'Skol 6' Photo Gallery: We all know of Ed Hood's love of the '6 Day,' and everything else cycling, so you can imagine his excitement when he happened across a collection of photos from the 1980 London Skol 6 by Bill Kund. Bill has kindly given us permission to reproduce some of his brilliant track shots along with how it all came about.
Photo Special and Interviews: It's that time of year again and the CCC and the CCC-Liv teams are in Denia for their December training camps and media day. This year the two Polish registered teams were staying in the same hotel, much easier for us journalists. The women were first up and our man in Spain, Alastair Hamilton was there.
Ed goes cyclo-cross: Due to being in Cyprus, Ed Hood missed the Gent '6 Days' this year, which also means he missed the regulation Sunday cyclo-cross, the 2019 Belgian trip cross race would have been the DVV Verzekeringen Trofee Flandriencross in Hamme. Not to be outdone, he went to see a local 'cross in Dunfermline, Scotland and was pleasantly surprised.
The 2019 Rockland County Supercross Cup stood out from earlier iterations for two reasons. One was that the weather was consistently good, if unseasonably cold, both days. The second was that teamwork dominated both the women’s and men’s elite fields.
Photo Gallery: The big race for last and Heather Morrison is 'Roadside' for the Giro di Lombardia and the sixth race of her Italian autumn week. Bergamo and Como for the best shots of the start and finish under the falling leaves of Lombardia.
Photo Gallery: Race No.5 and the last before the big one: Il Lombardia, the 'Race of the Falling Leaves' the last big race of the season. Heather's day at the Gran Piemonte was the usual mixture of rider stalking, photographer scuffles and some great shots. Another day on the northern Italian roads for Heather.
Photo Gallery: Italian autumn race No.4 for Heather Morrison is the 100th edition of Milano-Torino. An easier day for our intrepid PEZ photographer, but one of the best so far with shots of the start presentation and the hard fight for the victory going to Canada's Michael Woods.
Photo Gallery: Race three in Heather's Italian autumn one-day Classics week, and she has moved north to Varese for the 'Tre Valli Varesine'. A surprising and exciting finalé was taken by Vuelta a España winner, Primoz Roglic and Heather was there for the full Italian race experience.
