    verge650

    One look at the modern day pro peloton shows an abundance of skinsuits being used during standard road stages. What was unthinkable just a few years ago is now commonplace as riders look for the latest edge in aerodynamics and comfort. I recently put Verge's mid priced Triumph Carrera road/criterium skinsuit, through a long range test with some surprising results.

    look-795-650

    LOOK have a long history of innovation and their latest bike, the 795 Aerolight which was just launched is surely the most innovative bike yet from the French team. Aero, light, responsive and totally unique with its 11 patents this is a bike that has been designed as 'The best aero road bike ever made'. PEZ was there at the launch in Paris to check it out and then take it for a ride to put those claims to the test.

    What do you get when you combine your love of retro bikes and love of a modern classic car? An Abarth Factory steel roadie! PEZ fan Daniel from California is the proud owner of this 'Abarth Factory' bike which looks nothing like it did when he bought it just under a year ago...

    tdf14st20-martin650

    Race Report: A long time trial full of action saw Tony Martin once again show his class with a superb win but it was the GC battle that had the excitement boiling today with 8 out of the top 10 GC places changing after the time trial was done and dusted. Stage 20 of the 2014 Tour de France was a great day for some and a nightmare for others...

    tdf14st10-nibali650

    Race Report: It was touted as the Queen stage of the Vosges and even the Queen stage of the entire Tour by some and Stage 10 didn't disappoint with the action on show. Once again crashes unfortunately dominated the news with the big loss of Alberto Contador but nothing could overshadow the performance of Vincenzo Nibali who reigned supreme in the Vosges.

    tdf14st8-blel650

    Race Report: Another long attack highlighted the early goings of the Tour's first mountain stage today with the win finally going the way of the break thanks to a superb performance from Blel Kadri. The mountains mightn't have been long today but they sure provided some real fireworks amongst the GC contenders with some big changes in the top 20 by stage's end.

    tdf14st7-sprint650

    Race Report: The second longest stage of the Tour was looking like a typical transition day just until the day long break was caught 25km before the finish and all hell broke loose. The action started happening left right and center with two climbs, crashes, mechanicals, attacks, more crashes and a photo finish winner - what a final!

    tdf14st1-kittel650

    Race Report: Massive crowds, perfect weather and some beautiful scenery - Yorkshire sure put on a great show for the opening stage of the 2014 Tour de France. The riders too put on a show with a classic Jens Voigt attack and a spectacular sprint which turned to tragedy for some but nothing but glory for Marcel Kittel who claimed the stage and with it the yellow jersey.

    george-tansley650

    Rider Interview: Just 20 years old and from the other side of the world, young Aussie George Tansley has been thrown into the deep end in the heartland of racing in Belgium but he hasn't sunk. Far from it in fact, he's come out fighting - and winning with a string of high placings and victories of late we thought it was time to catch up with this man on the rise as he pursues his dream of professional racing.

    beards650

    A quick look around the WorldTour peloton these days shows somewhat of a new trend of late - beards. With the likes of cycling royalty in Sir Bradley Wiggins sporting some growth or classics strongmen Luca Paolini and Simon Geschke sporting full grown beards we thought we'd take a closer look at our hairy friends plus some of the classic beards of days gone by.

    languedoc-village650

    The South of France's Languedoc region is a beautiful place to visit with its spectacular scenery, history, food and wine but it's also one of the best places in the world to ride a bike. Small roads through tiny, historic villages, vineyards, forests and a good collection of medium mountains, make for perfect Top Rides.

    alpe650

    Top Ride: Cycling the climb of Alpe d'Huez is a mythical experience, a grand beast that conjures images of epic battles on its 21 hairpin bends and leg sapping slopes. The 2013 Dauphiné took on the Alpe before heading down the new Col de Sarenne descent and Pez's editor Chris rode the climbs and descent. On the eve of this year's Dauphiné, here's a look back at one of the French Alps' Top Rides!

    argent13-650b

    Pez Tech: As a continued part of our detailed look at tubeless wheels today here's another look at last year's American Classic Argent Tubeless Wheel Review from Chris who was a tubeless newbie before this test but quickly became a convert. So much so that he now rides and races exclusively on tubeless wheels since this review.

    giro14st11-rogersjoy650

    Race Report: The supposed breakaway's day at the Giro turned into a ding dong battle from the go as the stage was raced at extremely fast speeds with the pressure on all day. The win went the way of the returned from his 'non-suspension' Michael Rogers after a perfectly timed and executed solo move.

    giro14st5_ulissi650

    Race Report: The 2014 Giro d'Italia's Stage 5 route in the South of Italy from Taranto to Viggiano promised some changes from the rest of the Giro so far with 2 new things on offer, small mountains and sunshine! Or at least it looked that way at the start...

    giro14st1_greenedge650

    Race Report: The 2014 Giro d'Italia's stage 1 rolled out birthday boy joy, bad luck for the Irish, some typical rain and some GC favorites losing big time. The Team Time Trial was certainly no procession through the streets of Belfast - this was an imortant stage that's already caused some big GC gaps.

    jim650

    A Readers' Rig could be anything from a modern classic to a vintage steely, a lightweight carbon or more - but why not all of the above? Canadian PEZ fan, Jim has 4 bikes that easily qualify as Readers' Rigs so we decided to feature all four - a Trek 5200, a Colnago C50, a 1988 Marinoni Special and a Guru Photon.

    LookKeoBlade650

    Product Review: A lighter, stronger pedal is what LOOK claimed to have created with the Look Keo Blade 2 - the same pedal used by almost half the professional peloton this year. I quizzed the designer at Look France on the new features and then took them out for a tough 3 month test.

    This 2014 Paris-Nice, the famous race to the sun saw a change of format with no prologue, no time trial and no mountain finish meaning the final result was not decided until the very last stage and even the very last kilometer. Let's wrap up the action with a look at all the results and best photos from the last 8 days.

    strade12-fog650

    Sectors of gravel road, dust and hills define the Strade Bianche, but it's so much more. The rolling green hills of Tuscany, the ancient towns of Gaiole and Siena, the passion of the tifosi ooze atmosphere and excitement. Ahead of Saturday's race let's take a look at some of our favorite images from years past.
