    Stage Preview: Stage 18 from Muggio to Pinerolo features two very tough little climbs right at the end - the Par'Martino, and the San Maurizio. I rode these when the Giro finished here in 2009. The difference this time is they're being taken in reverse, turning what was a tough climb followed a very dangerous descent into an even tougher climb with a still challenging drop through narrow, twisty wooded roads, and a 20% kicker to finish it off.

    PEZ Roadside: Stage 17 and Ed Hood moves on from one set of mountains to bit of flat-land before the next section of climbing cruelty... for the riders. On a transition stage like this you need to take in as much as you can and Ed doesn't disappoint; bikes, busses and team bosses... and a bit of racing. It's all roadside.

    Race Report: It was a day when you could have been forgiven for taking a nap for the better part of the stage, only waking in time for the final 15kms and you wouldn’t really have missed much. In the end; Roger Kluge pulled a surprise win over the sprinters.

    We review the Lazer Z1 +LifeBEAM helmet, a cooperative effort from Lazer and LifeBEAM, two companies that make things for people that go much-much faster than a bicycle… Lazer are at home at 200+ MPH on moto helmets and LifeBEAM’s head gear additions travel around at speeds that start with the word “Mach”, which is fairly quick…

    PEZ Roadside: The final week of the Giro d'Italia is here and Ed Hood hit the ground running on his first day on the road Giro chasing. Stage 16 may have been short, but it wasn't short on excitement as the GC men turned the screw for a wild-fire of action. Take it away Ed:

    Lee Rodgers took the weekend off from his usual Lowdowning on bike races and riders to have a look at the new bike offerings at the Shanghai Bike Show. When Lee visits one of these 'happenings' you can't expect a technical blow-by-blow break-down, but you will get the Lee style Lowdown.
