US Soigneur Trudi Rebsamen Gets PEZ’d!

In the 80's there weren't many female soigneurs in the pro peloton, but along came the 7-Eleven and everything changed. Trudi Rebsamen was amongst the first, Ed Hood spoke to her about cycling 'in the day' and her late partner Steve Tilford.

The Riders Who Made the Track to Road Transition Part 2

When Ed Hood listed the track riders who turned successfully to the road, it caused a landslide of suggestion of the riders Ed had missed. So, here is part 2 and even more 'Trackies turned Roadies'.

PEZ Bookshelf: The Midlife Cyclist

Carefully working my way through Phil Cavell's “The Midlife Cyclist” for some weeks now, a remarkable book of startling scope, whenever I mention the title it causes people to smile or laugh indulgently. But “The Midlife Cyclist” is actually a thought-provoking exploration of something that has never before existed: a great cohort of middle-aged athletes rewriting our knowledge of human health and performance.

From Another Sport to Cycling!

Recently we ran a piece about riders who had transitioned from track to road – or in the case of Theo Bos, back to track, again. But what about riders who have come in to bike racing from an entirely different sport? Currently we have three shining examples of this radical change of direction.

The PEZ Top Heroes of All Time!

When we were younger we all had heroes, but as the years pass that changes to an admiration of a person's style, personality and in this case, cycling ability. Ed Hood has taken a poll of his chums and the PEZ crew to find the 'Top Cycling Heroes of All Time' (in our humble opinion).

PEZ Bookshelf: Peloton Legends

Sports fans love comparisons. Baseball is famous for its obsession with statistics (“The most successful left-handed pitcher throwing against a Chicago team on a Tuesday evening...”) and certainly all sports have record-holders. Pro cycling defies easy comparison of its stars. Can we figure out who was truly The Greatest of All Time?
