    Race Report: On a horrendously hard stage, it was a Spaniard who took the win but the big news was that his team leader had made the move of the race and would take the overall. Mikel Landa finished with a well-earned victory; Fabio Aru wrestled the Red Jersey from Dumoulin while Chris Froome suffered horribly having crashed.

    The 2015 Vuelta a España has thrown up some surprises and projected more than a few 'young guns' into the limelight and onto the winners podium. The Spanish Grand Tour has also lost riders who were expected to animate the action. Ed Hood takes a look back at the first ten days and the road to Madrid.

    Race Report: On a day that was expected to go to the sprinters, it all came down to a messy, scrappy finish with a young rider from the best young team of the year taking his first professional win. Kristian Sbaragli of MTN-Qhubeka outfoxed everyone and gave the African squad yet another famous win.

    Roadside: After his stage 8 finish in Murcia we sent Al Hamilton to cover the full stage from Torrevieja to the climb of the Cumbre del Sol, the climb he previewed earlier this week. The start was busy, but the final climb of the Alto de Puig Llorença was just crazy. It was a tough day, but a good one.

  • Sunday August 30, 2015


    Race Preview: The Vuelta a España is passing through Valencia, so we had to send our PEZ man in Spain, Al Hamilton, on his bike to reconnoiter the finalé of stage 9 and the summit finish on the ultra steep Alto de Puig Llorença. It is believed he cheated on most of the parcour, but there is photographic evidence that he rode to the finish line.

  • Saturday August 29, 2015


    Roadside: Stage 8 of the Vuelta finished in the town of Murcia, not too far from where PEZman; Al Hamilton lives. So we had to prize him from his laptop and send him ‘Roadside’ for some fresh air and let him see a bike race in the flesh for a change.

    Race Report: Orica-GreenEDGE did it again with one of its ‘Young Guns’ and this time is was Esteban Chaves who kicked his way to another stage win and to recapture the overall lead from Tom Dumoulin in 3rd place. Another perfect opportunity for an Orica man to swoop to victory as the Vuelta throws up yet more excitement.

    Race Report: Stage 5 was billed as a power sprinters stage finish and so it proved as Sagan and Degenkolb tussled for the win. What they didn’t see was the diminutive Caleb Ewan shoot past to demonstrate his future capabilities. Stage for Orica, but red jersey for Giant-Alpecin as Tom Dumoulin slipped into the lead by 1 second.

    Race Report: The Green Bullet himself, Alejandro Valverde, was the man in the right place at the right time to win today's haul into Vejer de la Frontera. As he so often seems to be, the Spanish veteran was just where he needed to be in the final meters of a steep finish to burst past Ireland's Nicolas Roche for the victory.

    Race Report: On a day that saw continuing fall-out from yesterday’s crash and subsequent expulsions it was a refreshing change to get back to the usual early break and sprinters’ finish. The day belonged to the man who has tried and tried again to get a Grand Tour stage win and today he judged it to perfection: Aúpa Peter!

    Race Report: The stage was decided on the hard and short finishing climb where Nario Quintana attacked first. He didn't have the timing though and as he wilted, Esteban Chaves came through for the biggest win of his career, the red jersey and all the other jerseys too. Nibali out of la Vuelta.

  • Saturday August 22, 2015


    Race Report: It wasn't a classic but BMC were one of the few teams who went flat out in the 2015 Vuelta's stage 1 team time trial to take the victory and the first leader's jersey on a neutralized stage that means nothing to the overall.

  • Thursday August 6, 2015


    The Larry Miller Tour of Utah has quickly climbed onto the podium with the best stage races in America, offering tough terrain at very high altitude, a growing list of international teams, and a chance for young riders to show their stuff in the big leagues.   Daniel Eaton of Team Axeon filed these notes after stage three ended in Bountiful, UT.

    The post-Tour hangover can be a rough one. The cold dark shivering night only really ends with the bacon sandwich of the Vuelta. Luckily we had the brief Bloody Mary of salvation last weekend in the form of the San Sebastian Classic and the London-Surrey Classic.
