New🔥 GCE DUATHLON 2018 – Preview by Gus Rider
GCE Duathlon 2018 is Malaysia’s no.1 closed highway duathlon. Participants can enjoy the outdoors in a safe and traffic free environment. Catch EARLY BIRD registration until 5 Aug!
🌟SPECIAL ONE: There are a couple of Duathlon Events around, but none captured my attention as much as this GCE Duathlon 2018: After all, it’s the First Fully Closed HIGHWAY DUATHLON, and How Great Is That !!
👎SAFETY LAST: Road & Race Safety has always been a constant HOT issue among sports event organisers, the wary participants and the general road users. Only when there is a road fatality during races, the event safety aspects & precautions will be publicly debated, but sadly, all will be too late for the victims and their bereaving families.
👎RISK TAKERS: Since the participants must sign a WAIVER FORM before the race, it is ultimately up to the individual to decide if he/she feels that the racing conditions are SAFE ENOUGH to proceed or to abandon the race. Of course, the level of safety perception varies from individuals, organisers and the concerned authorities. Without any international and enforceable race SAFETY GUIDELINES available, runners, cyclists, triathletes and duathletes have to make their own race safety assessment and act accordingly.
👍 CAR-FREE HIGHWAYS: It is very expensive to totally close a major toll highway to hold events and forego the lost toll revenues. Moreover, it’s a very long and complicated process to obtain the necessary approvals and permits from all the many relevant authorities to close any toll highways. As a result, not many organisers would dare to embark on such a mammoth undertake.
👍 GO, GO, GO GoSportz: Luckily for the Sports Community, event organiser GoSportz has finally managed to confirm Malaysia’s First Closed Highway Duathlon which will aptly take place on Malaysia Day, 16th September 2019.
