Bigham hails 'nailbiting' Mixed TTT relay as Great Britain bag bronze

Joe Robinson 22 Sep 2019 Great Britain pull off spirited ride for third as Dutch dominate inaugural Mixed Team Time Trial Relay Dan Bigham has praised the 'nailbiting nature' of the inaugural Mixed Team Time Trial Relay World Championships as Great Britain snatched a surprise bronze in the event. The Ribble Pro Cycling time trial specialist was part of the six-rider team to take third behind second-place Germany and eventual winners the Netherlands, as the event made its Worlds debut in Harrogate. Great Britain shipped 51 seconds to pre-race favourites the Netherlands, who dominated the 28km course, but benefited from an Elisa Longo Borghini puncture to finish nine seconds ahead of Italy to secure a podium soit. Criticism had been raised before the race about the format which saw teams divided into three male and three female athletes with each completing one lap of a 14km loop. Some, like Deceuninck-Quickstep ...

Dear Dave, what if my occupancy and payroll costs are higher than ideal?

Photo by Annie Theby on Unsplash

Editor's note: David DeKeyser and his wife Rebecca Cleveland owned and operated The Bike Hub in De Pere, Wisconsin, for nearly 18 years. Last year, they sold the business and real estate to another retailer based in a nearby community. In last week's Positive Spin column , David wrote "What you pay for your storefront and everything related (such as taxes, utilities etc.) should typically be under 10%. Your payroll expenses should be about 25% including owners’ wages." Many retailers find those levels unattainable in their market and have asked what they can do. We summarized those concerns in a fictional retailer's question this week. If you have more questions about retail profitability, email Dave at David@nbda.com , and he may answer them in a future column. Dear David, I read your first columns avidly and I've examined the NBDA's Cost of Doing Business reports. I find that in my ...

Caleb Ewan and Owain Doull join Mark Cavendish at the London Six Day

Joe Robinson 16 Sep 2019 Doull to partner Cavendish for track event at Lee Valley Velodrome next month Olympic champion and Team Ineos rider Owain Doull will partner Mark Cavendish at the London Six Day next month. The Welshman, fresh off of his Grand Tour debut at the Vuelta a Espana , joins Lotto Soudal sprinter Caleb Ewan as the latest big name to be confirmed for the Lee Valley Velodrome event. Doull's track pedigree could easily be forgotten with the 26-year-old having raced as part of the British WorldTour team on the road for the past two seasons. However, Doull is an Olympic champion having been part of the 2016 Rio team pursuit line-up that also saw Bradley Wiggins , Steve Burke and Ed Clancy take gold. Doull will ride alongside fellow Olympic track medallist Cavendish as the pair headline the six days of racing. Talking on his partnership ...

Liv Avail Advanced Pro 1 review

Maria David Wednesday, September 11, 2019 - 10:16 Giant has cranked up the 2020 edition of the Liv Avail Advanced Pro 1 4.5 / 5 £4,799 Built with endurance rides in mind, Giant has designed the 2020 Liv Avail Advanced Pro 1 to be light, ride smoothly and be comfortable over long, undulating distances, potentially off the beaten track. Typically, the woman riding this would be doing sportives or other long-distance adventure rides on road, with a bit of gravel or pavé too. Image 2 of 10 Image 2 of 10 Frame The advanced grade carbon frame and fork have been tweaked to accommodate the 32mm-wide tyres (where they were 25mm on the 2019) and thus give the bike a sturdier profile than before. This is helpful given that some rides will go up and down twisty and sometimes rough roads often encountered in sportives around the UK and beyond. ...
