How Well Do You Know Daily?
The week kicked off over on Skype but quickly the hot topic made it's way to rest of the community via Cafe Pedro. SportingNonsense updated the PCM.Daily Most Posts Ever sporcle quiz. If you don't know, this is quiz where you have to guess the names of the members with the most posts ever made on the site. The original version was quite outdated so now here's the updated one. Most people scoring in the 20's, can you do better?
But if that's not for you, why not try the Most Posts This Year quiz, also made by SN. A lot more up-to-date and current names in this quiz, although scores were mostly still in the 20's. Just a fun little thing to try out.
World Championships week! Plenty of opportunities to bet, we've already had the Mens TTT done but pently still to come. Currently take part in our first ever Womens bet, for their ITT, but of course we'll be bringing bets for the Mens ITT and Road Race, the Womens Road Race and probably some of the U23 and Junior events as well. Then of course join in all the discussion in the UCI World Championships 2015 - Richmond, 20-27 Sept thread, discussing each and every event across the week.
Plus let's not forget other races or disciplines. It's getting colder here in Europe which means Cyclo-Cross Season 2015 - 2016 is here to be discussed if you like getting muddy in Belgium. And of course all the usual Transfer, News and Other Races chat and updates.
Pro-Tour is still dominated by Le Tour. 18 Stage down and perhaps the biggest fight left could be for the Points Jersey, but not between the two riders you might expect. And of course the GC could still change shape in the concluding stages. I'm trying hard not to spoil things here, go and read for yourself.
The PCT has been highlighted by the Tour of Bulgaria. A dramatic final day saw Florentino Marquez steal the GC by just a meagre 3 seconds for BoI. After the climbing fest it's the sprinters up next in Denmark for the PCT. The CT hit the tw-day Tour of East Java where Julien Berard crushed things for Fablok-Dunlop, way ahead of his nearest competiton. The CT is currently now racing Slovenie.
Other Games Summary
ICL16 - Signup is still open! You can still sign-up for Bikex's Story Game. There's a huge number of players now and this is easily one of the biggest and best games on the site. Still going very strong heading towards it's 3rd season, huge congrats to Bikex for all the work and success of the game.
Controversy and technical issues marred the rFactor league. fjhoekie claimed victory in Bathurst but after two complete server resets and a race only 40% length of what was planned several people never made the grid. Still, a win is a win and the circus rolls on to Hungary.
Snow and Ice are dawning on CX:AND. Rasterhoff provided shocks and as the season hit's roughly mid-way there's a load more excitement and quality to come from everyone involved.
Thread of the Week
I'm not able to pick out just one thread this week, so i'm giving the accolade to the entire PCM15: Graphics section! Currently there is a plethora of great designers churningout high quality jerseys every single day. Just massive thanks to all of you who put in such hard work.
