Down amongst the thousands of fans, family, team staff and just plain crazies in the Netherlands for the Worlds was our very own Ed Hood. It's time now to re-live the action, the sights, the smells & the music with him from the Elite Men's Road Race - Roadside!
The first road race is won and done at the World Championships and our man Ed Hood was there rubbing shoulders with the best to get the lowdown on the circuit and the expert's favorites for Sunday.
It might have been a day off from racing today at the World Titles but our man Ed Hood on the roadside had no such luxuries. With interviews to conduct and a region to discover, Ed hit the ground running today with camera in hand. It's time for another installment of Valkenburg - Roadside!
A great day of racing at the Worlds saw Tony Martin double up his golds and Taylor Phinney doing the same with silver. To capture this historic day Ed Hood moved PEZ Mobile HQ almost onto the race circuit to bring us all the action. He isn't just reporting from the roadside this year - he's living there!
With today's big time trial just hours away, PEZ is on the ground at the World Time Trial Championships in search of the latest trends in cheating the wind – and annoying the UCI.
With the last 3 winners of the U/23 time trial going on to be big names in the WorldTour it was important that we got down to the finishline to chat with the future stars of our sport. There's no better man for that job than our roadside reporter, Ed Hood and Ed managed to talk to the winners and all the up and comers as they reflected on what was a very tough time trial.
With the result of the team time trial coming down to OmegaPharma's ability to smoothly ride up the Cauberg and BMC's ability to explode we thought it was time to take a closer look at this crucial part of the World's circuit. Our man on the scene, Ed Hood laced up the trainers and hit the road to examine this mythical climb.
From the pits with the mechanics to the suffering of the riders on the Cauberg and even into the bars, our own Ed Hood was there getting amongst it at the Team Time Trial in Limburg - Roadside!
Our roadside reporter, Ed Hood has certainly covered a lot of races in his time but even he has never seen a stand alone team time trial quite like tomorrow's big race. This year's new 6 man event has certainly captured his and the public's interest and Ed lets us in on his thoughts on the Worlds and 'that' race that everybody is talking about.
What better way to preview the Worlds than to ask a man who knows the region like the back of his hand? Peter Easton from Velo Classic Tours takes us through an in depth look at the region of Limburg in the Netherlands which hosts this year's race. It's Worlds time!
The Tour is well underway and it has had its fair share of crashes and controversy in only a few stages. As you would guess there is soo much Euro Tour Trash out there, but we have got our hands dirty and sifted through to find the juicy bits! And anything else interesting that might be happening.
It almost seems commonplace now, the World Time Trial Championship, but it was only a little over a decade ago when the first Worlds TT took place with a certain Boardman coming out on top. PEZ's Ed Hood is in Salburg and takes a look at the brief history of the Worlds Chrono and previews what's coming tomorrow.
With the 2006 World Championships starting up Thursday – what better way to look ahead than a misty-eyed look back? Ed Hood takes us back 24 years to Goodwood, England, when a young Greg LeMond’s love affair with the rainbow stripes was still just a crush…
