    New bike, new kit or new wheels, all great things to lift your motivation for a ride. The problem that Lee Rodgers has on his ride is not the 'bling' but the modern technology, well, any technology. Electric gears, tubeless tires and power meters are all there just to wind Lee up and ruin a good bike ride.

    The cyclo-cross season is upon us and what better way to celebrate than a 'Photog's View' from Angelica and Travis Dixon from the Holy Week of cyclo-cross in New England.

    Chuck Peña rode the Worlds road race course for PEZ to preview the sights of Richmond before the fans arrived. So it was only fair that we send him back with his camera for the week-end of the championships to get the 'Chuck Peña Angle' on all the action from the 2015 Richmond Worlds.

    The announcement of Ivan Basso's retirement from competition has thrown Lee Rodgers off his original subject of the Giro di Lombardia. As these things go, one thing led to another and he has broadened his horizons for a good rant at all things doping, team management, celebrity, the UCI and that man Armstrong.

    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…

    Photog's Veiw: I hope all the PEZ fans enjoyed viewing my images posted in Pelo Pics throughout this year’s UCI World Championships. I had big expectations for the venue and the caliber of racing I was likely to experience, and Richmond did not disappoint!

    Race Preview: It can't be the end of the season already! The Giro di Lombardia seems to come round faster every year. 'The Classic of the Falling Leaves' is this Sunday and our Lombardy expert, Ed Hood, has a good look at the history, course and who he thinks is not too tired to win the last Monument of the season.

    Photog's View: Normally when photographer David Gill goes to a bike race he is working and has a specific plan of action for the best possible photos. But at this years World road race championships in Richmond, David was there as a fan. No pressure, but a different view form the other side of the barriers from the 'credited' lens-men. David does Richmond:

    WK in Richmond - Roadrace women elite 2015

    The Richmond World Championships have been voted as a success with worthy winners all of whom took their victories with panache and élan. Lee Rodgers is in total agreement, but he also sees the importance of Peter Sagan using the opportunity of his win to talk of the World outside the bubble of professional sport. The World of Lowdown.

    The World Championships are in full swing and the men's individual time trial on Wednesday is a real cliff-hanger and more open than it has been for many a year. Lee Rodgers casts an expert eye over the course and runners for the Rainbow battle against the clock.

    To say I was disappointed to hear of the demise of the Bucks County Classic Road Race is a huge understatement. I really loved capturing the grandeur of a bike race on the roads I grew up on. John Eustace came through with a great replacement, the Reading 120. The course was a grand showcase for the country roads of eastern Pennsylvania.

    Just like Ed in Edinburgh, we couldn't let the Tour of Britain pass through London without sending our local corespondent, Sam Larner, to get in amongst the fans for the final stage 8. As it turned out there was such a big crowd he had difficulty seeing much of the race, but he did soak up the party atmosphere in the English capital.

    Lee Rodgers has changed his mind on the excitement of the Vuelta, due to the efforts of the young riders who have been battling over the final red jersey. But all is not well in the wider World - Actor Ben Foster has admitted to taking PED's to emulate Lance Armstrong in the film 'The Program'. The old and the new face of cycling.

    Roadside: The Tour of Britain kicked-off stage 4 to Blyth from Edinburgh's Holyrood Park in the shadow of Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags, only minutes walk from Edinburgh Old Town. It was just too local for Ed Hood not to get down there and soak up the atmosphere and take in the sights.

    Racing in Belgium is something many try, riders come from all over to partake in the unique World of daily battering from the cobbles, wind, rain and multi-talented riders. But it's a surprise to see riders from Bangalore, India lining up in a Flemish kermess. Ed Hood spoke to Naveen John to get the lowdown:

    Lee Rodgers has raced hard, trained hard and put his body through the mill for his cycling and then did it again for a comeback. In that time he couldn't understand how people could ride a bike and not want to race, or not ride a bike at all! Now he gets it and explains his 'road to Damascus' and seeing the light of cycling just for the fun of it.

    The Larry H.Miller Tour of Utah 2014 (2.1) stage- 6

    Tom Danielson's out of competition positive drug test has to be the topic of the day for Lee Rodgers. The Lowdown examines the hypocrisy of the Anglo favouritism - we are the good guys and they are the bad guys. Is this the end of the Slipstream Sports road? The Lowdown asks the question.

    Roadside in Aalst: Ed Hood had to drag himself away from the Paris finalé of the Tour de France and where did he go? Yes, another bike race. Chris Froome and Peter Sagan were there; Aalst was the venue and it was beer and frites all the way for Ed and Callum, in the Flemish style, to beat the post-Tour blues.
