    The guys at Global Cycling Network scored a rare on bike interview with Alberto Contador as the team settles into Jerez for the start of the 2014 Vuelta a Espana. Alberto says he's ready to go for it, and his knee is only giving him a little bit of pain at 'full gas'. Check it out...

    We saw the brand new DIVO marque at Sea Otter this Spring, and it impressed enough to warrant ink time in our report. While very few of the bikes actually exist I was lucky enough to ride one for several days while at the Tour de France's middle week in the Vosges and Alps mountains stages.

    Almost a decade of chasing the Grand Tours from the Roadside POV has led me to one undeniable conclusion - everything goes better with sausages. Nothing says good times like a smoking grill and that mouth-watering aroma of sizzling spices, seasoning, fat and mixed meat bits - mmm mmm good.

    The world - and cycling - lost one of the greats with Robin William's passing this week. The comedic giant was also a big cyclist, who often turned up under unexpected circumstances at cycling events to ride along with the crowd. We scored a rare interview with him at the one such event in 2006.

    I knew it was a good Tour when only a couple days in I'd already lost track of the days, and by the end of the week I actually couldn't remember what I'd done just three days earlier. It was my first Tour in 11 years, and this was our final day on the race - destination Briancon, via the Col du Lautaret.

    Devinci Cycles' LEO SL is built for fast gran fondo style riding, has proven itself on the UCI pro circuit, and has been under some long term scrutiny at PEZ HQ - truth is I was having so much fun riding this bike, I was in no hurry to send it back. Here's a closer look.

    I was deep in the Vosges mountains at the 2014 Tour when the winner's bell rang for the set of American Classic's C58 carbon clincher wheels... Congratulations to Ty Brewer of Texas - long time PEZ-fan but first time winner!

    Tour de PEZ St.12: The climb to HC category ski station at Chamrousse is the capper on the Tour de France's first day in the Alps. I saddled up for a closer look on two wheels at the stage 13 finish, and find out who's already set up camp.

    Roadside St.11: 'Bus driver' might not be up there on most people's list of exciting jobs, but in the world of pro cycling, it’s something only a few people are qualified to do. PEZ-Pal Danny In ‘t Ven invited us inside for a tour of the Trek Factory Racing team bus.

    Roadside Rest Day: A day at the Tour presents hundreds of options for Roadside adventures, and sometimes it’s tough choosing which path to follow. One story I was determined to get on my trek through the Vosges and Alps, was an interview with one of the Tour’s Podium Girls.

    Roadside. St.10: What a day – 752 photos, 200+km in the car, 6 of 7 tough climbs, 1 major Tour abandon, and a handful of great stories – here’s what it was like at the Tour de France’s stage 10 on Bastille Day in the Vosges mountains.

    Roadside St.9: It’s 3:40PM, the press room in Mulhouse is filling up, and the break has 6 minutes and 71kms to go – and I'm feeling my legs after riding the Cat. 1 Le Markstein and cat 3 Grand Ballon passes today.

    Roadside St.8: As an opener for the next three days in the Vosges mountains, I saddled up for a ride over stage 8’s final climbs to see how tough these slopes really are. And while the road might set the stage, it’s the fans who make the day…

    This is not a story about how I taught my daughter to ride her bike... far from it actually, and that would be too obvious for this Father's Day epistle. But now that I'm 8 years into this 'dad' gig, I do wonder if anything I'm teaching my kids is getting through...

    As this year’s road racing calendar shifts into, ahem, “high gear”, I’m proud to announce the release of “Breakaway”, my homage to the sport. As an avid, if rank recreational rider, I had a lot of fun writing the song and creating the video.

    With the Giro's last big challenge coming this Saturday on the infamous Zoncolan the PEZ himself looks back on a Top Ride when he took on the Zoncolan during the 2007 Giro, 'Epic is the only word to describe the ride to, up, and back from Monte Zoncolan. It’s the toughest climb I’ve done, and has yet again raised my admiration for the pros who race up stuff like this. Here’s what it’s like for the rest of us.'

    I've been lucky to see nine Giros in the last decade, and even luckier to have photographed some of the most beautiful women in the world to share with PEZ-fans, all in the name of our own brand of cycling journalism. Here's 10 of my favorite Giro d'Italia Daily Distractions...
