    Readers' Rigs is a great look at what PEZ fans are riding but what about the PEZ himself - what does he ride? Well between bike tests, product trials and lends from friends it changes constantly but back in 2006 he built up a bike of his own that remains to this day one of his favorite rides.

    Italian team manager Franco Ballerini today announced his line-up for the World's road race on October 13 in Zolder Belgium.

    Enough of this checking out the girls from the other side of the room - it's time to dance! Well... start racing at least... Round 1 of the 2003 World Cup rolls out of Milan this Saturday (9:00 AM sharp - well, give or take, it's Italian time..)...

    CSC-Tiscali’s Jacob Piil scored the biggest win of his career today, edging perennial escape artist Jacky Durand in a two-up sprint after a 252km breakaway from Paris to Tours that started at just 5km in. No one predicted, the cheeky (and usually pointless) move would work today, especially after Richard Virenque used the same tactic (along with Durand) to outwit the peloton last year.

    What say we meet at the cafe by the Duomo about 9:00... grab an espresso? Then we'll head south - towards the sun, ride the flats for a few hours, take in a nice little climb called Turchino... can you smell the salt air yet? See those palm trees? Last one there buys dinner at that little ristorante on via Roma - the pasta is unbelievable... Oh, did I mention your legs will burn leg never before and your heart will be pounding out of your chest - that is if you want to be first up the Poggio...

    Spring is here, in spirit if not in weather - which means it's been raining for most of the past 10 days, as it often does in the Pacific Northwest. At least I'm not looking out at snow drifts and ice - ! There are even a few breaks in the gloom, long enough to sneak out for an hour or two and get the legs circulating - heart pumping - yeah it's not so bad. As long as you dress right!

    You know those days when things are quiet.. too quiet?

Since 2002, the guys at Custom Sublimation have been turning out custom team kit in less time than it takes some races to post results…

    If you’re thinking about going to le Tour this year, here’s one tour that is guaranteed to be a different TDF experience. Cult filmmaker Scott Coady – the man who brought us that irrepressible film “The Tour Baby!”, just announced he’ll be taking a select “team” of guests to the 2005 Tour de France. I had to ask what he’s got planned for the trip...
