Finished 2011 Shimano Bikers’ Festival – Men’s EliteMTB race with my nice crew - 9 ActiveX’ers, ALLEN QIN, COLINLI, EDA ZHAO, WESLEY WANG, RUI ZHANG, BRUCE XU, WESLEY WANG, KAREN YANG, FOD SHADBAKHT and a friend. It was raining hard during the whole race, and court wasawesome except the climbing and slippery part. Unfortunately this was a verybad organized race, almost half of the participants didn't catch up the starttime due to all the race categories were ahead of time to play. Hopefully therace organizer could be more professional and respectful those participants whorode 1hr in the hard rain to join the race! But anyway, the team had a greatpost-race meal together, and it's always feeling great to stay with ActiveXteam.

First day of this month, I just finished my first HM training within 2hrs, great improvement. In the first two weeks, I trained very hard and there're too much calories burned.

On Sunday, 13 ActiveXers including friends and families, KAREN YANG (QA Lead, IS),FOD SHADBAKHT (English Trainer), EDA ZHAO (Config/Release Engineer, IT), CASH XU (Controller), WESLEY WANG (Software Engineer, ACR), BRUCE XU(QA, ActiveTrainer), TONY CHEN (QA, IS), COLIN LI(Associate Manager, IT), DYLAN HAI (Sys Administrator, IT), STEVEN LIU (Dev, Class) finished our first official bike race in Xi’an, 2011 UCC & ZOOM National Cycling Series, on the symbol of great significance of the famous historic cultural city of Xi'an, the Xi'an City Wall. This is the first and very rare opportunity you can ride your own bike on the City Wall, but it was not that pleasant as you saw or you thought, because it was so bumpy!

The team finished the all the MTB categories safely, most of us rode 2 laps (27.4KM) and plus 4 finished a group ride. The speed winner in the team is Eda, who finished at 56’50’’. The distance winner is Dylan, who finished 4 laps totally. It was funny to have a day like this, we made some stupid mistakes, but we finished pretty awesome, as a team.  Also thanks for ANSON ZHAO, JESSIE JI, LILY BU, SUSIE HOU, VERA MA AND JANE SHI’s volunteering and supporting at the start/finish line! They’re real pro photographers, bike mechanics, and logistics! Luckily I noticed we’re the only team with our own volunteers and supporters in the race!

It's been for a long time I haven't put on my soccer boots and gears to the field, though I've made mind for a while to kick a few goals, well, just right time, when the ex-XSoccer coach's leaving comes, I could find myself a reason to do so, and then it happened!

On Saturday morning, played 2 hrs at the QuJiang Pool Relic Park with Sayid, TonyC, Vincent, Behrman, Rocky, Neil, Shane and Locke, amazing crew and we really had a great time playing over there! Hope next game comes soon!

Just a little bit hiking on Friday from our team event at the Shangwang village, with several girls in team, walking across the river at the rear of the village after lunch, it was a great day for hiking after raining, the mountain was like being washed, and everything smelt fresh.

Girls are shy to move and very careful to step across the river, but they made it, it was very excited! Great team.
