You may have noticed our unique team names which contain mixed alpha-numeric characters. This text type is known as “leet” (or “l337″), a screen-based semi-encrypted method of typing which originated within the internet community. Comic strips such as Megatokyo and online web forums have brought the use of leet-esque vernacular into public use.
As for Team N3kk1d: our riders have been known to disregard general cyclist clothing gear such as jerseys while participating in the Bike MS event; if the weather is decent, you may catch them shirtless (“nekkid”). However, this practice usually does not extend to the entire team, and our name is meant to be tongue-in-cheek.
