    giro15st11-zakarin-finish-650

    Race report: We've had 'shoulder-gate' and 'puncture-gate', so we weren't sure what scandal-based pun awaited us this afternoon on the road from Forlì to the motor-racing circuit finish at Imola. In the end, there was nothing to get the polemicists too fired up, but we did get a new, young winner.

    johansson-cobbles-650

    From broken-boned tears of frustration to racing through her blue and yellow-painted Flemish home-from-home in just three weeks. For one of the most stunningly consistent female riders of the last 6 years, recovering from a broken collarbone is just one of many victories.

    giro15st8-gc-finish-650

    Race Report: Society has a thing against pickpockets; you don't want some little chancer coming along and dipping your hard-earned dollars when you're distracted. In cycling, you could say it's encouraged. Movistar's Benat Intxausti gave an object lesson today in the art of stealing a win.

    giro15st7-ulissi-win-650

    Race Report: After his suspension, Lampre-Merida's Diego Ulissi returned to the winner's circle with a perfectly-executed sprint finish in Fiuggi. It's not a result that will cheer everyone, but that's the way it is. The still-young Italian got a perfect lead-out from Sasha Modolo to score the win.

    giro15st05rp-rollout650

    Race Report: For such a stage to come so early in a Grand Tour... we had just about everything. A breakaway gaining big time, a frenzy of contenders attacking, escapees desperate to hang on. A slow-burning stage which exploded in the last five kilometers.

    Fleche Wallone 2015 Elite

    Race Report: As we'd see after five hours in the saddle, the new climb played a part, but the old school smarts of two-time champion Alejandro Valverde gave us a Fleche-Wallonne winner that was no surprise.

    50th Amstel Gold Race 2015

    Race Report: Limburg; the sun beaming down, tree blossoms gleaming white, fiercely green grass and a sequence of knife-edge climbs that cut riders to the quick. The Amstel Gold Race is as good to look at as it is hard to ride. A war of attrition hammered out across a picture-postcard, spring landscape.

    wevelgem15-paolini-solo-650

    Race Report: All but dead in the water on the final haul up the Kemmelberg - and there was plenty of it landing across Flanders today - Luca Paolini produced an outstanding and tactically immaculate win in Gent-Wevelgem today.

    Kuurne - Brussel - Kuurne 2015

    Race report: After yesterday's lemming-like ride into self-destruction, Etixx-QuickStep's riders would no doubt have taken to the road with Patrick Lefevre's team-talk thunder-clapping around their ears like a Pete Townsend power-chord from a 1970s Who concert. Today, they got it right in the end with a fine sprint win for Mark Cavendish.

    neo-pros15-650

    A new season brings some new faces to the Pro peloton, so Gordan Cameron has had a look at the form of the 2015 neo-pros and puts together his list of 'Top Ten' men to watch. The first year for a professional can be a steep learning curve, but these guys could be on the podium sooner than most.

    vos_livgiant-650

    After an exciting World Cyclo-cross Championships battle and the start of the Ladies' Tour of Qatar yesterday (Tuesday), Gordan Cameron takes a look at the 'Top Ten' women for the 2015 season. Marianne Vos is not at the top of his list, so you might be surprised with the line-up.

    giro14st03gc-confetti650

    The 2014 Giro d'Italia's Irish sojourn came to a close after three stages and our own Gordan Cameron was on hand to take it all in with Marcel Kittel being the sorriest rider to leave after two awesome sprint victories. After crossing from the north into the land of bilingual roadsigns, Euros, and kilometers not miles, Gordan was also sorry to see the Giro return home.

    taiwan-challenge650

    The third Taiwan KOM Challenge is on the 15th of November, 2014 and as PEZ reporter Gordan Cameron found out last year it is one amazing race. The KOM Challenge is the high point of the Taiwan government-supported 'Taiwan Cycling Festival' and is a true high mountain challenge. It's brutal, but has a beauty all of its own.

    worlds14mrr-kwait1650

    Race report: Poland got everything right today, with Michal Kwiatkowski putting the rainbow-colored gloss on a perfect team performance. Kwiatkowski soloed across to, and away from, a late escape group, and flew to a perfect solo Worlds victory.

    worlds14u23tt-flakemore650

    Race report: Well, if you're going to snatch a last gasp world title you might as well do it by the narrowest margin you can manage. Rainbow-banded joy for Australia's Campbell Flakemore, as the luck of the Irish deserted another pre-race favorite, Ryan Mullen. The winner's advantage? 0.48 seconds!

    vuelta14st19-hansen650

    Race report: In his what seems like 48th consecutive Grand Tour, Lotto-Belisol's Aussie adventurer Adam Hansen cruised home to take a massive stage win in Cangas Do Morrazo. Fortune favors the brave, and Hansen took his chance brilliantly, attacking off the front on a small rise as previous escapee Alexey Lutsenko was swept up.

    vuelta14st13-navarro650

    Race report: It's not often you get to take your best ever win in front of a home crowd, in your home Grand Tour … in front of riders of the calibre of Alberto Contador and Chris Froome. Today Cofidis man Dani Navaro did just that, with a scintillating late attack to solo home in the Parque de Cabárceno.

    Tour of Spain 2014 stage - 11

    Race report: The contenders chose to sort out their own private battles over the last kilometer of another intriguing Vuelta stage, which allowed the young Italian hero Fabio Aru to take a perfectly timed win. Contador hangs onto the overall, but it's getting close!

    Tour of Spain 2014 stage - 7

    Race Report: Italy's Alessandro De Marchi has taken a step up from most aggressive rider's award at the Tour by getting onto the top step as stage winner at the Vuelta. De Marchi was in a four-man escape and solo'd to the line. Chris Froome had a down-and-up day; from tarmac to time bonus.

    tdf14st17-majka650

    Race Report: Today was designed to be raced hard … from the flag. We had escapes and counter attacks, an ever-changing picture. The one constant was the polka-dot vision Rafal Majka, always in the action and ultimately grabbing the glory for a second stage win at this 2014 Tour.
