC race Nicole took out revenge on the tough course, to give herself a reasonable workout, in the lead up to the World Champs.

    American John Mucho relished the tough conditions & this masters skater new to the sport after being a Cross Country skier, is looking better with each outing & in the Masters, as a stand alone event, he is closing the gap on the likes of top Italian masters. Daniel Chee Wee Singapore was 5th an Usa Skater Andrew Dranginis an ex cyclist, who took up speed skating after a Singapore posting was 6th, Frenchman Jacques Frety was 7th, while the Malaysian skater Kevin Peterson 8th, in a country where serious speed skating has not been practiced, put in a brave effort to finish the event.

    In 9th place Koh Choo Seng Tony a 60 year old Singaporian who skates every day never gave up & completed the course for 9th, while Roger Ang, recently recovering from a serious Motor bike accident was 10th, with Ong Gin Lip 11th, Steven Tan from Malaysia 12th & Adrian Janitra Sitompul from Indonesia was 13th & finished in a very distressed condition.

    Patrajaya 500's & Marathon times

    by Bill Begg (Aug. 2, 2009)
    Hi Skaters,

    With 10 bonus points for the winner, with 1 for 8th, for the pre Marathon sprint, most the top contendors chase the points, in the Ladies the Indonesian Eri Marina Yo got her day off to a great start, with a win over Nicole Begg, who was one of the fastest at the recent World games, although Begg did not get it right, she is not one to throw races away to non team mates, so a great win for Yo & every reason as to why the Indonesian, should be present at Haining & the first Individual from Indonesia to attend World championships.

    Although some difficulties are involved the AIC is working very hard to try & encourage representation from Singapore, Malaysia & Indonesia, to the FIRS World Champs in Haining.
