    2011 - Tour de France 18e etappe

    Photo Special: Earlier this month Andy Schleck said that he would race no more. The younger half of the most successful brother combination in modern cycling would not turn a pedal in anger again due to the knee injury he sustained in the Tour de France. We pay tribute to Andy Schleck with a photo special.

    Cauberg Cyclocross - Worldcup  Valkenburg Elite 2014

    This past weekend the Cyclocross World Cup kicked off in Valkenberg with a commanding win by Lars Van der Haar, after a typically audacious start for the young gun. The ability to sprint for the hole shot by LVdH and another young star like Mathieu Van der Poel are impressive and, surely, taxing, but how taxing are they?

    Roadside Reload: Grand Tour veteran Ed Hood was at the 2013 Giro d'Italia covering the action for PEZ and the stage to Vicenza that year has practically the same profile and course as stage 12 for the Giro'15. We retrace Ed's day of fun on the Crosara climb and look forward to next years Italian Tour.

    elite-hydromag-win650

    Go ahead...make my Saturday. Or in this case it was Thursday - when I reached the winner of the Elite Hydro-Mag Trainer - Matt Whetton of Clovis California - another long time PEZ-Fan, and a darn happy one when I told him the news.

    pro-cycling650

    Men's professional cycling: it's all about glamour. Jaguar team cars; on-demand massages; garages full of the latest super-light carbon wonderbikes; worshipful fans; exotic locales with breathtaking scenery; breathtaking podium girls; the big bucks and global recognition. But then again perhaps not as Phil Gaimon details in “Pro Cycling on $10 a Day” .

    giro05st19-01finestre650

    Stage 20 of the 2015 Giro d'Italia serves up the 2148m high Colle della Finestre as its final battle ground. I logged one of my all time Top Rides here in 2005 as Il Falco swooped to a 28 second GC victory from Gilberto Simoni. Here's how the day played out...

    Giro d'Italia 2012 stage 12

    The route of the 2015 Giro d'Italia was announced last week and who better to run his eye over the course than our most experienced Grand Tour reporter; Ed Hood. This year's Italian tour is mostly in the north, but in Ed's own words: 'There’s something for everyone in the 2015 Giro!'

    giro09st11rp-06guardia650

    The 2015 Giro d'Italia starts in Liguria - one of my favorite regions of la bell'Italia. I've spent some quality time here and can attest the area is filled with excellent rides along the coast and into the mountains that define it. This ride from Levanto to Sestri Levante is a classic.

    wiggins-voigt650

    Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock made one of the greatest pairings in TV and movie history, polar opposites who constantly butted heads but also perfectly complemented each other. These two personalities are also embodied in bike racers and can be fairly easily identified. Can you tell which character you are?

    emilia14---650

    Roadside Report: The last race chase of the year was this past weekend in Italy for our race chaser Alessandro at the beautiful semi-classic, Giro dell'Emilia. The iconic arches in Bologna and the difficult finishing circuit with its demanding climb always make for a great race and a very crowd friendly event where this year Davide Rebellin at 43 years old turned back the hands of time to take the victory.

    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.

    Today in Readers' Rigs we have a two for one special with two friends that go way back in cycling. They've shared many experiences on the road including completing the RAAM together in 1992 on Hollands custom steel rigs. Their love of their Hollands continues today with both still riding Hollands bikes - although they're two quite different machines.

    Emilia'14 Ale 08-650
