It pays to be prepared; and Dave Morrison and Malcolm Murdoch got caught out, whilst David Tobin was unlucky with a Techanical. No such issues for Lisa and Brett though!
Malcolm was making his debut on any e-Racing platform, he’d never done online riding before and got caught out in the download timing, joining late with time needed for the map download meaning he missed the start time and started late. David Tobin’s internet dropped out whilst Dave Morrison, inexcusably, forgot to set his power to ‘Pro-Power’ went back and tried to start again but it was too late to change and, consequently, did the race at a power disadvantage. We thank all the other riders who raced in Test Race Five too. From now on we will rename races to EER (Equalized E-Race) as we move these events up from testing to practice level in our Equalized E-Racing Revolution on CADEsport. We will keep no corner crashes for the time-being.
Brett Smith and Lisa Snell had got their acts together finishing third and first respectively with Frank Garcia taking second spot. Lisa went off fast at the start and fought all the way to hold off Frank and Brett for her second win in two weeks, well done Lisa.
One thing we learned from this is that you can’t draft people on different laps to you, as discovered by virtue of the afflicted riders finding themselves a lap behind riding solo! It’s such a great voyage of discovery on this exciting new platform, why not join us one Monday at 7.30pm UK Time?
GET IN NOW, AND SEE FOR YOURSELF JUST HOW EXCITING THIS FORMAT IS. SIGN UP FOR MONDAY 21st NOVEMBER’s RACE
Next Monday, 21st November we go again on CADEsport at 7.30pm UK Time
A 10km race, flat but with many turns on the Water Village course set in New York. We have set it with no corner crashes again and you must set your power to Pro Power just before joining the race to get the benefit of power equalisation (don’t make Dave’s mistake!). There is a slight 1% easterly wind to contend with at points, which should add to the fun.
Incidentally, we recommend the Water Village course as a great place to practice cornering in CADEsport with its tight bends. We will, in the future, include crashing on corners but not for race EER1 on Monday 21st November.
