Ed Hood has missed out on his trips to Belgium for the '6 Days' of Gent since 2020, but this year was going to be the full Flemish experience. A cyclo-cross, 't Kuipke and of course beer and those famous nights in the bars of Gent.
PEZman Ed Hood was in Belgium last weekend for the '6 Days' of Gent, to see the farewell to ‘t Kuipke Keizer’ Iljo Keisse. When in Belgium in November you have to go to a cyclo-cross, and so Ed and his chums took in the Telenet Superprestige Merksplas. PEZ veld kant.
For stage 2 of the Tour of Britain, Ed Hood got his possy together for a raid on the Scottish/English Border. Another wet and windy day on the moors, but a 'race chase' can't be turned down.
We don't get the chance to go 'Roadside' as much as we used to, thanks first to covid-19 and now the soaring fuel costs. Ed Hood had the 2022 Tour of Britain on his door-step, if he had a 100 mile long door-step, but you can't miss a 'Race Chase'...
PEZ Roadside reports have been a bit thin on the ground for the last two years, thanks to our 'friend' Covid-19. But as the British national road championships had been postponed to the third week in October Ed Hood couldn't miss the chance of some roadside action in the cobbled centre of Lincoln.
Ed Hood hasn't been to a top race for... well, a long time, thank you to Mr. Covid. So, with the Tour of Britain stage 7 starting just down the road he couldn't miss out on the excitement. Ed goes 'Roadside' in Scotland.
Our PEZ-Man in Italy, Alessandro Federico, wasn't going to miss the 2021 Strade Bianche, but no race accreditation and the worry of being stopped by the police added new challenges. Burt 'Race Chasing' is Ale's speciality, if anyone could do it... Ale - Il campione race chaser.
One of the most beautiful races of the year is without a doubt the Strade Bianche on the now mythical white gravel roads. Following the race and capturing all the action and beauty of the 2015 race roadside for PEZ was our experienced race chaser Alessandro who had a perfect day out in the Tuscan countryside.
Ed Roadside in Belgium: From the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad on Saturday, Ed's gang of 'Race Chasers' moved a little down the road for the second race of the Belgian opening weekend - Sunday's Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne and more cobbled action. A stunningly dry day for a northern Classic, but that wouldn't 'dampen' the atmosphere.
