So todays update is not only a day late, but its also rather absent of the planned extravaganza of mildly inappropriate tales of Stages 1 and 2 from the Tour of Matabungkay. As such, not only will this be the shortest post on record, but it also ended up being the most succinct stage race I’ve ever done (20 minutes if i recall correctly?).
Given that this is the first DN post ever dictated I shall keep it brief and bring you all the scintillating and embarrassing details next week on how I managed to crash all on my own in a fucking TT, one may suspect its karma for me taking the piss out of Quintana when he did the same thing in the Vuelta.

For those of you going to Tour OF Bintan I will have a few tips that will either put you off racing or improve your preparedness.
