Season 52 midterm test

Written by Universal Soup at 17:00 30/3-2020

  School has opened again in the virtual world of OCM. Despite reality classes have started again in the digital world of cycling. Our team has failed in the first tests earlier this season, with a low max of Anh Sang Cuc jeopardizing our entire season goal ( developing him and trying to win FoW with him ).
  Luckily for us we have acquired some new students for the Universal Soup academy. We could've only done so because of our sponsors the South African Revenue Service and Practice High, thanks! So let us present to you our new riders.
  Que Nam Hong who was first recruited by Huba and later transferred to our team for the hefty sum of 65.000$. He has started his first lessons. We are hoping to find another co-sponsor to help advance his training a little bit quicker.
  CL: Very good
  DH: Average
  HL: Small
  SP: Small
  FR: Average
  CB: Small
  TT: Good
  TQ: Good
  Ho-Dac Ngoc Luan already longer on the team and already having had some training to help us out in the mountains. He has had his training stall a bit due to a lack of funds and his age still being younger than the others.
  CL: Good
  DH: Small
  HL: Average
  SP: Good
  FR: Average
  CB: Small
  TT: Small
  TQ: Small
  Vu Tuan Xuan has been trained in our main priority hills. For now his training will be moved to the background a bit because he lacks the true potential. Eventually the plan is to train his CL though so he will perform better in the hills and can help our new trainees in the mountains where they are better at.
  CL: Good
  DH: None
  HL: Good
  SP: Small
  FR: Small
  CB: None
  TT: None
  TQ: Good
  Cang Ngoc Hung is our latest addition to the team. He will be trained first due to his age. All current sponsor and race income will go mainly to his development so he will hopefully be able to race for us soon.
  CL: Very good
  DH: Average
  HL: Small
  SP: Small
  FR: Good
  CB: Average
  TT: None
  TQ: None
  With this last addition our classes are full and we will not be accepting any new members any time soon. We are hoping to save some money in the scouting department this way so that we can spend more on training. Now let us pray for high AV.
  Kind regards,

  Thanks Frank. AnnoDomini, yes it is risky but it's mainly two trainees now. The other ones are a sort of back up. With my level of maxing riders ( av45 is the highest so far ) I will finish them soon, haha.
  I would like to have one more sponsor for extra training income. And I don't mind training until they are a bit older, especially in this phase where talent is hard to be found for a small

AnnoDomini at 23:11 30/3-2020
  Yeah, good luck with trainings, although not sure if training so many riders in the same time is a good idea...

  So nice to see you develop this all Vietnam team!
  Good luck with the training of your students.
