    US Cycling is under new management and the Giro is planning to start in Japan, just the sort of fodder for Lee Rodgers to get his teeth into. In Lee's eyes the US change can only be a good thing, but could the Giro money not be spent in a better way, the Giro Rosa?

    Sky rider Danny Pate is off to ride for the Optum team in 2016 and as a rider who hates doping, Lee said: "let’s talk about him." A 'clean American' rider from the last generation is quite unique, his opinions seem to have started a war of words.

    Lombardia Preview: Utter confusion was the look on my face when Alessandro handed me the old newspaper and said it was a gift. Upon closer inspection, I realized I was holding the official program of the 1952 Giro di Lombardia – in mint condition! Once I got over the shock that such a treasure still existed – I couldn’t wait to share it with PEZ-Fans…
