[PCT] Podium Ambition
TheManxMissile
The Great Big "Stability?" Post


We began in the CT in 2013. Promoted up, survived by the graces of the MGUCI, relegated down and promoted up again. Now with our PCT survival via an 18th place finish in many ways this is the first season of stability for Podium Ambition!
Our sponsors have all been satisfied by the season, delivering a few good wins and a reasonable final ranking. McLaren and Hincapie joined this season and will remain onboard. Antofagasta and Avanti are very happy, as is Shimano and Whooshh. Mount Gay Rum are extactic at the results from Matthews. MCB seem satisfied but would still like a bigger African representation outside Le Court.

The only concerned sponsor is Jumeirah Group. We have no middle-eastern riders and very little performance in the area. We're in some discussions with potential new partners. Both are based out of Macau, the Macau Jockey Club and Sociedad de Turismo e Diversoes de Macau. The later being the more interesting option for the team. Although we're undecided at this exact moment, a final decision will come ahead of Transfers.

On the riders front, it's a touch too early to say for certain. We're very open about Marcus needing a wage cut to stay. Julian and Momchil come back from Loans so we need to make a little space. Luckily one other rider is declining this year and is an obvious candidate. And we don't need to maintain our non-existant Time Trial unit unless he can again win a National Title.
Nothing specific there to stay inside transfer rules, but if you're desparate enough you can probably figure out who we're talking about.

So that will leave very little room for recruitment. We could see a growth in our African representation to keep MCB happy. We could boost our South American division to help Antogfagasta. Bring in a new Asian sponsor and we'll need to give them a marketable rider. Whatever happens it'll be a low-key off-season, this team can clearly survive the PCT so now we just need to add one or two pieces to push up the table!

Big squad of talents here, Caleb Ewan Cool

It was a pleasure having Robov with us this season he did some great work!

@tsmoha - He went to the Giro this year so he's happy with that PT taste for now, and would much rather focus on bringing Podium Ambition up to the PT Wink
Or you can throw buckets and buckets of cash at me Pfft

@viking - 10 level ups and 3 who didn't, transfers was very talent heavy! Ewan obviously stands out and we've got no-one that interesting coming through now.
Happy Robov could help keep you safe!

The Great Big "Is This pre-Financial Crash?" Post


Is it 2008 again? Because we're going to be sponsored by Woolworths! Although, not the Woolworths that was the beloved home of free pick&mix sweets and cheap kids halloween costumes. No, we've signed a deal with Woolworths! The South African/Australian one!

Jumeirah Group, as expected, will be stepping aside. A lack of local riders and interest made any future relationship impossible to maintain and we part ways on good terms after two years. Woolworths step into the space for what could be a very long-term deal! With the continued support for Australian riders like Caleb Ewan and Ricki Nelson there is good marketing opportunity down under. And with gaps opening up fast in the African area via the dissolution of Eritel and Project: Africa, and the previous loss of Kenya Airways, and the relegation of Haute Route (sorry!), making moves seems obvious.

This may well guide our off-season movements, driving a focus towards Australia and Africa. Don't expect massive overhaul as we're happy with 90% of the team going forwards. But as we will need one or two riders might as well go for ones that'll please the backers.

The Great Big "Offseason Pre-Planning" Post


Time to talk about the off-season in more details here at Podium Ambition. A little early? Well yes and no. Yes because nothing official is allowed to be talked about and No because we won't be here otherwise. T3A management won't be available for almost the entire off-season, hence we're getting things sorted out early.

Sponsors have already been confirmed. We're adding Woolworths to replace Jumeirah Group and that boost our African + Oceanic influences. We can say the jersey won't be changing, keeping the design and colors from the past few seasons. the_hoyle is again on creation duties and there will be a proper presentation at some stage.

Onto riders. Who will be staying? Who will be going? Well we can't be too specific for legal reasons. But we will finish renewals with 19/20 riders, at least that's our aim. That means there will be a few guys released into the wild for someone to pick up from the Free Agency.

Well we can't rely on the same riders to keep us safe again, that will be a big risk and not one worth taking at this stage in the teams existence. But exiting renewals with 19/20 riders doesn't leave us scrambling around either. Keeping with the teams philosophies and history expect recruitment to focus on a new younger Cobbles specialist or another Sprinter to ease the pressure on Caleb. Possibly a Puncheur to work with Yates if the other two don't pan out.
It's a very simple plan paying faith in the riders who got us promoted and kept us safe. With the gains from our youngsters this should serve us well going forwards. Especially after another good talent intake in 2017.

Oh, and as we're keeping the team name and division, we're going to keep the same HQ rolling as well!

Guess what we're going to leave you all with for the summer? That's right, a hot chick gif!
