Eighth place at the Tour de l’Avenir may have earned him a WorldTour contract at Quick-Step Floors, but fans would have been forgiven for knowing little about 22-year-old James Knox at the start of his season. That’s until he started putting in some mammoth turns on the front of the Abu Dhabi Tour, drawing attention with domestique performances that have helped Elia Viviani to one stage win and into the overall lead after three stages. The numbers are there for something special.
ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (VN) — German sprinter Marcel Kittel says he isn’t bothered yet by rivals’ wins and his lack of them, so far in 2018. Katusha-Alpecin’s new sprinter has yet to score for his team in 2018, while most all of the other top sprinters, from Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) to Caleb Ewan (Mitchelton-Scott), have given their team’s wins. “When I look at my watch, it’s still February and we still have seven months of the season to go and 70 race days,” Kittel said.
ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (VN) — German André Greipel is known for his grand tour sprints, but loves and respects the cobbled classics, like Paris-Roubaix, that he will return to them this spring to help Lotto Soudal. Greipel each year finds a spot on his schedule to race the cobbled classics after Milano-Sanremo and a way to smash his rivals with attacks on the muurs or sectors.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
