Tour de France & Giro Rosa | The Cycling Race News Show
The biggest stage races on the men’s and women’s calendars have started - we’ll be looking back at the first two stages of the Tour and the first three stages of the Giro Rosa. Plus we’ve got the Sibiu Tour, the Tour of Austria, and the Climb to Kaiser, voted one of the top 10 rides in the USA. Limited Edition T-Shirts: Subscribe to GCN: Register your interest in the GCN Club: Subscribe to GCN en Español: The Tour de France - The biggest news from the first half of stage one was crash of Lawson Craddock - the EF Education First rider crashed in the feed zone, getting a nasty gash above his eye and clearly in pain, unable to put weight through his left shoulder. Froome, Porte and Adam Yates lost 51 seconds, Quintana and Bernal 1 minute 15 - not an ideal start to a three-week race for them, although their rivals won’t be too displeased. Up front, though, it was business as usual for Quickstep floors. The winning machine just cannot be stopped this year, and their lead-out for Fernando Gaviria was impeccable. They dropped him off with 200m to go, and from that point, the result was never really in doubt. Sagan came off the wheel, but then had to go immediately back onto it as he couldn’t match the power of Gaviria. Stage 2 followed a similar formula, with an early 3 man move, only this time it quickly whittled down to one. Michael Gogl succumbed to a bee sting and then Dion Smith went back to the bunch after winning the KOM point, leaving just Sylvain Chavanel up front alone. But he was loving it, the Vendée is where his team, Direct Energie, are from, and he’s a popular rider - this is his 18th Tour de France and that was his 350th stage. We had our first two abandons on stage 2 - Tsgabu Grmay succumbed to stomach problems, whilst Luis Leon Sanchez crashed, fracturing his elbow and four ribs - remarkably he did at one point try to get back on his bike. Up front, Chavanel was caught inside the last 10km’s, setting things up for a big bunch sprint, but the group was much reduced after a crash inside the last 2km’s saw Fernando Gaviria hit the deck, all hopes dashed for the Colombian on the day. Arnaud Demare was the first to hit out on the slight rise to the finish line, but Sagan was straight on and then around his wheel, and just about held off Sonny Colbrelli to take the stage win, and with it his first yellow jersey since 2016. He also now holds a 26 point lead already in the Green Jersey competition, as we head into the Team Time Trial today.

PET Imaging Agent Can ID Good Candidates for Depression Drug

A new brain imaging agent could reveal — before any treatment has been prescribed — whether a patient with major depressive disorder (MDD) is likely to respond to a particular antidepressant, according to a new study published in The Journal of Nuclear Medicine. No such marker is currently available in clinical psychiatry.Escitalopram (Lexapro), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI), can be an effective MDD treatment for some patients, but not all. During  positron emission tomography (PET) test, the tracer 11C-DASB targets the serotonin transporter protein (5-HTT) in the amygdala of the brain, a region associated with emotional processing.In the study, patients shown to have less 5-HTT protein were those who later experienced relief from escitalopram.“MDD is a heterogeneous disorder, which makes it extremely difficult to treat effectively,” said researcher Mala R. Ananth, a graduate student at Stony Brook University in Stony Brook, N.Y.“Optimizing treatment is challenging a…

Reducing Alzheimer’s Stigma Could Enhance Research

A new study suggests ongoing research on Alzheimer’s disease may be challenged by the stigma associated with the disease. This concern comes from the results of a national survey which discovered people may be afraid to admit they have early stage Alzheimer’s because of fear of discrimination — especially potential limitations on their health insurance.Researchers say these fears can hopefully be overcome by the development of new policies to protect individuals. Nondisclosure of early symptoms that may or may not be Alzheimer’s hinders a individuals ability to obtain timely care. Additionally, a person may miss the opportunity to participate in clinical studies that discover potential therapies.The finding are the results of a national survey about what beliefs, attitudes and expectations are most often associated with Alzheimer’s disease. The survey results appear in Alzheimer’s & Dementia: The Journal of the Alzheimer’s Association.“We found that concerns about discrimination a…

Hair Pulling, Nail Biting, Skin Peeling and Biting

All my life I’ve bitten my nails. It’s caused me a lot of trouble, especially with my bipolar mother who has always thought screaming and shouting at me (and often a smack when I was younger) would make me stop.At around 7 I also started biting and peeling the skin on my fingers which has caused a lot of social and health issues for me from being to ashamed to join in with prayers at school, to getting my fingers getting a fungal infection causing long lasting damage to my fingers.Soon after I started to pull out the tiny hairs on my legs during school assembles and by 12 I began to pull my eyebrow hair out.How can I stop doing this to myself? I don’t even realise I’m doing it half the time (I started biting the skin around my fingers just writing this and caused it to bleed a little). I’m afraid to bring this up with my parents because of how they have reacted in the past and I’m far too embarrassed to ask anyone I would typically trust. It has severally impacted how I interact with …
