    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:

    Lee Rodgers took the weekend off from his usual Lowdowning on bike races and riders to have a look at the new bike offerings at the Shanghai Bike Show. When Lee visits one of these 'happenings' you can't expect a technical blow-by-blow break-down, but you will get the Lee style Lowdown.

    The Giro’s decisive Chianti TT this past Sunday placed a heavy emphasis on both massive power AND aerodynamics. The key to both is a healthy and strong lower back and neck. What are some symptoms and management of pain in these areas?

Lee is unsure of the form of Vincenzo Nibali, but is sure that Ilnur Zakarin should not be in the Italian Grand Tour.
