World-class Pump Track Action at The Bike Playground’s First Anniversary

MANILA, Philippines – April 2018 – As the first and only bike park in the country, The Bike Playground celebrated another milestone with its first anniversary event. Last April 7, 2018, The Bike Playground held the Red Bull Pump Track World Championships qualifier, an exhilarating global race series that took local pump track racing to new heights, and welcomed local biking enthusiasts from all over the country.

This was held as one of the qualifier events that are undertaken in cities around the world, which will culminate with the grand final to be held on September 7, 2018 in Lenzerheide, Switzerland. This is set to coincide with the world-renowned Union Cycliste Internationale Mountain Bike (UCI MTB) World Championships, where the official Pump Track World Champion will be named in the finals.

For the Philippine leg of the competition, Jericho Farr takes the win in Manila for the men’s category, with Lea Denise Belgica taking the top spot in the women’s.

With heart-pumping bike exhibitions to thrill the crowd, The Bike Playground’s anniversary also featured Dutch professional mountain biker Joost Wichman, winner of the 2013 UCI Championship, World Cup racer, Radon Factory rider & team manager, and celebrity in the biking world was present as a participant in the Philippine leg of the qualifiers.

The global race series is being jointly undertaken by Red Bull and Velosolutions.

Velosolutions is globally known for its pump track and bike park construction, and is also the name behind the superior offerings of The Bike Playground’s first-rate facilities. Headed by international designer and mountain bike luminary Claudio Calouri, Velosolutions offers customized solutions for various cycling needs.

A top-notch facility that promotes cycling as an activity that can be enjoyed by all, the Bike Playground offers bike rentals and assistance from highly skilled coaches from the Philippine National Team. It also houses the country’s first indoor asphalt pump track, which can be used even during the rainy season. An outdoor trail and a kids’ track expands the list of spaces that can be enjoyed within the park.

The Bike Playground is located within Circulo Verde, a 10-hectare master-planned mixed-use community envisioned by its developers, Ortigas & Co., to become an active lifestyle destination. Situated in Circulo Verde, Calle Industria, Quezon City, the Bike Playground has become a favoured destination among bikers, who enjoy its range of offerings and fun events held especially for the biking community. It first opened its tracks to the public last March of 2017.

Join Alaska Cycle Asia Philippines In Building CHAMPIONS

@ALASKAsportshub #AlaskaCycleAsia

Yung pamangkin ko, paborito ngayon ang Alaska Chocolate. Pagkakita niya nung uwi ko na Alaska products, tuwang-tuwa siya at hindi mapigilan ang kulit. Takbo ng takbo habang isa-isa niyang kinuha ang Alaska Chocolate sachets at binigay sa mommy niya sa lamesa.

Magiging Champion din tong pamangkin ko balang araw.

Alaska Cycle Philippines is an annual cycling event from Cycle Asia. With different iterations across Asia, Alaska hopes to reverse the effects of obesity and malnutrition in the region.

In the Philippines, this event is part of Alaska’s “Nutrition. Action. Champion.” program of promoting healthy and active lifestyle through sports participation and Milk consumption.

Noong bata pa ako, mahilig din ako sa gatas. Parati akong pinaiinom ng milk sa tanghali bago ako patulugin.

We need physical activity NOW! Sa panahon kasi ngayon, puro computer na lang ang inaatupag ng mga bata. Dapat natin silang ilabas sa arawan at pabayaang maglaro.

Memory Miyerkules Ocho

Pauwi ako nun, galing sa simbahan. Nakabisikleta lang ako. Walang pangalang yung dala kong bisikleta nun.

Medyo mabilis din ako magpatakbo ng bisikleta. Walang kasalubong e. Wala din naman kasabay na ibang tao. Ako lang ang nasa kalsada. Nakakapag swerve swerve pa nga ako e.

I am free!!!

Nung dalawang kanto na lang malapit sa amin, sa may kalsada ng  zone 8-9, medyo nag banking ako papasok  sa eskinita. Napanuod ko kasi ang banking technique sa TV. Ginagawa yun ng mga nagka-karera sa motocross. Ginagamit nila ang tuhod nila para makapag-balanse ng maayos sa motor.

At kailangan, medyo mabilis ka para makapag-banking ng maayos.

Pero nagulat na lang ako. May sumalubong sa akin. Si Ace, kasamahan ko sa pagiging sakristan. Naka-motor siya. Mabagal ang pagpapatakbo niya ng motor habang ako naman ang mabilis.

Hindi kami nagkaintindihan sa pag-iwas. Kumabig kami sa parehong direksyon. Lagot na.

Nabangga niya ang harap kong gulong. Hindi naman ako tumalsik. Nakapreno kami pareho at huminto ang lahat.

Buhay pa ako. Alam ko buhay pa ako.

At ganun din naman siya. Pati ang motor niya, walang galos.

Pero ang gulong ko sa harapan, ayun. Nag-ocho na. Hindi ko na magagamit yung bike. napilitan akong ikalas ang gulong at maglakad pauwi. Si Ace na rin ang nagbitbit ng ocho kong gulong.

Malas talaga ata ako pag malapit na ako sa bahay.

Tuwing Wednesday, magb-blog ako tungkol sa naaalala ko sa aking kabataan. Ito ang aking “Project:  Memory Miyerkules” .

Layunin nitong maisulat paunti unti ang aking talambuhay.

 

P:MM – Bisikleta

Alas tres ng tanghali, medyo mataas pa ang araw. Hindi pa advisable para lumabas ng kalsada para maglaro. Pero dahil sa kakulitan ko at kagustuhan kong matutunan gamitin ang bisikletang pinamana sa amin ng aming mga pinsan, pinipilit ko ang nanay ko na payagan akong lumabas.

Summer noon. Sobrang init sa labas. Tuyung tuyo ang kalsada. May mga maliliit na  butil ng grava at bato at walang bakas ng tag-ulan. Maalikabok ang sahig na nagbibigay ng dulas sa kahit na sinong naglalakad. Buti na lang at walang mga taong wala sa katinuan na lumalabas ng bahay sa oras na ganito.

Sinilip ko ang gate namin, Continue reading
