Groupama FDJ’s Lewis Askey Gets PEZ’d!

The 2022 Paris-Roubaix was dry and dusty and Britain's Lewis Askey thundered over the northern French cobbles to finish in the famous Vélodrome André-Pétrieux, bloodied, but a 'L'enfer du Nord' finisher. Ed Hood caught up with Lewis to hear about Roubaix and how his season has been going so far.

Replay: PEZ Interviews Richard Moore

In light if the tragic news of Mr. Moore's unexpected passing earlier this week, I thought it worthwhile to repost this interview we did in 2014.   By then Richard was already a well established cycling journalist & author, and as an excellent writer, he also made for a great interview.

Not if your name is Barry Hoban and you feel that the 'over-drive' is in your legs.
