News article for SKY.daily, April Fools Day 2015

Welcome to the New Look

Please get stuck into the conversations as some of you already have been doing before the official launch. Enjoy yourselves and let your inner Sky love flow free and unfettered!!!

Thomas Favorite for Flanders

Geraint Thomas had an amazing three days in Flanders this weekend. He began on Friday with a destructive E3 Prijs. Easily following the attacks on the cobbled bergs he was in the right group that stole away to contest victory. On the final run in he was no match for the roasted Sagan or the tired Stybar. Arguably Geraints biggest win yet, almost certainly his best!

Sunday brought winds and rain to Gent-Wevelgem. Big G was up to the task once again as he made the winning breakaway move. Mother Nature tried to stop him by blowing him off the bike but such is his all-round skill he powered back to the group with minimal help from the team cars. The hesitance from Etixx allowed Paolini away before the ever gentlemanly Thomas allowed Terpstra to take 2nd place as he settled for 3rd.

Going towards the weekends major showdown in Flanders Geraint Thomas is the obvious favorite. He will be man marked all day long, so is this a chance for Stannard or even the legendary Wiggins to slip away to win? Tune in on Sunday to find out!

Brand New Management Game!

SportingNonsense has come up with the brilliant and unique idea to run a PCM based Management Game. We've already had 11 teams created ready to take each other on in this battle of wits. The DB is unconfirmed at this moment but expect it to be the brilliant PCMSky Stat Upgrade DB combined with the British Calendar Update!

Thread of the Week

In a week where Sky have been as dominant as usual the E3 Prijs 2015 thread comes close to it, full of support for G. The upheaval of Riis is sure to bring action back to the Tinkoff Doping/Hate thread. Then there is the brilliant CONQUER THE WORLD WITH TEAM SKY (CQTWWTSKY) game just starting up. But this weeks Thread of the Week is Café Brailsford: The Sky's The Limit the all new place for general Sky chat!

Best April 1st Prank ever.

It gets better every year. Chapeau, my friends, chapeau!
#35 | clamel on 01. April 2015 13:20
Agree with Strydz.
But nice prank just the same.
It looks horrible and almost make you leave for good....Embarassed
#36 | KenL on 01. April 2015 13:37
This is the WORST yet best "April fools Day" joke yet by PCM.
I knew it was a joke right away and kudos to all the work that went into it, but I still wanted to throw-up my breakfast when I saw it. :lol:
#37 | lakebeach on 01. April 2015 13:41
Haha! Grin
#38 | Naxela on 01. April 2015 13:52
I was so confused ugh, just suprised Jesleyh didn't turn it into a Kelderman fansite!Pfft
#39 | Maddox on 01. April 2015 14:08
Seriously, this is ridiculous.
#40 | MARSUPILAMI on 01. April 2015 14:42
At the moment I am quite tired of this new version of the site, and praying for the original one...
#41 | Stromeon on 01. April 2015 15:21
This is amazing! Pfft So many details... like the bar on the right-hand side of the page, clearly a lot of work gone into this, a big thanks from me, it's really brightened up my day! Wink
#42 | jseadog1 on 01. April 2015 15:49
Agree with #39, but this is super cool! Pfft
#43 | DiCyc on 01. April 2015 16:53
Best since Kaggerstad?
#44 | weirdskyfan64 on 01. April 2015 16:57
How long did this take you? Excellent- an April Fools done obviously, but also correctly.
#45 | Smowz on 01. April 2015 17:12
Funny stuff and incredible work - but unfortunately pretty average April fools for me as it is so completely obviously a spoof site to regular users.

Well done SN, TMM and guys who were involved Smile
#46 | Forever the Best on 01. April 2015 17:42
#47 | murao22 on 01. April 2015 17:49
Great, nice work guys! Please keep this version of website Pfft
#48 | Jesleyh on 01. April 2015 18:17
Well, wouldn't anything be obvious on 1 April by Daily? I mean I think everyone(that is here long enough to know that we do a joke every year) expected something at least.

I'd say we did well, looking at the general opinion Pfft
#49 | Forever the Best on 01. April 2015 18:37
#48 What were the jokes in the previous years?
#50 | Jesleyh on 01. April 2015 18:43
2014: PCMdaily co-sponsors Cult Energy
2013: Not sure, wasn't it this one where PCMdaily fooled another PCM site with Fake PCM 2013 news?
2012: FBI takes down PCMdaily
2011: ''Friday'' rickroll when you enter PCMdaily

There was also one where Waghlon deleted the MG forums. I liked that one.
#51 | SSJ2Luigi on 01. April 2015 18:47
2014: PCM.daily co-sponsership Cult Energy
2013: NOTHING!!.

wasn't around when before but from what I heard they once released a db where Mads Kaggestad had 85 in all stats and everybody else had 50. they made the man-game forum dissapeared once, they once made the site appear to be closed by an american agency. they once sent a e-mail looking to be from Cyanide to PCM.Norway, revealing some "high" tech new features.
#52 | Forever the Best on 01. April 2015 18:50
#53 | Smowz on 01. April 2015 19:10
All other years saw plenty fooled irc - I was actually getting excited about the Cult Energy one and I was like oh noes with the FBI thing.

The good thing about this sky thing is users can be in on the joke. Everyone knows the 1,000,000th time a joke is told is the funniest right? Smile

Let's all pretend to be the Sky fanboys - not that many actually exist bar myself and Alak of course Smile
#54 | koreksiak3 on 01. April 2015 19:35
Great job guys, best joke i have seen today Wink
#55 | lluuiiggii on 02. April 2015 03:19
Well, a pity that the 1st of April ends a few hours earlier in Europe than down here Pfft Just had to check the screens. Yes, it's an obvious prank but some of the posts are just so funny, like Bushwackers saying that Pate is the most useless rider ever :lol: And of course extremely well done, lots of details, must have taken some time to do but certainly one of the best April fools pranks Grin

#48 I'm with Smowz. Not all of them were obvious - I actually believed in Cult Energy until reading the comments, and I was certain that I was mis-clicking whatever was that the Friday song was always popping up Pfft

But you missed by far with the 'fooling another site', that was in 2010 Pfft Funnily, out of the 4 main "features" of the game, 2 are actually going to be in PCM15 (for those who haven't seen it: https://pcmdaily.c...admore=512)
