Links of interest
The most interesting links I have found this week. Almost all of them are curious news related to sport.
- New York City Marathon, thus was born - Brief history of how what is now the most famous race in the world was born.
- Birth and death of a power meter project Interesting article where he tells all the details behind the story of Brim Brothers (the power meter project that is placed - or was placed - in the shoe). It serves to realize all the difficulties that surround a project of this magnitude.
- How do you make the brands of bicycles? - Well, you can tell "just" by cutting a picture in half. Of course, not everyone has access to do something like that, right? There's always youtube...
- Interview with Ramón Arroyo - With the recently released film "100 Meters", the media exposure continues not only for Ramon, but also for his illness. It's incredible that someone capable of doing an ironman tomorrow has to fight to serve water from a bottle. That's how the illness is. But "giving up is not an option".
- All the marathons in Spain - Guide of @Pancho_Quevedo with all the marathons that are celebrated in Spain, recently updated for 2017.
- Triathlon cars - There is no doubt that running (not athletics) and triathlon are in fashion, so much so that cars are even presented with this sport in mind (even if they are just concepts that go nowhere).
Still, it's always good news that they remember minority sports. And they're not the first to think of bike solutions, in fact Honda presented a few months ago a solution that has already become a realityHere, however, the advantage is held by Opel, with its Flex-Fix system.
- While some win... - Garmin presents results for the third quarter with a significant increase in its Fitness and Outdoor departments, which are the ones that are growing the most within the brand. Meanwhile Fitbit soaked his beards preparing for a weak fourth quarter.
- Mio gets $15M funding - Mio has been gone for a while, in fact, they have lost strength. Their technology is no longer present in watches (TomTom switched to the LifeQ sensor while Garmin only had the 225 with their technology) and the only product they introduced almost a year ago, Mio SliceHopefully, this new injection of money will be converted into new products and improved technology to, for example, allow the reading of pulse variability with the optical sensor.
And with that... thanks for reading!
