Interview with Dave Scott:

Scott ran his first Ironman in 1980 and finished in 9:24:33, nearly 2 hours faster than the previous win, with ABC Wide World of Sports broadcasting the event from Kona for the first time. Scott's time and approach is widely considered to have changed the Ironman from a test of endurance to a race. Scott returned in 1982 and finished second. In 1983, Scott won in what was Mark Allen's first Ironman. In what would become a renowned rivalry, Scott would win three of the next four Ironmans over Allen.

Scott has stated that he is most proud of his performance in 1994. Another second-place finish, Scott was 40 years old at the time so his race was considered to be a revolutionary feat. Two years later, Scott finished fifth overall. 2001 was his last foray into the Ironman. The 47-year-old Scott had back problems due to some last minute bike changes, which forced him out of the race.

Ironwar

In 1989, the rivalry between Scott and Allen reached a peak in what has alternately been called the "Ironwar" and "The Greatest Race Ever Run."[5] Scott has stated "I never focused my goals on Mark Allen or what I had to do in the swim or the bike compared to Mark Allen. Ultimately, the competition level sometimes dictated that. After many years of racing, in 1989, we had a very very close race. It seemed like we were bouncing off of one another. It was influenced by our competitive natures." Allen ultimately won with Scott placing second and both broke Scott’s course record.

What we just learned about taking care of your heart and the damage that can be done with regular long hard workouts.  Wow!

I don't know how I got the coaching years wrong.  It's on the Dave Scott website as over 40 years.

Mo Farah to participate in London Marathon as pacemaker

If you need a pacemaker to help you pursue an Olympic qualifying time in the marathon, they couldn't come much better qualified than Britain's most celebrated track and field athlete, Mo Farah.

That's the happy scenario for some of Britain's lesser lights who will have the 37-year-old leading them out around the streets of the capital in October's London Marathon.

"The London Marathon has been so important to me since I was a schoolboy and when they asked me to do this I thought it would be great to help," British marathon record holder Farah, who finished third and fifth in 2018 and 2019 respectively, told the race's official website.

"I am in good shape, I'll be in London that week, and it fits in with my training. I know just how special it is just to compete for your country at an Olympic Games, and it would be great to help other athletes achieve this."

Moneyball At The Tour De France: How NTT Is Bringing Analytics To Pro Cycling

NTT Pro Cycling does not have the financial might of the sport’s big guns, and over its four seasons on the UCI WorldTour, cycling’s elite-level competition, it has consistently finished towards the bottom end of the team rankings. Yet on Saturday in Nice, Africa’s first and only WorldTour team will be lining up for the 2020 Tour de France with a quiet sense of self-confidence. NTT has a card up the sleeve of its skin-tight, blue and black jersey.

“With the information we have at our fingertips, we prepare better than anybody,” says Doug Ryder, NTT’s Team Manager.

In collaboration with the Japanese tech giant that sponsors and lends its name to the team, Ryder and his colleagues have, over the past 18 months, developed an analytics-based methodology that has helped them recruit new riders, plan their season, and prepare meticulously for races. The new approach, they hope, will push South Africa-based NTT Pro Cycling to another level, both over the next three weeks in France and in the longer term.

Cycling is already a stats-heavy sport, and there are pro teams that have used data in the recruitment process for several years, but Ryder says it is the way that NTT interprets and presents the available information that makes their method innovative. “We’ve always seen technology as an enabler,” Ryder states. “What NTT has done is take all of this information and create the most incredible dashboard which makes it easier for us to make better, more informed decisions. It’s like the Moneyball approach. We find the individuals that are overlooked in the system.”

Cycling: Teams with two coronavirus cases in a week will be out of Tour, organisers say

PARIS (Reuters) - Two positive coronavirus cases within a week for a Tour de France team will result in the outfit being kicked out of the event starting on Aug. 29, the race organisers said on Friday.

“If a team has two positive cases or (members) with strong symptoms within a seven-day period, they will be out of the race,” Amaury Sport Organisation (ASO) said in a statement to Reuters.

Earlier, sports directors who will be on the event running until Sept. 20 confirmed a report by cycling website Velonews that the race would be over for teams who are found to have two infected members in their ranks.

“The measure was announced to us at the Criterium du Dauphine,” one sports director, who declined to be named because he is not authorised to discuss the matter, told Reuters.
