    May 30, 2016 - Vincenzo Nibali has won his second Giro, but either in a very cleaver or stealthy manner. We have a catch-up of the final stages, plus results and video from the Belgium Tour. In other cycling news we have the US champs, Critérium du Dauphiné, Paris-Tours, Battaglin re-signs and vido of Nibali with the Chaves family. A full EuroTrash Monday.

    Giro'16 Final Stage Roadside: The last stage of a Grand Tour can be a tad 'flat' - not this one; huge crowds, the stage winner disqualified and two of the top ten on the deck, including Esteban Chaves - right at PEZ's feet.

    Race Report: It was a damp start to the final stage of the 99th Giro but, despite several crashes, it was a red-hot sprint that saw the man already in Red finally get the win to go with the jersey - Nizzolo. And then, after the celebrations it was announced that he’d been disqualified!

    GIRO'16 Roadside St.20: PEZ was on the roads over the Col de la Bonette and the colle dell'Lomarda as Vincenzo Nibali turned this Giro around on the storming final day in the Alps. It's time to go roadside at the Giro!

    GIRO'16 St.20 Race Report: Vincenzo Nibali staged one of cycling's biggest comebacks on this penultimate day, attacking race leader Esteban Chavez inside 20km to take a commanding lead as the race is all but over.

    Giro'16 ROADSIDE: We'd gambled on a big attack by Chaves at high altitude, today. It didn't come and yet again, Kruijswijk looked strong as a beast within 1500 metres of the Giro's highest point - the 2744 metre Colle Dell'Agnello. Little did we know that minutes after the maglia rosa passed us he'd crash on the descent and the race would be turned on its head.

    giro16st19-nibaligroup940

    Race Report: Stage 19 was a day of high mountains and high drama as the race passed over the Cima Coppi. Unable to lose Kruijswijk on the climb, it was an unfortunate crash on the descent that saw the Dutchman chasing and losing time all the way into France. Nibali could smell victory for both the stage and the overall and set about re-establishing his enviable reputation as a Grand Tour winner!

    giro16st18pre-01alps-940

    Stage Preview: Stage 18 from Muggio to Pinerolo features two very tough little climbs right at the end - the Par'Martino, and the San Maurizio. I rode these when the Giro finished here in 2009. The difference this time is they're being taken in reverse, turning what was a tough climb followed a very dangerous descent into an even tougher climb with a still challenging drop through narrow, twisty wooded roads, and a 20% kicker to finish it off.

    PEZ Roadside: Stage 17 and Ed Hood moves on from one set of mountains to bit of flat-land before the next section of climbing cruelty... for the riders. On a transition stage like this you need to take in as much as you can and Ed doesn't disappoint; bikes, busses and team bosses... and a bit of racing. It's all roadside.

    We review the Lazer Z1 +LifeBEAM helmet, a cooperative effort from Lazer and LifeBEAM, two companies that make things for people that go much-much faster than a bicycle… Lazer are at home at 200+ MPH on moto helmets and LifeBEAM’s head gear additions travel around at speeds that start with the word “Mach”, which is fairly quick…

    PEZ Roadside: The final week of the Giro d'Italia is here and Ed Hood hit the ground running on his first day on the road Giro chasing. Stage 16 may have been short, but it wasn't short on excitement as the GC men turned the screw for a wild-fire of action. Take it away Ed:
