Race reports are up now for the funraces, they give the races a story and are a nice extra when we get a glance of the new race engine. This thread is started to suggest and discus improvements on that race report (please do not use this to discus the new race engine itself).
My first suggestion is that the informations in blue ' The cyclist in the first group enter part xx' should be replaced by a message saying : 'xxx km to go , Peloton still grouped' or 'xx km to go, Xxx, Yyy and Zzz lead the peloton with an advantage of xx:xx '
Secondly I would like some more excitement at the end something like "Looks like Xxx, Yyy and Zzz will be battling it out in a sprint" " Zzz was clearly the best and wins the race" or "No, Qqq comes up from behind with an incredible speed and takes the win , Ohoh Zzz looks really devistated'. In fact I think the whole reports could use some grouping , now there is always only one name per line.
Keep in mind that funraces don't have intermediate sprints and there's indeed grouping in these sprints. But I agree that certain events might benefit from more grouping, like falls.
FYI: The intermediate results after each part are disabled at the moment. When enabled, you will be able to view the results in absolute times, relative to the leading group/cyclist and relative to the preceding group. (so you know you don't need to suggest this )
"Few people understand the psychology of dealing with a highway traffic cop. Your normal speeder will panic and immediately pull over to the side. This is wrong. It arouses contempt in the cop-heart. Make the bastard chase you. He will follow." - Raoul Duke
In the race I participated, there was a (useless) comment after the race ended. The race ended and this sentence appeared: 06:41:51 Van Santvoort from Zhiemgala is one of the guys who gets the peloton going 06:41:24 Bregge has won this race!!!
So if it's usefull, just drop it If the race has already ended there still could be some information about time losses (in tours), so when the rivals are ending...
I think successful attacks should be put in a different colour as it's really difficult to find them at the minute.
Also when someone regains contact with a group I think it should be mentioned. The winner in my race was dropped by his group at the start of the last part of the race and three entries later, none of which included him, we're told he won.
