    Hard day, easy day, repeat. Most athletes are familiar with the core tenant of periodized training. The concept is often lost when it comes time to apply it to the bigger training picture. The need for a recovery phase following the 'hard ' part of the season is often over looked, undervalued and misunderstood.

    New head gear from Bell, and Lazer. Smart Helmets from Lumos, Sena and Babaali. And sound from Domio. 2016 seems to be the year that smaller and more agile helmet manufacturers all decided it was time to bring cycling head gear into this century…

    There are ways of closing the book on your career, but one of the best must be to set a new Hour Record, and that is what Tom Zirbel did. The fast-man from Iowa put a kilometer and a half onto the previous US Hour Record to post a stunning 53.037 kilometers on the velodrome in Mexico and then hung up his race wheels. Ed Hood gives the last word to Tom.

    Retro PEZ Talk: It’s hard to believe that it’s 40 years since UK bike fans read the news that ‘wunderkind’ Dave Lloyd wasn’t going to achieve his dream of riding the Tour de France, in fact, his professional career was over due to a congenital heart complaint. Ed Hood had a chat with Dave to hear all about life then and now.

    Our PEZ-man in Spain has been promising to tell us all about his 'Writer's Rig' for about twelve years and just when he is thinking of replacing his present Campagnolo equipped Time Edge, he has put finger to lap-top to give us the run down on his present steed. Let's hope it's not another twelve years before we hear about his next bike.

    Lowdown: You must have had your head buried deep in the sand to have missed the hacking of the WADA computer and the subsequent information releases. Bradley Wiggins seems to be the one who has been singled out for special inspection. Lee Rodgers gives us his usual Lowdown to explain how Wiggins has brought most of the controversy down on his own head.

    When I was asked by PEZ to write a review of the new Velocite Syn I was not particularly receptive to the idea, but not because I don’t like the bike. Because I do like it, in fact I very much like the bike, but the problem that I saw was how to write a review about a bike made by a company that sponsors you to ride their bikes?

    TOP RIDE: I'm still basking in the afterglow of the 2016 RBC Gran Fondo Whistler - a big goal accomplished in better form than I'd expected. And after weeks of prep, and all the logistics of coordinating the family for the weekend, and over 5 hours on my bike, it all went by a little too fast.
