Team Sky’s Tao Geoghegan Hart has described how his late team-mate Chad Young was in his thoughts during the Tour de Yorkshire. The two riders were both on the American Axeon Hagens Berman development team prior to Geoghegan Hart signing with Sky for 2017. Young passed away on Friday after sustaining a head injury after crashing during the final stage of the Tour of the Gila the weekend before.
With hundreds of thousands of fans estimated to have lined the roads for Sunday’s queen stage, it was no surprise that riders came away from the Tour de Yorkshire as generous as ever in their praise for the fans. Serge Pauwels (Dimension Data), winner of stage three and overall, called the crowds were “maybe even better here than in Liège, the crowds here are amazing.
Lizzie Deignan celebrated a “special and surreal” victory on home roads as she took her first win of the 2017 season at the Tour de Yorkshire, as she crossed the line solo in front of reams of fans in Harrogate. Despite scoring a trio of second places at the three Ardennes Classics earlier this month, the 27-year-old former world champion had yet to get a win so far this year.
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".
