Beating the system - the cycling commuting section
So when i last posted here i was thinking "i LOOK like top of the food chain but i'm not going to be taking any serious roadies" and then commuting on Saturday morning i managed to stick a suicidal solo breakaway from a big group. Question is, do i get 1 point or 30? .
I won't mention the group of 6 40-50yr olds who absolutely blew me away near the start of my ride.

Ok, sadly to say I lost a point yesterday on the way home, fellow roadie shaved legs ahead of me on Swanston street at flinders street station. Saw him, targeted him and off I went after him. Only problem was he saw me coming, and just floored it... caught up with him again on St Kilda road, stuck with him for about a 1.5k and then as I was ready to pass him (and hopefully stay ahead of him) off he went again...
Quick question, when choosing your FCN, how does that work, do you tick the option that you are, or the option of what your chasing or have I missed it altogether....
As i see it work out what you are. Anything that is higher on the list (lower number) that you pass and drop is a point. Anyone from below (higher number) on the list that pass and drops you is -1 point. I start with an 8 +1 for baggies, 0 for baggage, 0 for headwear -makes me a 9. If I see a MTB on skinnies, fast hybrid or roadie etc and I run him down and get away that's a point. If I get passed by MTB on knobblies =-1, unless I catch, and then drop him in which case it's nuthin.
Would love to play this game, but I only see recreational riders on my commute and I **own** that cycleway so no points for me. Very rarely see another competitor.
