    giro14st20-ampitheatre-650

    Saturday is the big day in Italy for cycling fans, the Giro d'Italia launches its self down the start ramp in Sanremo for the first Grand Tour of the 2015 season. Ed Hood takes a close look at the most important stages and riders and talks to Giro virgin Calvin Watson. Giro time baby!

    giro-gavia-hampsten650

    The Giro d’Italia is my favorite GT by some distance. I love the Italianness, the slightly chaotic feel that pervades, the brutal climbs, grueling days and weather that always seems to be quite content to dump a hefty load of misery on the peloton. All satisfying my sadistic undertones.

    matthews-eating-650

    Every cyclist loves to eat, and half of the fun of cycling is in having a built-in excuse to eat in large quantities. What we put into our bodies before and during our rides, however, can have a direct impact on our fatigue resistance. Let’s refresh our memories with a primer on fuel utilization during exercise and the importance of carbohydrates.

    Book Review: For those of us who love the Giro d’Italia, the final day always come too soon and then the Tour comes and pink is replaced by yellow. Thanks to “Maglia Rosa: Triumph and Tragedy at the Giro d’Italia” by British author/Italian resident Herbie Sykes we have an English-language history of the Giro d’Italia.

    veloroos-group650

    Who are The Veloroos? Well they are the first Australian, all female team, to take part in the brutal Race Across America the 3000 mile (4828km) non-stop race from the west to east coast of the U.S.A. With the big race starting on 20th June we thought we'd check in now with the girls to hear about their preparation, hopes and fears as their date with destiny approaches...

    It's been a busy week for Alejandro Valverde, the Astana team and Lee Rodgers; all for different reasons. Now that the dust (or street detritus) has settled on the roads of the Ardennes, Lee looks back on Flèche and Liège to give us his take on the Valverde 'Domination'.

    Giro d'Italia 2012 stage 12

    When 2015 Giro d'Italia route was announced last October our most experienced Grand Tour reporter, Ed Hood, gave us his first look (full preview next Wednesday). This year's Italian tour is mostly in the north, but in Ed's own words: "There’s something for everyone in the 2015 Giro!"

    The heart is a muscle, and can be trained just like any other muscle in your body. Cardiovascular mechanisms and the inability to supply blood and nutrients to the different tissues in the body remain at the “heart” of many of the proposed models of fatigue, so this seems a good place to start our exploration…

    Liege - Bastogne - Liege 2015 (1.UWT)

    Race Report: Ed Hood told us last week, even before Flèche Wallonne, that Alejandro Valverde would win 'La Doyenne' on the steep finish to Ans. It was a battle of cat and mouse between Katusha and the man from Murcia, but 'Balaverde' was top man. Here is how Ed saw the race unfold.

    His stats for Liege read like this: 1979, 20th: 1981, 11th: 1982, 10th: 1984, 1st: 1985, 4th: 1986, 12th: 1987, 20th; 1988, 5th: 1989, 1st – good enough to tell us a little about La Doyenne? Yeah, we thought so too: PEZ talked to Sean Kelly about the oldest, and many would say the hardest of the ‘monuments’.

    eroica-usa15-group650

    PEZ's Nate King has raced professionally around the world but he'd never ridden on classic steel, strapped on some toeclips and got those downtube shifters moving on a machine from the past. Eroica California was the perfect place to do it and it's where Nate rediscovered just how beautiful riding can be.
