In his second attempt in as many days, Swiss man sets world record for longest bicycle wheelie in one hour

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again … in the same weekend.

A new world record was set Saturday for the longest distance traveled while riding a bicycle on a wheelie in one hour. Manuel Scheidegger, a Swiss free rider, traveled around a track measured at 30.95 kilometers (19.23 miles) in the span of one hour to beat the previous record of 25.86 km (16.06 miles).

Pinkbike.com notes that it was actually Scheidegger’s second attempt at breaking the world record this past weekend. He tried once on Friday and made it for about 45 minutes before a mechanical issue forced him to drop his front wheel, naturally ending his run. He returned early Saturday morning with his team to go for glory.

For 60 minutes, Scheidegger rode over 77 laps on a 400-meter track with one wheel up in the air and one person following him — they

A 30-year-old Santa Rosa man suspected in a car theft Saturday in Rohnert Park was arrested in Petaluma and faces numerous charges, including vehicle theft, robbery with a knife, and evading arrest, the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office said.

Goldman Sachs: These 3 Stocks Are Poised to Surge by at Least 50%

Is it time for the bears to break out the champagne glasses? Not so fast, says Goldman Sachs. Volatility has ruled the Street for the last few weeks, leading some to conclude that those with a more pessimistic outlook had been vindicated, but the firm believes stocks can still climb higher.According to Goldman Sachs’ head of U.S. equity strategy, David Kostin, the S&P 500 could still hit 3,600 by the end of the year, and 3,800 by mid-2021, on the back of vaccine-related optimism and progress with the economic reopening. This would reflect gains of 10% and 16%, respectively, should the index ultimately reach these targets.“Despite the sharp sell-off in the past week, we remain optimistic about the path of the U.S. equity market in coming months.

Motor racing-Perez could miss out on Sochi upgrade after Stroll crash

Sept 14 (Reuters) – Racing Point will have their work cut out to get an upgrade onto Sergio Perez’s car in Russia next week after Lance Stroll crashed in Sunday’s Tuscan Grand Prix.

Stroll’s RP20 car was the only one with the new package at the Italian circuit but the Formula One team had hoped to provide the same parts to Mexican Perez in Sochi.

“He (Stroll) did have the upgrade so now we’re going to have to do a lot of work to get enough parts together for both of them to have the upgrade in Russia,” said team principal Otmar Szafnauer.

The team owned by Stroll’s father had only enough spares to run one car with the upgrade in Mugello.

If they do not have enough for both, then the Mexican — who is leaving at the end of the year to make way for Sebastian Vettel –

Tire Discounters Helped Secure Essential Status for Ohio Tire Dealers | 2020-09-14

 

The question was top of mind during the early days of COVID-19: would tire dealerships be classified as essential businesses or not? 

While some waited for an answer, Tire Discounters saw an opportunity to educate government officials in its home state of Ohio, including Governor Mike DeWine, who would impose strict stay-at-home orders on March 23.

Working with the Ohio Council of Retail Merchants and the Ohio Tire & Automotive Association, Tire Discounters President and CEO Jamie Ward helped mount a campaign to convince DeWine that tire dealerships and auto service facilities were critical to keeping frontline workers mobile during the pandemic.  “My daughter is a nurse,” says Ward. “And it hit home pretty clearly that she needed to get to work.”

Ward and other association members “immediately began talking about how to ensure that our businesses were categorized as essential. We were really concerned that the tire and auto
