INTERVIEW: If the name Calvin Watson doesn’t mean much to you now, it soon will – he’ll be part of pro cycling's new Trek Factory Racing team lining at the Tour Down Under. The 20 year-old Australian joins Fabian Cancellara and the Schleck boys in one of the highest profile teams on the planet.
INTERVIEW: With four top 10 finishes in the Tour de France, Haimar Zubeldia is one of the most experienced men in cycling's Pro Peloton. Not as old as his teammate Jens Voigt or former teammate Chris Horner, Haimar has still seen many changes in his Pro career and we recently caught up with him in Spain to chat about modern racing, radios, Basque independence and more as he heads into his 17th season as a pro.
After weeks of speculation, Trek Bicycle is unveiling a new line of standard-setting carbon fiber cyclocross bikes with the announcement of the all-new Boone.
INTERVIEW: Spartacus, Champion, Hero... whatever you call him, Fabian Cancellara is a feared man on the cobbles, in a time trial or towing a bunch back up to an escape. PEZ caught up with the big man from Switzerland at Trek’s first training camp in Spain for a revealing interview.
Veteran rider Haimar Zubeldia will be heading the American formation on the roads of the Tour de San Luis. The Spanish climber was born in 1977. He has participated in the Tour de France ten times, coming in fifth in both 2003 and 2007, while in 2012 he placed sixth.
I first saw a Trek Domane at the 2012 Tour of Flanders Sportif ride. Somewhere into the second half of my 6 h 30 min day on the 140km circuit, we hooked up with a Swedish journo riding one of the very first production models. The bike looked really different, and something that I was eager to try out for myself. Fast forward to summer 2013 and I've now logged some miles on this machine and can confirm it's 'different' staus - but in a good way!
June 27, 2013 - No racing to report on, but who cares, we have the BIG ONE starting on Saturday in Corsica. Tour de France time again and it’s like that’s the only thing happening in the World of cycling. Not quite, but we do have all the Tour stuff and anything else that has happened since the week-end here in EuroTrash Thursday. Tour, Tour and Tour coffee time!
Trek Bicycle has reached an agreement with Leopard SA to obtain its WorldTour racing license to create a new team debuting in 2014. A named sponsor since the team's inception in 2010, beginning next year Trek will assume ownership of the team.
I’m thinking of renting an apartment in the sea-side town of Calpe, as I seem to be down here for team training camps more and more often each year. Quick-Step, Astana, and Katusha have all been here recently and now RadioShack are here to fight over the hard roads of the area. Press day didn’t have many journos (none), but there was a TV crew and a few photographers...and me. But no Lance!
Trek has redesigned and relaunched their inhouse Project One build-to-order program, allowing customers to individually spec and color one-off Madones online, and take delivery just days later. When they asked if I wanted to be the first through the new program… well I never say no to a client…
It’s been years in the making, and enjoyed a long life of race wins and dealer sales, but one of America’s biggest brands stepped back and did a full rethink on their most successful bike. PEZ gets personal with one of the most anticipated bikes for 2008 - the all new TREK Madone 6.9.
