    vuelta14podium650

    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?

  • Monday July 14, 2014

    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.

    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.

    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.

    lowdown_suisse650

    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.

    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.

    dauphine14st8_peloton650

    Race Analysis: With more action than most GrandTours squeeze into 3 weeks this year's Dauphiné was an absolute cracker. Lee Rodgers looks back at the big events of Froome imploding, the resurgence of Alberto Contador and the simply superb performance of Andrew Talansky. What a race!

    dauphine14st1_froome650

    Race Analysis: Light shows, beautiful scenery and great weather can't hide the fact that Chris Froome is simply flying in France and after three stages in the Dauphiné he appears already in control. A time trial, a summit finish and a sprinters' stage - the Dauphiné really is a perfect Tour de France condensed down into a small package. Lee Rodgers analyzes the action so far...

    stelvio_uran_descent650

    Race Analysis: With the Giro done and dusted Lee Rodgers takes a look back at the three weeks of racing and despite the great racing on show the debacle of the 'neutralized' descent of the Stelvio still leaves him with a bitter taste.

    giro14st15-aruattack650

    Anaylsis: The 2014 Giro d’Italia’s Alpine weekend showed off the best racing so far, the battles to Oropa & Montecampione were epic. Rigoberto Uran repelled the attackers, but with the hardest mountains still ahead, has the race been decided? Lee Rodgers offers up his take...

    lowdown_rogers650

    Pro Analysis: Let’s cut to the chase. Tinkoff-Saxo’s Michael Rogers is a divisive figure and many would have watched the finale of yesterday’s Stage 11 of the 2014 Giro d’Italia in a slightly perplexed state, unsure whether or not to cheer on the Australian’s undoubtedly impressive solo break that culminated in a handsome victory.

    giro14st06-finalgroup650

    Analysis St.6: 'The stage has been so boring,' said Mr. Sean Kelly with 35km to go of Stage 6 of the 2014 Giro d’Italia. And then all hell broke loose just before the start of the 10km climb, as yet again serious crashes wreaked havoc on the road to the summit of Montecassino.

    martin_face650

    Race Analysis: With the Ardennes Classics over it's time for Lee Rodgers to analyze the action - tragic and not from Sunday's big Liege-Bastogne-Liege. As the race drew to a close the luck of the Irish seemed to skip countries as it was the Aussie Gerrans who shined as Ireland's Dan Martin crashed at the final turn.

    Pro Analysis: It's time for some humble pie for our commentator Lee as a resurgent Philippe Gilbert bounced back to his best on the Cauberg yesterday to take his third Amstel Gold victory. Lee Rodgers analyzes all the action from the Netherland's only Classic.

    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’.

    One of the best parts of travel is eating, and drinking, the different and delicious tastes from another part of the world. Pez's Lee Rodgers just had the best meal of his life in a Belgium, but it should be no surprise as exquisite dining is also part of Velo Classic Tours' raison d'etre. Prepare to drool...
