Hi everyone!
Welcome to the presentation of our new team. We are proud that we’ve found two great sponsors to help us, at least the next three years, and maybe for a longer time. Our main sponsor is Hot Wheels. Hot Wheels is an American business which produces toy cars. Our secondary sponsor is Porsche. Porsche is a German business and they produces cars. These sponsors are new in cycling. They start with a small sponsor amount, but that will raise when we ride good results. We have fourteen riders of different countries, but the most are coming from the United States. Our goal is to grow and we want to be a team like Team HTC-Highroad. They were one of the best teams of the last few years. We want to train young cyclers of different countries to be such that good as they were. It’s also important for us to have riders of non-cycling countries. We may already say that we have a rider who’s coming from Hong Kong. That’s an example of a non-cycling country. We want to have more riders of such that countries in the future. Our team kit is special made for our team. This season we’re going to ride with this shirt:

I started this story to improve my English. My English isn’t very good so I try to improve it.

My computer has not a very good graphic card, so I have to play with the lowest graphics. The screenshots won’t be very beautiful but I try my best.

This is my first story so feedback is welcome!

Julian Heckel

i1352.photobucket.com/albums/q650/Jussie4/Renners/HeckelJulian_zps6535556a.jpg

These are the sponsor goals for this season. We’ll try to achieve them, although some of them are almost not realizable.

Wow, that squad, it is... Awful. Wink

Good luck with the story, it's interesting!

Don't really understand why you have that many nationalities, btw? Grin

sutt86: Thanks! Yeah, it's great stuff. Smile

Jesleyh: You see an awful squad, I see a bunch of young talents. Wink Thanks! Well, we want to be the new HTC-Highroad, and they had many riders of different countries too. Wink And I like to have riders of different countries in my team. Wink It has to be an international team and not a team of one country.

admirschleck: They are weak, but not too weak. It'll be difficult to fight for wins, but at least we can go for for example a mountain jersey. I see it as a challenge to ride with a bad team like this. Wink

You could've signed for example 3 young existing talents with f.e. 68 in their best skill.
I know, I took on a challenge like this as well once(not a story though), and it looks good at the start, but you lose motivation.
Also, those flat stats are gonna freak you out at a certain moment.

Hope it doesn't happen with you, since the idea seems good Wink

Jesleyh: Well, I was thinking of a team with real riders, but I just wanted to have one with young talents. And I'd like to have a weak team, because I thought that my motivation would be there for a longer time than when I would ride with better riders. And for now I haven't lost my motivation yet. I already started to write reports to see if I could keep my motivation, and now I'm already at the middle of march. Wink

The first races in January are rode. Let's get a look at the results! Haussler and Durbridge are the champions of Australia, while Bauer and Sergent were the best riders in New-Zealand. They were in both races first and second, but in other rank. And Castroviejo is the (unexpected) winner of the Santos Tour Down Under.

Participating in San Luis? Tough!
Which DB are you using, btw?

Jesleyh: I'm using the 2013 database of Atlantius, special converted to PCM 11 but with the stages of 2012, from de PCM Daily database. So actually it's a 2013 db with 2012 stages. Wink
 
Jakstar22
Looking good. Good luck with the first stage.

Good luck, you're going to have a challenging season but it will be interesting to see how the riders develop!

Jakstar22: Thanks!

fcancellara: Thanks! It's going to be difficult, but that's what I wanted. Wink I'm also very curious to see how the riders will develop, and that's also a part which I like of this team.
 
The Rider
Good luck.

I reckon the best tactic for this story is in the first few years to barely do any races each season, so after a few seasons when stats are developed the team can be competitive Grin.

Or:

The team could immediately sign one or two experienced riders which the team can build around so there is a chance of some great results.

Hope this won't interfere with quality jersey design Pfft
 
MrUfo87
The Rider: Thanks! Well, these two options were also my ideas, but I'll see where I'll get. No, I don't think the jerseys will be badder because of this story, so don't worry. Wink
