    Default Team 11 - We're Primed for Victory!

    Teammates,

    I am humbled to have been selected as acting captain of what is clearly the best team in the entire history of Freezing Saddles.

    Please join Freezing Saddles' most exclusive club at: https://www.strava.com/clubs/250621

    And let's come up with a team name that reflects both our jaw-dropping superiority and our humility.

    Team Members include:

    accordioneur
    annoyedindc
    bentbike33
    DismalScientist
    Henry
    ianh
    Marlon

    -- Accordioneur / Jesse

    My favorite pop culture reference to the number 11 is of course the amplifier scene from ",This is Spinal Tap" (turn it up to 11). So for a team name, I thought a reference to that movie would make a good team name: "Turn it up to 11", "Smell the Glove" (something we all do in winter to determine when laundry is due), etc.

    Washing things, isn't that what the rain is for?

    I like the turn the dial up to 11 idea. Oh, "Crank it up to 11."

    I was toying with references to 121 (Team 11 x 11 members) like Bacardi 121 but Crank It Up To 11 is much better and gets my vote.

    Default Team name

    I second the name "Turn it up to 11" or "Crank it up to 11". -Davis/TheSuperMonad

    I re-read the BAFS rules and there's nothing about having Bob vet your team name for creativity. So, our team name will be "Up to Eleven̈".

    I look forward to riding with you until we spontaneously combust!
