PEZ Roadside at Strade Bianche 2015

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.

PEZ Roadside: Cobbled Fun in Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne’20

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.

Le Tour Roadside Revisited: A Tour Chauffeur’s Tale

For every Batman there is a Robin and Callum MacGregor is the Robin to Ed Hood's Batman. Callum is the PEZ Tour de France chauffeur; yes, he sees the French Grand Tour close up, rub shoulders with the stars, look at the distractions and drive on those closed roads, but he does have a lot to put up with. Driving Miss Eddy.

PEZ Roadside: Chasing Il Lombardia!

"Spectating at Il Lombardia" was the subject of the email from PEZ-Fan Ron V. looking for tips on chasing the 'Race of the Falling Leaves'. I had the perfect itinerary for him - since I'd already done it in 2015. With the rescheduled Lombardia on Saturday, August 15, here's a nice little read and photo book that I think captures the epicness and essence of beautiful race in a truly beautiful setting.
