Eco X-Series 2010 Is Back!

Dear Competitors, Volunteers and Friends,

After a one year break, the Eco X-Series is back again, bigger and better than ever! It will be held in a brand new area, with several brand new disciplines and a brand new race category. Once again we are working with the indispensable support of Pejabat Kementrian Pelancongan Malaysia Negeri Selangor (Ministry of Tourism Selangor State Office) to showcase the scenic secrets of the state.

This will be the most accessible race course that we have ever had. It's 20 minutes from downtown KL to the race start and finish line! And the race links three super cool adventure locations: Batu Dam, Batu Caves and the Selangor State Park. Did you know that it's the second largest park in Peninsular Malaysia after Taman Negara and is the source of 98% of Selangor, KL and Putrajaya's water supply?

We are really excited to finally fulfill a long standing ambition to put in a significant lake kayaking section in our race. We have taken the plunge and purchased a fleet of 40 brand new kayaks. So racers, get those kayaking muscles up to speed!

Another new race discipline will be rock climbing. And of course the elite teams in the Eco X Capade category will be challenged with Nomad's signature mystery tests. Heh Heh. How could we leave out our M-M-Mystery T-T-Tests? (insert evil laugh!) This year's race is not going to have the most natural or remote race course - in fact, parts of the course are distinctly suburban - but it will definitely be our most diverse race to date with the best mixture of terrain ever.

As per our past events, the Eco X-Capade category is for teams who want to race with the best and do all the toughest challenges. The Eco X-Sprint is a non-competitive event for individuals who just want to enjoy the race course at their own pace. Our new category is the Eco X-Challenge for students teams. We believe the future of the sport lies in developing young talent and so this category is aimed at doing just that. Finally, we just could not resist having the Eco X-Cycle - a pure mountain bike race because the trails in this area are just so good!

No matter who you are, there is definitely a race for you in the Eco X Series! No excuses not to sign up! At Nomad Adventure, we certainly aim to please because Your Pain is Our Pleasure!

Train hard, train together and don’t forget the bananas!

Race Director
