Leki: Legacy Lite COR-TEC AS (Men’s and Women’s) The Eddy Shirt from Stio has become our go-to mountain shirt. The water- and wind-resistant long-sleeve can take you from the mountain, lake, or river straight into the office. When you’re on the road and a washing machine is a few hundred miles away this is the shirt you want. It’s hard to keep clothes looking nice in a van, but we store our Eddies in our perpetually cramped drawers and they always look crisp every time we dig them out. Stio is a mountain-inspired apparel company born in Jackson, Wyoming. Their clothing is built tough, and our dirty wardrobe can attest to the durability of their products. We primarily use our Eddy shirts to shield the high altitude sun in the mountains. The Eddy offers a UPF rating of 50+ which helps when you are spending the majority of the day above the tree line. Above all else, the Eddy is comfortable and it looks nice no matter if you are in the mountains or in town – making at a versatile shirt for most occasions. This month has been a bit of a whirlwind, to say the least. We’ve covered a lot of miles and visited some of our favorite Colorado mountain towns. The days are still hot, but the mountain nights are starting to get that familiar chill in the air. Last night, in Crested Butte (where we’ve set up a mobile office for a few days) the temperature dipped to 38 degrees overnight, chilly! Our shadows have that late-in-the-summer look to them. While in truth – summer is still in full swing, we can tell fall is on the horizon. Thought the thought is bittersweet, it’s still pretty sweet. We love fall in Colorado. The mosquitos will finally be at bay, the crowded mountains seem to return to their peaceful silence, and the aspens shine bright with their brilliant hues of orange, red, and yellow. Maybe we’re getting ahead of ourselves… It is still 100 degrees in Denver today. We’ve been on the road for five straight months and we know a thing or two about gear that’s made to last. Check out some of the gear that keeps us groovin’ in this months Gear on the Go. Want to turn your current vehicle into an all-out adventure rig? The Falcon is the latest in Roofnest’s line of lightweight, easy to use rooftop tents. The Falcon attaches to any vehicle with crossbars using Roofnest’s Univeral Mounting System, and it takes just minutes to install. When collapsed, the Falcon is only seven inches tall, which helps save gas mileage. Really want to step your game up? The Falcon has two accessory channels on all four sides for mounting light bars or an awning. You also have the option to add a set of crossbars that can carry a bike, kayak, or skis. During our travels, we’ve seen many different styles of rooftop tents. None take you from fully collapsed, to open and ready for bed more quickly than Roofnest. The Falcon is equipped with gas struts that essentially do all of the work for you. There is also room in the collapsed tent to stash your bedding, so you know one your tent is popped, you can hop in and get some rest. Leki knows a thing or two about making trekking poles. They’ve been in the business for over 60 years. The Legacy Lite COR-TEC AS brings together all of that experience. These poles feature Leki’s ultra-lite, high-tensile strength aluminum shafts, and we can tell you from experience they can handle some serious abuse. (We even took a pair skiing this spring.) Available in both men’s and women’s specific versions these are the poles you want if you need something that can take a beating but also won’t break the bank. These poles are an incredible value and are the perfect all-round pole for any hiker in any environment. The COR-TEC grip keeps your hand happy all day long and the Dynamic Suspension System antishock feature reduces peak impacts as much as 40 percent. This helps protect your muscles, joints, and ligaments so you can hike longer and stronger.

By Dialogo October 22, 2009 International aid agency Doctors Without Borders (MSF) warned of a dire humanitarian situation emerging in southwestern Colombia. Turf wars over vital coca crops in the Ecuador border region of Narino have intensified and more than 12,400 people have been displaced there since early 2009, the Geneva-based organization said. “In most cases the displaced have received little or no help,” an MSF statement said. Local authorities have been “completely overwhelmed” and MSF is often left as the lone carer, the statement said. Doctors Without Borders began work in Colombia in 1995, treating victims of the long-running conflict between leftist guerrillas and government forces. Dissident right-wing paramilitary squads, drug trafficking gangs and common criminals also contribute to the complex unrest that has plagued the South American nation. According to UN figures, Colombia ranks second for countries worst affected by internal displacement, with three million people fleeing their homes over the last three decades. War-wracked Sudan, with its six million displaced persons, tops the list. Neighboring Ecuador says it takes in the most refugees in Latin America, including hundreds of thousands of Colombians. Quito argues the influx contributes to crime in the country, including the trafficking of drugs and people.

THIS weekend’s first round of the National Drag Championship is fast approaching and the proverbial warnings are already being sent out.One workshop on the East Bank of Demerara, in particular, is sending strong messages to the faster classes.S&D Performance, with owner/mechanic Shawn Persaud, believes that it has what it takes to cause an upset come this weekend.S&D, who have five cars entered in this weekend, are confident that their machines will be able to retain all their titles and maybe even give the unlimited class a run for their money.Shawn, the 1000ft eight and 10-second champion cars of the GMR&SC Drag Championship 2018 are both housed under the garage with Shawn’s son Damion holding the 10-second title.Apart from the two Caldinas, Persaud’s shop also has included two Mazda RX-7s belonging to Peter Daby as well as Randel Daby’s Toyota Supra.It is unclear what challenges they bring to the Ekanoo/Magnus GTR, recently acquired by Team Mohamed’s Enterprise, but one thing is for sure, the times will be longer.However, the team is confident of putting on a good show, come this weekend.Meanwhile, Chronicle Sport has been able to confirm more than 90% of the newly-constructed launch pad at the South Dakota Circuit.Cars were seen testing on the venue yesterday ahead of Sunday’s meet and the unofficial feedback is one of pleasure.The interest by international competition in drag racing locally is now renewed with the installation of the pad.That, along with the fact that the strip is being extended from 1000ft to 1320ft or a quarter-mile, is also something that the local dragsters are keen on trying.Competition is also expected from Suriname.Ticket prices for fans desirous of witnessing the action will cost $1 000 for adults and $500 for children.The event is sponsored by Mohamed’s Enterprise, BM Soat Auto Sales, Motor Trend Service Centre, Delco Ice Factory, Trans-Pacific Motor Spares, Supreme Ventures, Air Services Limited, PowerLine Auto, Cyril’s Taxi, Omega Brokers, E-Networks, Prem’s Electrical, Miracle Optical, Choke Gas Station and Super Bet, R.

By Rajiv BisnauthBERBICE closed the shortened opening day of their second round Hand-in-Hand Under-19 Inter-county three-day encounter against Essequibo on 107-6 yesterday, at the Lusignan Community Centre ground.Essequibo, deciding to bowl first, utilised the conditions well with off-spinners Amit Persaud (3-53) and Lance Roberts (3-14), claiming three wickets apiece. Junior Sinclair struck an even 50 off 104 balls with one four and a six.The 18-year-old Alex Algoo, who struck 175 in round one, made 22 off 50 balls with one four and a six. Garfield Benjamin and Nigel Deodat were left unbeaten on 13 and 10 respectively when play ended after 43 overs.The start of play was delayed by a number of soft patches on the pitch, but ground staff did their best in rectifying the issue. After four inspections by the umpires, the start of play was given the green light.However, grey skies prevailed and a sharp shower just after 13:00hrs further delayed the start of play.That shower had left the bowlers’ run-ups somewhat soft, and after two additional inspections by the umpires, play eventually commenced at 15:00hrs.Winning the toss and deciding to bowl first, Essequibo opening bowlers, Ellian Whyte and Adrian Rankirpaul, bowled well but Berbice openers Algoo and Sinclair were solid. Despite the gloomy conditions, the right-handed pair added 42 runs for the first wicket.However, a double bowling change worked for the Essequibians. Persaud broke the promising opening stand when he dismissed Algoo. Thereafter, Berbice lost Jeetendra Outar (2), Kelvon Anderson (5), Seon Glasgow (3), Shamar Angel (0) and Sinclair in quick succession.Benjamin and Deodat then survived some testing moments to the close. Play is scheduled to start at 09:30hrs today.Berbice, the defending champions, drew their first round game against the Select Under-17 team while Essequibo suffered a humiliating nine-wicket defeat against leaders, Demerara, in their first-round encounter.
THE venues for the 2021 ICC Women’s World Cup in New Zealand have been revealed, with the final of the prestigious ODI tournament to be held under lights at Christchurch’s Hagley Oval.The tournament will kick off with an opening weekend at Auckland’s Eden Park, while matches will also be played in Wellington, Hamilton, Tauranga and Dunedin.The semi-finals will be held at Tauranga’s Bay Oval and Hamilton’s Seddon Park, while newly installed lights at Hagley Oval will ensure the decider can be held as a day-night blockbuster.In all, the 2021 ODI World Cup will feature 31 matches between February 6 and March 7 next year.Australia captain Meg Lanning would no doubt relish a return to Bay Oval, a venue where she has struck three of her 13 ODI centuries.Australia last toured New Zealand in early 2017, a campaign that saw them play at Bay Oval and Eden Park’s outer oval, while they also played three ODIs at the Tauranga venue in 2016 alongside two T20Is at Wellington’s Basin Reserve.The remaining venues will largely present an unknown to the Australians, if scheduled to play there. Ellyse Perry is the only current squad member to have played at Seddon Park, while none of the current group has played at Dunedin’s University Oval or Eden Park proper.The complete draw will be revealed in March.While Australia’s thoughts are currently firmly on the upcoming T20 World Cup, to be played on home soil from February 21 and culminating in the final at the MCG on March 8, the 2021 ODI World Cup is another tournament they will be desperate to succeed in after a disappointing campaign in the UK in 2017.After heading into that event as red-hot favourites, they were bundled out of the tournament in a shock semi-final loss to India, while hosts England went on to win the final at Lord’s.“Our goal was to ensure all 31 matches will be played at the best venues, encompassing a geographic spread that ensured as many Kiwi sports fans as possible get to engage with the tournament,” ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup CEO Andrea Nelson said.“It was great to see the enthusiasm from so many cities bidding for a chance to welcome the best players in the world to their backyard.”Currently, only Australia, New Zealand and defending champions England have qualified for the eight-team tournament.New Zealand qualify as hosts, while Australia and England’s strong performances across the current edition of the ICC Women’s ODI Championship – a three-year, round-robin competition to determine the four teams who automatically qualify alongside the host nation – have secured their spots.Two of Pakistan, South Africa, India, West Indies and Sri Lanka will join them following the final round of the Championship, while the remaining two spots will be decided at the World Cup qualifiers in Sri Lanka later this year.
