The CADE Brigade Crusade into 2023 starts here … steer yourself towards the action faction, time to move on from the Hamster Wheel! Monday 2nd January at 7.30pm (UK Time) ….. Race VEER7

VR e-Racing is moving forward and Orange Hamster Wheelers might want to start looking beyond riding around corners at ridiculous speeds whilst looking to earn enough points for a new pair of sunglasses for their avatar. There are great alternatives out there such as Rouvy with its real life videos, RGT which has Magic Roads and corner controls and then there is the new kid on the block with the radical advances that are going to take e-Racing up a level…. CADEsport.

What CADEsport is doing is a quantum leap, and you can still ride for free as it Beta Tests … get in there don’t be at the rear, be a pioneer!

CADEsport has various settings and features, they can be adopted or rejected according to taste but we at West London Cycling were so impressed with the vision that we started getting involved with the Beta Test racing. We set our races so that everyone has pro-power whatever their ability. This levels up the race, it’s a better challenge for strong riders (flat-track bullies need not apply) whilst the ordinary folk get a chance to win…. everyone benefits (apart from flat-track bullies of course!).

CADEsport has also introduced steering and braking, this is so absorbing and you need to ride skillfully, which may not suit a lot of Orange Hamster Wheelers. The more adventurous West London Cyclists have embraced this, yes, you may lose a race due to a crash when you took a corner too fast, but it is simply more absorbing and fun than hamster wheeling around a volcano.

It takes a bit of practice, it is going through Beta testing, it’s an adventure and one day you may be able to say that you were one of the pioneers that made it all happen.

So, we had a tricky course last Monday, so we’re back on an easier one this week where you shouldn’t crash on corners (although be careful on the descent at the end of each lap) but you can practice steering by taking the inside line.

It should be fast, three laps of the Lake Bend Course and here’s a preview:

CADEsport are taking e-Racing to new levels, you can steer to choose your lane on the road, or take the inside of a bend. We have factored in a 2kph Westerly wind that will increase resistance when you turn into it, the race is equalized so that everyone has the same power output (choose Pro-Power when joining from the Lobby at the start) such that strong riders are challenged more (which is good for them) and the rest of us actually have a chance of winning …. anyone can win! It’s all about how hard you work.

How you master the braking on corners can be critical. Watch the speedometer at the bottom of your screen, if you go into the red zone on a bend, you’ll crash. We have found it best to brake just before the bend and accelorate out, but we all need to practice and master this new skill. The braking can be controlled from the Companion App on your phone or the Spacebar on your PC keyboard.

With steering, wind effect, crashing, braking and equalized power, this is soooh much more than a trip on the Hamster Wheel you may be currently enjoying. Time to step out of your comfort zone here though, and here’s why:

  1. If you go too fast into corners you will crash and lose a few seconds time delay. You need to master the braking.
  2. You can steer around other riders and choose your line with steering. You can force other riders into obstacles by hogging the line.
  3. A wind factor can be built in so that when riders turn into the wind the resistance becomes harder.
  4. We have set up our races for Equalized E-Racing so that every rider has pro-power and anyone can win. Natural power isn’t going to be enough, you need to work.

Let’s be honest, some of this is going to take you out of your cosy comfort-zone, but we’ve actually find it more exciting (well it can be frustrating too but that’s part of the fun) …. there are new challenges and skills to learn.

Are you still on a hamster wheel, or part of the CADEsport revolution?
