25 years-old and in his second WorldTour team, Harry Tanfield is cutting himself a fine career as a professional cyclist. Ed Hood talks to Harry about how he's handling the COVID-19 lockdown and what next.
Young Gun Interview: As ever, Ed Hood has been keeping his eye on the results of the 'promising riders' and the name Teniel Campbell has stuck out like the proverbial sore thumb. The twenty-two year old Trinidadian has been winning at home and now in Europe and will be a pro for the Valcar Cylance team in 2020.
Interview: Skylar Schneider knows the Tour of America's Dairyland better than most - she's raced it a half dozen times, over almost a third of her lifetime. And as a pro rider for the powerful Boels Dalmans cycling team, she's looking forward to this year's TOAD and its laid back, fun to ride atmosphere and some serious speed work in America's Midwest.
Retro Interview: Peter Hill was one of the top British time trialists of the 1960s who went to France to find his fortune on the road... and never returned. A string of amateur victories led to a pro contract with the Peugeot team and the Tour de France, then what? Ed Hood found out.
Interview: Scott Mares of CrossBikeReview.com graciously asked the age old question - how'd you get PEZ started? It's a story I never get tired of telling - and am thankful someone (anyone) still wants to know. So if you've got nothing better to do - here's a few minutes of PEZ history - as told by the PEZ myself.
World's Diary: UAE Team Emirates' Rui Costa will be fighting it out with the top riders of the Pro peloton in today's Elite Men's World Road Race Championships in Bergen, we managed to get a few quick words from the 2013 champion as he readied himself for battle.
Rider Interview: Nils Politt is a big guy, standing at 1.92meters (6ft 4in) and weighing in at 80kg (180lb), he is just the rider Alexander Kristoff would want by his side in the Northern Classics. Alastair Hamilton managed to have a word with the big German at the Katusha-Alpecin Spanish training camp in Calpe in December to hear about his first year with the WorldTour team.
The cyclocross season is now in full swing with an on-going battle between World champion Wout Van Aert and Dutch champion Mathieu Van der Poel, but Ed Hood has gone back to Britain in the 60s and 70s to talk to multi-champion John Atkins. Life was different in those days and the cyclo-cross racing was hard, there was no carbon and electric gears in those days!
