putrajaya eco 'buyers' challenge!

Dear all, just want to share...we just experienced buyers race organized by KBS in Putrajaya...The race was initially known as "Putrajaya Eco Challenge" until later in the day we figured that the race was "Putrajaya buyers Kayak & Sukaneka Challenge"...The race was divided into 2 discipline which the 1st discipline involves '7'km running, 15km mtb, '10' km kayaking...The 2nd discipline involves 8 activities which involves pulling 3 tonnes lorry, log lifting, assemble and reassemble scaffolding, archery, paintball n etc...There were familliar faces such as navy team in the open category participating in this event.

1st discipline - Our team managed to lead in running and cycling. The closest team that trailing us was only a team that we called 'teenager team'. Then followed by navy team and the rest. During kayak, there was only 1 team that use thier own paddle (former kayaker). This team was organizer team which known as KBS Putrajaya.

In this kayak event, the participant need to complete 3 loops. Our team lead in the 1st and 2nd loops. The 'teenager team' was trailing us from start until last loop. However, last 200m our team spotted other team which near to us. We actually recognized the 'teenager team' as they wearing a blue hat but the team that trailling us last 200 m was not wearing a hat. When we about to entered the platform, that team (not wearing blue hat) also followed us. That team quickly pushed thier kayak to the finishing area and trailed by our team at less than 10m. This was the '1st buyers' of the day. There was 2 marshall that located at the platform. Initially, both of them agreed that the team in front of us is not enough loop as they only tick 2 loops for them. The marshall witnessed that the second team that trailling us was the 'teenager team'. However that team in first position was did not disqualified. The 'teenager team' that arrived later also confused that why they was in third position as they confident that they should be in 2nd position. The 'first' team that in front of us is KBS Putrajaya, and now we know why the team is not being disqualified.

At the end of the 1st disipline the score was like this:

Our team - 40 marks for 1st placed in running
40 marks for 1st placed in cycling
36 marks for 2nd placed in kayak
total 116 marks

We supposed to be in the first position as the closest team was 'teenager team' that able to collect 104 marks. The organizer team which arrived first in kayak was only 70+ mark as they didnt get any marks in running (lembap!). I managed to peep the result on the organizer desk before the second discipline begin.

To cut it short, our team announced as 5th team in final result and the 1st team was KBS Putrajaya. Well the protest begin. We asked the organizer how they calculated the points. The organizer gave the calculation sheet and unbelievable that they didn't include the marks that we gained from running and cycling. The organizer said that they just pick which team that arrived at the finishing area of kayak. WTF?? Their team should be disqualified earlier but somehow the organizer team managed to get 1st position in the 1st discipline! No point la brader lari n kayuh tu! We were confident with our 2nd discipline result as we compared with navy team and there was not much differences. Somehow the navy team managed to get in 2nd and 3rd position. I was there asking the organizer to show me the earlier result that I peeped but they was like shocked and pura-pura dok cari kertas tu plak!haishhhh....I don't blame that pakcik who helping in calculating the marks but I was really piss off with the people behind this shit! Suddenly datang pulak sekor mamat ala-ala mat rempit sound aku...This is how this 'gentleman' said to me:

"Bro korang terima je lah ape yang organizer cakap, lagipon kalau team ko tinggalkan team aku sejam pon, team aku still bole kejar la, diorg tu kayak Malaysia!"..... fuhhhhh......imagine that! But I was wondering 1 thing, why this guy leave after he said that??Lu takut ke bro? sound2 pastu blah...chicken! That guy was in KBS putrajaya team a.k.a organizer wonder lah!...hahahah..tapi mamat kayak malaysia tu xkecoh pon, yang mamat seko ni je plak yang bising2 padahal die x kayak pon!...sengal....finaly, lesson that we lerned from this race:

1. You can win a race by organizing it
2. you can win easily by having your friends as marshall.
3. you can win really easy by mention "korang terima jela ape yg organizer cakap" at the end of the race!

p/s : To abang KBS Putrajaya, ko ingat team mate aku tu budak sekolah ke ape? cakap pikir dulu bro! kalau bran jom la kite try 3 loop, lu bagi team gua jalan sejam dulu pastu team lu kejar...kalau bran la...kalau x bran x yah cakap okay!!
