    As an incredible domestique for high profile teams like Sky and HTC-High Road, it’s easy to forget that Danny Pate used to win bike races. But he's back on US soil with Rally Cycling for 2016, and looking to make a mark as team leader, and mentor.

    Today's Readers' Rig is a custom steel effort with a difference being designed after a Shimano promotional poster from the '80's. With the frame copied perfectly from the poster the owner himself then hit the spraybooth to paint his creation with the result being such a cool bike that Shimano themselves bought it and now have it displayed in their bike museum in Japan!

    Roadside PEZ: The news of the return of the Volta a Valenciana was met with as much pleasure and excitement by bike fans of the area, as when the National tour announced it would base most of the final week of the 2016 race on the roads of Valencia. Our local PEZman, Alastair Hamilton, had to see a couple of stages in his backyard.

    Ever heard of ‘moining’? It’s a word from my part of the world that combines the verbs ‘to moither’ and ‘to oin’. Moithering means to babble on in a confused manner whereas moining is when someone is complaining. I bring this to your attention because there’s been a whole lot of moining going on these past couple of weeks.

    Daniel Holloway is hard at it on the boards of Copenhagen at the moment. Our man at the velodromes of Europe, Ed Hood, caught up with 'Hollywood' in Berlin during the German '6 Day' last week. Life isn't all track though as Ed gets the lowdown on Daniel's road season for 2016.

    Santos Tour Down Under 2016 stage 5

    If we have been diligent in our offseason training, we have likely done some nice foundational work to build up our base fitness and functional threshold. But now it’s February and those gains might be stagnating. How do we build on this base fitness and also meet the needs of our riding goals?

    Ed Hood has moved on from Berlin to Copenhagen for the next and last '6 Day' of the 2015/16 season. By the sound of things the hard work was the drive from one velodrome to the other, but the 'circus' is all set up and the boards are vibration under the rider's wheels to the bongos, dernys, big motors and the music.

    08 Feb, 2016 - The sad news is that doping has not gone from the sport of cycling with four cases in the news. On a brighter note we have all the results, reports, rider quotes and video from the Dubai, Valencia, Qatar, Bessèges and Hoogstraten. Plus rider and team news and Peter Sagan takes a look at the course for the Rio Olympics.

    Book Review: This kind of bicycle collection is different from other transportation museums and its personal quirkiness is deeply attractive because the history of the bicycle itself is nothing if not quirky. And the machines that are so beautifully featured in “Bicycling Through Time: The Farren Collection” must rank amongst the most illustrative specimens of that history.

    PEZ joined Team Rally for an informal media day and ride, and found the UCI America's Tour #1 team's blend of World Tour guidance and young rider enthusiasm is riding to win at Americas top races in 2016.

    Ed Hood brings the Berlin '6 Day' to its climax with the big chase finale, but there were more tales to tell before the camper-van could be packed for the drive and ferry trip to Copenhagen for the next and last '6 Day' of the 2015/16 winter season.

    Name a frame builder with employees that have been with them for 40+ years… That list is even smaller when you add that the company is in the USA and is not producing frames in Asia. Lynskey Performance is uncommon.

    The victorious ride of Wout Van Aert, and all the other medal winners, at the World cyclocross championships in Zolder at the weekend were overshadowed by the finding of a motor in one of the bikes, and so there can only be one HOT subject for the 'Lee Lowdown'. Femke Van der Driessche's name will go down in the history books for all the wrong reasons.
