  1. This is the story of the International Velo Federation (IVF). In this thread you will be able to follow from the very beginnings the history of how the IVF came to be and each and every event thereafter. In keeping with this being a thread on a design website the story is going to feature many logo, uniforms, and even stadium designs and changes. I welcome comments, opinions, and questions. Also, in keeping with this being a design website I will try my best to discuss what I was thinking as I created the designs you will see. As for the sport itself, Velo is a made-up bicycle racing game. The basic synopsis is this. Games are played in 3-5 races that are called sets. In a set each team has 3 riders competing, so altogether between the two competing teams 6 riders are on the track (Velodrome) per set. Only one team can score in a set. A point is scored by each rider who finishes before the first finisher on the losing team. So, in a given set the most a team can score is 3 points. If you sit and consider how this will work, that is why game lengths range from 3-5 sets. If by the third sets completion one team has 7 and the other had 0, the last two sets are not needed to be played because only 6 possible points remain on the board. Even if the trailing team got them all the final score would be 7-6 and they would still lose. This may become clearer as this thread plays out. I am going to post a detailed game sheet for every game ever played. Again, I welcome questions. They will help to clarify as this goes on. On a team’s roster there are 6 riders and a coach. A team may also have 1 or 2 assistant coaches. The players are listed on a roster by position; Leadoff (this is also the captain and most often fastest rider on the team), Middle, Cleanup, First Option, Second Option, and Third Option. The first three (Leadoff, Middle, and Cleanup) make up a team’s line or starters. They will be the players to race in the first set of games. The other three positions make up the bench or options. These are the players that may be rotated in for the later sets. At least one bench player will see action in the game because rules dictate that at least one change in lineup must be made one set to another and no rider may be in more then three consecutive sets of a game. There are exceptions to the rules laid out in this paragraph but as to not congest this initial post to much those can be explained in due time or through your encouraged questions. So, to begin allow me to give the quick back story set up and then end for tonight with the first logos and uniforms.

    Velo

    So once upon a time in a different but similar parallel universe there was a sport called Velo. The name derived from the fact that it was a bicycle racing game played on a velodrome. It was a team in which a team competed to be the first to reach 9 points or enough points in the game that their opponent could not overcome them. There of course was the possibility of a tie. Eventually the North American Velo Organization (NAVO) that would even eventually morph into the Professional Velo Rank (PVR) was formed. With time that league as well as the Colligate Cycling Conference (CCC) gained a large national following. This however is the story of how it all began and everything that followed… It all started back in 1888 when showman P.T. Barnum was looking for another money generating attraction. Someone had told him all about the sport of cycle racing and how in Europe they had these sloped tracks, like Preston Park in England, that accommodated such racing events. Barnum hired some engineers who soon developed a portable velo track that could be simply disassembled. With this invention his intention was to develop a couple teams that would travel the country competing against one another. Before getting to that point however he thought he would test it out in Boston. Barnum set out to put two teams together and pit them against one another in an event to be held in Boston. If things went well he thought he could perhaps then establish some sort of tour. So he went to the Boston Globe and announced he was looking for a couple men who might have some cycling knowledge and would be interested in managing and coaching these teams. To Be Continued… Before the continuation however let’s spell out the rules to the game of Velo. Each team consists of 6 roster spots. The head rider is called the Leadoff position, behind him is the Middle position and following him is the Cleanup position. These are your starters or line. Your remaining roster spots consist of the bench. These positions are First Option, Second Option, and Third Option. A team also has a head coach and may have 1-2 assistant coaches. Games are played in 3-5 races which are called sets. Every set has the potential for 3 points to be scored. Only one team can score in a set. It works like this; every team has 3 riders in a set, so this means 6 riders are on the track for each set or race. The winner of the race scores a point for his team as does each of his teammates who finish with him before the highest finisher on the other team. Therefore you see that a team can score up to 3 points in a set. See below for an example that might help explain; Team A Team B other four riders finish in any other order (this would be a one point score) Team A Team A Team B other three riders finish in any other order (this would be a two point score) Team A Team A Team A Team B Team B Team B (this would be a three point score) By this the max point total a team could score would be 9 points in a game. That is because if a team ever reaches 9 not enough other points remain possible to score that would allow their opponent to overcome them. So for example if a team scores 3 points each of the first three sets the remaining two sets are not necessary. The final score would be 9-0. This is referred to as a perfect game. There are several other scenarios that exist that could cause a team to end before all 5 sets are needed but at the minimum no less than 3 sets can be played in a game. Each team starts the game with their line. After each set they must substitute at least one rider. No rider can remain in the game longer than 3 consecutive sets. However after sitting out for a set a rider may be substituted back into the game. The only reason a player cannot reenter a game is if they are involved in a crash. If they crash at any point in a game they may not return back into the game.

    History of Velo

    Monday, August 27, 1888 – The Boston Globe reports on an event that showman P.T. Barnum was organizing. The event would be a bicycle race contested between two teams. The rules of the game were laid out by P.T. Barnum. He called this team cycle racing game Velo, which he derived from the name of the special type of track the race would be played on, a velodrome. It was further reported that Barnum had constructed a velodrome that could be moved into a venue where it would be assembled and then disassembled when the event was finished. Barnum informs everyone that he is looking for two coaches to lead his teams.
  4. Share any pictures that you took during professional or college games you have been to. So if you were at a NFL, MLB, MiLB, NBA, NHL, MLS, EPL, NCAA, CFL, AFL, NASCAR, etc. game/match/race/practice post them here. No pictures of high school or youth leagues, please. I get that most good cameras aren't allowed in most stadiums so most pictures here might not be in the best quality. Here are some pictures I've taken over the years at sporting events... Bucks vs Blazers pre-game from this season Badgers "chopping down" the goalpost after win over Minnesota in 2014 Aaron Rodgers TD pass to Richard Rodgers at Vikings in 2014 Badgers pre-game vs Bowling Green in 2014 March Madness 2014: Frank Kaminsky and Badgers tipoff vs Oregon Lambeau Field flyover vs Saints in 2012 Packers season opener vs 49ers in 2012 Tim Lincecum pitching vs Angels in Spring Training NFL Thursday Night Kickoff game vs Saints in 2011 (National Anthem) Jordy Nelson riding bike to training camp in 2008. This day turned out to be the last day Favre was a Packer, traded a few hours later.
