Universal Language...

With riders from so many countries in the Champion System team, sometimes communication can be difficult. Not just when we are having a conversation, but when verbal signals are vital, such as whilst riding in a group.

If you yell out 'car back!' or 'stopping!' in the bunch, some riders will simply look around and wonder what the heck you are screaming about. This can cause problems when you are trying to get a huge bunch to proceed as safely as possible.

There is one term, however, that everyone seems to understand. Scream out 'Pisso!' and everyone will quickly dart to the side of the road for a nature stop. I don't know how or where everybody learnt this, but they all know what it means!?
