IDAHO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4) – This is not your everyday raft ride down the river. “I mean usually you are going down the river with your friends, maybe drinking an adult beverage,” said Eva Lambert, a local raft guide and a member of Team Colorado. “But now you have to be a little more serious, because this is all about speed.”What she is talking about is the competitive sport of whitewater raft racing. “It is exhilarating, fun and fast,” said Jennifer Hodgkiss, another member of Team Colorado.
LAKEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4)– Pro Motocross made its yearly stop in Colorado this weekend with the 13th annual Thunder Valley National in Lakewood. One of the sport’s biggest stars is local rider Eli Tomac, a 24-year-old from Cortez, Colorado, who is a top contender to win his first points title in 2017. “One thing is for sure, I don’t like getting 2nd (place),” says Tomac.
It’s a motto that Pro Motocross rider Eli Tomac seems to live by. “One thing is for sure, I don’t like getting second,” says Tomac. “If I get second there is nothing satisfying about that. The 24-year-old from Cortez, Colorado, is one of the top motocross riders in the nation, and is considered the favorite to win his first points title this season. “My mentality is to always attack the track, to be the guy picking my own lines and always be charging hard,” says Tomac.
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".
