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.
