Le Tour de Langkawi 2010

Please click here to view photos taken by yours truly (KC).

For a change, I decided to go to KLCC area to take photos of cyclists in action. I have been at Dataran Merdeka for the past few years: the starting and ending of the Kuala Lumpur final circuit of this great event – Le Tour de Langkawi 2010.

This time, the peloton performs only six loops at the Kuala Lumpur circuit circulating between Dataran Merdeka and KLCC. Used to hearing the sound before the vehicles arrive as in Formula 1 races, the arrival of peloton is just in silent mode with blistering speed – pedal by the amazing human power.

It was a tall order trying to include the tall KLCC building in the photos when the cyclists pass by. Many of the photographers are seen lying down trying to capture the whole building as background. It was quite fun to watch these photographers who are so passionate in taking good photos, at times, risking their lives.

I tried lying down to take photos but it is tough as I would need a pillow to support my head. I may then appear in the newspaper for a wrong reason that read "CCC - camera capturing (of photos) in comfort ... :-)
