World Communism Team: Season 53 Part IV

Written by World Communism Team at 13:55 12/7-2020

  In this new stretch of season 53, the youth of World Communism Team was first entered into Ecuador Vuelta Salinas (U23), with high hope for a result and hopes to possibly scrap a win. Unfortunately for the team of the proletariat, a combination of off days, crashes and mechanicals did not make a result possible. However, tanzania Kuumba Rusesabagina finished the race in 8th position, while rwanda Michel Ngabo came in in 9th position trailing in his wheel to the finish.
  
  
  Shortly after this, tanzania Kuumba Rusesabagina and rwanda Michel Ngabo had the privilege to race against each other on the WT stage while racing for their respective National teams Tanzania and Rwanda in wales Aberystweth - Llanelli (WT).
  
  
  The following two weeks were a series of unlucky races for the team, eritrea Trail of the Abunes, norway Bergen - Os and england Bath - Bournemouth came and went with World Communism Team riders consistently unable to make an impact, with various levels of misfortune plaguing the squad.
  
  
  All this at a time when points scored in Season 52 were about to expire, and the “spectre” (cultural reference) of relegation to Division 7 was again creeping up on the ambitious team in red and gold.
  
  
  Same went with romania Valcea - Sibiu and malta Mgarr - Mellieha even though the team only had garnered hopes to surprise the field in breakaways and did not have riders amongst the favourites.
  
  
  Then came the day to race in germany Friedrichshafen - Ravensburg, the team had put a lot of focus to prepare for this race, and had carefully planned the lead up to it, in order to be in great condition.
  
  
  Finally, the luck turned, and the plan worked wonders, the team put in a more than memorable collective performance, taking control of the race from the front and leaving nothing to chance. ethiopia Addis Gebreselassie deservedly took his first win of the season, the second in Season 53 for World Communism Team and the first ever in Division 6 for the team.
  
  
  Even more remarkable, while assisting Gebreselassie to the finish, south Africa Xolani Lamola crossed the line in 5th position, and tanzania Kuumba Rusesabagina in 7th, registering three riders in the top 9 in a race that the cycling loving working class folks will remember for seasons to come.
  
  
  To win this race, ethiopia Addis Gebreselassie overcame slovenia Tevž Košir of venezuela Team Tachira in second position, and regular rival netherlands Matthijs Zorge of norway Team Arctic in third place.
  
  
  At the beginning of the season the chairman of the team had announced targeting 7 official results, including 2 wins. At this point in the season, 4 results including 2 wins have now been achieve, leaving the team to go after three more official results within the 30 days left in the season.
