Racing: Carrera de San Rafael

Sitting in the comfort of our cubicles, watching the pros duke it out on European soil via internet broadcast is all well and good - but nothing compares to the ‘reality show’ of getting out there and doin’ it yourself. Last weekend’s Carrera de San Rafael served up some sunny local racing – NorCal style…

USPRO’06 RR: Easy As Pie For Hincapie

It all seemed scripted from the very beginning - George Hincapie racing in his hometown of Greenville, South Carolina for the stars and stripes over the climb he does in training over and over and over - he was supposed to win, and he did. The racing was wildly aggressive from the first minute onward with nary a let-up - PEZ was there for each roundhouse, upper-cut, and kidney shot.

BRITTour06: A Little Controversy

Tom Boonen, Belgium and Quick Step, world elite champion - he’s the polite, smiling handsome ‘boy-next-door’ isn’t he? Even the ‘boy-next-door’ ‘loses-it’ sometimes though - take Saturday’s penultimate stage of the Tour of Britain for example. But let’s have Pez-diarist Michael Morkov (Denmark) tell the story.

USPRO TT’06 – Don’t Fall Down

On paper it might have seemed a done deal, but if it weren't for Chris Baldwin's dumping it in the final corner, the result could have been different...but it wasn't, Baldwin fell down, and David Zabriskie, he of the new beard, took the US TT Title. PEZ was there for all the fun...and walking.

DTour06 St7: Unstoppable Mr. Voigt

Stage 7 in the Deutschland tour, it’s the time trial and the classification honours are on the line. Jens Voigt, the German powerhouse has proved unstoppable so far in the tour, can he continue his run of wins into the time trial?

DTour TT Preview: PEZ Rides The Course

It’s happened before and could happen Tuesday – a final TT deciding a race gc. The stage 7 time trial could make or break the Tour of Germany title, so PEZ kitted up for a first hand look at the 38km corsa.

DTour Stg.6: Voigt Sprouts Wings

In a move reminiscent of George Hincapie’s mountain stage win in the ’05 Tour de France, CSC’s big German Jens Voigt grew wings and climbed like a man possessed, or at least transformed by the leader’s jersey, to win an inspiring battle over last year’s champ Levi Leipheimer.
