    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.

    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.

    The World champion won the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad on Saturday in a fine solo manner, no not Peter Sagan but Lizzie Armitstead. This week Lee Rodgers contemplates the Flemish Classics and those characters of the road that keep us glued to the television set. The curse of the rainbow jersey... we don't think so.

    Moving on from 'Millargate' last week, Lee Rodgers now has the return of Bjarne Riis to team management to discuss. David Millar will be in a behind the scenes position that could influence young riders, but Riis will be in charge of a (possible) WorldTour team. Here's Lee's opinion on the return of Bjarne 'Mr. 60%' Riis.

    David Millar: Ex-pro rider, ex-doper and now 'Doping Supremo' for British Cycling. Controversial would cover it and Lee Rodgers explains, in his usual forthright way, why Millar should not be working with a National sports body. British Cycling has always set its self up as a flag waving anti-doping establishment, hand in hand with Team Sky. Maybe it's not Millar time just yet.

    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.

    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.

    Lee has been keeping his eye on the happenings in Australia and Spain and we are sorry to say carnage and injury are involved. The outcome for the Giant-Alpecin team was not good, but could have been much worse. Simon Gerrans crashed but came out on top Down Under. Phil Liggett has also been in Australia, his crash was due to a very different fall, one from grace.
