    Tour de France 2015 - stage 3

    Race Report: On a day that saw spectacular crashes, unprecedented neutralizations, abandonments, chaos, lost jerseys and fantastic attacks, it all came down to the Wall of Huy, and it was the specialist classic climber of Joaquim Rodríguez who rode the rest of the race off his wheel to take the win atop the famous climb.

    Roadside Report: The cheese capital of the world might seem like an odd choice to visit when covering a bike race, but with Gouda on the route of stage two for this year's Tour de France, we reckoned it was worth a look. As the biggest bike race in the world rolls into town, it was fitting to check out a town at one with status symbols...

    Tour de France 2015 - stage 2

    Race Report: German Andre Greipel mastered the crosswinds to cruise to the first road stage win of the Tour this year. Behind him the main favourites were left scattered across the roads of the Netherlands as GC hope was extinguished for a number of riders.

    Roadside Report: Anticipation comes in many different forms: nervous, expectant, pressured, feared. The first Saturday in July 2015 sees dreams fulfilled for some, the next obvious step taken by others, and for a select few the seemingly impossible coming true.

    Tour de France 2015 - stage 1

    Race Report: The 2015 Tour de France is on the road in Utrecht and Australian ex-Hour record holder, Rohan Dennis, gave his BMC team the stage win and the first yellow jersey of this year. He didn’t just win, he set a new Tour time trial record of 55.446 kph.

    tdf15gc00_prep650

    Roadside Report: The Team BMC & Bora-Argon18 press conferences are contrasts, that would probably be an ideal situation for an aging party king – the day starts off early in what resembles a nightclub, and ends a hundred feet up in the air with some hi-tech gourmet cooking. Not my regular Friday … but then, it's a long time since I could ever dream about calling myself a nightclub god.

    Roadside Report: We could just go and get all the same pictures as everyone else today, but as we're in Utrecht for the first time, let's have a look around instead. Not the smartest idea as the mercury soared, but sometimes you've got to hurt a little to live a little, to appreciate what's around you.

    TDFR 2014 - stage -21

    Saturday is the big day, the 2015 Tour de France launches its self down the start ramp in Utrecht for the stage 1 individual time trial and the first yellow jersey. Our most experienced Tour follower, Ed Hood, has run his eye over the past Tour stats, the parcours and the main contenders. Here comes the biggest race of the year... Vive le Tour!

    TDFR 2014 - stage -21

    The organisers of the biggest bike race in the World have announced the route of the 2015 French Grand Tour. It's a tough parcours with a lot of climbing and very little time trialing, but the sprinters do get their opportunities. Our first thoughts; tough but fair.

    Roadside: The Tour has been over for a week and as the dust settles in Paris our man Ed Hood is back home to ‘normality’ with his French memories. From Carcassonne to Paris, through the Pyrenees and up to the ‘La Ville-Lumière’; here are Ed’s twenty-one top favourites from this year’s French adventure.

    I knew it was a good Tour when only a couple days in I'd already lost track of the days, and by the end of the week I actually couldn't remember what I'd done just three days earlier. It was my first Tour in 11 years, and this was our final day on the race - destination Briancon, via the Col du Lautaret.

    Roadside St.21: Ed Hood’s 2014 Tour de France adventure comes to an end and as he makes his way into the centre of Paris, Ed gives us his thoughts on the riders and everything Tour. As always on the last stage there is time to take in all the sights and reflect on another Tour down.

    Lee Rodgers casts his eye over the 2014 Tour de France's stars & action, the good, the bad and the ugly. It turned out to be a very different Tour from the one predicted three weeks ago – was it an exciting Tour?

    tdf14st21-nibaliwine650

    Race Report: In a race that’s been all about attacking, and attacking again it came down to a sprint finish in Paris. It almost didn’t though as Team Sky attempted to recover from their misfortunes but nothing was going to deny the big German and arguably best sprinter around, Marcel Kittel. From start to finish, he’s shown he’s the man to watch in the dash for the line.

    tdf14st20-tt650

    Roadside St.20: The 2014 Tour de France's only time trial was a long 54km last chance for riders hoping to climb or defend the gc positions. But getting there is half the fun, so PEZ spent the morning down in Bergerac checking out the latest tt rigs before heading onto the parcours.

    tdf14st20-martin650

    Race Report: A long time trial full of action saw Tony Martin once again show his class with a superb win but it was the GC battle that had the excitement boiling today with 8 out of the top 10 GC places changing after the time trial was done and dusted. Stage 20 of the 2014 Tour de France was a great day for some and a nightmare for others...

    Roadside Report: From the religious tourist trap of Lourdes to the history of Le Tour and on to to the backstage areas with the buses, tour tech and more - Ed Hood was everywhere today taking it all in. It might have been a rainy day in the South-West of France but it was a great day out roadside at Le Tour. Let's have a look at Ed's day through his eyes...

    tdf14st19-ramunas650

    Race Report: It looked like a re-run of the Nîmes finish as a Garmin rider struggled to hold off a charging peloton. This time, though, perhaps aided by a big crash 3km from home, the US-based team finished their man Ramúnas Navardauskas ahead of all of the fancied sprinters.

    Roadside: Vincenzo Nibali showed his class today and won his fourth stage on the Hautacam after passing our man in France; Ed Hood on the Tourmalet. Let’s see what he got up to on the mythical Pyrenean climb, the last mountain of this year’s Tour de France.

    tdf14st18-nibali650

    Race Report: On a day when Vincenzo Nibali could have sat back and watched the others fight it out for the podium places, the ‘Shark of Messina’ rode away from everyone with 10 kilometres of the Hautacam still to climb. Behind the French jumped Valverde to push him off the podium.
