    The 2016 Tour de France route presentation last week was greeted with (mostly) pleasure from the riders, a good mix of flat, time trial and climbing, with the emphasis on the climbing. Our PEZ Grand Tour expert, Ed Hood, was deep in the bowels of the London velodrome at the time of the presentation, but he's been let out of his cage to give us his Tour'16 First Look.

    Oct 22, 2015 - There really is only one BIG STORY at the moment and that's the 2016 Tour de France route presentation. We have the reactions from the riders, managers and organizers, plus video of the presentation from Paris, the route in 3D and the countryside of the Le Manche, the Grand Départ region. It's not all Tour de France, we also have more contract and team news for the 2016 peloton.

    Roadside St.21: The rain fell heavily on the Champs Élesées on Sunday, but that didn't dampen Ed and Callum's enthusiasm to get their unique view on the final stage in Paris. Both of them spread themselves round the circuit for the best photos and catch-ups with the characters of the 2015 Tour de France. The big Paris finalé.

    Tour de France 2015 - stage 21

    Race Report: It looked like the heavy rain was going to dampen the final stage of the Tour de France into Paris, but in the end the sprinters had their day. The big German, André Greipel, held his sprint back to the last meters to swoop past Alexander Kristoff for the most important Paris sprint.

    Roadside St.20: There's only one thing crazier than Alp d'Huez at the Tour de France - and that's the Dutch Corner on Alp d'Huez at the Tour de France. Ed & Callum were up the road, roadside, and inside the madness that is one of pro sport's maddest moments. Here's the full photo report.

  • Saturday July 25, 2015


    Race Report: Thibaut Pinot claimed his second stage win at the Tour de France in the mythical Alpe d'Huez three years after his debut at Porrentruy. Pinot resisted to the return of Nairo Quintana who attacked Chris Froome just as he promised to do but the Kenyan-born rider kept an advantage of 1.12 over his arch-rival in the overall classification on the eve of the conclusive stage in Paris.

    Roadside St.19: On such big day in the Alps, not all the action was on the roads... Ed Hood made a strategic move to the start village and caught up men who aren't afraid to speak their minds: photog John Pierce, & former pros Leon Van Bon, Tim Harris, Malcolm Elliott, Dag Otto Lauritzen.

    Race Report: With an attack in the ascent to the col de la Croix-de-Fer, 59km before the finish at La Toussuire, defending champion Vincenzo Nibali made it up for his disillusion of the first week of the Tour de France as he bounced back to brilliantly win the Alpine queen stage. Chris Froome retained the yellow jersey ahead of the grand finale at l'Alpe d'Huez.

    Roadside Stage 18: Two days in the Alps down and two to go and, as can be expected, Ed and Callum had to go against the power of the law to sneak onto the Lacets de Montvernier climb to bring you exclusive photos. A crazy climb on a crazy day at the Tour de France. PEZ Roadside:

    Tour de France 2015 - stage 18

    Race Report: A super-hard day in the Alps with seven categorized climbs: the long Glandon and the twisty Lacets de Montvernier. Bardet escaped into the early break and then left them on the climb of the Glandon to solo the last 40 kilometers to the line in Saint Jean de Maurienne. Two stage wins for the French this year!

    Roadside Stage 17: The best laid schemes o' mice an' men gang aft a-gley.. and that's the same for Tour de France journalists if they want to drive over the Col d'Allos on stage 17. Never to be out done, Ed always has a 'Plan B' at his finger tips. Where there is a bike race there is a story to tell pictures to take.

    Tour de France 2015 - stage 17

    Race Report: Simon Geschke took an exceptional win as he broke clear of the day long breakaway on the Col d'Allos to hold off a group of fast closing climbers. Van Garderen who was forced to abandon after overnight sickness and the GC guys once again played out a stalemate as Quintana was unable to gap Froome.

    Roadside Rest Day: Every Tour de France Ed Hood picks the week that takes in the last rest day and we know why: The Quick-Step 'Mussel Party' is something he will not miss. In fact I've heard they won't have it if Ed isn't coming. He also visited the MTN-Qhubeka and Lampre-Merida teams on his Tour 'rest day'.

    Tour'15 is in its final week and the Alps are on the horizon, all is not over for this French Grand Tour, or is it? Lee Rodgers casts his eye over the other side of the Tour: Sagan the new eternal second, Ex-dopers on TV should be careful what they say and what will happen in the Alps? All in Lee's Tour Lowdown.

    Roadside Stage 16: Froome stays in yellow, that man Sagan is second on the stage, again. It's just a typical day at the 2015 Grande Boucle and we're delighted to be part of it. We expected a break, we got one, we expected a solo winner and we got one. And another chapter in the Col de Manse's contribution to the story of Le Tour is writ.

    Tour de France 2015 - stage 16

    Race Report Stage 16: A big break took a big lead to the final climb of the day; Ruben Plaza attacked and had enough of a lead to hold Peter Sagan off on the descent in to the town of Gap. Behind; Vincenzo Nibali jumped away from the other GC men for 22 seconds, time in the bank for later? Another day of Tour excitement.

    Roadside Stage 15: Sunday was a fast, fast stage, so Photog Beardy McBeard jumped ahead of the race to catch the action on the category 4 climb of the Col de la Croix de Bauzon. A fast dash of 100 kilometers to the finish for a wrong turn to throw the Beard off schedule. More unique pics from the Tour:
