Colombian sprinting sensation Fernando Gaviria (Quick Step) took his second consecutive stage of the Tour of Guangxi in China on Friday. The six-day stage race wraps up the 2017 WorldTour season. With Marcel Kittel off to Katusha next year and Matteo Trentin setting sail for Orica-Scott, Gaviria becomes Quick Step’s main sprinter, although new signing Elia Viviani gives the Belgium-based squad another sharp weapon.
ASO revealed the route of the 2018 Tour de France at the Palais de CongrĂ¨s convention centre in Paris on Tuesday, unveiling a course that has plenty of climbing in the latter half including a haul to Alpe d’Huez, along with two time trials, cobbles and dirt roads. The 105th edition has a slightly later start than usual to accommodate the World Cup in Russia, running from July 7 to July 29.
Somewhat lost in the hoopla of next year’s Tour de France route being unveiled in Paris on Tuesday, UAE-Emirates confirmed what has been speculated in cycling circles since the summer: Fabio Aru has signed with the team for three years. Aru first rose to prominence with a podium at the 2014 Giro d’Italia before a huge 2015 in which he placed runner-up in the Giro and won the Vuelta a EspaĂąa.
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".
