Twenty-year old Brit Evie Richards won Sunday’s sixth round of the UCI cyclocross World Cup with a technically perfect, powerful ride on Namur, Belgium’s very difficult course. Canadians Christal Ferrier-Bruneau and Maghalie Rochette were in the mix in Belgium. In the men’s race, Wout Van Aert took his second straight World Cup win, thrashing the field in a great display of strength.
Wout Van Aert took his second straight World Cup win, thrashing the field in a great display of strength at Sunday’s sixth round of the UCI cyclocross World Cup in Namur, Belgium. A massive crash on the cobbles kicked off the men’s contest. Michael Vanthourenhout was the early leader but world champion Van Aert took over the front. Mathieu Van der Poel, who had to use a late attack Saturday to beat Van Aert in the DVV Trofee, found himself lagging behind.
As individual WorldTour riders begin to declare their targeted Grand Tours for next season, the lineups for the first races of the 2018 WorldTour calendar are also beginning to take shape. On Friday, FDJ, soon to be Groupama-FDJ, announced its first five riders for the WorldTour kickoff, the Santos Tour Down Under starting January 16, and new addition Antoine Duchesne has been given the nod to start.
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".
