[CT] Volcanica - Fox / Calendar & Goals
redordead
I really like the signing of Chaves, he's perfect for CT Smile

Add to that Amador and Boivin and I think you're in for a very strong debut season Smile

Honestly, I find it hard to believe that this is a newly founded team! You built it up right from the start with a great regional focus, and you found the perfect riders for this undertaking! I'm really looking forward to see your team racing, especially in the mountains! I haven't took a close look at all CT teams to be honest, but I wouldn't be surprised to see you pretty high up by the end of the year Smile Cool team, congrats!

@Eden95 I am very happy Brenes joined my team. And indeed I am looking forward to see him race in a tandem with Amador. Smile

@redordead I am excited about my team and the season ahead. Hopefully some good results would result from this too. Smile

@Fabianski Thank you! The objective is to build a strong Central American team that could challenge the PT someday. We will see how this season goes but I'll take it step by step in achieving that objective.

2021 ROSTER

thumbs.gfycat.com/EasygoingWeightyGrouse-size_restricted.gif

With the transfer window coming to a close it’s time to look over the roster of Volcanica – Fox for the upcoming season. Although, before we do that, we must inform you of a tense situation which emerged during the said transfer period. According to a source close to the team, the start of a transfers was pretty hectic around Volcanica = Fox’s headquarters. To top the chaos of phones ringing, computers working relentlessly and frantic activity there were a few difficult moments when the internet connection dropped or the electric power went down. During one such times the team manager, without the possibility of consulting his transfer files, hit the panic button and placed 2 extra bids on the riders he liked. However, those bids, which proved successful in the end, pushed the team over the cap limit. To rectify the problem DarkWolf had to rescind unilaterally 2 contracts, paying a total fine of 195,000 in the process. That didn’t sit well with the sponsors and to make amends, according to the same source, the team manager suggested a pay cut for himself. Therefore, effective immediately, the basic salary is reduced by half for his first year of contract.

Getting back to our roster, Volcanica – Fox acquired 19 riders for its first season with an average age of 27.42 years. The manager’s endearment for hills and mountains is reflected in the line-up, most of the cyclists display a preference for such terrains. The management believes the team’s main objectives and philosophies, to highlight the Central American cycling and to offer a medium for the development and growth of young riders, are well covered, 14 cyclists (73.68% of the team) originate from Central America, 9 of them (47.37%) hailing from our home nation, while 7 riders (36.84%) are 23 years old or younger. The North and South American continents are represented by 3 cyclists, 1 from Colombia, 1 from Canada and 1 from the United States and to complete the roster 2 conquistadors are coming again to the New World. This time, however, it’s not to pillage the region but to plunder the MG circuit of its gold and instead of bearing firearms and deadly diseases they bring cycling skills to face their opponents on the road, not in the name of the Spanish king but for Volcanica – Fox’s prestige. Overall, the team’s management is of the strongly opinion that they built a competitive squad while at the same time maintaining a firm grip on the principles they abide by.

Enjoy promotion! I think it should be almost a certainty with this team.

Thanks! I received a lot of such encouragments and they make me really excited. But I'm trying not to get ahead of myself. Smile

I hate getting put on a pedestal before the season even starts myself, but I do agree that you've done an amazing job and would deserve to get rewarded.

Even just the Costa Rican core of your team would be strong enough for a good final position in CT, but the addition of Chaves and Boivin on top of that elevates your roster well beyond that.

I wish you good luck in your first CT season! Smile
 
Nemolito
Just gonna copy what everyone said: great job Grin

Promotion is definitely a possibility with this squad, and looking at your regional focus and the way you keep up your HQ's both here in MG and in ICL in a very nice and enjoyable way with great texts/stories, I really hope you get it.

Also love the fact that five of my suggested riders got a contract at your team, I'll be following them from closeby!

See you in the Spilak vs. Amador races Smile

@cio93 Thank you! I hope I can keep the core of Central American riders and even build constantly a team made exclusively from such cyclists. Of course, I have to help add some in the future riders suggestion too. Smile

@Nemolito Thank you very much! As I love stories so much I try to create one too, besides building the team. Working on these 2 together makes me like the game even more and I am really happy you like it. I hope to keep it up as much as possible because I enjoy writing these posts a lot. Smile

NC JERSEYS

With the roster finalized and the plans for 2021 firmly in place it is time for Volcanica – Fox to boast about the 3 national champions within its ranks, Gregory Brenes (National RR Champion of Costa Rica), Andrei Amador (National TT Champion of Costa Rica) and Erick Herrera (National RR and TT Champion of El Salvador). To do that, the team feels that their excellent achievements need to be highlighted and the champions should adorn distinct jerseys which acknowledge their performances. DarkWolf went back to the drawing table and designed the jerseys our 3 champions will wear during the upcoming season. We have the great pleasure of presenting them here.

The NCs (and the jersey in general) looks really cool. I especially like the front, hope it will be visible in some celebration screenshots during the season. Smile
I'm impressed how you built the team with so much regional focus and at the same time being one of the best CT teams around.

Thank you very much! Now I'm having headaches with the race planning. I made 3 drafts already and I'm still not fully satisfied, but that happens to me every time in PCM, ICL and now MG. Until I finally convince myself it is as good as it can get without me fretting about it. Smile

CALENDAR AND GOALS

i.pinimg.com/474x/75/88/29/758829ca968ee5266bac00227ba0b026--bike-humor-safety-first.jpg

With the season drawing closer and closer the activity around the Volcanica – Fox cycling team resembles that of a beehive. Bikes are dusted, chains oiled, and tires checked for pressure. Kits are washed and cleaned, shoes brushed until they shine and helmets adjusted. Gels and massage oils are stocked, energy drinks and bars carefully deposited and relieving syrups for sore throats provided to the coaches yelling encouragements (or the occasional curses). Insurances are signed, plane tickets reserved and accommodations secured. In the management offices a race calendar went up on the wall and the planners are worked and reworked with frenzy determination. Volcanica - Fox will compete in 39 races this season, on all the continents of the world (except Antarctica of course), which is one of the many features that makes cycling such an exciting sport and brings much joy around the team’s facilities. Most of the 39 races are categorized C2 and C2HC, but the team will also compete in the upper echelons of C1 and HC courses. True, it is only 1 HC race, but Volcanica – Fox managed to gain an invitation to the Barbados Cycling Festival in its desire to showcase the team’s colors in the neighboring Caribbean region.

For the 2021 season the team will spare no effort in achieving the best results possible, while relentlessly pursuing the accomplishment of its main goals. The sponsors wish for a presence in top 10 of the Continental rankings and 10 stage victories throughout the season, to highlight the value and their backing of this Central American cycling project. To validate the said project further Volcanica – Fox sets its sight on winning the home race of Clasico San Jose and on a strong performance at USA Pro Cycling Challenge, the latter as part of the sponsors’ desire to show the project they support in the country where their headquarters are based. With the historical and linguistic connection to Spain and the presence of 2 Spanish riders within the squad Euskal Bizikleta is also one of the team’s goals. A remarkable performance here is believed to bring awareness to this project and its sponsors on the Old Continent too.

It couldn't be otherwise, it's our home race after all. I am certain our fans will be all over the road and hopefully we can give them something to cheer for right out of the gates. Smile
