Those civic-minded chaps at TS-Associates are participating in The Alpine Challenge in early September – cycling a series of mountain stages in the French Alps – all for the UK Youth charity.
The company is fielding a four-person team (though not CEO Henry Young, as he claims he has a bad knee), who will compete in timed trials of up to 120 kilometres – 75 miles – per day. That’s about four times the distance from Nasdaq in Carteret, NJ to Direct Edge, at Equinix NY4 in Secaucus, NJ. Fibre connectivity providers could cover that distance in about 600 nanoseconds. It’s likely that the TS-Associates team will take a tad longer, possibly due to performance-degrading beverages along the way.
