    Belgium, or more precisely Flanders, in the third weekend in November is the place to be, a mecca for winter cycling fans.

    The 2016 Tour de France route presentation last week was greeted with (mostly) pleasure from the riders, a good mix of flat, time trial and climbing, with the emphasis on the climbing. Our PEZ Grand Tour expert, Ed Hood, was deep in the bowels of the London velodrome at the time of the presentation, but he's been let out of his cage to give us his Tour'16 First Look.

  • Thursday October 22, 2015


    The winter is here in Europe and if you are not playing cyclo-cross in the muddy fields of Belgium you must be in-door at a '6 Days' somewhere. New on the track calendar for the 2015/16 winter season is the London 6, well the London 1 + 5 Days to be more precise. Ed Hood is back in harness and working hard in the track cabins, but he has had time to fill us in on his London experience so far.

    My second time back in two years - Il Lombardia was better than ever, with great racing, epic weather, and a course around Lake Como worthy of this Monument - my day chasing the race was a fitting end to the 2015 race season.

    Giro Il Lombardia 2015

    Race Report: Vincenzo Nibali cemented his place as the best descender in the sport and he used this to take a famous victory in Lombardy. His Attack with 17 kilometers to go was perfectly timed, but Katusha's Dani Moreno escaped the small band of chasers and had the shark in his sights, but in the end Vincenzo was the man of the day.
