Velosipedska News #2

Written by Velosipedska at 19:30 2/4-2020

  Greetings to all, fans, press and other readers. Since the club has reached a couple of important milestones I have decided that a fresh newsletter was in order. We have a new main rider, a new talent, and a couple of results and races to look forward to. Let's get right to it!
   ---TEAM NEWS---
  The main team news consists of several new sources of income. We have opened our very own merchandise shop, so feel free to take a look and get yourself a fancy cycling kit with the great Macedonian flag!
  Furthermore, the first sponsor deals have been made following our strong early presence in the cycling world. Deals with 4s & 9s Training Solutions Weekly, Place Brothers Inc. and Ahnfeldt-Mollerup Sport Management will bring in over 100,000 dollars in the next few weeks. The team would like to thank these sponsors for their faith in our project.
  Summary of our economic position this season:
  Funding: 150,000
  Rider Sales: 158,183
  Prize Money: 107,500
  Jobs: 55,500
  Sponsors: 45,000
  Merchandise: 978
  Team Upgrades: 55,097
  Supplies: 13,200
  Staff: 20,000
  Scouting: 33,000
  Rider Hires: 106,535
  Training: 281,700
  ---RIDER NEWS---
  Our young captain Riste Nikolovski seems to have reached his potential. His training phase is over, so now it is his time to shine as our technical climbing captain. He will be aided by co-captain Gjorgi Beqiri.
  As for new talent, we have started training youngster Metodija Aksentiev. He has been hired from a local talent pool, the staff is delighted to see Macedonian youngsters on the bike. The team has debated training a sprinter for a while, because we wanted to create a climbing team first. In the end we decided that a small country can not be too limited, and every talented rider deserves a place in the main Macedonian cycling squad. If we can not succeed in creating a solid sprinting train for Metodija, it is possible that he is allowed to spread his wings and promote Macedonian cycling elsewhere.
  For now, we will train him to see if he can live up to his strong potential. The first sprint train will rely heavily on the skills of Cedomir Ivanov and, to a lesser extent, Borislav Velovski, who might be a trainee himself one day.
  - Metodija Aksentiev's potentials:
  CL: Average
  DH: Small
  HL: Small
  SP: Incredible
  FR: Good
  CB: Small
  TT: Small
  TQ: None
  ---RACE NEWS---
  Our first ever tour, the Japanese Tour of the Sanreizan has been a learning experience, as we expected. Riste finished 5th in the youth classification, but has enjoyed his first tour, stating that he would love to come back in better form next year.
  After the tour we haven't raced a lot to give our riders some rest. We did get a great result at La Calle Real de Salento, where Riste took 2d and Gjorgi took 3d place.
  The next few days we are aiming for the win at The Flight of the Shahbaz, a technical race that should suit Nikolovski like a glove. But we are mostly looking forward to our first classic appearance at Uttendorf - Matrei in Osttirol. It will be difficult to get a result here, but we are aiming for a top 10 finish with Riste. Hopefully we will be able to see some fans cheering us on in Austria!
  That's all the updates we have for you today, thank you for reading.
  Kind regards,

  Thanks on the feedback to all on this and the previous press release. ArxhangiiliPoznyakax - feel free to copy the template. Cycling teams all have the same marketing agencies after all ;)

ArxhangiiliPoznyakax at 10:26 3/4-2020
  Metodija will become a very interesting sprinter . Too bad he has no TQ but if you manage to train the climbing he is going to be a force to be reckoned with ! Great press releases I might even steal your templates !

Holwerda Cycling at 22:09 2/4-2020
  Good luck with your all Macedonian team. I love it :)
  Riste is a very interesting rider. Not many of them like that.
  And Incredible and Good potential on Metodija... I'm jealous.
