    Interview: You have a couple of options on your last day at a Grand Tour. You can sleep late, get to the airport early and do some duty free shopping, or...you can drive 100 miles plus each way, to interview a man who has worn the maglia rosa twice in this race - Ryder Hesjedal.

    Roadside St.4: After yesterday’s recon of Stage 4 of the 2012 Giro reported here yesterday, it was time to get to the Real Thing and return to Verona for the team time trial, where we rode along with Team Astana…

    With over 51 Giro’s under our belts, we’ve logged many thousands of kilometers chasing Italy’s greatest race from one end of the boot to the other, with visits at most points in between. That’s a lot of local knowledge – the kind you just don’t get from the race guide, or anywhere else. Here’s the PEZ-Take on Week 1…

    Most of the year, the PEZ crew is outside on the roadside chasing cycling's best. Every once in awhile, however, we get a day pass, and we get to go inside. Let's take a closer look at the amusing, fantastic spectacle that was the 2013 Giro Presentation.

  • Wednesday May 30, 2012

    Just prior to the Giro's fourth stage TTT, PEZ had the chance to chill at the Astana team bus (if “chill” is the right word for such a hot, sunny day) and talk to some of the men who keep the wheels on the bus, so to speak. They don’t get on the podium and they don’t have fan clubs, but no pro team could function without guys like these...

    After a well deserved giorno della riposa in Limone sul Garda (on the shores of beautiful lago di Garda), the Giro begins its final week and 6 stages that should decide the race. The week offers up 3 mountain days with 2 summit finishes, and three flat days including the individual time trial to close the show in Milano.

    On Monday, we'll present our thoughts on the final, decisive week of the Giro, but heading into that, it seems to make good sense to check out Pez's own recent experiences on the Passo Duran and Forcella Staulanza with Thomson Tours - two of the four climbs that highlight the Dolomiti queen stage in Week #3. Let's take a closer look!

  • Wednesday May 23, 2012

    Stage Preview: Wednesday's Stage 17 was be the first big kick in the gut that signals the Giro's hardest days have arrived. The riding in this part of Italy is legendary, and the racing will be epic - especially with the week's wet weather forecast. I rode Passo Duran and Forcella Staulanza with Thomson Tours - two of the four climbs that highlight the Dolomiti queen stage in Week #3. Here's a closer look...

    Race Report: Today could have been a damp squib with the top riders watching each other’s every move. That is until Thomas De Gendt went on the attack in the style of Eddy Merckx and put all the others to the sword. Excitement by the bucketful and the race just became a little bit more open for the final TT. Canada in Pink tomorrow?

    Race report: ‘Wow’ was the tweet from Garmin-Barracuda’s boss man Jonathan Vaughters after a fascinating, sinew-tearing, nerve-shredding day in the gods ... the Giro returned to its mountain home with a vengeance today with five climbs including the Passo Manghen and two trips up the Alpe de Pampeago. As the riders crawled up, here’s what went down!

  • Thursday May 24, 2012

    Race report: Aaah, sweet relief! It’s nearly all downhill today after that epic haul to Cortina d’Ampezzo just 24 hours ago. Of course, it’s not all plain sailing. There’s one little lumpy climb in the middle. And the sprinters’ teams are desperate to keep it together. And Cav wants the win for the points jersey. And the escape artists want to sweep a few more brush strokes on the stage canvass and will do everything to get away. And the contenders will be vigilant ...

    Race Report: Another mad crazy day in Italy, many had said today would sort out the top five places in this year’s Giro d’Italia, how right they were. The top five crossed the line together (with Pozzovivo), the others? Still finishing a long time later. There was no need to attack today as the mega-hard course sorted out the wheat from the chaff.

    Roadside St. 6: Countryside, green fields, narrow roads and climbs. This is the menu of the day. Yesterday evening me, Jered and Ashley have done the homework: we’ve studied the map, the timetable and we’ve done our plans. They will witness the passage on the gravel road while I will spot in two places: the first climb and one hill at 50 km to go.

    Roadside St.10: 'The Rough Guide' isn't kind to Civitavecchia, they reckon the only reason to visit is if you're catching a ferry - oh well. We've been here before, on the way back from Sardinia in 2007 - we had to forced march from the docks to the car hire office...let's take a closer look at yet another amazing stage - this time, to Assisi!

  • Saturday May 26, 2012

    Roadside St.19: On a stage so fraught with difficulty, I can say with certainty, I've never seen so many smiling faces in the final kilometers. It was a brilliant day of racing, and we were there in the midst of it, amazed at just how great it all can be.

  • Monday May 21, 2012

    Roadside St.15: The digs worried us a little bit, last night. They looked deserted to us, but bit by bit it came together and by breakfast time we were part of the family - and the wi-fi was just fine. Ed and Dave take you inside the barriers of the Giro for one final day before heading home...

  • Friday June 1, 2012

    Roadside: I always thought that we'd be overjoyed to reach that final stage in Milano. It was somewhat disconcerting then when, despite sickness and exhaustion, we found ourselves leaving Milano at the end of another memorable day feeling a bit sad...

  • Thursday May 24, 2012

    Roadside St.18: After yesterday's superlative laden adventure through the Dolomiti, the Giro left Italy's most beautiful mountain range just as quickly as it came and headed to the Veneto plain. We were once again on the road in search of pretty places - we had no trouble finding Valle di Cadore.

  • Saturday May 19, 2012

    Roadside St. 14: YMCA blasts, the girls dance, the Haribo alligator smiles and the old clock tower looks out over the noise, colour and an organisation which seems always to teeter on the edge of chaos. The Giro hits Cherasco.
