    Toolbox: This year’s Tour de France will record a DNF next to major players such as Cavendish, Froome, and Contador.

    With the likes of Carlos Betancur, Nairo Quintana and Rigoberto Uran, Colombia has seen a real resurgence in the pro peloton in the last few years. PEZ's Nate King went to Medellin, Colombia to get some first hand experience of where these guys train - and no surprises - it's far from flat!

    Tubeless wheels for road bikes have been one of the most popular Pez Tech topics ever. While most of us run good ol' clinchers - better traction, cornering, handling, and lower weight all await in the promised land that tubeless can offer. We caught up with American Classic wheels founder Bill Shook who first designed road tubeless wheels back when everyone thought it was a crazy idea for more.

    Roadside St. 21: The final day had arrived, the 2014 edition of the Giro was coming to an end. Although we only covered the last six 6 days, we have come away as complete fans. It is such a different event to either the Tour de France or the Tour Down Under. It’s Italian-ness is what sets it apart as unique.

    Roadside Report: The Monte Zoncolan was first used in the Giro in 2003 but it's quickly become one of the true legendary climbs in professional cycling. Today our man in Italy Steve took on the sights, the sounds, the spectators and the super steep slopes of the Zoncolan just before the race came through to get a feel for this beast of a climb. Heaven or hell?

    Roadside Report: Today it wasn't Julian Arredondo first over the finish line but PEZ's own Steve Prokop who took off early on his bike to ride the last climb and take in the atmosphere of the beautiful Rifugio Panarotta. He then descended to the cobbled streets off Levico-Terme and its steep gradients to watch the pros come through where they made it look all too easy. A perfect day roadside at the Giro.

    Roadside Stage 17: After suffering through the snow and freezing temperatures yesterday, Wednesday's day to Vittorio Veneto dawned with beautiful weather and the promise of a perfect day race chasing. As our man Steve quickly found out though - race chasing doesn't always go as planned but it is always an adventure!

    Giro'14 Stage 16: This morning at 8:30am, PEZ-Man Steve Prokop rolled out of the warmth of Hotel Funivia to finally live his lifelong dream of riding the famed Stelvio. A light rain was falling, the temp was -1.5C degrees at the top, and there were only 18km to climb to the 2760m summit - how hard could that be?

    INSIGHT Giro St.16: Cold weather does a lot more than cool you off - especially on a 5 hour bike ride over three high mountains. Managing core body heat, energy levels, and actually racing, become a fine and difficult balancing act, as CTS Coach Jim Rutberg explains.

    Andy Hampsten rode into cycling legend almost 26 years ago, when a blizzard engulfed the Passo Gavia, and the Giro directors refused to cancel the stage.
