10 Riders To Watch At The 2019 Cyclo-Cross World Championships
This weekend is the pinnacle of the cyclocross season - the UCI World Championships. The 2019 edition will be in Bogense in Denmark, which previously hosted a World Cup back in 2017. In this video, Marty runs you through his 10 riders you should keep an eye on this weekend...

He seems to be able to ride away from his rivals seemingly at will, and his technical skills on a ‘cross bike are unsurpassed. The only thing standing in his way could be his mind - for all his dominance, he’s not held the rainbow bands since 2015 - something always seems to happen to him on the biggest race of the season. Will this be playing on his mind on Sunday? Or will he crush the field once more en route to a 2nd Elite world title? Wout Van Aert The nearest competitor to Van Der Poel is Wout Van Aert. It’s been a lean season for the reigning world champion with regards to wins - only 5 thus far, and all of them have been without Mathieu Van Der Poel on the startlist. He’s made no secret of his desire to focus on the road in 2019, and his form on the cross circuit perhaps suggests that. With that said however, the Belgian is a master of peaking for the Worlds - unlike Van Der Poel, Van Aert saves his very best until this time of year, and while the gap in class between the two seems large, you can guarantee whatever the result on Sunday, Wout will give the leaders a run for their money. Marianne Vos Vos’ name has rarely been seen on a cyclocross startlist this season, but despite starting just 12 races so far (13 presumably after the weekend?) she’s won seven and leads the world cup overall. Having suffered in the past with burnout from too much racing, it seems that the decrease in racing has not affected her sharpness. However, the quality of the elite women’s field runs very deep, and there are several riders that could get in the way of Vos’ bid for an unprecedented 8th cyclocross world title.

Working Remotely Is Not Necessarily Stress-Free

Many believe that working from home or remotely can foster freedom and stress-free job satisfaction, and that everyone wants  more work autonomy.A new study from Baylor University in Waco, Texas, says “Not so fast.”In the study, researchers examined the impact of remote work on employee well-being. Their findings suggest that a variety of factors can undermine or accent the employee benefits of working off-site.Accordingly, researchers developed new strategies to help managers provide remote-work opportunities that are valuable to the employee and the company.“Any organization, regardless of the extent to which people work remotely, needs to consider well-being of their employees as they implement more flexible working practices,” the researchers wrote.The study appears in the European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology.In the review, a total of 403 working adults were surveyed for the two studies that made up the research, said lead author Sara Perry, Ph.D.Researchers meas…

For Many with Severe Mental Illness, Spirituality Plays Role in Well-Being

A majority of young adults with severe mental illness, such as major depression, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, consider religion and spirituality relevant to their mental health, according to a new study published in the journal Spirituality in Clinical Practice.For the study, researchers from Baylor University interviewed a racially diverse sample of 55 young adults (ages 18-25) with serious mental illness who had used crisis emergency services. Their findings suggest that religion is an important issue to patients, but one that is rarely addressed in a health care setting.“Not only did these young adults struggle with serious mental illness, but they had also experienced extreme adversity — including abuse, poverty, homelessness, addiction, near-death experiences, loss and an overwhelming lack of access to medical and mental health services,” writes lead author Holly Oxhandler, Ph.D., associate dean for research and faculty development in the Garland School of Social Work at Ba…
