    The Spring sun usually shows its face during the running of Paris-Nice, which has also hosted some epic battles on the journey to the Cote d’Azur. The race was first run in 1933 and has built a history packed with legends, great exploits and tragedy. In this special report from CyclingRevealed, we recall the 1966 edition which probably ranks as the greatest Paris-Nice of them all.

    La Vuelta a Espana starts tomorrow and although not considered as important as the Tour de France or Giro D’Italia, it’s certainly had it’s own challenged and colorful history. From its birth during Europe’s troubled 1930’s, it stayed alive and grew despite the uncertain political climate in Spain through the next several decades, surviving and earning it’s rightful place as a Grand Tour. Here’s a look at the La Vuelta from 1935 to today…

    As the 2006 Giro d’Italia enters the Alps tomorrow it's fitting to remember one of the greatest riders of all time, Gino Bartali. At the age of twenty in 1935, Gino won the first of his seven Giro mountain jerseys. Along with this 70th anniversary it is also remembered that he won three Giro’s (1936, 1937 and 1946) and added to his enduring fame through epic battles with his archrival Fausto Coppi.

    Out of 88 Giro’s, 62 have had an Italian winner whereas the Tour has seen just 36 French wins out of 92 races. Every now and again the Giro organizers have tried to encourage great champions from other countries. Coming as it does just one month before Le Tour this has always been a difficult proposition.

    As Winston Churchill once stated, if you want to predict the future, study history. In nature there are natural rhythms and cycles. Since World War II Belgium has produced a truly great champion every decade and Tom Boonen’s recent successes set good odds that he is the future of Belgian cycling.

    The Ronde van Vlaanderen, Gent-Wevelegm, and Paris-Roubaix make up the opening week of the big Northern Classics. These ancient races have created as many heroes as they've destroyed, and can only truly be understood in person. We offer this humble attempt to explain why...

    Yes Mate – Spanish, Basque and plenty of Liberty ’Yes mate’ is a typical Australian phrase that peppers the spoken language. The Liberty Seguros rider's Australian dialect was a perfect foil to my London cockney slang. But all accents aside, we understood each other perfectly to discuss his life as a pro bike racer...

    Fielding a ProTour team is big business, but most of us have little idea of how many things take place long before a rider even pulls on a jersey. In this revealing and interesting interview, we talked to two men who brought Liberty Seguros into the world of pro cycling, and learn what cycling has done for their business.

    When the Liberty Seguros team blew into Boston at the beginning of October, the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) wind tunnel was one of their stopping off points. We were lucky enough to sit in, and see there was a lot more to thier testing than hot air.

    It is always sad to see the passing of people before their time. When those people are younger than me and have a famous athletic career behind them, I find it even more disturbing. At 53, Gerrie Kneteman, a dominant name in the long list of outstanding Dutch professional cyclists, was out cycling with some friends when he suddenly succumbed to a heart attack earlier this week.

    Comparing the first five-time Tour de France winner Jacques Anquetil to the latest five-time Tour winner Lance Armstrong, we examine the similarities, differences and principal adversaries to project the outcome between Armstrong and Ullrich at this year’s Tour. (Hey - it beats the Magic 8-Ball!)

    We first became acquainted with Graham Jones’ World Championships exploits when he recounted his unexpected rise to glory as part of the “UK team” that traveled Europe supporting 1967 road champ Graham Webb. Now, 36 years later, Graham Jones had yet another memorable encounter with the Worlds in Hamilton. Grab a coffee and come along for the ride…

    The click of a mouse brought to life the newly redesigned website for the CCB International Cycling Club (okay, maybe it was several thousand clicks). And we're proud to announce that CCB International chose PezCycling News as the exclusive news source for their website and club members! One of the most prominent clubs on the east coast, they also boast an illustrious alumni including Tyler Hamilton…

    The time: 1967. A bunch of unlikely British bike racers trying to make it big in Belgium became a de facto “UK Team” to support the World Champ Graham Webb on a post-race tour of Europe – complete with rags, riches, shady promoters and all points in between. And it's all true...
