According to a 2021 survey by the Pew Research Center, even though they have doubts about its administration, fairness, and usefulness as a crime deterrent, most Americans today still support the death penalty. Moreover, while it may seem like a brutal relic of a bygone era, capital punishment is still legal in 24 states, for the federal government, and for the military. As John Gramlich writes, “while state-level executions have decreased” in recent decades, “the federal government put more prisoners to death under President Donald Trump than at any point since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated capital punishment in 1976.”Sister Helen Prejean has spent much of her life as a Catholic nun bearing witness to the violent inhumanity of state executions and campaigning to abolish the death penalty. Her work has been recognized around the world, including by the Pope, and has been instrumental in advancing national dialogue on capital punishment and in shaping the Catholic Church's vigorous opposition to all executions. She is also the author of Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty in the United States, The Death of Innocents: An Eyewitness Account of Wrongful Executions, and River of Fire: On Becoming an Activist. In this special episode of Rattling the Bars, TRNN Executive Producer Eddie Conway sits down to speak with Sister Prejean about the barbarous injustice of state-sanctioned executions and her own path to becoming a leading advocate for death penalty abolition.Read the transcript of this interview: https://therealnews.com/the-death-penalty-is-a-barbarous-stain-on-our-humanityPre-Production/Studio/Post Production: Cameron GranadinoHelp us continue producing Rattling the Bars by following us and becoming a monthly sustainer: Donate: https://therealnews.com/donate-pod-rtbSign up for our newsletter: https://therealnews.com/nl-pod-rtbGet Rattling the Bars updates: https://therealnews.com/up-pod-rtbLike us on Facebook: https://facebook.com/therealnewsFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/therealnews

If you are still contemplating your 2022 season, we have some information and discussion that should help you plan your season, or at least get off the couch and register. Bill, I thought I'd tee up this feature discussion by throwing out a few questions for you and I to discuss. Here they are: What to consider when planning your season? Should you register now or wait? How much should I budget for my race season? When should I start training? How to get started with a training plan? What to consider when planning your season? Rich's thoughts For me I know that I like to avoid cold water, so warmer water is a factor How accessible is the race from a travel perspective? Is the race serviced by bike transport if travel involved? Does the race venue sound exciting? Bill's thoughts Should you register now or wait? Rich's thoughts: Generally there are a number of arguments for committing early. Lower race entry fees and greater availability of lodging if traveling. Tier-Based Pricing generally means you save if you register early. General entries are sold on a tiered pricing model based on slot inventory. Once slot inventory is sold out at each level, the price will go up. Bill's thoughts: How much should I budget for my race season? Rich's thoughts: Before registering for your races, make a list of all the races your are interested in doing. Eliminate with schedule conflicts and then consider the all in costs. Long distance races tend to require travel and logistics that don't accompany local races. Current United States IRONMAN prices, of which only Ironman Cozumel's website indicates which Tier they are at. Texas Limited St George Qualification/Sold Out Tulsa $774 Des Moines $699 Lake Placid Limited Alaska Sold Out Wisconsin $799 Maryland $799 Increase Sunday Chattanooga $799 California $834 Florida $774 Cozumel Tier 1 - $675.00 Local Races: Breakaway Athletics sent an email that they will be announcing 2022 registrations soon. BBSC has 5 tiered price points and we just past tier 1 (their lowest prices) last Sunday November 21st. Without Limits has also announced their 2022 race schedule. They also have a date-based tiered-pricing. The Colorado Triathlon: Sprint Triathlon Individual: $90 until 1/1, $95 until 4/1, $100 until 5/29 at midnight Olympic Triathlon Individual: $110 until 1/1, $120 until 4/1, $130 until 5/29 at midnight Bill your thoughts? When should I begin training? Bill, if you were going to pick a couple of events or races for 2022, what might they be? What time of year? When would you start training and why? Rich: My answer depends on the when your earliest and A races are in 2022, what distance you are racing, your realistic goal performance and your current level of training/fitness. As a general rule of thumb, consistency in training produces the best results. It's best to keep a consistent schedule of training even in the NA off season. If you are working with a coach already, you are likely in coach-designed off season plan that will bridge you to your formal periodized plan in 2022 (Base, Build, Peak and Taper). If you are not working directly with a coach, you either self-coached or self-coached with a purchased training plan more than likely. If you are a triathlete for example, it's good to keep a consistent mix of swim, bike, run and strength if you are a triathlete. Where can I find a training plan: Bill, what was the first race where you followed a training plan? Was it written by a coach or purchased online? Rich's If you are new to triathlon and don't have a coach, there are a lot of great resources out there. www.mytimetotri.com - free plans BeginnerTriathlete.com - Triathlon Training for Beginners If you are doing a Sprint or Olympic distance race, As an athlete using TriDot, as a coach, as an ambassador of TriDot, and soon to be a TriDot coach, I highly recommend you try it for 14-day Test Drive. Start your 14-day Free Trial! When you set up your profile, you'll also pick your "A" and "B" races in the RaceX part of the TriDot app and then TriDot uses your data and AI to design and actively adjust your plan better than a coach can and certainly better than a generic off the shelf plan. It optimize your training for better results in less time with fewer injuries. https://tridot.com/. If you decide to continue using it, you can sign up for as little as $9.99/mo, which is cheaper than other training apps without the training plan and cheaper than most plans out there. If you want more bells and whistles for $29 and $99/mo. If you feel like you could benefit from active coaching (teaching form and skills, accountability, encouragement, race planning) in addition to a training plan. You can signup for a coached service with TriDot or please send me an email to Rich@303Colorado.com. If you do take TriDot for a test drive, there's a question "Did a coach refer you?" Please tell them coach Rich Soares referred you. Here are some of the features I really like about TriDot and why: Detailed daily workouts with training zones that take into account elevation, humidity and temperature - Environment Normalization Performance benchmarking (TriDot scores. For each discipline, a normalized functional threshold power or pace (FTP) on a 1 to 100 scale with 1 being the slowest and 100 being at or near world-record pace.) Drill and exercise videos. Swim, bike, run and strength workouts have warmups, drills and exercises and there's a video window in the training event to show a 20-30 second video illustrating the drill. For example, a lot of the run warm up drills have Bobby McGee demonstrating how to do them properly. Device integration (Garmin, Polar, Strava) and smart trainer (Wahoo Kicker) Swim form analysis - combination of diagnostic questions, PhysiFactors (Intensity Duration Frequency Sequence Technique) and a CVT. Categorizes you as a Tarzan, Overglider, Overkicker, etc and each has a list of characteristics. Swim drill optimization - offers specific drills to address the negative characteristics of your swim form categorization.

Endurance News: Kristian Blummenfelt from Norway and Sara Svensk from Sweden wins Cozumel. In his Ironman debut, the Olympic champ split a 39:41 swim, 4:02:40 bike, and a 2:35:24 run for a 7:21:12 total. Notably, second-place finisher Reudi Wild, also broke the previous Ironman world's best time with a 7:36:35 and the women's winner, Sara Svensk, set an Ironman-brand world's best time of 8:22:41. This prompted a lot of online speculation about if the course was short, if the swim was accurate.

(Nov. 19, 2021) /ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – After months of debate and negotiations, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to send the Build Back Better (BBB) Act to the Senate, approving with it billions of dollars in funding for an electric bicycle tax credit, a bike commuter benefit, climate and equity-enhancing infrastructure and more in the $1.75 trillion social spending bill. “The House's latest vote on the Build Back Better (BBB) Act embraces bicycles as part of a climate solution thanks to new financial incentives for bikes and e-bikes and grants for climate and equity focused infrastructure improvements,” said PeopleForBikes President and CEO Jenn Dice. “We urge the Senate to take up the BBB before the end of the year so we can get to work on lowering transportation emissions while keeping all people, no matter how they travel or where they live, moving.” PeopleForBikes applauds the House for advancing wide-reaching policies to curb transportation emissions and enhance mobility. The inclusion of the E-BIKE Act, a tax credit for electric bicycles, could mean money back in the pockets of Americans looking for a green, efficient and healthy transportation option. It will support delivery workers reliant on electric bicycles, parents seeking to leave the car at home for school drop offs and anyone who wants to harness the power of an electric bicycle to meet their daily local transportation needs. PeopleForBikes is especially grateful to House leadership for shepherding the BBB through the legislative process and champions for bikes and e-bikes in Congress, specifically Representatives Earl Blumenauer (OR-03), Jimmy Panetta (CA-20) and Mike Thompson (CA-05) for their sponsorship of the E-BIKE Act. The BBB now heads to the Senate, where a path forward remains unclear. PeopleForBikes, the bicycle industry and our partners will continue to advocate for a spending bill that includes the E-BIKE Act, climate and equity infrastructure grants and more. PeopleForBikes works at the federal, state and local levels to advance the state of bicycle infrastructure, promote incentives for bicycles and expand access to electric bicycles. For questions related to this work, please contact PeopleForBikes Director of Federal Affairs Noa Banayan at firstname.lastname@example.org. About PeopleForBikes PeopleForBikes is making biking better for everyone by uniting millions of Americans, thousands of businesses and hundreds of communities to make every bike ride safer, more accessible and more fun. When people ride bikes, great things happen. Join us at PeopleForBikes.org. What's New in the 303: Ran into Jennifer Gutierrez swimming at Eastridge Rec Center in Highlands Ranch. Gutierrez competed at the first Olympic triathlon at the 2000 Summer Olympics and she was the first American to qualify as a triathlete for the 2000 Olympics. She took thirteenth place with a total time of 2:03:38.48. Upcoming Guests Marianne Martin (born November 1, 1957 in Fenton, Michigan) is an American road racing cyclist. She won the first Tour de France for women in 1984. The year she won the Tour de France Martin suffered from anemia earlier in that year and had been riding poorly. At the race Martin took the lead after stage 14 where the race encountered the mountains. Martin was a good climber and never gave up the lead after that into Paris. The streets were said to contain more two million spectators watching the race. Martin was inducted into the 2012 Boulder (Colorado) Sports Hall of Fame. She's a talented professional photographer and her work can be seen on Real Life Portraits. She is going to help us understand women's racing, pay disparity and what it would take to close the pay gap. Closing: Thanks again for listening in this week.

After spending nearly half a century in prison, leftist revolutionaries and political prisoners David Gilbert and Russell Maroon Shoatz (who also spent 22 years in solitary confinement) were released earlier this year. In this episode of Rattling the Bars, TRNN Executive Producer Eddie Conway speaks with Charles Hopkins, better known as Mansa Musa, about the historic occasion of Gilbert and Shoatz's release and the reasons for their imprisonment. Conway and Hopkins are both former Black Panthers and longtime political prisoners who engaged in radical organizing and education programs while locked up. While reflecting on the historical climate in which they, Gilbert, Shoatz, and a generation of radicals were killed or imprisoned in the 1960s and ‘70s, Hopkins and Conway also offer advice to today's social justice activists on the imperatives of community organizing and the continuing threat posed by the draconian apparatus of state repression.Pre-Production/Studio/Post Production: Cameron GranadinoHelp us continue producing Rattling the Bars by following us and becoming a monthly sustainer: Donate: https://therealnews.com/donate-pod-rtbSign up for our newsletter: https://therealnews.com/nl-pod-rtbGet Rattling the Bars updates: https://therealnews.com/up-pod-rtbLike us on Facebook: https://facebook.com/therealnewsFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/therealnews
I've talked with producers, I've talked with distributors, now I'm shifting gears to showcase the buyers. These are the women behind the bar who are making the decisions and keeping the cider and beer flowing. For this episode I sit down with Isabel who has a great story to tell as she's moved from bar, to taproom, to brewery, building her own wealth of knowledge and sharing that education with the masses. This is a start to a longer series about women behind the bar and how they're crushing it. Special

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Samstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Gewalt bei Protesten in den Niederlanden Bei einer Kundgebung gegen schärfere Corona-Regeln ist es in Rotterdam zu schweren Ausschreitungen gekommen. Nach Schüssen der Polizei soll es sieben Verletzte gegeben haben, teilte die Polizei in der niederländischen Hafenstadt mit. Randalierer hatten Polizeiautos in Brand gesteckt sowie Polizisten und Feuerwehrleute mit Gegenständen beworfen. Die Proteste richteten sich gegen Überlegungen der Regierung, angesichts steigender Corona-Infektionszahlen eine 2G-Regel in den Niederlanden einzuführen. Zugang zu Veranstaltungen, Cafés und Restaurants gäbe es dann nur noch für Geimpfte und Genesene. Genehmigung für Corona-Tabletten Die EU-Arzneimittelbehörde EMA hat dem Corona-Medikament Molnupiravir des US-Pharmariesen MSD eine Notfallzulassung erteilt. Die Tabletten könnten zur Behandlung von COVID-19-Patienten eingesetzt werden, bei denen das Risiko einer schweren Erkrankung droht, teilte die EMA mit. Das Mittel verringert die Fähigkeit des Coronavirus, sich in Körperzellen zu vermehren, und mildert damit den Krankheitsverlauf. Außerdem prüft die EMA derzeit auch das Medikament Paxlovid des US-Pharmakonzerns Pfizer. Paxlovid kann ebenfalls in Tablettenform von COVID-19-Patienten eingenommen werden. Bayern und Sachsen ziehen Notbremse Mit massiven Maßnahmen reagieren die Landesregierungen in München und Dresden auf die stark steigende Zahl der Corona-Infektionen im Südosten Deutschlands. In Bayern sollen laut Ministerpräsident Markus Söder von Mitte kommender Woche an für Ungeimpfte strikte Kontaktbeschränkungen gelten. Alle Clubs, Diskotheken und Bars müssen für die nächsten drei Wochen schließen, Weihnachtsmärkte soll es nicht geben. Ähnliche Maßnahmen sollen in Sachsen bereits am Montag in Kraft treten, wie Sozialministerin Petra Köpping mitteilte. Zudem werden dort Großveranstaltungen, Feste, Messen und auch die Beherbergung von Touristen untersagt. Saakaschwili nimmt wieder Nahrung zu sich Nach der Verlegung in ein Militärkrankenhaus hat Georgiens Ex-Präsident Michail Saakaschwili seinen Hungerstreik beendet. Der 53-Jährige befinde sich weiter in einem lebensbedrohlichen Zustand, sagte sein Arzt Nikolos Kipschidse. Er werde intensivmedizinisch betreut. Saakaschwili war Anfang Oktober nach acht Jahren im Exil aus der Ukraine nach Georgien zurückgekehrt und kurz darauf festgenommen worden. Aus Protest gegen seine Inhaftierung nahm er sieben Wochen lang keine Nahrung zu sich. Die Behörden werfen ihm Amtsmissbrauch vor. Er weist die Anschuldigungen als politisch motiviert zurück. Polizeischüler posieren als Nazis Im Westen Kolumbiens haben Polizeianwärter bei einer Veranstaltung SS-Uniformen getragen und Nazisymbole zur Schau gestellt. Ein Teilnehmer hatte sich als Adolf Hitler verkleidet, wie Fotos in sozialen Netzwerken zeigten. Der Direktor der Polizeischule in Tuluá wurde entlassen. Präsident Iván Duque sowie die deutsche und die israelische Botschaft in Bogotá verurteilten die Vorgänge als Verharmlosung der NS-Herrschaft. Das kolumbianische Verteidigungsministerium betonte, die Veranstaltung habe in keiner Hinsicht den politischen Leitlinien bei der Ausbildung von Sicherheitskräften entsprochen. Freispruch im Kenosha-Prozess Im US-Bundesstaat Wisconsin ist ein junger Todesschütze freigesprochen worden. Der angeklagte Kyle Rittenhouse hatte bei Anti-Rassismus-Protesten in der Stadt Kenosha zwei Männer erschossen und ein dritten verletzt. Die Geschworenen befanden den zum Tatzeitpunkt 17-Jährigen in allen Anklagepunkten für nicht schuldig. Rittenhouse hatte nach eigenen Angaben im August 2020 Geschäfte vor Plünderern schützen wollen. US-Präsident Joe Biden rief dazu auf, das Urteil zu akzeptieren, auch wenn ein "Gefühl des Ärgers" zurückbleibe. Anti-Waffen- und Bürgerrechtsgruppen sprachen von einem "Justizirrtum". Biden ist fit Erstmals in seiner Amtszeit hat Joe Biden den für US-Präsidenten üblichen regelmäßigen Gesundheits-Check absolviert. Nach Angaben seines Arztes ist Biden ein gesunder, kräftiger 78 Jahre alter Mann, der fit sei, erfolgreich die Pflichten der Präsidentschaft auszuüben. Das jüngst vermehrt von der Öffentlichkeit bemerkte Räuspern und Husten des Präsidenten führte der Mediziner auf gelegentliches Sodbrennen zurück. Zum anderen sei Bidens Gang etwas steifer. Hier empfahl der Arzt orthopädische Einlagen.
Jake Kilgore is the race director of the DC Peaks 50 that has an epic story this year, ending in NYT headlines '87 Rescued From ‘Near-Whiteout' Conditions During Utah Ultramarathon. Speaking of stories, Jake is also author of the book Trial Running: Learning Perseverance Through Life's Aid Stations. You heard right "TRIAL running". Jake and his trail running has some very interesting roots, twists and unexpected outcomes. It was his time in Federal Prison where much of his trail running dreams were manifested.

The National Weather Service, for example, instructed hunters and outdoor recreationists to be prepared for winter conditions in the Utah mountains. This type of storm is not unusual for the month of October — and even the second half of September — in this geography, the tops of mountains. On Saturday, October 9, at 5:30 a.m., the race started off as planned in Kaysville, Utah. This town is just north of Salt Lake City in Davis County, the namesake of DC in the race name. Runners were excited for this autumn ultra, to run a rugged course that traversed the mountain range above the northern Salt Lake City suburbs, including Francis Peak and Bountiful Peak. The more prepared runners had seen the weather forecast and knew the event's high passages, and packed their running vests accordingly with jackets and gloves, some even bringing pants as a precaution. Kelly Sparks, the Davis County Sheriff, spoke about the shock it was to get a call of this magnitude. “It's pretty rare, in our part of the country, to get a call that so many people are in need of assistance. We usually deal with groups of twos and threes. We got the call at about 9:30 a.m. that there were runners out on this high altitude course that needed assistance. We sent some SAR people on foot, some on snowmobile, and some on four-wheelers. Some went from the front of the course going forward, and others went from the midpoint backtracking. We needed to ensure everyone could get off safely.” When asked about the characterization in the initial media reports of runners being lost, Sheriff Sparks stated, “I don't think anyone was lost at that time, but the [race directors] realized that it could become a real situation, with the blowing snow and visibility. We needed to get people to a warm environment as fast as possible.” The DC Peaks 50 blizzard and athlete rescue is just the tip of the iceberg of this story. You have to understand where this this story starts with Jake Kilgore as a CEO of a major motorize wheelchair company and the journey to ultra trail running. Let's talk to Jake Kilgore. There are ton of details about Jake's experience that we did not get to: Kilgore, Jake. Trial Running: Learning Perseverance Through Life's Aid Stations (p. 41). Kindle Edition. The doctor's office is left with an Orbit prescription pad in order to make the referral process simple. This pad contains checkboxes and fields for the medical professional to order supplies and materials based on a patient's needs. Many reps would make minor changes to this prescription pad and other paperwork—adding a missed checkbox, filling in a date, or writing in “ninety-nine months” when the length of need is overlooked. Everyone knew it. The owners knew it, I knew it, and our internal reviewers knew it. Although this behavior was not permitted, everyone viewed these actions as not a big deal—and certainly not criminal. Kilgore, Jake. Trial Running: Learning Perseverance Through Life's Aid Stations (p. 36). Kindle Edition. I used every Sunday for a one-on-one phone call with each of my four kids, rotating through them oldest to youngest, one Sunday at a time. This was the best I could do to keep a close, private, trusted relationship with each child. I dedicated all fifteen minutes to that one child. If you only had fifteen private minutes a month, being recorded by the government, what would you ask your child? What would you talk about? Inmates were charged roughly three bucks for their fifteen minutes. Kilgore, Jake. Trial Running: Learning Perseverance Through Life's Aid Stations (p. 50). Kindle Edition. We heard the whispers, we saw the looks of “That's Jake Kilgore. The one who's going to prison soon. His poor wife and kids. Sad that his greed and unlawful conduct would do that to them.” We heard it all. We saw it all. Our News is sponsored by Buddy Insurance.

Endurance News: GUSTAV IDEN POISED TO CAPTURE TITLE AS PTO WORLD NO. 1 Professional Triathletes Organisation today announced that Gustav Iden is poised to be crowned as PTO World No. 1 for 2021. In his victory in Florida over the weekend at his first long-distance race, Iden scored 107.23 PTO World Ranking Points, the second highest score for a full-distance race in 2021, just below the stellar performance of 2x World Champion Patrick Lange at Tulsa, where Lange scored 108.88 PTO World Ranking Points. Combined with Iden's 110.18 points scored at the IM 70.3 World Championship® and the 111.34 points he scored at The Collins Cup, this gives Iden a nearly unassailable average of 109.62 PTO World Ranking Points. With Jan Frodeno, PTO World No. 2, announcing that he is not expected to race again this season, Iden is set to finish the season as PTO World No. 1. This will be the first year since the PTO Rankings began in 2016 that Frodeno has not been PTO World No. 1 and might signal that the Changing of the Guard has well and truly begun. The PTO World Rankings are based on the average number of PTO World Ranking Points that an athlete has earned for their three best races in 2021. Frodeno's best three races are 112.86 points at The Collins Cup, 107.51 points at Challenge Miami and 88.10 points at Challenge Gran Canaria, giving him an average of 102.82 PTO World Rankings Points. Should Frodeno decide to race again before December 31 and was to score 108.52 or more PTO World Rankings Points, he would reclaim the PTO World No. 1 ranking.

The inaugural Challenge Malta will take place on Sunday 15 May 2022 with a 113km coast-to-coast course that includes the country's most spectacular scenery. Malta packs a glorious variety into its small archipelago. Malta's landscape contrasts rocky stretches of coast that end in dizzying limestone cliffs with sheltered bays that hide crystal-clear water and red-gold beaches. Combine that with its exotic mix of Italian, French, British and Arabic influences in both architecture and cuisine along with 3,000 hours of sunshine a year and Malta is an exciting new destination for the long distance triathlon world. Wattie Ink is now Spaero Triathlon Spaero Triathlon, a California-based triathlon apparel brand formerly known as Wattie Ink, has announced its new brand name. The newly branded Spaero Triathlon is also rolling out a new line of advanced technical triathlon gear and an ambassador team program. “We already have a stellar reputation for technical, high quality performance apparel,” said CEO Ryan Cady. “We are continuing to build on that foundation by working with some of the most advanced fabrics that deliver improved thermal regulation and superior aerodynamics. “I can't wait to bring these new products to market with a new look and feel.

Coaches Corner: I have been using TriDot as an athlete for several months now. The more experience I have with it, the more I've come to appreciate how effective the training has been for me as an athlete. It's made me question how effective my designed training plans are compared to what TriDot provides. I design training plans and workouts based on my knowledge of my athlete, what I assess they are capable of, my training philosophy and what I think is the best future training based on what the athlete has achieved in the past. Summing this up. I'm taking all of an athlete's training data, combined with the filter of my professional training as a coach, my experience as an athlete and a coach, and my philosophies to create the perfect future workouts and training cycles. My crisis is admitting that my training plans are limited by my experience and filters. TriDot is using millions of records from tens of thousands of athletes to make hundreds of calculations to design the perfect workout and training plan. It then automatically adjusts based on your training and if you miss a workout. I am signing up to be a TriDot coach because I believe the platform is that good. But this has caused me to ask the question, what coaching services that am I providing do athletes value most in a coaching relationship? Question: Bill, it's been a while since either of us was actively coached, but question for you: When you accomplished your goal, what services did you appreciate the most? Here's a list of typical coaching services. I'll read the list and you tell me what your top 5 and maybe what would be really low on your list. That work? Assessing current fitness and realistic goals Designing a perfect training plan Adjust and redesign training for life events or injuries Test and establish athletes training zones Provide inspiration and encouragement Provide feedback and accountability for training compliance Teach best practices and safety during training Teach swim form, drills, bicycle handling and running form Teach strategies for mental resilience Assess hydration and nutrition needs and develop athlete specific strategies Teach how to setup devices to be congruent with training workouts and compatible with athletes gear Upcoming Guests Marianne Martin is the first woman to win the Tour de France in 1978. Marianne Martin (born November 1, 1957 in Fenton, Michigan) is an American road racing cyclist. She won the first Tour de France for women in 1984, covering the 616-mile course in 29 hours, 39 minutes, and 2 seconds. The race was held in July and had 18 stages. The women's tour ran the same time as the men's and finished 2–3 hours before the men each day. The year she won the Tour de France Martin suffered from anemia earlier in that year and had been riding poorly. At the race Martin took the lead after stage 14 where the race encountered the mountains. Martin was a good climber and never gave up the lead after that into Paris. The streets were said to contain more two million spectators watching the race. Martin, along with runners up Heleen Hage (Dutch) and Deborah Shumway (American), stood on the podium with male champions Laurent Fignon, Bernard Hinault and Greg LeMond. Fignon's prizes were valued at over $225,000 (adjusted to 2016). Martin was awarded a trophy and $1,000. Martin was inducted into the 2012 Boulder (Colorado) Sports Hall of Fame.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Freitag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Indiens Premier will kontroverse Agrarmarktreform zurückziehen Nach fast einjährigen Protesten will Indien eine kontroverse Agrarmarktreform kippen. Dies kündigte Premierminister Narendra Modi an. Tausende Landwirte hatten fast ein Jahr lang rund um die Hauptstadt Neu Delhi dagegen protestiert, in dieser Zeit lebten sie dort in Zelten. Modi rief sie nun auf, zu ihren Bauernhöfen zurückzukehren. Die Landwirtschaft in Indien ist ineffizient und viele sehen Reformbedarf. Mehr als die Hälfte der Bevölkerung lebt von Ackerbau und Viehzucht - die Reform sah mehr Privatwirtschaft im Agrarsektor vor. Deutschland und Niederlande zu humanitärer Hilfe für Afghanistan bereit Deutschland und die Niederlande haben der Taliban-Regierung in Afghanistan Unterstützung bei der Bewältigung der humanitären Notlage der Bevölkerung in Aussicht gestellt. Beide Länder seien bereit, "gerade mit Blick auf den nahenden Winter umfangreiche humanitäre Hilfe zu leisten", erklärte das Auswärtige Amt. Deswegen hätten zwei deutsche Diplomaten und ein niederländischer Diplomat hochrangige Vertreter der Regierung in Kabul getroffen. Diese bekannten sich zum gleichberechtigten Zugang von Mädchen und Jungen zu Bildung. Auch wollten sie humanitären Helfern einen sicheren Zugang gewähren. Diplomatisches Tauziehen um Ukraine-Gespräche Deutschland und Frankreich werfen Russland vor, vertrauliche Schreiben zum Normandie-Format zur Lösung des Ost-Ukraine-Konflikts veröffentlicht zu haben. Man betrachte die Publikation auf Veranlassung von Außenminister Sergej Lawrow "als Bruch der diplomatischen Gepflogenheiten", erklärte das Auswärtige Amt in Berlin der DW. Deutschland und Frankreich arbeiteten seit Monaten an einer Fortsetzung der Gespräche auf Basis der Minsker Vereinbarungen. Kanzlerin Angela Merkel äußerte ihr Bedauern, dass das angestrebte Außenministertreffen trotz einer Bitte an Russland nicht zustande kam. Seehofer: Deutschland hat keine Aufnahme von Migranten vereinbart Bundesinnenminister Horst Seehofer hat klargestellt, dass die Bundesregierung keine Vereinbarung über die Aufnahme von 2000 Migranten mit Belarus getroffen hat. Diese Meldung sei falsch, sagte Seehofer nach einem Treffen mit Polens Innenminister Mariusz Kaminski in Warschau. An der belarussisch-polnischen Grenze harren Tausende Migranten aus. Die meisten wollen nach Deutschland. Europäische Regierungen beschuldigen den belarussischen Machthaber Alexander Lukaschenko, in organisierter Form Flüchtlinge aus Krisenregionen an die EU-Außengrenze zu bringen, um Druck auszuüben. Tschechien führt in vielen Bereichen 2G-Regel gegen Corona ein Tschechien verschärft angesichts stark steigender Infektionszahlen die Corona-Maßnahmen. Ab Montag soll in Restaurants, Bars, Hotels und vielen anderen Einrichtungen die 2G-Regel gelten, wie der geschäftsführende Regierungschef Andrej Babis mitteilte. "Wir haben uns vom bayerischen Modell inspirieren lassen, dessen Grundlage ist, dass nur Geimpfte oder Genesene Zugang zu Dienstleistungen, Hotels und Versammlungen haben", schrieb er auf Twitter. Das Hauptziel sei, "die Menschen zu motivieren, sich impfen zu lassen", sagte Gesundheitsminister Adam Vojtech. Regierungschefs von Kanada und Mexiko zu Gast bei Biden US-Präsident Joe Biden will die Beziehungen zu den Nachbarländern Kanada und Mexiko stärken. Bei einem Treffen mit Kanadas Regierungschef Justin Trudeau und Mexikos Präsident Andrés Manuel López Obrador im Weißen Haus sagte Biden, gemeinsame Herausforderungen seien unter anderem der Kampf gegen den Klimawandel und die Corona-Pandemie, Migration und die wirtschaftliche Erholung. Zudem ging es um Differenzen bei der Autoindustrie. Es war das erste persönliche Treffen in diesem Format seit 2016. In der Amtszeit von Bidens Vorgänger Donald Trump hatte es keine solche Runde der drei Länder gegeben. Bundespräsident Steinmeier erhält Leo-Baeck-Medaille Bundespräsident Frank-Walter Steinmeier ist für sein Engagement für die deutsch-jüdische Versöhnung mit der Leo-Baeck-Medaille geehrt worden. Das Leo Baeck Institut in New York würdigte damit seinen langjährigen Einsatz für den Erhalt und die Förderung jüdischen Lebens in Deutschland. Die Laudatio hielt der Präsident des Jüdischen Weltkongresses, Ronald Stephen Lauder. Für die Deutschen sei "die Versöhnung ein unendlich kostbares Geschenk", sagte Steinmeier in seiner Dankesrede in New York. Es beschäme ihn, dass sich der Antisemitismus in Deutschland in den letzten Jahren wieder offener zeige.
Bars and restaurants are gearing up for a busy weekend in Hamilton - but as Covid restrictions squeeze serving space, they want bigger borders around where they can sell booze. Waikato is back at level two and many hospitality outfits are expanding their outdoor spaces to boost seating numbers. But that doesn't mean their liquor license extends too - meaning some tables can have a beer and others cannot. Now they want the government to step in and help, as they desperately try to recoup costs from lost lockdown earnings. Reporter Louise Ternouth and camera operator Marika Khabazi report from Hamilton.

For years, prisoners, activists, and legal advocates have been drawing attention to the inhumane conditions at Rikers Island, New York's most infamous jail complex. But the COVID-19 pandemic turned what was already a dire situation at Rikers into a full-blown humanitarian crisis. With cells grossly overcrowded, guards and medical staff largely absent, and an interior crumbling from disrepair, Rikers became a hotbed of contagion and needless death. What's worse, as Judge Jonathan Lippman recently wrote in The New York Times, “90 percent of the human beings subjected to the appalling conditions at Rikers are there pretrial, many because they cannot afford bail. Almost 1,600 have been waiting for a trial for over a year. Almost 700 have been waiting for more than two.”In this episode of Rattling the Bars, TRNN Executive Producer Eddie Conway speaks with Olayemi Olurin about the ongoing crisis at Rikers and the renewed wave of outrage from the public and elected officials who are demanding that the jail be closed for good. Olurin is a public defender and staff attorney at the Legal Aid Society and an analyst at the Law & Crime Network.Pre-Production/Studio/Post Production: Cameron GranadinoRead the transcript of this interview: https://therealnews.com/we-want-rikers-closed-and-no-new-jails-in-its-placeHelp us continue producing Rattling the Bars by following us and becoming a monthly sustainer: Donate: https://therealnews.com/donate-pod-rtbSign up for our newsletter: https://therealnews.com/nl-pod-rtbGet Rattling the Bars updates: https://therealnews.com/up-pod-rtbLike us on Facebook: https://facebook.com/therealnewsFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/therealnews

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Samstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Corona: Lage in deutschen Krankenhäusern spitzt sich zu Angesichts der stark steigenden Zahl von Corona-Patienten sind die Kapazitäten auf den Intensivstationen in Deutschland teilweise fast ausgeschöpft. Planbare Operationen müssen verschoben werden, Patienten finden eventuell keine freie Klinik mehr in ihrer Nähe. Für den Kampf gegen die Pandemie sind jetzt wieder kostenlose Schnelltests für alle möglich, die erst vor einem Monat weitgehend abgeschafft worden waren. In einem Aufruf haben 35 Mediziner und Wissenschaftler zu einem Umsteuern in der Corona-Politik aufgefordert. Jeder Tag des Abwartens koste Menschenleben, heißt es. Niederlande und Österreich wollen Infektionen eindämmen Angesichts schnell steigender Corona-Zahlen haben die Niederlande einen Teil-Lockdown beschlossen. Ministerpräsident Mark Rutte kündigte unter anderem an, dass für mindestens drei Wochen Supermärkte, Restaurants und Bars bereits um 20 Uhr schließen müssen. Zu Sportveranstaltungen sind keine Zuschauer mehr zugelassen. Österreichs Regierung will am Sonntag grünes Licht für einen landesweiten Lockdown für Ungeimpfte geben, wie Kanzler Alexander Schallenberg ankündigte. Es sei den Geimpften nicht zuzumuten, in einen weiteren Lockdown für alle zu gehen, ergänzte der Regierungschef. UN-Klimakonferenz geht in die Verlängerung Stundenlange Debatten über ein weltweites Stoppsignal für die Kohle und über mehr Hilfszahlungen an arme Länder haben den Abschluss des Weltklimagipfels in Glasgow ausgebremst. Neue Textentwürfe für die Abschlusserklärung sollen am Samstagmorgen vorgelegt werden. Zu Ende gehen könnte die UN-Konferenz dann wohl frühestens am Samstagnachmittag - statt wie ursprünglich geplant am Freitagabend. Während einigen Staaten die angepeilten Beschlüsse zu weit gehen, sind sie anderen nicht ehrgeizig genug. Umweltverbände warnten vor Verwässerungen in der Abschlusserklärung in letzter Minute. EU hofft auf weniger Migranten an ihrer Außengrenze Die Europäische Union sieht im Konflikt mit Belarus erste Erfolge bei ihren Bemühungen, die Schleusung von Migranten aus dem Nahen Osten zu stoppen. Die Türkei verbot Staatsangehörigen aus Syrien, dem Irak und dem Jemen Abflüge von türkischen Flughäfen nach Minsk. Der Irak kündigte an, in Belarus festsitzende irakische Migranten zurückholen zu wollen. Die EU wirft dem belarussischen Machthaber Alexander Lukaschenko vor, Migranten gezielt an die Grenzen der EU-Staaten Lettland, Litauen und Polen zu schleusen, um damit Vergeltung für Sanktionen zu üben. Merkel und Macron mahnen Stabilität in Libyen an Kanzlerin Angela Merkel hat sich für einen baldigen Abzug ausländischer Kämpfer aus Libyen ausgesprochen. Das dürfe "nicht nur auf dem Papier" geschehen, sagte Merkel zum Abschluss der Internationalen Libyen-Konferenz in Paris. Frankreichs Präsident Emmanuel Macron verlangte insbesondere von der Türkei und Russland, ihre Truppen "umgehend" aus dem nordafrikanischen Land abzuziehen. Deren Präsenz sei eine "Bedrohung der Stabilität und Sicherheit des Landes und der ganzen Region". Die Konferenzteilnehmer riefen auch zu "freien und fairen" Parlaments- und Präsidentenwahlen am 24. Dezember auf. Anklage gegen früheren Trump-Vertrauten Bannon In den USA ist der einstige Chefstratege von Ex-Präsident Donald Trump, Steve Bannon, angeklagt worden, weil er vor dem Untersuchungsausschuss zur Kapitol-Erstürmung im Januar die Aussage verweigert hatte. Ihm wird außerdem vorgeworfen, dem Gremium angeforderte Dokumente nicht übergeben zu haben, wie das Justizministerium in Washington mitteilte. Der vom Repräsentantenhaus eingesetzte U-Ausschuss soll die genauen Hintergründe der Attacke von Trump-Anhängern aufklären. Bannon gilt dabei als Schlüsselzeuge. Er soll bereits vorab gewusst haben, dass es am 6. Januar zu Gewalt kommt.

Mansoor Adayfi, “Detainee No. 441,” was imprisoned in Guantánamo Bay for over 14 years without charges as an enemy combatant. As detailed in the description for Adafyi's new book Don't Forget Us Here: Lost and Found at Guantánamo, “Arriving as a stubborn teenager, Mansoor survived the camp's infamous interrogation program and became a feared and hardened resistance fighter leading prison riots and hunger strikes protesting inhumane treatment and arbitrary detention. With time though, he grew into the man nicknamed ‘Smiley Troublemaker': a student, writer, advocate, and historian.” In this special episode of Rattling the Bars, TRNN Executive Producer, legendary Black Panther, and longtime political prisoner Eddie Conway sits down with Adafyi to talk about his new book, his time at Guantánamo, the human cost of the War on Terror, and about the battle for survival in the dark heart of American empire.Pre-Production/Studio/Post Production: Cameron GranadinoRead the transcript of this interview: https://therealnews.com/surviving-the-darkness-eddie-conway-speaks-with-guantanamo-bay-detainee-mansoor-adayfiHelp us continue producing Rattling the Bars by following us and becoming a monthly sustainer: Donate: https://therealnews.com/donate-pod-rtbSign up for our newsletter: https://therealnews.com/nl-pod-rtbGet Rattling the Bars updates: https://therealnews.com/up-pod-rtbLike us on Facebook: https://facebook.com/therealnewsFollow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/therealnews

She learned about triathlon and signed up for her first race a few weeks later. Seely was a member of the Arizona State University collegiate club triathlon team and a nationally ranked triathlete before her diagnosis. In 2010, Seely was diagnosed with Chiari II Malformation, basilar invagination, and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, which affect her brain, spine, and connective tissues. After her first surgery, she was back to competing seven weeks later at the USA Triathlon Collegiate National Championships with ASU. She made her debut as an elite paratriathlete in 2012, earning bronze at the ITU Paratriathlon World Championships that year. Then in 2013, Seely had her left leg amputated below the knee due to complications and increased spasticity in her foot. That would move her into a new paratriathlon category — but she continued to thrive, winning five gold medals on the elite ITU circuit in 2014. She earned her first two world championship titles in 2015 and 2016. At the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, Seely made history by winning a gold medal in paratriathlon's debut as a Paralympic medal event. She also competed in track & field at the Rio Games, placing sixth in the 200m. That same year, she was a featured athlete in ESPN the Magazine's Body Issue. Seely has been dominant in the women's PTS2 division since Rio, earning silver at the 2017 World Championships and winning her third career world title in 2018 after an undefeated 2018 elite season. In July of 2019, Seely won an ESPY for Best Female Athlete with a Disability. She faced significant health challenges in late 2020 and early 2021, spending several months in the hospital with endocarditis, severe inflammation of the heart. She returned to full-time training in the spring, regaining her fitness in time to earn a silver medal at the Americas Triathlon Para Championships June 27 in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin, a key selection event for the Tokyo Games. She says her biggest inspiration in life is her grandma for pushing her to be a better athlete and human and to make the world around her better. She also credits her service dog Mowgli as being a great training and life partner. When she travels for competitions, Seely collects postcards and mini silver spoons from each location. Her favorite spoon is a hand-painted ceramic spoon from Estonia, and some of her favorite places that she has traveled to are Northern Ireland and Poland. She says her name is spelled “Allysa” because of a misspelling on her birth certificate, and of her biggest talents outside of triathlon is creating DIY projects.

In this week's In the Dirt, Randall and Craig take a look at gravel handlebar trends, new bags from Post Carry Co, Craig's new strength training with EverAthlete, a new Bay Area bikepacking route and tease an ongoing discussion of social media and cycling in The Ridership. Bay Area Triple Bypass Route Post Carry Bags Whisky Spano Bar Support the Podcast Join The Ridership Automated transcription, please excuse the typos and errors: Untitled [00:00:00] Craig Dalton: Hello and welcome to the gravel ride podcast. I'm your host Craig Dalton. I'll be joined shortly by my co-host randall jacobs for another episode of in the dirt . [00:00:12] This episode is brought to you by our friends at thesis bike. Yes. That indeed is Randall's company thesis. Randall donates his time to the gravel ride podcast in the dirt series, out of an abundance of passion for the sport. But he also runs a company called thesis, as you know, is the maker of the OB one bicycle. [00:00:33] That is actually the bicycle that I ride. If you follow me on social media, you may see my custom painted pink. Thesis, OB one. I affectionately refer to as Mr. Pinky. Anyway, I wanted to give you an update. Thesis has some bikes back in stock. [00:00:50] As I mentioned a few weeks ago, they've got some of those SRAM rival access grupos in stock. So they've got bikes ready to go, but more importantly, they've just, re-introduced their bring a friend referral program. That'll get you $500 off an OB one. When you purchase a bike with a friend. Or if you have a friend that has a thesis. [00:01:13] You can hit them up for a $500 discount. So coordinate with the team over a thesis. If you have any questions, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org. [00:01:23] Or check them out email@example.com, they offer free one-on-one consultations, which is a great way to see if a thesis. It will be. One is the right bike for you. [00:01:33] With that said, let me grab Randall and let's jump into in the dirt. [00:01:37] Craig: Hey Randall, how you doing today? [00:01:39] Randall: I'm doing well, Craig, how are you? My friend. [00:01:42] Craig: I'm good. I literally just got done recording the pre-roll. [00:01:47] Talking about. [00:01:47] thesis, your company's new refer a friend program, which I thought was cool. [00:01:52] Let I let the listeners know about that, and I appreciate your efforts as a cohost of in the dirt, but separately, when you wear your thesis bike company, hat. I do appreciate the time to time financial support you provide the podcast. Because it really is the type of thing that keeps the balls rolling around here. [00:02:10] Randall: For sure. Yeah. In our bring your friend program is actually something we did before and had to pull when supply chains went sideways. And now that we have bikes in stock, we'd much rather reward the community rather than. You know, paying Bookface or some ad network to, to reach people. So it's nice to be able to reward those who help spread the word. And then obviously, you know, with what you do, it's been very aligned from the beginning. So thanks for the opportunity to work with you. [00:02:35] Craig: Yeah. [00:02:35] absolutely appreciate it. Yeah. It's so ridiculous that there was like 15 months or more in there where bike companies just didn't bother advertising or promoting themselves because it was so ridiculously hard product into consumer's hands. [00:02:50] Randall: Yeah, there's really no point in trying to sell something you don't have. And don't don't know when you'll have it again. That seems to be. That seems to be a phenomenon that's going to continue well into the future for awhile. From what [00:03:03] Craig: Yeah. I mean, not to bring sort of macroeconomic trends in here, but I was just, just listening to someone talk about how in Apple's earnings call. There is some suggestion that. Supply chains are improving. They have not improved entirely, but that they are. Improving and that in the grand scheme of things, this will be a temporary blip, but temporary could mean two years. [00:03:26] Randall: Yeah. Yeah. In their case, they're dealing with chips too, which I'm getting a new chip Foundry online is a multi-year $10 billion project. So fortunately we don't have that in the bike industry. We're pretty, pretty low on the technology front, even with our. Wireless shifting, which, how did that take so long to come come about? [00:03:46] Craig: How are you doing otherwise? Is the weather starting to change on the east coast for you? [00:03:49] Randall: We've had some beautiful days past several days. We had a nor'easter coming through. So I did steal away for a trail run between, between rains in the should have some good weather on the weekend and otherwise loving being with family here in Boston, it's a very different lifestyle than the one I was living in the bay area. [00:04:06] And it's a very much aligned with where I'm at. Yeah. [00:04:09] Craig: We get, we got absolutely hammered out here by that rainstorm in Moran. I think we had the highest rain count in Anywhere in California. [00:04:17] that weekend. I think we got on Tam and there's 12 inches of rain. So it was, it was literally coming out of every pore of The mountain. There were new streams and waterfalls being, being created. [00:04:29] I mean, God knows we needed the water. [00:04:31] and is so nice. I wrote up the mountain for Dawn patrol on a Wednesday and Just to see a little water. [00:04:36] in places where it has been devoid. Void because of the drought was, was nice. [00:04:42] Randall: When I did see your, your conversation or the conversation you chimed in on in, on, on the ridership about you know, opening up a new you know, gullies and things like this in the trails. So hopefully they're relatively intact. [00:04:55] Craig: Yeah, that was fun. I mean, that's one of those things that you and I have always like thought and hoped would happen in the ridership. Just this idea that a writer could pop a message into the forum and say, Hey, we just got this huge rainstorm. How, how are the trails looking? Is it rideable or is it too. [00:05:11] As it a sloppy mess. [00:05:13] Randall: Yeah, it's pretty neat. [00:05:14] Craig: The [00:05:14] Randall: been training quite a bit lately, right? [00:05:16] Craig: Yeah. [00:05:16] You know, I was going to say The other good. [00:05:17] thing about the rain and not being, Wanting to ride my bike outside. [00:05:22] lately, as I have. [00:05:23] committed to a strength training program. [00:05:25] It's one of those things as I've nagged about my back on the podcast. Many months ago. [00:05:31] That I've actually implemented a little bit of a plan And I've been. [00:05:35] working via a company called ever athlete. And I became aware of them. [00:05:41] As one of the founder is Kate Courtney's strength and conditioning coach, Kate Courtney being a former world champion mountain Biker. [00:05:49] who comes from This area. [00:05:51] And what, what appealed to me most about. The ever athlete program was that they have a run specific program, a cycling specific program, and then basic conditioning. [00:06:03] after chatting with them, [00:06:04] a little bit online. And I had a phone call with them just as a general consumer. You know, it was advised that I start with beginner strength training. [00:06:12] And Totally. [00:06:14] spot on if I started anything beyond beginner. I would have been absolutely destroyed. And frankly, like some of the exercises. Do you have me sore in places that are not used to being sore? [00:06:26] Randall: So if somebody were to ask you, do you even lift bro? The answer would be not quite yet. I'm doing the beginner stuff first. [00:06:34] Craig: Yeah. [00:06:35] Exactly. Like I don't have tank tops yet and a special weightlifting gear and gloves that I'm using, But I have. [00:06:42] I'm on weak. I'm proud of myself. [00:06:43] I just completed week four of an eight week, week block. [00:06:47] Just getting my body's too. Basic strength training. I'm using a TRX, some elastic bands. [00:06:54] And just a few basic weights. That's not a exorbitant setup, I'm just doing it. And, you know, eight by eight area of My garage. [00:07:02] every other day. [00:07:04] Randall: That's great. Yeah, I've. I've gotten on a reasonably regular routine with a pair of 50 pound power blocks, adjustable dumbbells, which I'm a big fan of I've tried a few different types of adjustable dumbbells and these are the best have had. And just like doing a basic routine with not a crazy amount of weight and then adding some chin ups and AB work and so on squats and stuff like that, with that together with running and stretching, and I'll probably be adding yoga. [00:07:30] As the winter progresses and I can't get outside so much. [00:07:33] Craig: Yeah, you'll have to put a note in the show notes for me on that one. I'd be interested. Cause I know in ever athletes list of things that I may need. That type of wait setup is, will come into play at some point. [00:07:45] Randall: Got it. Yeah. They don't, they don't pay us, but I can definitely endorse the power block sport. And it's totally sufficient for me, even at 50 pounds, because anything that I do with more than 50 pounds, I probably shouldn't be doing anyways. I don't need it. [00:07:57] Craig: Yeah, I mean, good God Right now. [00:07:58] Randall, I'm basically doing almost exclusively body weight exercises. [00:08:03] 50 pounds seems a long way away from where my current strength training is at. [00:08:08] Randall: Oh, you can get a whole lot of resistance with just body weight too. So there's no need to buy too much expensive gear, but yeah, these are a good one. [00:08:15] Craig: Yeah. [00:08:16] totally. I mean, I think I'll walk away from this, knowing that just even, even strictly a body weight program would be hugely beneficial. [00:08:23] Randall: Yeah, I think so. I'm curious to hear how your back is feeling in a couple of months. [00:08:28] Craig: Yeah, for sure. [00:08:28] So I've got an a, as I said, I've got another month on basic, and then I think I'll just carry over into their cycling, their first cycling Specific program. [00:08:36] And I've been chatting with them. [00:08:37] and I think I'll have them on the pod so we can get just a deeper dive into. [00:08:42] Not just Their program. [00:08:43] but just strength training specifically, and the, and the value for cyclists to take a break and do something different. [00:08:51] Randall: I remember hearing a quote somewhere that the biggest problem with cyclists in their training program is that they only ride their bikes. [00:08:59] Craig: A hundred percent. [00:09:00] It's funny. You mentioned that because another guest I've got coming up is a pretty world renowned. Bike fitter, but he from the UK, but he wrote a book called the midlife cyclist. [00:09:10] And I'm going to dig into it with him, but yeah, one of the key takeaways is as an average, enthusiastic and passionate, enthusiastic cyclist. [00:09:19] we're probably riding more and closer to our, not more by volume, but closer to our threshold than professional cyclists do because We go out there. [00:09:28] and we hammer, you know, we're just feeling like we're out there for a good time. [00:09:31] And the best thing you could do is probably. Lose a workout or two on the bike and change it into some strength training or something. That's you know, testing different parts of your body. [00:09:41] Randall: Yeah, I look forward to that episode. That'll be a good one. [00:09:44] Craig: Yeah. [00:09:45] I'm super excited about it. I mean, I've just been thinking about it. In light of my own winter and what I want to achieve and how I want to set myself up for success next year. And success for me just means into being healthy and strong enough to tackle. You know, a big event or two here or there and not have it totally destroyed me. [00:10:03] Randall: Yeah. And I think that for some of us do I, I ended up talking to a lot of athletes who are. You know, or later in years, and just being able to know that you can, you have some control over your ability to ride well into old age and maintained flexibility and bone density and injury prevention and all these other things is you know, it's, it's it's a good resource for folks to have to, to know how to, how to approach that. [00:10:28] Craig: Yeah, totally. I've. [00:10:28] got another great episode that I'm recording actually immediately after this with Brian McCulloch. Ah, [00:10:33] Former pro road racer, former BWR winner, and most recently just won. I think it was The masters category. [00:10:40] of mountain bike nationals. [00:10:41] So Awesome guys. [00:10:42] super enthusiastic. And one of the things he was telling me in his coaching practice. [00:10:47] was that, you know, he coaches plenty of athletes whose goal is I want to complete the event and then be totally Pepe for the beer garden afterwards. [00:10:57] And he's [00:10:57] I'm Totally down with it. No one wants to just barely crawl across the finish line And then have to go to their car. [00:11:04] to take a nap, especially in these gravel events. We want to finish, we want to commune with our fellow participants and, you know, I think that's a. Admirable goal for anyone to not only cross the finish line, but be able to. Party Hardy as the kids say. [00:11:20] Randall: Yeah. It's you know, you have the combination of having endured something with, with other people and then getting to connect like the, the vehicle for connection elements shines out of that, that statement there, which is certainly why I ride. [00:11:33] Craig: Yeah, totally. And speaking of events I know I did a recap episode of Water, but I thought we chat about that a little bit since it's something you've participated in, in years past. [00:11:42] Randall: number of times. Yeah, this is actually the first year, the first time in years that I didn't go. It, I just reading the reporting. It seems like the. You know, the new stuff was relatively sparse. There's a couple of things that you and I want to, to jump into in future episodes with the new BMC. [00:11:58] Headshot, they're not calling it a headshot, but it's, it looks like a head shock and surrounds new flight, attendants, suspension, and so on. So that'll be fun to dive into, but I'm curious, what else did you see that was compelling? [00:12:09] Craig: Yeah. You know, I mean, it's first off for those of you who don't know, it's quite the festival. I mean, you've got everything from downhill and Duro, gravel cross-country road racing. [00:12:20] While I find it. [00:12:21] a bit overwhelming, the sheer number of cyclists and people that are there. At Laguna Seca. It is fun to see someone in spandex and a pro road kit. Riding through the pits next to you, a downhill kid with his full face helmet, shoved back on his head with a neck brace. [00:12:39] Randall: Yeah, absolutely. Absolutely. Yeah. [00:12:41] Craig: You know, from a, from a product perspective and manufacturer perspective. The number of booths was down. I mean, it still was quite a Hardy show, but I would say. You know, with the absence of the international. [00:12:54] Manufacturers. [00:12:55] coming is probably like 40%, less sheer booths. So it made it more manageable. Whereas now the last time they held it in person. [00:13:03] I felt like covering it in one day was just too much. Like I really needed about a day and a half or a day and three quarters to get around. [00:13:12] and make sure I poked my head in every booth That was out there. [00:13:15] this year was a little bit more manageable. I think in three quarters of a day, I had cruised around and seen everything I wanted to see. [00:13:22] Randall: Cool. Cool. And you only spent the one day. Yeah. [00:13:25] Craig: Yeah. [00:13:25] I just did a day trip which I think. Made me like it a little bit more. I mean, I think the last time we were down there, It was just such a cluster AF to, you know, get in and out of there with your car and you were parked so far away. So I found that this fit where I was at this this year. [00:13:42] Randall: Yeah we had a booth last time too. So we had all of that setting up and tearing down and so on. But yeah, hopefully by next year, it's it would make sense for me to get out there again, cause I've always enjoyed that. It's actually the only, the only time I've ever lined up at a race with like international. [00:14:00] Racers. [00:14:01] You know, just cause they you know, even if you were a low, a low level, regional domestic pro, you could line up in the, the UCI cross-country race. So you're not necessarily racing the same race, but burry stander was there and Christoph saucer was there and it was just like my moment of oh wow. [00:14:16] You know, getting to. Line up. 15 rows behind them. [00:14:20] Craig: You're like, I'm going to stay on their wheel and 50 meters. And you're like, I'm not going to stay on their wheel. [00:14:24] Randall: Oh, they, they started 20 seconds before I did. By the time everyone's actually rolling. So there's, there's no staying on any wheels regardless. [00:14:32] Craig: That's all. It's the funniest thing. When I'm at these big events, when they, they shoot off the starting gun and you're far enough back that nothing happens. There's no movement. [00:14:41] Randall: Yeah, the slinky effect. [00:14:43] Craig: Yeah. [00:14:44] But there have been, you know, there's been some cool stuff dropping lately that I think we should talk about. You [00:14:49] know, I think. We should jump in a little bit into the handlebars that have been coming out because I know. In talking to you. You had a particular design in mind that you. [00:15:01] thought was what you would design. If you. [00:15:04] were going to design a Handlebar. [00:15:05] from the ground up, and then lo and behold, someone came out with one that was pretty darn close to what you described. [00:15:11] Randall: Yeah. So I've called out this Aero Jaya. I think it's called my three T a number of times. And this was the closest thing to what I would design that I had seen. But whiskey just came out with a bar called the Spano. Or Spanno however they want to accentuate that a and pretty much everything about this is the way that I would design a bar. [00:15:30] There's a few things I would do subtly differently and I can definitely share that. But You know, it's 12 degrees at the hoods and 20 degrees to the drops and it's a compound flare. And so you don't have to have the same flare. At the hoods and in the drops, because a lot of the leavers these days have some flare built in anyways. I would probably go with a little bit less flare with the hoods to give it a little more roadie position, maybe eight degrees, but still. [00:15:53] For, you know, this is well done. It's a flat top design there. It looks like they've had some engineered flex. Built into, you know, what I would call like the wings of the bar so that you get some vertical flex. From the bar, which could help to, you know, negate the need for something as substantial as like a suspension stem. [00:16:12] I think that these compliance structures are our real opportunity to add. Compliance to the bike without necessarily having to add mechanical linkages and things like this. [00:16:22] Craig: Yeah. Yeah. I think that that, that compliance is something that people would really benefit from. And if, if, if the manufacturers can do it in subtle ways, I think it all adds up. [00:16:33] Randall: Challenges that different riders are going to have different needs in terms of let's just say you want to deliver the same experience to everybody. Then, you know, with a given handlebar under a bigger rider, you are going to need it to be stiffer in order for them to have the same experiences as a lighter weight rider. Who's just not exerting the same force. [00:16:50] So that would be one thing where, you know, that's hard to do without having two versions of the bar or some sort of tuneable flex mechanism, which is something I've played around with, but adds complexity. [00:16:59] I do like how the, the drop is really shallow. It's a hundred mil. The reaches is pretty short, 68. I would have the drop scale with the size of the bar would be one minor thing, because presumably on average, the, you know, the width of the bar is scaling with the size of the rider. But even that there's a huge amount of variation on that bell curve. [00:17:19] Overall, like. It's this, this is from what I've seen and what you can do with the leavers that are on the market. Because there's only two companies that make them and they control Libra design. This, this is the most interesting one to me. Hopefully we can get our hands on one at some point and provide a proper review, but it looks really, really compelling. I'm glad to see this direction towards compound flares. [00:17:41] Craig: Yeah. Yeah. [00:17:41] I thought that I was going to key in, on that. Those words you used compound flares, because I do think that's interesting because you know, one of the things that. The F the former roadie in me, I do not like when the, when the shifter lovers are angled into too far. And it doesn't feel, it doesn't feel great. And it seems if there's a. [00:18:00] If there's a design way too. Still get the flare you need at the bottoms while not overly adjusting where the hoods are, you know, that's a win. [00:18:11] Randall: Yeah. And, and, you know, in our bars, we went with a. Non-compounded 10 degree flare because it is, you know, the best, the most glared you can get without it. Really effecting the ergonomics at the hoods, especially with say ceramides mechanical road leavers that have a kind of a square edge. So if you rotate them too far out, you get a kind of a pressure point in the middle of the hand. [00:18:31] But yeah, it's a pretty neat handlebar. So [00:18:35] Craig: Yeah. And with everything. You know, I think you've gotta be tooling costs are obviously like the big concern and changing it. Dramatically. Size wise each time. And so you, haven't got to think about. How many sets of tools are you willing to buy to bring this product to market? Handlebar replacement. I don't know what kind of volume any of these companies do with their handlebars, but it's, it's a little bit of a balance there. I would think from a manufacturing perspective. [00:19:03] Randall: Yeah to, to dive a little bit into this without going too deep nerd. So if you're a big manufacturer, like a specialized or a track or something, you can amortize those tooling costs over a large number of bicycles that are specking that this handlebar at the OEM level, if you're doing an aftermarket bar, [00:19:19] It's a lot harder. And the tooling cost is quite material on an item like this, where it's low volume and you have so many different sizes. Usually it would be three tools. You'd have. You know, or at least the three component tool. So you have. You know, the two drops and then you have the center section and maybe the center section is a single mold. [00:19:38] With different inserts or even like you make one long one and then you chop it to the width that you want. And then you essentially bond on the drops. Which is where some extra weight comes in. So if you see bars like 250 grams or so if you want to drop 50 grams without compromising the structural integrity, that has to be a one-piece bar, which means. [00:19:57] An independent, large mold. That's that's moderately complex for every single size. And if you're only doing a few hundred units a year, which is a good volume for an aftermarket handlebar, that's hard to justify economically. [00:20:10] Craig: Yeah. [00:20:10] that makes a ton of sense. I'm actually curious, and maybe listeners can either hit us up on social media or in the ridership, ideally about how often. [00:20:18] People replace their bars. And is it the type of thing that When you're building. [00:20:22] the bike, you get that bar and you never think about it otherwise. Which I suspect, I know I've certainly been there in my bike ownership life. But I do think there's a decent amount of innovation in gravel bars for people to consider and just keep an eye out there for what are the performance benefits? How do these different bars feel? [00:20:43] When you put them on your existing bike. [00:20:45] Randall: I do think that one of the major constraints here is simply cost and that actually has less to do with the unit cost and more to do with having to amortize the tooling costs over. So few units. But I, you know, handlebars like a carbon bar on the one hand, it's somewhat disposable. If you design it, if you don't design it right. Where if you crash, like you really want to replace it. But on the other hand, the, the opportunities for compound shapes and for compliance being built in. [00:21:12] Negates may negate the need for more expensive and complicated solutions elsewhere on the bike to achieve the same goals. You know, I'd like to see if I could do a handlebar at scale, You know, the, the actual cost on something like this is for a tiny fraction of the actual sale price of, you know, 250 to 400 bucks on some of these bars. [00:21:31] Craig: Yeah. [00:21:31] That's the thing. I mean, once you've got, once you've got your bike frame. And you're not going to replace that. You really need to look at your attachment points as the, you know, how are you going to tune the bike? [00:21:41] Randall: Yeah, the touch points. Exactly. [00:21:44] Craig: On the other end of the spectrum. [00:21:46] curve had a bar called the Walmart. Out for a while. And curve is probably best known for their massively wide bars. I mean like 50 plus centimeter bars. [00:21:58] Very different riding style. They've actually gone the other way and introduced a narrower version of that. And I just think it's interesting to see them coming in. I mean, I can imagine that she super, super wide bar is a big part of the markets. I suppose it's not surprising. To see them go narrower. [00:22:15] Randall: They're also going with aluminum. You know, your tooling cost is. It's basically a jig. So it's not, you can do smaller volume and, and carve out that little niche for oneself, but yeah, they went with a 40 and a 43 with, it looks like here, but the. My concern would be the flare is so great at the hoods. [00:22:34] That you'd really want to be mindful of the shape of the hoods that you're using to make sure that it's not going to put a pressure point in your hand. [00:22:42] Craig: Yeah. Yeah. [00:22:42] I think it's a bar for a very specific customer. Follow up question for you on a aluminum versus carbon in the handlebar from a field perspective, what are the what's. How should people think about the difference in feel between those two materials? [00:22:57] Randall: It really depends on how it's engineered. It really depends heavily on how it's engineered. And I was. You know, the particulars of the material, how it's shaped, how it's drawn is it, is it. You know, buddied and so on, which is an actual budding process. And with carbon kind of same thing, like. [00:23:13] What is, what is the shape? What type of carbon is being used? What is the layup? You can make a structure that is incredibly stiff or very compliant you could add. I think loaf their bar, they're using some You know, some fancily branded. Fiberglass material in order to create you know, some, some even, even greater, even greater flex in the part of the handlebar, just beyond the clamp with the stem. [00:23:38] GT did this with their original grade and may still to this day on the seat stays, they actually have a fiberglass wrapped in carbon fiber. So fiberglass is what's used in like a fishing pole. So think about the extremes of flex that you can get with that before it breaks. [00:23:52] So there's it really just, it just depends, but in terms of the opportunities to tune flex and so on. Vastly greater with carbon, for sure, for sure. But this trade-offs with that. [00:24:03] Craig: Yeah. Gotcha. Gotcha. Hey, the other thing I wanted to mention in terms of new product drops recently was our friend mark at post Kericho. I dropped a couple of new bags. [00:24:14] Randall: Yeah, let's take a look at these. So he's got a new handlebar bag. Which these, these things are hard to. Talk too much about with action without actually experiencing one, but [00:24:27] Craig: Yeah. [00:24:28] I think the interest, the interesting thing about all Mark's stuff is he's a very thoughtful designer and one of my pet peeves around the handlebar bags, and it's got nothing to do with. Like general use of the bag. Is that with the zipper being up top? [00:24:43] With my bike, computer Mount, and oftentimes a light it's really hard to get at them because it's being pushed down and Mark's designed the zipper to be in the middle of the front of this bag. [00:24:57] I saw some comments about Alex, stuff's going to drop out. But I think at the end of the day, you're going to know that it's there and that's where it's located. So I think from a practical perspective, it's still going to work, but it would solve my personal problem with trying to get in there without unstrapping the bag from the handlebar. [00:25:14] Randall: Yeah. And this bag is also quite compact, this new bag in the mini handlebar bag that he came out with. And so I could imagine. Strapping it to the bar and the little strap on the back around the stem, as opposed to, you know, having to strap it in a way that may push cables or the bag itself into the head tube, which is a very common problem with these handlebar bags. [00:25:35] And you know, leads me to actually on my bike packing bag to have add straps in order to have it connect both to the bar and then to like right behind the hoods. So you don't get that rotational flop and it [00:25:49] keeps it off the head tube. But that's a [00:25:51] Craig: And are they get minimum? At minimum for anyone writing. Riding. You know, a lot, lots of types of bags, just consider putting some protective film over your frame in case there's rubbing. [00:26:00] Randall: For sure. For sure. Yeah, we, yeah. Good recommendation. [00:26:05] Craig: The other interesting one he came up with was this bomber top tube bag, which is a very long and, and Kind of not, not a big stack height bag that can go along the top tube or underneath the top tube. It's the, maybe three quarters of the length of the top two, but it looks like. [00:26:21] We're just, it's interesting. I don't think for me, it's like a daily rider type thing, but I do love the multiple different positions of it. And I could see for a bigger trip or a bigger day out this being like one of those bags that I just add on for specific purposes. [00:26:36] Randall: Yeah, And presumably it's a bit lighter than his existing frame bag, which I own, I'm not sure if you own as well. I'm a huge fan of that bag for, for bigger days on the bike where I need to bring stuff. [00:26:47] Craig: Yeah. [00:26:47] no. I imagine like running that quarter frame bag and then adding this one on top, you know, if you were doing some epic back country ride and wanted to maybe bring a full pump or what have you I think this is a neat option to add on and augment that kind of storage. [00:27:02] Randall: One comment I did see in one of the articles was this idea of, you know, maybe it would be a mountable on the bottom of the down tube. Which I actually think is a a space where, you know, a design, a bag that was designed specifically for that space could both lower center of mass. And Potentially provide some protection for that part of the bike from rocks kicking up and so on, which is a significant concern, especially when you get into more Tundra terrain on one of these gravel bikes. [00:27:31] Craig: Yeah. I think some more of the hardcore bike packing pack bag manufacturers have solutions for that area, whether they're building off the bottle cage, that's often down there and a lot of these gravel bikes. We're otherwise attaching agree. It's a, it's an interesting place. There's so many different nooks and crannies. [00:27:50] To jam stuff on these bikes with all these new modern bags. It's a, you're not, there's no dearth of options for you, depending on how you want to set up your rig. [00:27:58] Randall: Yeah. And the last thing we'll call out here is the the seat bag, which is a pretty standard, but really elegantly designed seat bag. And I just got to, you know, give a shout out for him on just the aesthetics of these bags. Then also the cost structure, like the seat bags, 30 bucks. You know, the, the bomber bag. [00:28:13] I'm seeing 35 bucks. So really getting like this high quality construction and design at a very accessible price point. So Bravo mark, keep up the good work. Good to see you. Continuing to put product out. [00:28:25] Craig: Yeah, kudos. Speaking of other things that people, we know, people from the ridership we're putting out there in the world. Some cool stuff on bike, packing.com. [00:28:34] Randall: Yeah. So our friends Emily Chung and Seth Hur from over at bike index. So you've worked with, did he do the full triple crossover? [00:28:44] Craig: He did. [00:28:44] Randall: Yeah. So the bay area, triple crossover, which was published on bike, packing.com over the past week or so, 161 miles, three to four days 65% unpaved and a really, a lot of great photography and so on. And it covers essentially from Marin. North of San Francisco all the way around the bay, back to south bay. [00:29:06] Maybe in the other direction, maybe that's how they finished up, but it's a, and there's actually a way. Yeah. And there's a way to, and we discussed this in the forum to connect to the bay area Ridge trail through the Santa Cruz mountains. If someone wanted to do an entire loop here, which [00:29:21] She, she very well may do at some point in posts, but a really cool to see members of the community going out and having good adventures and sharing the routes with others so that others can follow in the footsteps or pedal strokes. As we may say. [00:29:34] Craig: Yeah. [00:29:34] for sure. It's so valuable to have this sort of bait out there. And I love all the imagery. I. People should go to the bike, packing.com. Link and you can find it either in the ridership or we'll put it in the show notes for this episode, stunning pictures. And it's so cool. I think there's one picture I'm looking at right now. [00:29:52] Of the four of them riding across the golden gate bridge. In part of their journey looks like they're heading towards Marin and this pitcher just starting off. I just love it. I'm in such, such sort of iconic. Imagery around the bay area. And for those of you not in this area, [00:30:07] The idea. [00:30:08] that you could fly into SFO. Take a Bart train into the city with your bags or even write up and then start on this journey. From a major metropolitan area is just awesome. And even from some of the imagery, you would think you're nowhere near any sort of major city. [00:30:26] Randall: Oh, yeah, that was one of the things I loved about living in San Francisco was if I needed to be out in the middle of nowhere, I could be so with no one around in 45 minutes over in the headphones. [00:30:36] Craig: Yeah. Yeah. [00:30:37] exactly. [00:30:37] So kudos to MLA for all the great photography and her partners on that trip. Super cool and amazing that they put it out there. [00:30:44] Randall: Yeah. And another thing just to mention with this too, is a. They're in the forum. And so if this is something you want to do embark on one of the motivations, there was to be able to go to a new region and just reach out to folks and say, Hey, what's the beta. Hey, does anyone want to join me for a segment? [00:31:00] You know, one of the group rides going on and we've been seeing those dynamics, which is really cool. [00:31:04] Craig: Yeah, exactly. [00:31:05] I mean, it's so it's, so it's so great that there are so many sites out there that are publishing adventures and things like that. But being able to talk to people, locals about current conditions or. [00:31:17] You know, even advice for that. Ad-on you described down into the Santa Cruz mountains, like That kind of stuff. [00:31:22] is awesome. And invaluable. If You're going to spend. [00:31:25] a week of Your hard earned time and vacation and money in a particular area. [00:31:30] I don't know about you, but I, I just want to get the most out of it as, as possible. [00:31:34] Randall: Yeah, and this is something that you know, a conversation that sprung up organically in the forum and that we're going to be looking to facilitate a lot more conversation around, which is. You know, the role of, you know, what might be called social media, just online tools for connecting with others generally in the cycling experience. And so what is, what is a healthy role? What are unhealthy roles and how do we create something that. [00:31:58] Facilitates things that, that help people live live better in gets out of the realm of say what certain large players have been accused of credibly in terms of That's the same behavior that is not, is more in the interest of profit and shareholders. Then the the people that they've disk. [00:32:14] Describe as users. [00:32:16] Craig: Yeah. [00:32:17] that, that thread in the ridership's really interesting and some very thoughtful commentary. It's fascinating how different people view different platforms. You know, obviously you've got mainstream social media and then more cycling specific sites that kind of serve similar purposes.

Chris has been SUPER productive these past couple days. We get into some PE horror stories and other gym woes. Jessie gives us the scoop from Jessieland, she went out in Brooklyn and took some shots. We talk about pre nups and marrying for money before the time gets away from us. It's nice when that happens once in awhile, it feels organic. If you need more hit the Patreon, you won't regret!
