Pace Partner names

While it’s great that the Pace Partners are graduating from FutureWorks, one thing that I think is a step backwards is the new names.

One of the nice features with the old names, was that the name corresponded with the category range they fit in. Dan Diesel was cat D. Benoit Brevet was cat B. You could easily pick which one you wanted to ride with without digging into the details to know their W/kg. But now we’ve got Bernie as one of the lower ones, Constance is the highest, and names like Miguel and Yumi that wouldn’t fit anywhere in the categories. You either memorize which one(s) you want to ride with all the time or you have to get into their details to find what’s right for the riding you want.

Thanks Trey.

It should be relatively easy to spot, based on the colour of their card, but I accept that it did help that their name started with the same character as the category.

Perhaps they could advertise their category as a bracketed “team” designation, like “Miguel [Cat D].”

Bernie is short for Bernadette.

Just don’t name one of them “X Æ A-12”

Agree with this— also consider bots put out more or less whether ascending or descending. On ATV, with the UI the way it is, it can be tricky to tell which is which. Maybe in the UI you can put their base output with current output?
