Thanks for the invite.
Hope your daughter get back to normal.

When you fly to Manila, maybe we can hook up at the Manila Airport hotel (in front of Terminal 3). Here's my digits 09209134580 or 09226826190

My apologies Ridesolo and to the other inmates who are expecting for some Go Pro vids and pix. I don't have any. After i removed the camera from my helmet at Tugegarao check point at 5:50am, because it was slowing me down, I never had the chance to put it back on...... sorry!




Continued:

After going down from Baguio, I passed the Flying V Checkpoint at Pugo, La Union at about past 1:20pm The last was on! This is the time for me to give it all I've got. I zoomed and rode hard (safely). Many road construction, vehicular traffic and obstacles on the way to the finish line in Clark Field, Pampanga. I had my phone head phones on and was in contact with my friends and family at the finsh line to update me on how many finishers have arrived.

After about 2 hours of riding, riding from town to town from La Union to Pangasinan to Tarlac, I finally entered the town of Pampanga. I even made a mistake of not passing the SCTEX. highway which the organizers allowed participants to pass through the expressway entry at Tarlac City because of the many road constructions from Tarlac City to Pampanga.


It was past 3pm when I crossed the finish line at Hotel Stotsenberg at Clark. The marshals were asking for my passport......




Then the Marshals checked my bike's odometer reading......




Yahoo!!! I am finished! Did the whole 1,200kms in 15hrs++. I finished the 7th rider (un-officially) in this event. Most of the top 10 finisher were all BMWs. It was the first time for me to arrive early and i even went to the pool to swim with my children.


Below is the top 10 bikes to finish the challenge (exluding the KTM). Pix was taken early the next day (Sunday)




more pix taken at the hotel Stotsenberg to follow....

More pix at the parking lot that early Sunday morning Jan 15, 2012...



My youngest daughter Sophia





That's me and Sophia






Posing with the V-strom.... Good job Vee, thanks for bringing me home safely!




More pix of the participants bikes...


































I got a ride buddy who used a brand new 500cc Fi Royal Enfield in this event. He was kind enough to let me take it for a spin around the parking lot...













Breakfast time at the Hotel Stotsenberg with the participants...














That's the 2012 IronMan Challenge chairman, gsblue on the right side of the pix

During the BOSS IronMan Challenge 1st briefing last Dec 8, 2011. I attended the briefing together with fellow inmate Rackemcrackem. It was a few days after our Boracay trip. During the briefing, it was covered by Inside Racing Magazine, we were lucky enough to be included in the pictures.


The January issue of Inside Racing Magazine Volume 9 No. 12




A scanned page of the BOSS Ironman VII article




Sectional pictures of the article.....




Guess who our special guest is..... From Alasaka..... Rackemcrackem!!!

well the earth shook for us here in bohol at tagbilaran city from the earth quake was in the ICM shopping centre.

fly back home today 2 weeks short from what was planned our daughters health has picked up but flights were changed before she got better.

tagbilaran city has changed lots since my last stay very busy now. near everyone has a scooter now & cell phone even lower classed/struggling family's in the ran down native houses.

chocolate hills was great nice cool up there for this time of the year if your wanting to escape from the heat/humidity of tagbilaran city.

anyone needs a ride or tour in the chocolate hills - carmen area. my brother inlaw is located at the bottom of the hills & does private tours around the area ask for KIM in brown toyota car (aircon) .

had a full day at bajong falls - valencia was refreshing , had hard time getting my daughter out to go back home

yesterday had a family day at white beach - panglao

@ Sir Herc..

My congratulations to your 2012 ironman quest!

Btw some of my GS ride buddies here in Mindanao were interested in joining this event, infact they had themselves registered, but unfortunately they won't able to make it due to the time constraint in traveling to Manila from Mindanao by their bikes. Again, our congratulatons the finishers. Ride on!

Congrats to all the 2012 Ironman finishers! Thanks, again, Herc for finding time to post all the great pics and providing us "armchair" Ironman riders with a view of the events.

That certainly looks like a scowl on my face in one of those pics from Inside Racing....I must have been unhappy that I couldn't be there for the ride! The frown has ben replaced by a big smile, though, coz I get to have another vacation in the Phils., starting March 23! whoohoo!

Hi Hondav2,

Thanks for asking. It's possible that some beautiful filipina will hold me captive on Luzon for this entire trip.
Unfortunately, this vacation is only a short tease for about 12 days....just long enough to remind me I'm still married to my career!

If my kidnap ransom gets paid, though, Bantayan island is high on my list of places to visit. Are there any commercial flights from Mactan to Bantayan currently, or is it a road/ferry trip?
