Here is a pic of me receiving my trophy for finishing in 10th place in a recent bicycle race.
The race was conducted not far from our house, so I felt the opportunity was too good to pass up. The race was on the roads, and was 90km long...it included hilly rides to Ta Kwai and Ta Meung, two Khmer Ancient sites I have showed previously on SC...there were about 300+ competitors of which about 200+ were serious riders and possessed amazingly high-end bicycles [carbon fibre frames, electronic gear changers, etc]...I was the oldest competitor, probably riding the oldest bike, and also the only foreigner, which made me a bit of a celebrity as I was invited into many team photos.
I was delighted with the results...10th overall...2nd in the 40+ category, and would have been first in the 50+ category if there was one.
As can be seen, I changed into less revealing costume after the race so that sensitive types like our Alan would not choke on seeing me in a lycra suit. Actually...here is a shot of me posing as an honorary member of a team before the race started, and I am wearing the tight lycra kit in it...
