In a relatively short 102km stage to day from Sшro to Hillerшd, T-Mobile’s Olaf Pollack was finally successful in winning a stage of the Post Danmark Rundt. After yesterday’s stage, T-Mobile Director Brian Holm warned that this was the man to watch… and Pollack did not disappoint.

Denmark: Fab Fabian Fab!

Team CSC again tested their hand at the Black Jack table today and it paid off big-time as Fabian Cancellera won the second stage of Post Danmark Rundt. The Swiss attacked in the final kilometers of the race to win the stage and take the overall lead.

Post Danmark Rundt: Preview & Stage 1!

Dude….somebody pissed off Thor the Nordic god of thunder... and he pissed on the peloton the entire day in the opening stage of the Tour of Denmark. Just like last year, the rain was torrential and the forecast for the rest of the week looks to be more of the same.

Vattenfall06: Freire, Zabel, Pippo On The Line!

The ProTour has one-day fever again as the peloton battles it out in Germany for the newly renamed, ‘Vattenfall Cyclassics’.

PEZ In The Mix: Belgian Nats 2006

The Tour over-shadowed everything this year, especially with speculation about how it would be ‘pas de Lance’ and then the ‘Operacion Puerto’ scandal before the race had even started. Lost in the hype were the results of the various National Championships, held the weekend prior to ‘le depart.’ One of the fresh new champion’s jerseys missing from Strasbourg was that of Belgium – how come?

Type 1’s RAAM: New Jersey Here We Come

PEZ caught up Team Type 1 yesterday as they continued to gather a full head of steam heading into the final mountainous stretch over the Appalachian Mountains and then into New Jersey. Spirits are incredibly high and the speeds are even higher - a record wants to be broken.

RAAM06: 1000 Miles Done For Team Type One

PEZ caught up with Phil Southerland an hour after his last shift, which saw the team head over the nearly 11,000 foot Wolf Creek Pass and near the 1000 mile mark. The riding has been hard so far, but the results are above expectations - and the mountains are more or less behind them for awhile at least.
