SA’s Kargo granted UCI pro MTB team status

first_img24 January 2014 In a first for the South African mountain biking community, the Kargo Pro MTB team has been accepted as a UCI MTB team by world cycling’s governing body. Phase one of team manager Shaun Peschl’s dream was realised on Tuesday when he received official confirmation from the UCI that his “team will be registered as a 2014 UCI MTB Team”, paving the way for the outfit to start their international journey and, hopefully, follow a similar pathway of success to that of South African road cycling phenomenon Team MTN Qhubeka, presented by Samsung.‘Thrilled’ “We are thrilled by the news that we can now officially call ourselves a UCI mountain bike team for 2014,” an ecstatic Peschl said in a statement on Thursday. “Looking at how far Doug Ryder has gone with his MTN Qhubeka team on the road, he has truly been an inspiration for us and we hope to have the same impact on the South African MTB scene,” he added. The UCI’s acceptance of the Kargo setup will see the “Proudly South African” outfit turn their full attention towards their short term goals while always bearing in mind their ultimate motivator: the Olympic Games.SA sponsors and bicycles “We really are very proud of the fact that almost all of our setup is South African. All our riders are from SA, our title sponsor, Kargo, is a South African company and even the bikes we ride, Momsen Bikes, are from here,” Peschl explained. “We had a really good pre-season and our season began nicely a couple of weeks ago. Now it’s all about fighting for every UCI point available. “Short term goals for us are to be as consistent as possible locally, to achieve good results at the UCI World Cups and the 2014 Commonwealth Games, and to have at least five of our riders compete at the 2014 World Champs, while our long term dream is definitely all about the Olympics,” he said.A major step in the right direction For the team cross-country ace Rourke Croeser, the news is a major step in the right direction, not only for the Kargo Pro MTB team but for the sport of mountain biking throughout South Africa. “It really is just great for cycling, and particularly mountain biking, in South Africa,” commented Croeser. “Hopefully this also starts a trend here in South Africa and other teams start taking competing internationally seriously as well. “The more UCI teams we have in SA can only be good for mountain biking in the country.” SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Solar Industry Sees Potential PV Panel Shortage

first_imgChinese production drove down pricesBetween 2005 and 2010, BusinessWeek said, Chinese panel manufacturers raised billions of dollars on Wall Street to finance new factories. They took control of the market from companies in the U.S., Japan, and Germany, and the flood of panels on the market drove down prices. That helped spur demand, but the glut also forced dozens of manufacturers out of business.In June, the U.S. Commerce Department imposed import duties on certain Chinese solar panels. The duties range from 18 percent to 35 percent, and were imposed to counter what regulators said were unfair subsidies. The ruling is preliminary, but the U.S. began collecting the tariffs just the same, The New York Times said.The tariffs may put additional pressure on suppliers. NPD Solarbuzz, a market research company, said more than 3 gigawatts of projects in the PV pipeline in the U.S. had been ready to use Chinese-made panels. But because of the tariffs, those companies may have to find other manufacturers or pay more, Solarbuzz said.Module prices have fallen to 76 cents a watt, BusinessWeek said, compared to $2.01 at the end of 2010. That does not include “soft costs” such as installation and permitting; the average installed cost for a residential system is $4.56 per watt, according to the most recent Solar Market Insight Report from the Solar Energy Industries Association. The global photovoltaic (PV) panel industry is facing the first shortage of panels in eight years as installations continue to pick up, according to a report in BusinessWeek.The article said the industry could install as much as 52 gigawatts of solar panels this year and another 61 gigawatts next year. That would be more than seven times the capacity of the PV equipment installed just five years ago, and substantially above the 40 gigawatts installed last year.The question is whether the industry has enough manufacturing capacity to produce the required PV modules.Among panel makers who expect demand to outstrip supply is Tom Werner, CEO of SunPower Corp., who said his company’s PV module factories are running at full tilt. The company is planning a new factory that would begin production in 2017 and would turn out PV modules with a total capacity of 700 megawatts a year.Canadian Solar CEO Shawn Qu also is expanding in anticipation of shortages ahead. The company began building a new factory in China in May with an initial capacity of 300 megawatts a year.And SolarCity Corporation is buying Silevo, a manufacturer of high-efficiency PV modules. The company wants to build a factory near Buffalo, New York, capable of building 1 gigawatt worth of panels per year, triple the size of the largest existing PV module plant in the U.S. now, according to an article in the The Wall Street Journal.last_img read more

first_img​Rodgers rejects talk of Leicester as title contendersby Ansser Sadiq7 hours agoSend to a friendShare the loveLeicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has rejected talk about them being title contenders.City are flying high in the Premier League, as they have emerged as the third best side in the league after Liverpool and Manchester City.But Rodgers knows that it is still a very early part of the season, and he does not think they have the depth to challenge for the title.He told reporters: “Yes [it is crazy to label Leciester as title contenders]. Everyone recognises that Liverpool and Manchester City are the top two teams. There is a group behind those.”We can’t forget what our objective was at the start of the season, that’s why we don’t get carried away with it.”We’re nine games in, we’ve made a very good start, and since we’ve worked together from February, the players have accumulated a lot of points and performed very well.”We’re very much at the beginning of where we want to go to and it’s a very long season. It’s been a very good start but there are lots of really good teams in the league.”I see the next game. That’s all I see. Football is very difficult to forecast.”I’m not one, especially now with more experience, I’m not one to forecast ahead over five games, 10 games, looking at so many points.

Animal Planet Star Jackson Galaxy Lends Support to National Feral Cat Day

first_imgJackson Galaxy is lending his support to National Feral Cat Day (October 16) in a new PSA filmed for Alley Cat Allies, the nation’s largest advocacy group for cats.Galaxy, the cat behaviorist responsible for ensuring cat guardians and their cats coexist peacefully on the popular show ‘My Cat From Hell’, reminds viewers that feral cats are not socialized to people and cannot be adopted. Instead, he encourages the TNR method: Trap-Neuter-Return.Galaxy says, “TNR helps reduce the number of cats being killed in our shelters each year—and that’s something we all want.”Video: The Scoop on Feral Cats PSA“We are thrilled to work with our friend, Jackson Galaxy, on this important educational mission,” said Becky Robinson, president and co-founder of Alley Cat Allies. “On National Feral Cat Day, we celebrate the growing movement to protect the lives of outdoor cats with humane and effective programs like Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR). We are grateful for Jackson’s support.”“My Cat From Hell is great entertainment, but Jackson’s work and mission are also critical—to educate guardians about their cats’ behavior, bring harmony to the home, and to save those cats from a tragic fate in an animal pound or shelter,” said Robinson.“We share that mission in our work, because feral cats who end up in shelters are almost always killed there,” she said. “Although more than 330 local governments have ended ‘catch and kill’ and embraced TNR, there is still much more work to be done to spread this positive change.”Alley Cat Allies spearheaded the movement for TNR in the United States in the early 1990s, and founded National Feral Cat Day in 2000. Hundreds of events are held across the U.S. to mark the day. A comprehensive listing can be found at www.nationalferalcatday.org.last_img read more
