Ed Roadside: From the comfort of his 'virtual cafe' Ed Hood hit the Yorkshire roads for his favourite event - The time trial, and better than that - The World elite men's time trial. The best men against the clock lined up in Northallerton for Ed's appraisal. Of course, the star of the day was Rohan Dennis.
OVO Energy Tour of Britain Stage 1 PeloPics: Fresh from his visit to the Vuelta a España, Ed Hood had a more local assignment last weekend - The start of stage 1 of the OVO Energy Tour of Britain in Glasgow. The 70 kilometres from Ed's house to the start of the British Tour was much easier than the 2,000K to the Vuelta salida in Alicante, but it was just as much fun.
Vuelta Stage 3 and 4 PeloPics: As the Spanish Grand Tour heads North, our PEZman on la Vuelta, Alastair Hamilton, has done his best to bring you more 'ROADSIDE' action and a taste of Vuelta tapas. Stage 3 final climb and the start of stage 4 are on the menu.
Ed Roadside in Scotland: The different Tours of Scotland have played a part in the cycling life of PEZman Ed Hood, but there hasn't been a 'home' race since the 80s for Ed to stand 'roadside'. All change... Now the three stage 2019 Woman's Tour of Scotland has hit the road for his, and many others, enjoyment.
Flanders Classics Day 3: Ed and the gang topped off their busy weekend with the cobbles and frites of Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne on Sunday - typical Flemish fare for a 'race chase'. All the fun of a bike race: Bike spying, mechanic stalking, star spotting and the donkeys, but no glitzy presentation. Proper Flanders.
Flanders Classics Day 2: After Ed and the gang's visit to the EF Education First team and the ‘Koers’ cycle racing museum on day 1 of their annual Flemish trip, it was time to see some racing. The Omloop Het Nieuwsblad is the first of the early Spring Classics and where the riders want to strike the first blow. Ed on the 'kinderkopje'.
Flanders Classics Day 1: It wouldn't be March if Ed Hood and the gang were not in Belgium for the opening races of the Flanders Classics - Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne. Ed arrived a day early to visit the EF Education First team and the ‘Koers’ Flanders cycle racing museum. Ed's Flemish weekend - The first day.
Valencia Stage 2 Photo Gallery: After the easy 'photo-shoot' at the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana stage 1 time trial, it was time for Al Hamilton to do a bit of 'Race Chasing' as Italian PEZ-man Ale Federico calls it. Stage 2 was set in the mountains behind Alicante, take it away Al.
Copenhagen 6 Day: As the curtain came down on the final days of the Copenhagen 6 Days, Ed Hood was working hard bellow the boards to see out the last three days... or nights, and so the '6 Day' gerbils stop racing round in circles until next winter.
