first_imgOne of the largest bicycle manufacturers in the world, Trek Bicycle Company out of Wisconsin, broke tradition last week by launching its new line of high end mountain bikes in the mountains of Pisgah National Forest and DuPont State Recreational Forest outside Brevard. Media from around the world converged on the Appalachians to test Trek’s new line, including the Fuel EX (now available in the popular 27.5-inch wheel version), and the new Remedy 29 (introducing the new 140-mm rear suspension platform), and featuring the brand’s new RE:aktiv shock technology developed in conjunction with Penske Racing Shocks and FOX shocks. Trek’s global mountain bike brand manager Travis Ott said most launches in North America typically happen in Moab or Whistler or other major mountain biking destinations on the West Coast. “But we knew the Pisgah area would be all-time and with Penske Racing’s complex located nearby in Mooresville,” Ott said in a release, “this was the perfect opportunity to hold a global media event in Transylvania County.” More than a dozen journalists covering the event included BIKE mag, Bicycling, MTBR and Pinkbike from around Europe, Mexico, the UK and others. Mountain bikers love the flow trails surrounding DuPont and the more technical terrain of the Pisgah, perfect for testing full-suspension steeds.BIKE magazine says the shock technology is borrowed from Formula One racing, and a visit to Penske Racing was part of the tour.last_img read more

first_imgReader Man couldn’t tell us much about his origin story but he did tell 12 News he lives in a library and reads over 100 books a day. The superhero flew into the school Wednesday to read to students and see how they’ve been developing their reading skill super powers. The children enjoyed the hero’s visit. Today he read his favorite book, “Please Don’t Eat Me” by Liz Klimo. The book is about a developing friendship between a rabbit and bear. “Literacy follows everybody’s lives,” says Reader Man. “This is a skill we learn when we are young and we keep throughout our entire lives, we read everyday and sometimes we don’t even realize we are reading, and for that reason literacy is one of the most important things we learn in school.” APALACHIN (WBNG) — There was no bird or plane at Tioga Hills Elementary Wednesday but instead, Reader Man made an appearance. Reader Man began his mission in 2019 and is a part of the Teacher College Reading and Phonics Unit of Study.last_img read more

first_img– Advertisement – As vote counting continues, the reality that Donald Trump is on the brink of being defeated is dawning on Americans. Donald Trump, of course, doesn’t believe in reality. In fact he doesn’t really believe in anything except whatever it is, on any given day, that makes him feel less like the failure of a human being he is. As vote counts in places like Michigan and Pennsylvania begin chipping away at the early leads Trump had, and extending leads Biden has, Trump’s campaign has made a claim that it has filed a lawsuit to halt absentee vote counting. That has not happened as far as anyone can tell.NBC News reporter Steve Patterson posted video of “Large, animated crush of “stop the count” protestors trying to push their way into TCF hall in #Detroit where ballots are being counted.They’re being blocked by guards at the door. Pizza boxes are pushed against the window to obstruct view. It’s tense.” In the video you can see below, the group is packed up at the door. According to an update from Patterson, the group claims to be “poll or election challengers claiming that there aren’t enough nonpartisan challengers inside.” Ummm.

first_img MOBILE, Ala. – After winning the ITA/Wilson Regional championship two weeks ago, Suzana Cavalcante (Jr. / Sao Paulo, Brazil) participated at the 2007 ITA Small College National Championships in Mobile, Ala., and reached the semifinals in singles, before bowing out to the eventual National Champion in a three set match. Cavalcante also teamed up with Paola Arevalo (Sr. / Cali, Colombia) to earn a fifth place finish in doubles. In the national singles championships, Cavalcante reached the semifinals by defeating Northwood University’s Darina Berkova 6-2, 0-6, 6-1. In the semifinal match, Cavalcante faced BYU-Hawaii’s number one player, Elwen Li. In that semifinal match, Cavalcante had a great chance at the win, when she had a one-set lead and was up a break at 4-2 in the second set. However, the very consistent Li came back in the match and won in three sets, 3-6, 6-4, 6-2. Cavalcante then played for the third place position against the University of California in Pennsylvania’s top player, Helena Van Eysendeyk. Cavalcante played very well and cruised to a 6-1, 6-3 win to earn the singles third position at the national level. In doubles, Cavalcante partnered up with Arevalo and had a tough quarterfinal match. The West Florida duo faced the Abilene Christian team of Irene Squillaci and Aina Rafolomanantsiatosika, and came up just short by losing 7-6, 6-2. Cavalcante and Arevalo moved to the consolation draw and beat the Emporia State team of Natalie Villaflor and Marcela Bayon 6-1, 6-4, and the Northwood team of Ashley Neumann and Julia Goncalves 6-2, 6-1, to earn doubles fifth position at the national level.

first_imgEuropean Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley had a sense US Open champion Martin Kaymer was on the verge of producing something special and believes the “low maintenance” German will make an ideal team member at Gleneagles. Kaymer won his second major title with a dominant display at Pinehurst last week, setting or equalling numerous records on his way to a commanding eight-shot victory. It was the 29-year-old’s second wire-to-wire win in the space of six weeks after his triumph in the Players Championship, where McGinley was impressed by the former world number one’s reaction to the hard-fought success. McGinley, who had dinner with Kaymer late on the Sunday evening at Sawgrass, said on Tuesday: “It was nice to hear the debrief, but it was also very insightful for me. “It was very clear from what he was saying to me and what he was saying to his caddie that this wasn’t a rejoicing, shouting from the rooftops, we are back on the top of the summit again. It’s a start. “And it’s no surprise he’s followed it up six weeks later to win a major. He was very clear that this was the start of a surge and he’s been proved right.” Kaymer admitted on Sunday that he struggled to cope with the extra attention brought on by his first major title in the US PGA Championship in 2010, which led to an eight-week spell as world number one the following year. He also said he would not have picked himself as a wild card for the 2012 Ryder Cup team after a loss of form, but having secured the final qualifying place he had little choice and ended up holing the putt which ensured Europe retained the trophy after the ‘Miracle at Medinah.’ “He’s a very interesting guy,” added McGinley, who was a vice-captain to Jose Maria Olazabal in Chicago. “He gives a lot away about himself when he gives a press conference, he’s very insightful about himself and he’s very honest. “He’s a popular guy. Yes, he minds his own business and does his own thing but he’s a very loyal guy, loyal member of the team. And he’s an easy guy to pair. He’s not high maintenance. He doesn’t need to play with one player or another. “He’s kind of happy to be guided, whatever the captain says. That’s what we saw with Jose and Monty (Colin Montgomerie, captain in 2010), as well. There’s no reason to think he won’t be any different with me, hopefully anyway.” McGinley has named Sam Torrance and Des Smyth as two of his vice-captains for Gleneagles and confirmed on Tuesday that his other two assistants would be younger men currently playing on the European Tour. “I want to see who the 12 players are before I look at (vice-captains), but safe to say those two will be current players, players that are still playing on Tour,” added McGinley. Scotland’s Paul Lawrie is a likely candidate if he fails to make the team. McGinley was speaking ahead of this week’s Irish Open at Fota Island, where the likes of Rory McIlroy will be hoping to claim victory on home soil – assuming his clubs turn up, that is. McIlroy took to Twitter on Tuesday to complain that United Airlines had lost his clubs on his flight from Newark to Dublin, with the airline replying: “Your clubs will be in tomorrow and we’ll deliver them to the tournament for you.” Press Associationlast_img read more
