    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    ‘I read the news today, oh boy…’ sang John Lennon a good while back, and the echo of his words came to me these past two weeks or so as I scanned my eye over the offerings from the usual websites, most of the interesting stuff was enough to have my eyebrows lifting up.

    Lee's Lowdown: Will we ever wake up from the doping nightmare? Just when we were looking forward a quiet Holiday period, the shadow of Lance has casts itself across the World again and all the old feelings of doubt have returned. Lee Rodgers gets his doping rake out to till the rotten soil... just one more time.

    Lee's Lowdown: With the UCI go-ahead allowing disk brakes in the pro peloton, Lee Rodgers puts his weight behind the argument. Lee has been using a disk equipped bike, so he is in the best position to express an opinion. Disk brakes... It's the way forward!

    lowdown-russian-olympic-team-940

    With the 'discovery' that Russian athletics has been embroiled in underhand doping practices, showing that the problem isn't confined to cycling, Lee Rodgers asks the question 'how deep does it go?' That throws up the next question of 'conflict of interest'.

    US Cycling is under new management and the Giro is planning to start in Japan, just the sort of fodder for Lee Rodgers to get his teeth into. In Lee's eyes the US change can only be a good thing, but could the Giro money not be spent in a better way, the Giro Rosa?

    They say you shouldn’t mix Tramadol and beer but what the heck, let’s see what happens. I should state that whilst I am drinking an actual beer, I’m not actually taking Tramadol but rather writing about it.

    In the middle of his busiest time of the year, Lee Rodgers still managed to send in his Lowdown from the Taiwan KOM Challenge. But it's not all plain sailing, a landslide is one of those problems even Lee just couldn't plan for.

    Sky rider Danny Pate is off to ride for the Optum team in 2016 and as a rider who hates doping, Lee said: "let’s talk about him." A 'clean American' rider from the last generation is quite unique, his opinions seem to have started a war of words.

    The announcement of Ivan Basso's retirement from competition has thrown Lee Rodgers off his original subject of the Giro di Lombardia. As these things go, one thing led to another and he has broadened his horizons for a good rant at all things doping, team management, celebrity, the UCI and that man Armstrong.

    The World Championships are in full swing and the men's individual time trial on Wednesday is a real cliff-hanger and more open than it has been for many a year. Lee Rodgers casts an expert eye over the course and runners for the Rainbow battle against the clock.

    Lee Rodgers has changed his mind on the excitement of the Vuelta, due to the efforts of the young riders who have been battling over the final red jersey. But all is not well in the wider World - Actor Ben Foster has admitted to taking PED's to emulate Lance Armstrong in the film 'The Program'. The old and the new face of cycling.

    Lee Rodgers has raced hard, trained hard and put his body through the mill for his cycling and then did it again for a comeback. In that time he couldn't understand how people could ride a bike and not want to race, or not ride a bike at all! Now he gets it and explains his 'road to Damascus' and seeing the light of cycling just for the fun of it.
