    Dauphine Stage 6: You can teach a rider how to train, when and where to go hard, when to pull back, provide nutritional advice, the best equipment, time in the wind tunnel to perfect position and pedaling efficiency. But there is one element that cannot be taught – how to win.

    Roadside Report: Joking with a former Paris-Roubaix winner, chatting with current stars of the sport and mixing in the VIP area with podium girls and other lucky fans - Lee Rodgers certainly had a great day out at Wednesday's Scheldeprijs. For the race end Lee was at the finishline under sunny skies sipping a cool drink and munching on free food. Could life as a bike fan get any better than this?

    Roadside Report: Amongst the thousands of crazies roadside in the dust at Paris-Roubaix on Sunday was our own Lee Rodgers who was chasing the race with Velo Classic Tours. Seeing the Hell of the North live is a once in a lifetime experience and just like Lee's ride across these hellish roads a couple days prior, this day was nothing short of ‘epic’.

    tdf14st21-nibs650

    Lee Rodgers casts his eye over the 2014 Tour de France's stars & action, the good, the bad and the ugly. It turned out to be a very different Tour from the one predicted three weeks ago – was it an exciting Tour?

    tdf14st10-suffer650

    Race Analysis: After the trilogy of Vosges stages there's a lot to analyze as Lee Rodgers looks back at the action so far - the attacks, the performances and of course the crashes. Froome's abandon, Contador's out and it's Nibali in control - this is certainly not the Tour de France that was predicted.

    tdf13st7-cannon650

    Race Analysis St.3: Traditional sprints, late breaks and the world's longest leadout. It's all analyzed here in the latest edition of Lee Rodger's Tour Lowdown series as he looks back at some of the events from the first week of racing at the 2013 Tour de France.

    tdf13st11-degent650

    Race Analysis: Nothing hurts quite like an ITT. It’s a simple equation: man plus bike plus pain equals how fast you go. No hiding places. The race of truth. After the Tour's first ITT there was only one winner and his name wasn't Tony Martin.

  • Saturday June 29, 2013

    tdf13st01-kittel650

    Race Analysis: Lee Rodgers takes a closer look at the action, the nerves, the crashes and the triumphs from the 1st stage of the 100th Tour de France.

    tdf13st09-andy650

    Race Analysis: After 9 stages that have had many in the field on their knees already, today's rest day is even more welcome than usual. The rest day gives the chance to those struggling to try and recover just a little before having to do it all again and it also gives the chance to our own Lee Rodgers to sit back and analyze the Tour so far.

  • Thursday July 18, 2013

    tdf13st18-crowd

    Race Analysis St.18: Twice up the mythical Alpe d'huez, attacks from afar, changes in the GC, the first French win of the Tour and a hunger flat for the yellow jersey. There's a lot for Lee to analyze after today's historical Alpe d'Huez stage.

  • Monday July 22, 2013

    tdf13-quintana650

    Race Analysis: With the Tour done and dusted and the 169 souls that managed to finish the race slowly getting over their end of Tour hangovers it's time for Lee to look at the revelations from the race and what we can expect to see in future Tours.

  • Monday July 15, 2013

    tdf13st15-victory650

    Race Analysis: The second rest day is the perfect time to review what we've seen so far at Le Tour. Lee Rodgers analyzes some of the performances we've seen, both good and bad and ponders the questions, can anyone beat Froome? And can Froome get any skinnier?

    tdf13st03-mountain650

    Race Analysis: ‘Here I am talking to Peter Sagan. Peter, we have the finish here on the screen for you to watch.’ ‘No. I don’t want to watch it. I’m pissed off.’ Le Tour's first ever Corsican run ends today, capping three day's of excellent racing, unexpected events, and fantastic scenery.

  • Wednesday July 9, 2014

    tdf14st5-nibali650

    Tour Analysis: Stage 5 was a crazy day at the office for everyone on the Tour de France; Lee Rogers has just about calmed down enough to give us his insight on the chaos. Froome gone, Contador struggles and Nibali dominates.

  • Monday July 7, 2014

    tdf14st03-start650

    Tour Analysis: With the Tour headed across the Channel for its proper start on French soil, Lee Rodgers casts an eye over the opening three days of an awesome Tour start that's even caused reaction from the inimitable Bernard Hinault.

    Race Analysis: The Tour de Suisse finished with a bang yesterday as the GC got turned inside out on the very last stage. Attacking riding, a brave GC defense and some simply spectacular scenery - the 2014 Tour de Suisse sure put on a good show. Lee Rodgers takes a look back at the action.

  • Thursday June 19, 2014

    suisse14st4_cavendish650

    Race Analysis: After the fireworks of the GC battle at the Dauphiné of last week the Tour de Suisse has so far been dominated by the sprinters. It's been a far from boring affair though as Lee Rodgers explains in his latest look at the action before the expected GC showdown this weekend.
