With winter approximately 5 months away now is as good a time as any to start planning for what could be a frosty winter. Getting up at the crack of dawn to do a 10-mile run or cycle in sub-zero temperatures is not only potentially-dangerous but downright unpleasant as well...

The Sports Techie community blog chatted from Atlanta to Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, via Skype with Steve Cranitch, founder of Run4, the sports tech company that invented the game-changing outdoor bike.

High Tech Tennis For The Sports Techie Community Blog

Sports Techie was asked by iQ by Intel to take a look at the way tech is changing how tennis is played via connected racquets, smart courts and technology being used at this year’s 2014 grand slams, however, since I am no longer a contributor and was sent this story I researched back, I will publish it on my own for our community readers and followers benefit.
