2013 Championship Final Results

The sixth and final rollover for Smartsims’ 2013 MikesBikes World Champs was processed leaving the ultimate Champion is Xavier Wills from TAFE South Australia. All firms started the competition with a similar strategy but through unrelenting focus on the market, his firm and the products his firm was selling, Xavier Wills climbed up the leader-board, continuing to adapt to survive and excel!

“Competiting in the Mikes Bikes Championships was a great learning experience and has helped further my understanding of business and marketing principles, especially in regards to meeting the demands of the consumer. It was a very tough competition and full credit to SPIRIT BIKES, who were almost impossible to overcome. Best of luck to all of the competitors from the finals, I wish them all the best for their future business endeavors.” – Xavier Wills, Integrated Smack

The top performing firm was followed closely by SPIRIT BIKES, run by the University of Haifa’s dedicated students, Oren Feldman and Sharon Sisso. They gave a solid challenge till the very end and had us here at Smartsims guessing till the last minute!

It is no easy task being successful in the midst of giant conglomerates like the Top 2, but Middle Georgia State College’s Hamid Ganjikia found a position for his firm Cyrus to not only survive, but also thrive!

The 2013 MWC is the most interesting competition we’ve seen in recent times and it was no small feat to get to the Final Round. We would like to wish all the firms in the Final Round, not just the winners, all the best for their future endeavours! It was a pleasure spectating and we hope the Competition has been a great learning and fun experience for all of you.

Congratulations to Charles who narrowly won the final ahead of Garett Webb with a SHV of $97.14. Special mention also goes to Mark Delecate from the Munich Business School who won the Plate Final. Check out the Final Scoreboard below for a full run down.

“It was very exciting to participate in this competition asCharles Lu, 2010 MikesBikes-Intro World Champ the result in the end was very close. I would also like to congratulate the other prize winners for their fine results. I have used MikesBikes a few times in the past and each time it offers a unique experience because there is no single best solution to the game. You have to respond to your competition as well as implement your own strategy. I am looking forward to participating in future events!”
– Charles Lu

Congratulations to the award winning participants:

  • 1st Cup Final Firm – Charles Lu SHV $97.14
  • 2nd Cup Final Firm – Garett Webb SHV $89.16
  • 1st Plate Final Firm – Mark Delecate SHV $63.74

The Cup Final competitors were neck to neck for most of the competition! While Garett Webb started out strong and maintained the lead for the first half of the game, Charles Lu executed his strategy with perfect timing and precision, ultimately reigning supreme! Special mention goes to Hieu Ha, who ran a very successful and profitable firm. Their firm was very cost effective, with profits nearly as high as the winners, even with lower sales.

In the Plate Final, while Tang Tang and Mark Delecate started out strong, it was Adam Thompson who was Mark’s main competition. However, Mark Delecate had a strong business plan, and always stayed ahead of the competition, ultimately winning the final prize.

Full credit goes to the winners who fought close battles and emerged as victors! From the Scoreboard report you can see that consistently large Profit margins won the competition for the firms. The top performing Firms did this through being the most efficient with their spending, achieving the most effect from each dollar spent.

On behalf of Smartsims, we would like to congratulate all those who competed in this year’s competition and wish you well in your future endeavours.

Full credit to Life on Two Wheels, who were able to push forward to top place mid-competition, and once there, have really dominated with a convincing win. Prizes will be awarded to the top two teams as advertised; we will be in contact shortly to discuss this.

The results speak for themselves; the remaining positions were a close battle heavily fought right down to the last rollover – you had us here at Smartsims on the edge of our seats. Special mention goes to team bbuNZ (New Zealand) who grabbed third place only on the final rollover. Congratulations to those remaining teams that were able to achieve over $200 SHV, Baldwin (Australia) and Legendary (New Zealand).

From the Scoreboard report you can see that although the top Firm did not have the highest Sales, it was their consistent large Profit margin that won them the competition (though large Sales definitely help to achieve that Profit). The top performing Firms did this through being the most efficient with their spending, achieving the most effect from each dollar spent.

On behalf of Smartsims, we would like to congratulate all those who competed in this year’s competition and wish you well in your future endeavours.
