English rider Truelove sends stern warning – ‘I’m not coming here to finish second’

first_imgWITH exactly one week before the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club’s (GMR&SC) International Race of Champions, the war of words has begun, the first of which was thrown by England- based rider Matt Truelove.Truelove, who will be riding for the Mohamed’s Enterprise team alongside American Bryce Prince, arrived in the country Friday evening, with the United Kingdom semi- pro speaking to the media on Saturday.“I’m not coming here to finish second, I’m coming here to win so that’s what I am going to do,” Truelove told reporters when quizzed about his intentions next Sunday.Racing aboard a Yamaha R6, the same type he rides competitively with in the UK, Truelove believes that it will not be ‘smooth sailing’ come race day but he is prepared for any eventuality.Asked about the track, he responded,” it looks like quite a lot of breaking and accelerating and trying to get the bike in the right place on the exit. So we’ll probably try today to get my head around the track a bit and see what times I can do and build from there.”“It’s quite wide so it’s not what I was expecting but it should be good. (In terms of difference) In the UK, the tracks are looked after better, with a few more corners and quite bigger, normally a lot longer but the corners are the same, quite flowing and leading into each other.”His only worry thus far is in relation to the local climate, noting that humidity may affect his stay here but he has plans to combat that.Nonetheless, Truelove will be in action later today in the first of his unofficial sessions at the South Dakota Circuit while Prince was expected in the country earlier this morning.Not new to racing, the Mohamed’s Enterprise team made its entrance into the sport via the quarter mile as it’s Nissan GTR currently holds the blacktop South Dakota record of 8.3 seconds.This year,however,in an effort to add more interest to the sport and to advance its standard locally, the company decided to sponsor two internationally famed riders.last_img

Syracuse redshirt junior safety Antwan Cordy out for remainder of 2017 season

first_img Published on October 28, 2017 at 12:19 pm Contact Matthew: mguti100@syr.edu | @MatthewGut21 Cordy, a 5-foot-8, 181-pound safety, left the season opener against Central Connecticut State in the first quarter. He appeared to have suffered a lower right leg or foot injury amid a scrum. He returned to the sidelines using crutches, with a brace on his right leg.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOn Sept. 9, Cordy told Spectrum News that he head a hairline fracture and expected to return for the Clemson game Oct. 13. That timetable was scratched when SU head coach Dino Babers said that week that Cordy had no chance to play against the Tigers.“I made up my mind before I stepped in the doctor’s office, no matter what the outcome was, I wasn’t giving up,” Cordy wrote in his Instagram post. “I wasn’t quitting, I wasn’t stopping. That’s not my pedigree, that’s not who I am so I’m not gone even entertain it.”As a sophomore in 2015, Cordy started all 12 games at strong safety. He ranked second on the Orange with 68 total tackles and first with 12 tackles for loss. As a junior last season, he switched to free safety and in the seven full quarters he played, he made eight tackles, broke up a pass and recovered a fumble.“Cordy’s one of the best players on our football team,” Babers said last month.Last year, Cordy broke his left forearm in Week 2 and missed the rest of the season.Toledo graduate transfer Jordan Martin has slotted to safety in Cordy’s absence. Martin is tied for fourth on SU in solo tackles, with 17, and has one forced fumble.Syracuse (4-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) has this week off and will play at Florida State (2-5, 2-4), the No. 3 team in the AP Preseason Top 25, next Saturday at 12:20 p.m. FSU lost to Boston College, 35-3, Friday night. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Injured Syracuse redshirt junior safety Antwan Cordy will not play again the remainder of this season, he announced early Saturday morning via Instagram. It’s his second straight season mired in injury, as he has played in only nine quarters over the past two seasons.last_img

Syracuse blows lead in 6th inning in 2-1 loss to Pittsburgh

first_img Published on April 20, 2019 at 4:56 pm Contact Danny: dremerma@syr.edu | @DannyEmerman Comments The dark clouds that had hovered over Skytop Softball Stadium subsided at the top of the sixth inning. With a 1-0 lead, Syracuse had two innings to close out Pittsburgh as the weather improved. But with two outs and runners on first and second, Pittsburgh catcher Walker Barbee launched the neon ball high into the newly blue sky in deep center.As SU center fielder Alicia Hansen tracked the pop fly toward the fence, Hansen battled the sun by shielding it with her glove. Instead, Hansen’s glove screened her view of the ball, which dropped out of the sky and hit the middle of the fence. Hansen would have preferred the the overcast weather.“It just got caught in the sun for me,” Hansen said. “That definitely should have been an out.”Hansen’s mistake allowed two Panthers to score and turned Syracuse’s lead into a 2-1 deficit. Syracuse (19-24, 8-9 Atlantic Coast) was in position to beat the Panthers despite mustering only one hit, but Pitt’s (8-38, 3-14) two-run sixth inning proved to be insurmountable for Syracuse’s quiet bats. A day after beating the Panthers by 10 runs, Syracuse wasted strong pitching performances and lost, 2-1.“Our pitchers gave us every opportunity to win that ballgame,” SU head coach Shannon Doepking said. “We should’ve caught that ball out in center field. Unfortunately, we lost it in the sun, and we let it drop. At the end of the day, that was a difference-maker.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse built its 1-0 lead in the first inning when leadoff batter Gabby Teran walked, then Hansen singled to right center for the team’s only hit of the contest. Teran scored from first as Pitt’s shortstop bobbled the relay throw into second. Starter Miranda Hearn stranded runners in scoring position in the next two innings and helped Syracuse maintain its 1-0 lead for five frames.Two batters before Barbee’s double, Doepking pulled Hearn in favor of ace Alexa Romero. In 5.1 innings of work, Hearn had allowed just three hits — none of which reached the outfield on the fly — by tapping into her arsenal of off-speed pitches. Hearn struck out four Pitt batters and recorded two 1-2-3 innings. Still, the pitching change was a no-brainer to Doepking and a smart move to Hearn.“I had all the faith in the world in Lex, honestly,” Hearn said. “I wasn’t angry. I thought it was a good move.”Romero inherited a runner on first base, and forced an easy out on a dribbler back to her. Then, she lost her grip on a rise-ball and hit Connor McGaffic on her front shoulder, putting runners on first and second. Then, Barbee stepped into the batter’s box and skied a 1-2 pitch over Hansen’s head for the two-run double into the sun.Syracuse went down 1-2-3 in the bottom of the sixth. In the Orange’s last chance, third baseman Hannah Dossett grounded into a double play to end the game. Romero’s three strikeouts in 1.2 innings didn’t matter, as Syracuse failed to generate any scoring chances.“I mean, we have Alexa Romero,” Doepking said. “If I’m going to lose, I’m going to lose with Lex on the mound. I’m not going to lose with Lex sitting on the bench.”center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img

Real Madrid have plenty of reasons to sign Reinier

first_imgFlamengo raised the top national title ten years later, and Reinier was a revelation actor in the conquest. His great performances were important in the final stretch, in which the Carioca team distanced themselves from their persecutors. He is one of those players who has the gift of opportunity and that if it appears in the last meters of the field it is to generate danger.A fixed at the bottom of the CBFWhere he has always been the protagonist has been with the canarinha. In the Brazilian Confederation they have followed their trajectory from a very young age. They have protected and helped him a lot in his evolution. The good deal has caused the national shirt not to weigh. On the contrary: has shown your best level when he has attended the concentrations. He already stood out in the U-15 and was one of the best players in the South American U17 which was played in Peru, although Brazil fell surprisingly eliminated in the group stage due to a four-point draw. Months later he was summoned to the World Cup, but Flamengo opposed. Yes that will be in the Pre-Olympic which is celebrated in Colombia from January. Despite his age, he has been summoned with the U23 to meet the objective of classifying Tokyo Olympics. The signing of Reinier Jesus by Real Madrid is a matter of official status. In one day, when the soccer player still Flamengo Coming of age, its incorporation will be announced. The idea of ​​the club is that it arrives to reinforce the Castile from Raul, which does not go through its best moment. However, the illusion generated by the new Brazilian pearl in the club is evident.Characteristics of Rai or KakaAt 17, Reinier has become an idol for Fla’s fondness for his personality and self-confidence. Soccer, it is difficult to find a player at his age with his intelligence and vision of the game. A mental speed that allows you to make a difference. Its natural position is that of half-point, although, being right-handed, it has a tendency to fall to the left side. Far from being a dribbler, its main technical value is in fast driving, always with the ball attached to the foot.His coach in Brazil Under-17, Dalla Dea, came to compare him with two cracks like Rai and Kaka. “I see it as a ten. It has the characteristics of both. He likes to get into the area and scores goals from outside,” he said.Good data with Flamengo in BrazilAs if that were not enough, he has a remarkable goalscoring intuition considering that he is not an area player. In the last season of Brasileirao I just needed 2.66 shots to score, being the second best player in this statistic. He was also the second in goal per minute: one every 118. He only beat the pichichi of the tournament, Gabriel Barboza, which he scored every 102. In total there were six goals in 15 games that only increased the interest of the greats of Europe. Three of them were leaving from the bench, proving to be a revulsion of guarantees for their technician, Jorge Jesus.last_img
