    Over a lifetime of cycling the roads of our sport, a few stand out: the fun ones, the beautiful ones, and the brutal ones - where you suffer like you never knew possible. Riding your bike up the Mortirolo in Northern Italy is all three...

    Roadside Greatest Hits: I decided to be there. With all those people, on the hills where Marco Pantani was training. At any turn you can hear his breath – that’s what the locals like to say. It was cloudy but didn’t rain, was exiting and exhausting. If you want to know more it’s the right time to discover the Pirate’s roads.

    Roadside St. 7: Maybe I don't have the words, perhaps it needs one of the old time journos, a JB Wadley or a Marcel de Leener - they could express things in the terms required for an epic such as this. But at the same time, whilst the organizers have created a grand spectacle, a saga out of Norse Legend, is it still sport? Does it go beyond that to sadism or freak show?

    The Giro is over – but what’s it like to do ride and finish your first one? We asked that very question to Saxo Bank’s Michael Morkov at his Luxembourg home

    If you want to discover the depths of your own patience, I can suggest no better test than a week in Rome with two young children. I’ve embarked on such a mission (albeit not intentionally) this past week, taking in the sights, shops, and dining that makes this one of the world’s great cities.

    Race Report: Rain...and lots of it! A day of wet weather and deep puddles, but the stage was not short of final action. A slightly up-hill sprint finish and Matthew Goss flew past a sprinting Evans and Vinokourov to take a third stage for the men down under. Three stages and three jersey leaders (yesterday) for Australia! Another shrimp on the barbie, cobber!

    Race Report: Another wet and miserable day, but this time with lots of mud thrown in for good measure. Today the riders looked like they had ridden Paris-Roubaix, you couldn’t tell one rider from the other, but Evans and Vino stood out from the crowd. All the riders today were hero’s...unbelievable!

    Surely it’s a done deal and Ivan Basso can claim he has redeemed himself, returning from his two years on the naughty step to pull on the final overall ‘maglia rosa’ of the 2010 Giro d’Italia? The only major issue to tidy up on this time trial tour of Verona’s finest sights was the third podium place …

    Here we are again, the start of the first Grand Tour of the year; the 93rd Giro d’Italia. In three weeks time it all ends in Verona with a time trial, but today we kick off with stage 1, an 8.4 kilometre test against the clock in Amsterdam and what a stage! A battle royale between Millar, Wiggins, Evans, Vino and…Bookwalter!

    Gilberto Simoni used to be the King of the Zoncolan, but he couldn’t quite make it a hat-trick of wins. The veteran crossed the line applauding the fans, but the clock had been ticking for a few long minutes after the big battle raged. David Arroyo stays in pink, but the big winner was …

    Race Report: Just like yesterday crashes were to make some decisive differences to the result today, cross winds played their part, but putting a hairpin bend in the last 2 K’s split the pack to ribbons. Evans lost out, Wiggins crashed, and Greipel didn’t have the legs. It won’t be popular with some people, but Alexandre Vinokourov took the lead by using his head.

  • Saturday May 29, 2010

    Today could have been a day of monumental overall changes with some of the hardest climbs of this year’s Giro d’Italia. Vino and Sastre were out to shake things up, but in the end most of the action was saved for the last climb of the day and race. Brave Swiss Rider Johann Tschopp soloed to victory as Evans took the bull by the horns behind. The fat lady has sung!

    The Grand Tour organizers are wasting no time this year in getting everyone riled up about 2010. The Tour released their route last week, so you can bet the Giro wasn't going to be far behind: Saturday, actually. PEZ was on hand, as always, to get a look at the stars, their footwear, the festivities, and of course the route for the 2010 Giro!

    A warm up for the first real day in the mountains that the riders will face Sunday, was today’s happy 172km jaunt to Marina di Carrara where Aussie Matthew Lloyd strutted his stuff to come home with a fine, fine win. Check it out.

    A brutal couple of days on tap in the Giro, as today's 1-2 punch of the Trevigno and Mortirolo climbs, followed by the summit finish of the Aprica were sure to put the hurt on the riders and shake up the GC. Michele Scarponi hung on to the lead group to the stage win, while Basso gained enough time for pink.

    After two pieces of mountain madness bread with a filler of rest day gone by, the beaten and weary souls of the 2010 Giro d'Italia were gifted an easy day, well, as easy as you can get for northern Italy.

  • Tuesday May 25, 2010

    Brutal! There's your word for the day. The Giro's Stage 16 TT up the Plan de Corones was only 12.9km, but it packed a BIG punch going all uphill and touching gradients in the 20 percent range, replete with some dirt sections, snow, and massive crowds. Stefano Garzelli saw his chance for victory and powered up the beastly climb for a fine stage win. But the GC took some lumps when all was said and done.

    The Liquigas success is apparently infectious. The cloud of success from three straight stage wins from the boys in California has apparently drifted across the Atlantic and the Mediterranean to settle over the Liquigas squad racing the Giro. A 1-2 in the first foray into the mountains was the result and surely a sign of things to come.

    From the west of Italy to the east, today's 230km jaunt from Avellino - Bitonto was for the most part a rest day for the riders. Flat and straight, it was a simple day. Well, until the last 20 km when the peloton opened up a can of fast, and sprinter Tyler Farrar of Garmin-Transitions got his 2nd victory of this year's Giro.

    Let’s just call this the Sorbet Stage because it cleans the palate between the hard first courses of Zoncolan and Plan de Corones and the other major mountain meals to come, like the Mortirolo. Though it is unlikely that Passo Palade will be a decisive stage, it will most likely confirm who won’t win. Here’s our close inspection of this unsung Tyrolean climb.
