Before the Iron Horse
Two thousand years ago, the ancient Greeks recognized that if rider and horse were to survive in battle, complete cooperation, simpatico was necessary between the pair, from this school of thought was born Dressage, to train riders and horses to function as one.
During the Renaissance Dressage was reborn, reaching its peak in the 18th century, with the founding in 1729 of the Spanish Riding School, and establishing the modern discipline.
Dressage is a French term, commonly translated to mean “training” is a highly skilled form of riding performed in exhibition and competition, solo as well as teams. It is a sport, a science, and an “art” that in the final analysis has been pursued for sake of demonstrating mastery.
Equestrian sports first featured on the Olympic programme of the Paris Games in 1900, and with brief gaps continues to this day under the aegis of the Fédération Équestre Internationale, the worldwide organization that serves the Olympic and Paralympic communities of equestrian athletes in the disciplines of Eventing, Jumping, Dressage, Endurance and Vaulting, Driving.
Ɍād♞Ðгessuг™ Wheeled Dгessage
Muiren Ni Sidach’s love of motorcycles was born from her love of horses, being an advice fan of English and Western Saddle riding events from Dressage to Barrel Racing.
Ɍād♞Ðгessuг™ is a graded multi-event system of a structured competitive skill test with elements borrowed from Freestyle Stunt Riding, Motorcycle Gymkhana, Trials Riding, Supermoto with standard built machines that are calibrated to the size, weight, and skill level of the competitor. This is to ensure that the trial is a demonstration of knowledge, talent, skill, and characters.
These two-wheel-drive, electric motorcycles are extremely lightweight, with 3 major frame sizes and motor performance profile specified for the event, the weight of the pilot, and the skill class they compete in. Though power is drawn directly from the roadway each pilot has an energy budget they are restricted to within the event and so can run out of power in the same way one might run out when riding a liquid-fuelled vehicle.
These bikes will have active control suspensions, with command variable travel and other regulatory controlled metrics based on rider size, weight, and competitive class.
A series of elimination heats are staged on a Multi-Terrain Cyberphysical Road Course with pseudo-Urban Obstacle Roads, blending into pseudo-Interstate Highway with Nürburgring’s design elements before entering unpaved but curated natural terrain with gravel transition to a mixture of dirt, sand, stone, and grass with, with much insight from the Ed Bargy manual “Features of Race Track Design”.
This cyberphysical road course will be built, operated, maintained by ΘuterPlace ΛɌ is part of the brick-n-mortar mission of Λn Solas Si ΛrtScience creating an experiential full-time augmented reality where pilots first-person experience is available to subscribing patrons via our community’s AR/VR infrastructure.
