    Giro d'Italia 2015 stage - 21

    The best or craziest Grand Tour of the year (so far) has finished and just like previous stages; it had a rabbit up its sleeve. Lee Rodgers take a good look at the final week and gives us his usual unique view on the 2015 Giro d'Italia. The Roundup of the lowdown.

    giro15st9-aru-sprint-650

    We have often discussed the value and importance of High Intensity Intervals (HIT) here at Pez. There is a reason, of course, they are a central component of racing success, yet questions remain, so let’s dive into the lactic acid pool once again!

    Giro d'Italia 2015 ST21

    PEZ Roadside St.21: It's the end of the Giro d'Italia road for the riders and for Ed and Martin. The adventurous pair were in amongst everything in Milano, roadside, backstage, at the busses and as near the finish line and podium as they could get. It's the last day of school in Milan.

    giro15-contador-podium-650

    Jun 01, 2015 - Pink is the color for Alberto Contador and EuroTrash Monday. We go all the way to Milan with the Giro d'Italia and catch-up with the Belgian Tour and the Fjords. All the video, reports, results and rider quotes to keep you in the race action.

    giro15st21-contador-trophy-650

    Race Report: The surprises of the 2015 Giro d’Italia continued in the final stage as Iljo Keisse won in Milan from Luke Durbridge in a two-man break. The pink jersey of Alberto Contador crossed the line safely in the bunch to seal his overall victory. Giro done, Tour next.

    giro15st20mw-landa650

    Giro'15 St.20: There's only one place to watch this penultimate stage of the 2015 Giro d'Italia - and that's on the spiralling slopes of the Colle della Finestre. Ed & Martin battled closed roads and the long way 'round, but made it to the top of one of cycling's most epic climbs.

    giro15st20-aruline650

    Race Report: If you're going to have a bad day, you might as well have it when the Giro is all but won. Alberto Contador proved that he has a champion's head as well as heart and brains, hanging tough through a crisis on the Colle delle Finestre. Fabio Aru gave it everything but came up a good two minutes short. The Giro is won!

    giro15st19eh-scrap650

    And to think, this morning started so well... We've been in them all; the hotel from The Shining, leaks, no heating, no hot water, no breakfast, no wi-fi... But last night... "Majestic" by name, majestic by nature, back to a time when hotel staff didn't wear Korn T-shirts and call you; 'mate.'

    giro05st19-01finestre650

    The Giro has saved the best for last as the race tackles the truly epic Colle della Finestre as the final stage for glory for this year's GC battle. Contador has the race sewn up but a lot can happen on a massive climb of 18km that throws in 8km of dirt road and steep pitches. I first rode this climb in 2005, and it's been on my list of Top Rides ever since.

    giro15st19af-astana650

    Stage 19 Race report: After a couple of bad days, when Alberto Contador looked around and saw just how much Fabio Aru was suffering, the young Sardinian romped away in the last few kilometers to win a brutal stage. For Aru the day's spoils, and up a place overall, but Alberto Contador was as comfortable as could be on a lightning-fast ride to Cervinia.

    giro15st18eh-rogers-ulissi-650

    Ed and Martin are into the 'Giro Groove' and have this bike race chasing down to a fine art. They've worked out the best places to see the race, eat pizza & drink beer, plus find the very important coffee and a read of the Gazzetta. Day 3 of their Giro Adventure rolls to Verbania!

    giro15st18-gilbert-win-650

    Race Report: Just when you thought this Giro couldn’t provide another high-octane thrill ride, the first-category Monte Ologno, fuelled a further chaotic stage. We had it all: breakaways, chases, races within races, dropped chains and thrown-down gauntlets. The maglia rosa on the charge. It was perfect.

    May 28, 2015 - The high point of the week had to be the chase back of Contador on the Mortirolo, he turned a deficit into an advantage.

    Giro d'Italia 2015 ST17

    After missing out on the Mortirolo yesterday, Ed and Martin made point of soaking up the atmosphere at the start in Tirano, before shooting off towards Switzerland. But everyone is still talking about Alberto and the Mortirolo and the guys were taking it all in.

    giro15st17-modolo-win-650

    Race Report: Stage 17 could have been a dull day, but it was spiced up by the beautiful views of Lake Lugano and a very exciting last 20 kilometers into Switzerland. Sacha Modolo was given an armchair ride to the line and repaid his team with their fourth stage win.

    Giro d'Italia 2015 ST16

    Ed and Martin jumped off at the deep-end, first day at the Giro 2015 and they went for the hardest day with, arguably, the hardest climb of this years race. The Passo del Mortirolo strikes fear into the heart of many a bike rider. The boys find out why.

    giro15st16-landa-finish-650

    Race Report: Mikel Landa won the tough Mortirolo stage, taking his second stage win in this Giro d’Italia and moving into second overall. But the story of the day was Alberto Contador’s recovery and eventual domination of stage 16. He was over a minute down on Fabio Aru, but turned it round to a near three minute advantage on the Mortirolo. A great day of action.

    hydration-splash-650

    Since the mid-1990s, the public message has been overwhelmingly prevalent and clear – hydration is important and critical to health and performance. Our own Toolbox Editor Dr. Stephen Cheung tested this assumption head-on in a unique way with a study that received a lot of media attention. What did he find?

The productive pair will be on the Mortirolo tomorrow, here is the story so far:
