First of all, let me warmly welcome you to our publication.
The Second Life Cycling Federation (SLCF) started its journey in February 2021, with
the purpose of developing cycling in Second Life. We aim to build a community of people
sharing the principles of sport in a healthy atmosphere. A fresh and original initiave that
we hope will attract sport fans in Second Life in the following months.
Our activity plans will include road racing, extending from closed circuit to open road
events (including stage races), but also velodrome, ciclo-cross and mountain biking
competitions. We intend to expand our activities slowly but steadily.
In order to reach our objectives, we shall remain in a collaborative and entrepeneur
engagement, working together with our athletes, associates and sponsors.
This magazine was created with the aim of displaying our activities to SL’s cycling
community. Having said that, in the name of the editorial team, I extend an invitation
to our readers to follow us in the road of this new biking adventure!
Cycling is our passion !

WHAT THE HELL IS A CRITERIUM ?
A criterium, or crit, is a bike race consisting of several laps around a closed circuit, the
length of each lap or circuit ranging from about 400 m to 10,000 m
Race length can be determined by a number of laps or total time, in which case the
number of remaining laps is calculated as the race progresses. Generally the event's
duration (in RL commonly one hour) is shorter than that of a traditional road. However, the
average speed and intensity are appreciably higher. The winner is the first rider to cross the
finish line without having been "lapped".
Success in road criteriums requires a mix of good technical skills — in particular, the
ability to corner smoothly while holding the line on the road, as well as rapidly and sharply
— and riding safely with a large group on a short circuit and exceptional "sprint" ability to
attack other riders and repeatedly accelerate hard from corners.
Criteriums are relatively easy to organize, donot require a large amount of space, and are
good for live spectators as they allow them to see the riders pass by many times. They are
the most common type of bicycle racing.
SLCF criteriums usually do not last more tan 15 minutes, which we consider enough time
to establish differences between the riders contesting the race.
EAR Cycling Criterium
On March 3rd we have hosted the first big event at the SLCF, in association with the EAR
- Especialistas da Aeronáutica (Brazilian aeronautic specialists),
The race consisted of 10 laps on a 1 Km circuit, which makes a total 10 Km and got a nice
participation of 8 cyclists.
We witnessed the surprising win of a talented newcomer cyclist, Atomic Infinity, who
claimed a remarkable victory in front of the other favorites, also great riders, ggigante
Olivieri and "Sweetie" fofinhaprincess.

NOTE FROM BJ BIKES
As some of you already know we are developing a new prototype road bike - the
"ZEPHYR" - which has astonished on the tests as being extremely fast (two
seconds per lap on the Destiny sim circuit) but also with a more stable handling
on the curves. Our experienced professional riders have performed the testing
with "BJ Bike Computer" and concluded that the machine is faster not only in the
curves, but also in the straight lines and uphill sections. The bike has incorporated
the same control and engine scripts as the old model, with no modification at all,
so the explanation given by the experienced SL vehicle builder and fellow cyclist
Atomic Infinity is that our new build has a better performance due to its physics
constitution (perhaps with less contact with the road). All test drivers were very
excited with the new machine.

I FUZILEIROS CRITERIUM
CFN - Corpo de Fuzileiros Navais (Brazilian Marine Corps - lit. '"Corps of naval riflemen"') is
the land combat branch and amphibious branch of the Brazilian Navy. The Corps is
specialised in amphibious warfare, coastal reconnaissance, unconventional warfare,
guerrilla warfare, raids, maritime interdiction and boarding operations.
On 17th March several military from the CFN joined the SLCF professional riders in an
astounding event which saw the participation of 15 cyclists (a record for the SLCF).
Due to the high level of participation and consequent lag, two classification legs had to be
organized, the first four riders on each leg going to the final.
Leading since the very start of the final race, British rider Atomic Infinity (Claire) was
closely followed by Lê Brook (fofinhaprincess). But just after completing the 7th lap,
Atomic had a brad crash, which gave the victory to the Brazilian cyclist.
The CFN officer Joao Porradeiro has been the revelation of the race, obtaining second
place, only 15 seconds away from the winner. The brave cyclist Olivieri finally got the 3rd
place on the podium.
All participants have received a special edition "Camouflage" bike from BJ Bikes store. The
first three got an amazing cash money prize of 500-300-200 L$, sponsored by the CFN.
Our sponsor Underground store awarded the riders with a big prize of 1,500 L$ in gift
In the name of the SLCF I wish to express my gratitude to the CFN, to all Fuzileiros and
pro cyclists who took part in the race, to our sponsor Underground, but specially to Admiral
Felipe Felix and my friend Olivieri Olivieri, who were the persons that allowed the
organization of this amazing race.
