World Communism Team: Season 54 Part I

Written by World Communism Team at 21:09 26/8-2020

  World Communism Team’s season started off at new zealand Rotorua - Whakarewarewa (U23) where rwanda Michel Ngabo and the youngest comrades on the roster hoped that they could open the season with a win for the team at U23 level.
  
  
  Unfortunately, rwanda Michel Ngabo did not have the legs on the North Island hills. But despite his off day the nyarwanda man was able to cling to an honourable 4th place.
  
  
  Next on, the team flew to the Caribbean to take part in the saint lucia Tour of Saint Lucia. On the volcanic slopes of the island, ethiopia Addis Gebreselassie was able to achieve an encouraging 5th place, falling a little bit short from completing a podium that could have been all-African. With namibia Jamuovandu Smit of namibia Goege Team taking the win, and south Africa Gifford Davey of south Africa Team Watchers taking second place.
  
  
  Largely the same squad left from the Windward Islands to move all the way to Scandinavia to enter norway Gjøvik Rundtur. This time ethiopia Addis Gebreselassie had some more luck and crossed the line in 3rd position. The second ever Division 5 official result for the rider and for the team. A result that was far better than expected and took Chairman uMaliyasi off guard. Scoring so many more points in the last two races than expected, meant that the World Communism Team would no longer be in Division 6 for early season objective europe Cesko-Slovensky Pohar, putting on hold the long time plan to trigger top form on several riders for this cup.
  
  
  And forcing the team to rethink the entire season plan.
  
  
  Shortly after this race, a number of the riders not having participated in it, went down under to attempt a breakaway attack in Australia Port Macquarie - Port Macquarie and work on their form and team spirit. A breakaway attempt that turned unsuccessful.
  
  
  The leadership of the team then took the obvious decision not to trigger Top Form without a worthy objective to run for. And to keep riders Top Form ready until further notice. While racing week in and week out for points, to aim as high as possible and not drop below Division 5 at any point in the season.
  
  
  To start off with this new season plan, the team set base in brazil Brazil, to race in Prova Ciclística Estrada Real with hopes that tanzania Kuumba Rusesabagina could prove strong enough on the steep hills to follow the best punchers, and use his superior finishing speed to contest for a result.
  
  
  Galvanized by his recent nomination for the Best U23 Rider of S53 award, the boy from the Tanganyika tried to stay ahead, but unfortunately for him the opposition proved too strong and he could only cross the line at a frustrating 10th place, just shy of a point scoring finish.

  Nice report, success with your young team :)

  LOL!! The accidental TF triggers!! LOL!!

World Communism Team at 10:04 27/8-2020
  Yes I think that's reasonable. That would also help not having to bench an entire squad of 6 at the same time to recharge the TF.
  
  I am thinking of going 3 by 3, if I can manage to stop triggering by accident.

  over the whole season rather then an two week period. Unless of course you are going after a tour win.

Canadian Nippon at 00:44 27/8-2020
  Similar situation with the TF and it hard to say congrats on the results when it wrecks plans for the future but I think trying to have TF ready to trigger then planning the trigger by DP to 90+ might be a good idea as it means you can trigger quickly in less then a week before an event or two. I also think triggering only partial teams might be better then a whole team as you get benefits over a
