Race Results of the Week: presented by Sportstats.One

Tidbits

The 57.8 second Cycling Mile: On June 30, 1899, Charles M. Murphy, rode on a wooden track behind a Long Island Rail Road train and covered a mile on his bicycle in 57.8 seconds, earning the nickname of Mile-a-Minute Murphy. That was before aerobars, aero helmets and skin-tight cycling kits, making it SO much more impressive.

Zillow Search - “Outdoorsy Town”: Boulder and Flagstaff are the Has-Beens of the ‘Token Outdoor Cities To Move To.” Check out THIS list for the most notable small, cute and outdoor-adventure towns to search obsessively on Zillow.

The Little Guys Deserve More: If you’re an athlete that races - you either fall into the camp that the corporate productions are the way to go, or you vehemently seek out those Mom & Pop races. Wherever you fall - support the little guys. We couldn’t do it without ‘em.

Thicc Thighs Save Lives: Chafing got ya’ down, down there? We get it. Biker shorts and leggings get old. Save your thighs & wear those booty shorts with our tried & true Saving Grace.

Treat Yo’ Self: Stop buying Nike Tempo Shorts and your socks from TJ Maxx. Check out some up and coming athletic apparel brands. Support Small Businesses.

  • Tuscany Trail: What’s better than eating your way through the Italian Countryside? Doing it bikepacking. The 470m tour takes you through the best small-town Italy has to offer. It’s not a race - so stop and eat every gelato, pasta and sandwich you can find. Buon Appetito!

  • John Muir Trail: The JMT is often overshadowed by his longer through-hike counterparts. Coming in at 219.3 miles long, and passing through the High Sierra mountain range through the Ansel Adams Wilderness, John Muir Wilderness, Sequoia National Park, and King's Canyon National Park, culminating at the highest peak in the continental United States - Mount Whitney.

  • XTERRA Tahiti SwimRun: As if you needed another excuse to start booking your trip to French Polynesia. Crank up your vacation endorphins and knock out a SwimRun before you spend the next 10 days sipping on Mai Tais.
