    The 2015/16 '6 Days' season has come to an end in Copenhagen and our man on the winter boards, Ed Hood, was working hard for his boys in the velodrome center. We pick up the story of the final three days of track action before the 6 Day circus packs its bags away for the summer.

    Roadside PEZ: The news of the return of the Volta a Valenciana was met with as much pleasure and excitement by bike fans of the area, as when the National tour announced it would base most of the final week of the 2016 race on the roads of Valencia. Our local PEZman, Alastair Hamilton, had to see a couple of stages in his backyard.

    Ever heard of ‘moining’? It’s a word from my part of the world that combines the verbs ‘to moither’ and ‘to oin’. Moithering means to babble on in a confused manner whereas moining is when someone is complaining. I bring this to your attention because there’s been a whole lot of moining going on these past couple of weeks.

    Ed Hood has moved on from Berlin to Copenhagen for the next and last '6 Day' of the 2015/16 season. By the sound of things the hard work was the drive from one velodrome to the other, but the 'circus' is all set up and the boards are vibration under the rider's wheels to the bongos, dernys, big motors and the music.

    Book Review: This kind of bicycle collection is different from other transportation museums and its personal quirkiness is deeply attractive because the history of the bicycle itself is nothing if not quirky. And the machines that are so beautifully featured in “Bicycling Through Time: The Farren Collection” must rank amongst the most illustrative specimens of that history.

    PEZ joined Team Rally for an informal media day and ride, and found the UCI America's Tour #1 team's blend of World Tour guidance and young rider enthusiasm is riding to win at Americas top races in 2016.

    Ed Hood brings the Berlin '6 Day' to its climax with the big chase finale, but there were more tales to tell before the camper-van could be packed for the drive and ferry trip to Copenhagen for the next and last '6 Day' of the 2015/16 winter season.

    The victorious ride of Wout Van Aert, and all the other medal winners, at the World cyclocross championships in Zolder at the weekend were overshadowed by the finding of a motor in one of the bikes, and so there can only be one HOT subject for the 'Lee Lowdown'. Femke Van der Driessche's name will go down in the history books for all the wrong reasons.

    Book Review: All new inventions are a product of evolution, with many missteps and dead-ends before reaching acceptable levels of practicality, affordability and aesthetics. Nowhere is this more obvious that in “Bicycle Design,” a remarkable cabinet of curiosities from the MIT Press.

    Young gun Caleb Ewan has been showing that his sprinting promise is the real thing as he whopped the peloton in the People's Choice crit and stage 1 of the WorldTour race; the Santos Tour Down Under. Lee turns his eye on the rocket from Sydney for a sprint Lowdown down under.

    Omloop Het Nieuwsblad  2015

    Lee's Lowdown looks at the draw of the Classics and who better to express an opinion, but Tom Boonen, the Classic King of Belgium when it comes to those battles of the Northern Hell. The Tour de France might be the boss of all races, but Lee makes a case for why the Classics are better races. The Season cometh.

    Etixx - Quick-Step, the most 'winningest' team in the pro peloton for 2015 was in Spain for their January training camp and PEZ-man, Alastair Hamilton, received his invitation for another fun day. Chasing WorldTour riders for photos and interviews is always enjoyable, throw in a top class lunch and Al will be there.

    It is undoubtedly one of the great joys of cycling to admire the passing landscape, whether discovering unknown byways, observing the Tour de France on television or noting the change of season on your commute. A recent scholarly book from the MIT Press is the result of a great deal of digging in the archives to produce a picture of a cyclists' world far different from ours yet we face many of the same issues today.

    The end of the year in here and so it's awards time. The World of Lowdown is proud to announce the 'Lee's Alternative Awards for 2015' as always judged by the head of Lowdown - Lee Rodgers. As you might imagine they are not all for good works, but they are all apt. So we roll out the virtual red carpet for our recipients (good and bad).

    Like people everywhere, I always feel a sense of renewed optimism as the calendar turns over to a new year. 2016 will be our 14th year as PezCyclingNews.com, and it's time for our collective wisdom, ramblings, and cocktail making as we mark the passage of another great year and look forward to what's ahead. - Pez

    At this time of year there's always a discussion in the 'virtual' PEZ office about the past season and which rider or race was the best of the year. Finding consensus was impossible, but when PEZ said "make up your own category"... things got interesting.

    Roadside PEZ: It's December and it's Denia in Spain so it must be the BMC team's media day. Our man on the Spanish coast, Alastair Hamilton, was as usual ready for a morning drive in a team car, an afternoon interviewing some of the World's top riders and of course a very, very nice lunch prepared by the BMC chefs.

    Are you slightly baffled by what is going on between the UCI and the Amaury Sports Organization, owners of the Tour de France and a whopping 40% of the races that currently make up the WorldTour? You needn't be as Lee Rodgers explains the top level machinations.
