So, there's been a big drop in active members recently, and the cc on RS has been very empty, i guess there are realities and people get on with life, but prehaps time for a recrutment drive!
Anyway, some of the few long-time members may remember that in the real world Im a Graphics student, and a Cycalist.
This season (2015) I signed for a team called Bottecchia UK, who offerd me a free bike, all the kit and gear, and a place amongst a national compettative road racing team.
This season I have had much luck and bad luck in and out of the country, but after a gruelling year I managed to get promoted to Catagory 1.... The catagory system begins with junior levels A ,B,C,D, then a big step up to 4,3,2,1,ELITE.
My friends and family have pushed me to go for an Elite lisence... but like getting a Max cape in rs, the multiplyer effect makes getting levels harder.... MUCH harder... you're fighting against the countries top 10 riders on a regular basis to get points.
So I decided to call it a season early and relax with some pleasure riding and a bit of racing, but Im not ready to gove my life up for the spor just yet..
So I's good to be back on RS, and recently picked up my 99wc and 99rng capes as an incentive to keep playing.
Here's some pics of me in my new gear this season...
(our team has 12 riders, with a few of us in each race supporting one-another)
We call this tight-twisty racing. 'Criterium racing', its short, very fast, and very high risk.
(Unfortunatly this was a bunch sprint for 3rd as there were
2 guys up the road ahead, but it's still points on offer for top 15!)
So, what have you all been up to!!!??
