Radical Racer

Cesar is a third generation driver – more comfortable on a cycle than he is in a conversation. On the most dangerous track in the Titan League, the track that killed his father, Cesar races not to win... but to survive.


The Titan Class Cycle is the largest, most powerful, and hardest to pilot of all racing cycles. Built around a colossal engine to tackle the harshest terrain, piloting a Titan is like riding a bull that's strapped to a rocket.

Lucky Charm

Cesar wears the ring of his late father around his neck for good luck. His father wore the ring for every race of his career, except for his final race that killed him.

Special Trick

Titan League Racing only has one rule: no explosives. Cesar has experimented with several tricks to gain an advantage. His favorite is the gumball; a heavy ball with extremely sticky pads that brings a Titan's tires to a violent halt.
