Finished 2nd in Petaling Jaya DH Challenge March 20, 2011 really got RedRide spirit high. He lost by a mere 1 second to FlyFin in the final run. Gunning for podium in Expert category for Malaysian DH Super Series starting this April, RedRide is back in the scene with a heavy luggage of experience to take down the expert riders favorites for 2011. 2011 will be his last Expert category race in MDHSS as he said that his chronological and psychological age is catching up.

His team mate Adam Ahmed, rode to victory in the Men Open final run beating Selangor's top gunners Fareez and Sharilhaizat. AC and new ROAMer Munawar finished 6th & 4th in Men under 21. Last year MDHSS Men Junior overall champion, Low Yee Pin settled with 5th place finishing.

Our specialist in Master B - Master Yamm, confirmed the voice of riders to claim the Master B championship. Riding his new 2011 Intense M9, he rode flawlessly but crashed in the last hip jump. Even with the crash, his time was ahead of his fellow competitors by 19 seconds.
