Bontrager Aeolus RSL 37v brings ultra lightweight carbon wheels to gravel bikes & cyclocross

The Bontrager Aeolus RSL line introduced their impressively light road wheels a couple months ago, and now that weight-saving rim design has made it’s way to gravel and cyclocross. Available in tubeless clincher and tubular, the Aeolus 37v gets a wider profile to match the wider tires, but keeps its 37mm rim depth. The idea […]

Spanish Grand Prix – looking for more answers at Montmelo

The second triple-header of this frenetic Formula 1 season comes to an end with this Sunday’s 50th Spanish Grand Prix. The race takes place at the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit, one of the tracks best known to the drivers who generally rack up a huge mileage here in testing.

The track. The track boasts a mix of high, medium and low-speed corners, with several direction changes, some climbs and drops and a long main start-finish straight and thus provides a real test of a car’s abilities. The final part used to be high speed, but now features a slow chicane leading onto the straight. Of the permanent tracks, this is one of the hardest when it comes to overtaking. With the sea and mountains nearby, changing wind direction can be tricky to contend with as it upsets car balance considerably. This year, the … Read the rest

Vandoorne claims Mercedes maiden Formula E win on home soil

Stoffel Vandoorne secures a maiden Formula E race victory for Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E Team after a superb victory at the Berlin Templehof Airport.

After taking Mercedes-Benz EQ Formula E’s first pole position, Vandoorne made a good start after beating Sebastien Buemi who just managed to maintain second after Rene Rast failed to make the move on the Nissan driver.

Down the back of the grid, it was former champion Jean-Eric Vergne who made the best start up to eighteenth place ahead of his team-mate Antonio Felix Da Costa.

Venturi racer Edoardo Mortara managed to get ahead of Robin Frijns into the first corner, but ultimately the Swiss-Italian racer lost out to the Dutchman after Frijns retook the place at turn 12 on lap four.

After overtaking Rast on the first lap, Nyck De Vries deployed his first attack mode (AM) which allows him to put the pressure on … Read the rest

P2 for John Surtees in a rare non-red Ferrari car | 1964 United States GP

The 1964 United States Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held on October 4, 1964, at the Watkins Glen Grand Prix Race Course in Watkins Glen, New York. It was race 9 of 10 in both the 1964 World Championship of Drivers and the 1964 International Cup for Formula One Manufacturers. The 110-lap race was won by BRM driver Graham Hill after he started from fourth position. John Surtees finished second for the Ferrari team and Brabham driver Jo Siffert came in third.

Graham Hill padded his tenuous lead in the 1964 Drivers’ Championship over John Surtees and Jim Clark by bringing his BRM home first at The Glen for the second straight year. Surtees was second for Ferrari, 30.5 seconds back.

The Ferrari team brought four cars for John Surtees and Lorenzo Bandini, but they were not in the usual “flaming red” that the race program advertised. … Read the rest

Apple Removes Fortnite From iOS App Store; Epic Games Files Lawsuit

Apple has removed Epic Games’ Fortnite from its iOS App Store after an update earlier today added a direct in-app payment system.

The direct payment option in the mobile versions of the game offered a 20{3851c0879557ceb6c70cddb6630c7df9a9750acfd53fffec21979e603af26faa} price drop of its V-Bucks premium currency, while paying through the Apple and Google’s App Stores remained the same price as before. Epic Games said the reason was over the 30{3851c0879557ceb6c70cddb6630c7df9a9750acfd53fffec21979e603af26faa} fee that Apple and Google charges for in-app purchases.

Apple then removed Fortnite from the iOS App Store over violating in-app purchasing guidelines in a statement to The Verge:

Today, Epic Games took the unfortunate step of violating the App Store guidelines that are applied equally to every developer and designed to keep the store safe for our users. As a result their Fortnite app has been removed from the store. Epic enabled a feature in its app which was not reviewed

You can’t always get what you want

When contemplating where Arsenal need to make improvements this summer, I am minded of that famous Manchester United tweet carrying a quote from then manager David Moyes. It’s probably quicker to consider the areas where the team doesn’t need a great deal of improvement. However, in the interests of satisfying the demands of this column, I have tried to condense Arsenal’s needs this summer into bitesize priorities.

GREATER CREATIVITY
One of the curious tactical developments under Mikel Arteta is that Arsenal have become an effective counter-attacking side. They have beaten Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City under Arteta’s stewardship. With wide-forwards like Nicolas Pepe and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, a fairly solid midfield base of Ceballos and Xhaka, three central defenders and a selection of adaptable … Read the rest

Bernardo Silva says Champions League no easier now Liverpool are out

Bernardo Silva has told his Manchester City team-mates to stay focussed – and that just because Liverpool are no longer in the competition – their passage to the Champions League Final is not guaranteed.

We’d argue that right now, Liverpool and City are the two standout teams on the planet.

City are easily the best side left in the competition, and we think only Bayern Munich might stand in their way – especially after watching PSG’s shoddy performance last night v Atalanta.

Liverpool were knocked out by Atletico Madrid before the lockdown, in very unfortunate circumstances after playing incredibly well at Anfield – but gifting our opponents a late goal via Adrian’s error.

“The fact that Liverpool are out, Real Madrid are out, it’s not going to make our path any easier. That would be a wrong thought,” Silva told Goal.

“We need to go game-by-game, be very focused, Read the rest

Aubameyang’s new Arsenal contract appears to be confirmed by brother in major hint

Arsenal fans seem to have been sent into overdrive after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s brother – Willy, suggested that the talisman has signed a new contract with the Gunners.

Willy dropped a massive hint whilst hosting an Instagram Live session, as he was just casually describing his days, he was inundated by Arsenal supporters to offer an update on Pierre-Emerick’s future.

Willy was asked to wink if his younger brother has signed new terms with Mikel Arteta’s side, he immediately obliged, almost as though he knew those questions were coming.

According to the Evening Standard, Arsenal’s skipper is on the brink of agreeing a new deal until 2023, that would see the prolific forward earn £250,000-a-week.

Mercato Roundup – Dest, Gosens and Reguilón

Juventus transfer journalist Gianluca Momblano has offered a transfer update on the Bianconeri’s plans for the summer transfer window.

Speaking to Juventus news site Juventibus, the Turin based transfer specialist offered a round up of what he believes is happening behind the scenes at Continassa.

According to Momblano, a three-man defence could be an option for the Bianconeri next season and is an option that Andrea Pirlo might look at, especially given that Matthijs De Ligt may be out of action until November.

In their search for a right-back, Juventus are reportedly in talks with Ajax over their young full-back Sergino Dest while they are also considering on-loan Real Madrid man, Sergio Reguilón.

On the other flank, Momblano reports that Juve have almost reached an agreement for Atalanta man Robin Gosens while the club also have an offer for current left-back Alex Sandro.

In the centre of the pitch, … Read the rest
