World Communism Team: Season 52 Part IV wrap up

Written by World Communism Team at 13:06 11/5-2020

  This last stretch of season 52 for World Communism Team started in switzerland Interlaken Grand Prix, but this race in the Alps was only approached as a practice race for zambia Yoweri Ayesu and some other members of the squad to build up their race shape, and as a chance for usual teammates to join the breakaway and try for a result of their own.
  
  
  The same went with malaysia Dungun Sprint with largely the same squad for largely the same purpose.
  
  
  While none of these races produced a surprise breakaway result, these races filled their purpose and did a lot to get riders in better shape and pump the team spirit.
  
  
  Following that, the team made its way to iceland Iceland to race on the volcanic slopes of the Hólmavík Grand Prix, this time competitively, with ambition to score points and possibly to hit a still elusive Division 6 podium. The hope of World Communism Team were reduced very early on, as it became obvious that captain ethiopia Addis Gebreselassie was having an off day, and would struggle to contest for a result.
  
  
  Amazingly, even with an off day, thanks to tremendous work from his teammates, several of them untrained, and particularly thanks to a south africa Farouk Dingi in Top Form, Addis Gebreselassie was able to hold on to 9th place. And get some OCM points and a bit of prize money for the team’s budget. OCM points which were much needed as the team was only holding on to a spot in Division 6 by a small margin at the time.
  
  
  To close the curtain on season 52, World Communism Team was entered into china Wangdu GrandPrix with zambia Yoweri Ayesu as the main man, shooting for a result. However this ended disastrously, as four out of the six riders in the line-up had off days including the captain, who could not manage to get even remotely close to the top 9.
  
  
  Overall this season was a little bit below expectation. The objective was to take at least a Division 7 win and/or a Division 6 podium. This was actually achieved with a Division 7 win late in the season, so the targeted minimum was reached.
  
  But besides this, with only 10 top nine finishes including 4 results, of which only 1 was a win, the team feels that the season was a little bit underwhelming despite the few highlights.
  
  
  Objectives for season 53 are being decided currently and will be communicated very shortly.

  Not a bad finish to the season for your team with the win and the podium but I am also sure you will be stronger next season.
