This is a bicycle I want some of you to buy. Not all of you. Just the ones who will understand. This bike is my deep cut. Giovanni Battaglin raced professionally from 1973 to 1984. In his debut Giro d’Italia, at 21, he finished third (behind Eddy Merckx and Felice Gimondi). He won a Tour de France stage in ’76, the climber’s jersey in ’79. (Relive that era with our 1970s logo tee!)

Always have. It gains terroir. • You can’t head out for a good long ride and talk through everything going on in your life with a KOM. • One time at the base of the Tourmalet I knew I was fit, then by the time I got to the top I knew I was fat. That’s perspective.
He rides alone, on rollers, his sweat not so much evaporating as condensing into a fog that combines with his breath to fill the garage with his own atmosphere. He rides alone. Steve Tilford is the oldest professional mountain bike racer in the world. In terms of age, that’s mostly true. Ned Overend, who retired last year from the full-time race circuit but still jumps into an occasional race at 42, is four years older than Tilford.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
