    After several years of telling PEZ-Fans about Thomson Bike Tours’ trips chasing the big rides and races in Europe, it was time to experience one for myself. My arrival to cover the final week of the 2011 Giro coincided perfectly with their Giro KOM trip, and its promise of several days of climbing some big climbs.

    OK, you can have me pontificating about the 2011 Giro or we can talk to Team Sky’s Tuscan, Dario Cioni – who would you like? Thought so!

    With the second rest day in the books following three incredibly hard days in the mountains leading up to that, the 2011 Giro hits the home stretch, and it gets...easier? Indeed, if easier is a possible description of two time trials and two mountaintop finishes in six days!

    If you thought the first nine stages of next year's Giro were good, check out this next batch. The northward progression from the stint on Sicily climaxes with a three-day mountain bash in far northern Italy, taking in a bit of Austria, and a slew of uphill meters...then we arrive to the second rest day.

    It never fails to get me going again after the end of season burnout – the unveiling of the Giro d’Italia route for next year. In the past, the Tour de France and Giro presentations were nicely spread out so we could savour and digest each one in good time. Now with both presentations coming only a week apart, there’s barely enough time to consider one before moving on to the next.

    With the Corsa Rosa set to start on Saturday, it's time for a closer look at the route that could be the most difficult Grand Tour in recent years. Today we cover stages 1-9, which carry the race from the start in Torino to the southernmost point of this year’s race on Mount Etna in Sicily. We’ll follow with a look at the run up the Adriatic coast and into the Dolomites, and then tackle the final week and its vast array of mountain peaks and summit finishes.

    PEZ sits down with an industry insider who wishes to remain anonymous that offers some unexpected insight, contentious opinions and certain provocations on visual design in cycling.

    Race report: It’s a beast today. There’s the old saying that what goes up must come down again. In the Giro, it might do, but it also goes back up again. And again. And again. And again. Five big climbs to strain the muscle fibers this afternoon. It’s going to be a long, painful ride ...

    Race Report: Relative unknown Bert De Clercq played his cards right on the uphill finish into Montevergine di Mercogliano, timing his solo move to perfection with just under 10km to go and holding off the roaring chase of the GC contenders behind.

  • Thursday May 12, 2011

    Race Report: Movistar's Francisco Ventoso continued an excellent season with the win this afternoon following a lumpy stage and a tough gradual climb to the finish in Fiuggi Terme - the sprint, like most everything in this year's Giro, was one to be watched, then watched again, and again. Not for the typical reasons either, mind you. Read on.

  • Wednesday May 11, 2011

    Race Report: Resurgent Dutchman, Pieter Weening, took a thrilling solo victory this afternoon in Orvieto after another suspenseful trip along Tuscany's Strade Bianche. The win catapulted the 30 year old Rabobank rider into the Maglia Rosa.

    Thomas Mann said, “A man's dying is more the survivors' affair than his own.” And those words couldn’t ring more true on the day after Wouter Weylandt passed away from injuries sustained in a crash on a descent in yesterday’s Stage 3 at the Giro d’Italia. There were many a heavy heart yesterday upon hearing the news, and much discussion as to whether or not to carry on.

    Race Report: After twenty stages and countless meters of vertical ascension, the final day concluded with a flat time trial in Milano. The overall win was never in doubt, but there were some intriguing mini-races within the final day. Read on!

  • Saturday May 28, 2011

    Race Report: One last day in the mountains, one last monster climb, one last mountaintop finish, and then it's into Milano for the final time trial and the finale to a race that lived up to the hype - the hardest Grand Tour in memory. Let's see how it went down on the dirt of the Finestre and the finale to Sestriere…

  • Friday May 27, 2011

    Race Report: A fairly short day at 209 km with only two rated climbs, the Cat 1 Mottarone and the finishing Cat 3 15k long climb of the Macugnaga, faced the riders today as the peloton was close enough to smell Milan in the 2011 Giro. With tomorrow’s climbing stage up to Sestriere looming, one had to wonder if it would be the favorites throwing punches or saving it for tomorrow.

  • Thursday May 26, 2011

    Race Report: He’s Italian, tall, dark, handsome, smiles a lot, looks cool on a bike; just a pity about the palmares – but Liquigas’s Eros Capecchi went a long way to rectifying that short coming with a classy win in today’s 151 kilometres Giro d’Italia stage 18 from Morbegno to San Pellegrino Terme.

  • Wednesday May 25, 2011

    Race Report: It seemed like it was going to be a simple, easy, quiet stage, but then the final 150 meters happened, and Italian Champion Giovanni Visconti made sure we'd be talking about this one for at least the evening. Read on!

    Race Report: Contador iced the 2011 Giro by stuffing another half a minute into his rivals in the short but steep time trial from Belluno to Nevegal. The other top riders threw everything they could at the Spaniard, but all their efforts were in vain as Contador crushed the course.
