World Communism Team: Season 52 Part III

Written by World Communism Team at 14:28 12/4-2020

  At the beginning of this new period of the season, the bad luck and poor performances continued, and zambia Yoweri Ayesu had another very disappointing race in spain Plasencia - Plasencia.
  
  
  After this the team left from the Iberian Peninsula to set base near the Russian-Finnish border by the Baltic, to enter finland Heim Imatra with the best possible World Communism Team squad for such a all-round race. However this was also not meant to be and with another two off-days in the squad and no good legs, Yoweri Ayesu could not get a top 9 and even finished behind teammate south Africa Xolani Lamola.
  
  
  World Communism Team then entered ukraine Berdichev - Ozerne, without any ambition to beat the sprinters on the day, just hoping for a breakaway to go the distance, to get training points in FR/SP/TQ and to burn DP to get a few riders Top Form ready. As expected, zambia Yoweri Ayesu did not contend for a result, and fellow Zambian zambia Deng Kazilawe of tanzania Team Sahin won the bunch sprint. In this race tanzania Kuumba Rusesabagina had the occasions to race along two of his tanzania Tanzania National Team partners.
  
  
  The same approach was used in the Danube Delta in Romania Tulcea Sprint, where the team was after training and Top Form readiness and after a possible breakaway. But the break was caught, and the team did not get anything from the race.
  
  
  On the very same day, World Communism Team finally narrowly ended a cold run that had been going on for 43 days, when ethiopia Addis Gebreselassie finished at a very modest 9th place on the hills of Luxembourg Grevenmacher - Diekirch, finally scoring 2 OCM points and some prize money for the team.
  
  
  As a confirmation that the curse was finally lifted, on the very next day zambia Yoweri Ayesu also registered points and prize money in botswana The Sleeping Giant of Gaborone with a 9th place of his own despite his low DP. In a race located near the HQ of the team in South Africa and near his native Zambia.
  
  
  ethiopia Addis Gebreselassie then had another bad race in iran The Flight of the Shahbaz and failed to make a top 9 and score a point despite arguably having been a solid outsider for a podium on the day.
  
  
  In Addis Gebreselassie’s following race, World Communism Team was very confident to achieve its season objective and take a Division 7 win on the undulating roads of spain Punta Umbria - Villanuêva de las Cruces. Addis Gebreselassie seemed to be clearly ahead of other entrants on the day and was a very clear favourite for the win.
  Unfortunately, the Ethiopian had yet another off day. He was beaten to the line by big surprise winner Belgium Roger Cleempit, veteran sprinter of Belgium TTT whom we did not think could be a threat on that race. Addis Gebreselassie was still able to take second place despite his off day, but this was no consolation given the circumstances.
  
  
  In the Austria Uttendorf - Matrei in Osttirol classic, World Communism Team had only very modest expectations due to the good quality of the climbers on the start line. And indeed Addis Gebreselassie and the squad could not register a result.
  
  
  At the close of this period, the team was entered into new Zealand Whakataetae o te Ahi ka Ao, a race in which World Communism Team has been a regular entrant for the past few seasons, and where chairman uMaliyasi had decent hopes to finally take a win and achieve this season’s objective.
  
  Unfortunately, comrade ethiopia Addis Gebreselassie could not beat brazil Tobias Pettinato of brazil Vegemight who took the win, and isle of man Csiki Ridersisle of man Irving Iles who snatched 2nd place in Top Form.
  While ethiopia Addis Gebreselassie had to settle for third for the team of the world proletariat.
  
  
  With 30 days left in season 52, World Communism Team is still in search of a victory this season, and is still short of its season objectives.
