    I hosted an FCCycles team last year. For fed agency identified teams, we did pretty well. For local teams, we had a damn good team. And personally, I road many (slow) miles

    I love the idea of sporting a team of ringers. No threat against me; I aint in Tim or Consular's league. But the idea of some homeboys and homegals out there beating up some poseurs from Portland??? I think that's great!! Do it. I will say watching all the local teams, and seeing the BikeArl teams do REALLY WELL - was a lot of fun last year.

    And yes, if we want to run our own side competition -- particularly as the season gets warmer and the ability to go out for a saturday ride and just never come back grows -- I'm all for it. I greatly enjoy these pointless endeavors.

    Just fed my Garmin into Endomondo, which shot me up to 29th place overall. Also joined consularrider on the DoS workplace, putting it in 4th overall, despite having only 2 riders. The DC area did really well last year, but hopefully we can crush it this year.

    Last year the teams were filled fairly evenly. To improve BikeArlington's showing, it certainly would make sense to create teams that would shoot right to the top. As it was, the teams did amazingly well.

    This would bring a whole new meaning to the A,B,and C team designations from last year.

    I'm with those who favor of creating a team of our best riders that shoots right for the top.

    Question Fed Agency Challenge

    Last year the Federal Cycling Commission pounded the miles and dropped most of the other federal agencies that participated. A good number of us our federal desk jockeys. Would you be interested in the different represented federal agencies forming teams, joining the NBC, and having our own rivalous competition as well?

    I'd be happy just to join your team.
