    Rio de Janeiro - Brasil - wielrennen - cycling - radsport - cyclisme -  Men’s Omnium Scratch Race - 14/08/2016 - Mark Cavendish (GBR) pictured during track day-4 - Olympic Games 2016 in Rio - photo LB/RB/Cor Vos © 2016

    Lowdown: Britain's Mark Cavendish has won the Olympic medal he so wanted, although it is not the color of metal he so desired it is still a medal, but at what cost? Lee Rodgers takes a look at the Olympic omnium and the general deportment of Mr. Cavendish. Not so much of a race analysis, but more of a closer inspection of the Manx Missile's psychology.

    The Olympic Games are well and truly underway, how can we tell? There is a cart load of controversy, accusations and sniping... Lee Rodgers, not a man to walk away from that kind of thing, has his two-penneth worth on the backstage events to clarify some points and stir the pot of Olympic shambolism.

    lowdown-japan16-cervelo-940

    During the Tour de France Lee Rodgers took himself to Japan for a sad event, but that visit re-kindled his love for the roads and scenery of Japan. It's not all crowded neon lit Tokyo, geisha girls and sushi, there is so much more to the land of the rising sun; climbing the mountains of southern Japan, rolling through the rice fields or sprint action on the Keiren track.

    Alpecin Talents Day 2016 in Duren

    Lee Rodgers has been out for a 'get lost' bike ride and what better way to sharpen the mind. Lee's musings wander from the lost joy of childhood cycling through to the snobbery and the new 'cliquishness' that has appeared in the world of the bike. The Lowdown on the cycling dress-code (if there is one):

    This week Lee Rodgers has more controversy to have a go at than you can shake a stick at. The UCI, Brian Cookson, bike doping, dodgy team managers, questionable team owners and... yes, that man Lance Armstrong yet again. Where to start? Lee goes for 'Public Enemy No.1' as a starting point, what's new Mr. Armstrong.

    Lee Rodgers has been off his bike for a few weeks due to back pain, this has allowed him time to turn his eagle eye on a different problem - Urban Cycling. The Canadian City of Toronto is facing up to the dilemma of cyclists putting their lives in danger on the roads and have plans for 525 kilometers of cycle lanes.

    The curtain has closed on the 2016 Giro d'Italia with an ‘unbelievable’ performance in the last stages by Vincenzo Nibali. They way the Italian champion went from sick to champion was 'incredible' and yes I think you know where Lee will be heading in this Final Giro Lowdown. But, are we wrong to question every performance?

    Ahead of the final hard week of the Giro d'Italia the peloton take their third rest day in north Italy and Lee Rodgers gives us his thoughts on the acton so far. Who's hot and who's not: Steven Kruijswijk looks like a Grand Tour champion, has Vincenzo Nibali lost all chance and is the battle over for Alejandro Valverde? All this and more in Lee's Giro Lowdown.

    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.

    After the first nine days of the Giro d'Italia, Lee Rodgers gives us his Lowdown on the action so far. The German sprinters get full marks as does Brambilla, Jungels and the Etixx - Quick-Step team. Lee is unsure of the form of Vincenzo Nibali, but is sure that Ilnur Zakarin should not be in the Italian Grand Tour.

    The Shane Sutton controversy rumbles on. Since last week, the out-spoken Australian has resigned from British Cycling under the cloud of accusations. But there has been some riders speaking up for the results gained and Sutton's motivational style. Lee Rodgers weighs-up the situation and gives us his usual unique lowdown on the Sutton case.

    Doping and sexism don't usually appear together in a cycling article, but you can rely on Lee Rodgers to combine both subjects in his Lowdown. Welcome back Mustafa Sayar to the Tour of Turkey, we have missed his EPO fueled victories and good-bye Jess Varnish, British Cycling don't want you. All sounds a bit unfair.

    Just when you thought it was safe to come out and admit that you are a cycling fan; mechanical doping comes along and we are back with our heads under the blanket. But which is worse: The chemical or the mechanical advantage? Lee Rodgers discusses the conflicting views on the different 'cheating' methods in today's Lowdown.

    Paris-Roubaix was such a terrific race that it would be impossible for Lee Rodgers to ignore the Northern battle. The Lowdown argues over the cobbled Royal family, but on the evidence of Sunday's race, L'enfer du Nord is the Queen of the Classics - Long may she reign.

    As Paris-Roubaix approaches, the two World road champions are standing head and shoulders above the rest of the peloton and Lee Rodgers sees a second coming and the end of the World as we know it. Maybe not, but he does have the Lowdown on Peter Sagan delivering us from evil.

    It has not been a good week for Belgium; First there were terrorist bombs killing 31 people. Then we received the news of Daan Myngheer's heart attack in France and the death of Antoiné Demoitié after crashing in Gent-Wevelgem. Lee takes a look at a very sad time for Belgium in today's Lowdown.

    This week Lee Rodgers has the lowdown on non-Pro cycling dopers. There is a growing amount of 'amateur' doping cases and ex-Pro and TV pundit Bob Roll has been giving us his lowdown on the subject. So, this is Lee's Lowdown on Bob's Lowdown - Lowdown.

    The build-up to 'La Classicissima' is over and the snow affected Paris-Nice and Tirreno-Adriatico have given us some pointers to who will be first across the line on the Via Roma. Lee Rodgers has been following the action and gives us his usual individual lowdown on the up and coming Primavera.

    CIPO2-940

    The usually raucous Taipei Bike Show, now in its 28th year, was a tad more subdued this year than usual as foreign brands and companies are tightening the belts in the face of a trend of declining profits, but there was still plenty of shiny sparkly stuff on show, along with the ubiquitous show girls jam-packed into outfits that sent heart rate monitors dangerously close to exploding.

    Strade Bianche men 2016

    The PEZ virtual office is made up of diverse personalities, but there is one thing we all agree on; the Strade Bianche is a wonderful race and should be part of the UCI WorldTour and be a full blown Classic. Now that the dust has settled on the Tuscan roads, Lee Rodgers gives us his view of the race and the Cancellara knock-out blow for his historic third victory.
