A classical case of PMC and a retirement

Written by Universal Soup at 04:26 9/3-2020

  after last seasons success in Fast on Wheels we decided to divert our investments into the then LO1 Anh Sang Cuc. With his Good Hill potential and after that maxing up his Small Technique we were sure we would be able to compete with him in FoW, but also in other cups and tours. We are now in division four and even thought it not unreasonable to be able to competing the Edmonton Red Deer Tour with him.
  Unfortunately, as did so many before him, Anh Sang Cuc's body did not agree and showed us another classical case of Premature MaxiCalculation. Therefore our former LO1 is now still a LO1 with some hill ability.
  Hô Quoc Hong has completed almost one full real year in our team. The plan was to retire him after exactly one full year but transfer plans made it necessary to change this and retire him 2 days early.
  We would like to thank him for all his service as our starting captain. He helped develop our team to what it is now and trained our youngsters and guided them in the world of cycling.
  We are happy to announce that Hô Quoc Hong will remain with the team and after a short break will pick up a job as trainer and continue his work to develop our team even further.
  Thanks Hô Quoc Hong!
   Transfer News
  Luckily our manager has been reacting pro active and we have acquired the services of another potential captain. Even though he's a bit of age already and doesn't have a lot of experience yet we have bought the services of Que Nam Hong
  At first he decided to join the team Huba, however he didn't get to race there and regretted this decision quickly. We offered him an escape route to join our team and we are glad he took it. Being one of the most talented Vietnamese riders on the market he's very valuable to a Vietnamese only team.
  As a born climber his destiny will be to become a climber or tour rider, depending on the results of his training.
  CL: Very good
  DH: Average
  HL: Small
  SP: Small
  FR: Average
  CB: Small
  TT: Good
  TQ: Good
  The South African Revenue Service or S.A.R.S. in short decided to sponsor our team. This will help us to develop our talents quicker, so we feel blessed with that. For now the infrastructure for sponsors are a bit underdeveloped. Our manager is doing all he can to improve it, but for now it means we'll have to go to the office and pick up the daily check manually. But hey, who can complain about 2k a day.
  Until next time.

  Well personally I have no issue with it being a real entity. But indeed, the South African Revenue Services is very real, it is the national tax authority in South Africa. People and businesses pay their tax to them.
  It might be a problem I guess.

Universal Soup at 10:21 9/3-2020
  They're supposed to be fictional companies. I'll message Nick or the Don and I guess it will be removed as sponsor. SARS ingame means Super AllRound Sprinter HL+SP+FR+TQ

World Communism Team at 10:12 9/3-2020
  Update, I just got SARS signed as a sponsor as well. So I am forgiving them in-game. IRL that's a different story...

World Communism Team at 10:07 9/3-2020
  LMAO, are you freakin' serious ? SARS is your team sponsor ? Like they legit owe me money IRL. What business do they have funding you ??? I might have to take this to a sport arbitration tribunal. This is hilarious.

  Good luck training Que Nam Hong!

USA Postal Services at 05:45 9/3-2020
  Good luck. You should consider hiring guys with better names. They sound like babies' first words ;)
