Welcome to the first episode of The Road Bike Action Show. This week we bring you an in depth interview with Ted King while we were in Italy for the recent Cannondale Synapse launch and had the oppotunity to hear Ted’s story. We go over his collegiate cycling days which brought him to the USA National team which lead into his professional domestic racing program. From there he found success which lead him over to Europe full time competing at the highest level of cycling in the World Tour.
Last month we had the opportunity to take a trip to France for the launch of the new Giant Propel. We were so impressed by the launch we wanted to show everyone where we had the chance to ride this Propel for the first time. You can read our First Ride here. We were fortunate enough to stay in a castle during our stay in France. The castle had a moat surrounding the entire property.
News, Views and Insights from this Past WeekOn the fourth stage of the Tour the race lost two of the biggest stars from a controversial crash in the closing meters. Cavendish leaving with a broken shoulder and Peter being disqualified. It was just in the recent days how the talk of the race was around Mark closing in on the record of stage wins and Peter planning on equaling the record of green jerseys. Bicycle racing is one of the most demanding and unpredictable sports out there.
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".
