pontiancyclingdude first crash

We were supposed to cycle to Nusajaya today but I couldn't make the trip there because of having fever. Around 10 o'clock or so, I received a massage telling me that my buddy had an accident on their way back from Gunung Pulai. It is a hit and run. They recognized that the driver was a lady who drive a Toyota Wish. The accident happened at Parit Baru. The picture above shows the main victim (Bro Ancun) still in shock after the incident. They couldn't cycle back and had to wait for transportation to pick them up.
Most of them having small cut on their elbow. It is not about how bad their injury but the driver who involved in this accident shouldn't run away after the incident. She must take responsibility for not driving in a proper way.
The last picture shows my buddies waiting for the transportation to arrive. Two wheel wobbling and very hard to say that the wheel can be recovered. I hope this will be the last accident happen to us. Until then, ride safely....

Spaniard Alberto Contador will be Astana's leader in the Tour de France and will have seven-times champion Lance Armstrong among his helpers, team manager Johan Bruyneel said.

Contador, winner of the Tour in 2007, will also be assisted by American Levi Leipheimer and German Andreas Kloeden, who both have podium finishes to their names in the world's greatest cycling race.

"After winning the Tour in 2007 and then becoming the fifth cyclist to win all three Grand Tours, it's hard to find a better stage race rider than Alberto," Bruyneel said.

"He has worked very hard, earning the right to represent our team as the leader in July."

The Tour de France starts on July 4 in Monaco with a 15.5-km time trial which appears tailor-made for Contador with a 7.5-km ascent in the first part.

American Armstrong, in his comeback season after three years and an half in retirement, will be one of Contador's eight aides on the French roads.

"I'm very happy with where Lance's form is leading up to the tour", said Bruyneel.

"I think racing the Giro was a very smart decision and really prepared him for July. He is extremely motivated for the Tour de France."

Armstrong, 37, broke his collarbone in March but took part in the Giro, which he finished in 12th place overall, almost 16 minutes behind winner Denis Menchov of Russia.

Russia's Tour of Italy champion , seen here in March 2009, will lead the Rabobank team in next month's Tour de France, the Dutch based team's manager said.
The Caisse d'Epargne cycling team named 10 cyclists from which they must select nine for the Tour de France, which runs from July 4-26.

Six of them, the Spaniards David Arroyo, Ivan Gutierrez, Luis Pasamontes, Luis Leon Sanchez, Xabier Zandio and 2006 champion Oscar Pereiro (pictured) - awarded victory after American Floyd Landis was disqualified for failing a drugs test - are assured of their places on the start line in Monaco.

The three final places are being contested by Portugal's Rui Costa, Frenchman Arnaud Coyot, Spain's Jose Joaquin Rojas and the Colombian Rigoberto Uran.

The final squad for the Tour de France will be named after the various national championships taking place on Sunday.

Spain's Alejandro Valverde is banned from racing in Italy, which boasts a stage in this year's Tour on July 21, and has not been selected.

Christian Vande Velde has recovered from injuries suffered in a fall during the Giro d'Italia and will lead the Garmin team in the Tour de France.

The 33-year-old, who ended last year's Tour in fifth place but was promoted to fourth on the disqualification of Bernhard Kohl for failing a doping test, is one of four American riders in the team.

It also includes the British pair - Olympic pursuit three-times gold medallist Bradley Wiggins and David Millar - for the Tour which starts on July 4 in Monaco.

Another of the US racers is time-trial specialist and 2005 yellow jersey wearer David Zabriskie.

Garmin have also included two up-and-coming riders - American sprinter Tyler Farrar and Irish specialist climber Dan Martin.

Luxembourg brothers Frank and Andy Schleck will lead the Saxo Bank team at the Tour de France.

Frank was sixth overall last year and 10th in 2006 when he won the queen stage to Alpe d'Huez.

His younger brother Andy claimed the white jersey as best young rider last year, finishing 12th overall.

A strong Saxo Bank squad also includes Tour of Switzerland winner Fabian Cancellara, who will start the prologue as favourite, and multiple past stage winners Stuart O'Grady and Jens Voigt.

Olympic time trial silver medallist Gustav Larsson and Kurt-Asle Arvesen, the winner of the stage to Foix last year, are joined by Nicki Sorensen and Chris Anker Sorensen.

Pontian-Gunung Pulai

Date: 21/06/2009
Distance: 45km
This is my first outing since May. I am a bit worry if I still can made it. Fortunately everything goes fine. I arrived here at the Warong goreng pisang (fried banana stall) earlier than my friends.
The new pictures of Buyung and Azies. Looks they are in great shape.
Today we had our breakfast at the stall in between Gunung Pulai 1 and the route to Gunung Pulai 2. The shop is quite busy that morning. The food was superb (lontong and fried chicken) and cheap. As you can see from the pictures above, some of the customers need to wait to be seated. Since we are dressing like aliens (tight) everyone have a strange face looking at us...hahaha
Azies and Buyung posing before riding back. This is where we split. I am heading back to Kulai and the both heading back to Pontian.
We did made a short discussion about our next ride. We decide to ride to Nusajaya from Pontian this Monday 29/06/2009. If you are reading this article, own a bike and nothing to do that day, we would like to invite you to join us. Untill then, see you.
