PEZ Preview: Tour De France 2017!

2017 Tour de France Preview: 'It's Tour Time Baby!' And Ed Hood will be roadside at the French Grand Tour, but first he gives us the benefit of his vast Tour experience with the PEZ Preview. Will Froome take his fourth or is it time for Quintana, Aru or a young gun? Maybe even a Frenchman or a final pistol shot for Contador.

PEZ Preview: Giro d’Italia 2017

2017 Giro d'Italia Preview: The first Grand Tour of 2017 starts on Friday in Sardinia - The Giro, arguably the best stage race of the year. Ed Hood, our most experience race 'follower', takes a close look at the Corsa Rosa past champions, route and who will be the man in pink in Milan on the 28th of May.

PEZ Preview: Liège-Bastogne-Liège ’17

Liège-Bastogne-Liège Preview: The old lady of the spring Classics will roll out of Liège on Sunday morning for a grueling six hours plus of constant ups and downs. A hard man's race that always has a tough rider cross the line first. Ed Hood previews 'La Doyenne' in our build-up to Sunday's oldest Classic.

PEZ Preview: Flèche Wallonne ’17

Flèche Wallonne Preview: The Ardennes Classics are upon us. Amstel had a worthy winner in Philippe Gilbert, but he will be missing Wednesday's Flèche Wallonne and Liège. Not to worry, plenty more top-men in the running. Sam Larner takes a look at the history, course and riders of the Wallonne Classic in the PEZ Preview.

PEZ Preview: Amstel Gold Race ’17

Amstel Gold Race Preview: The dust has settled on the cobbles of Flanders and Roubaix and so the WorldTour turns its eyes towards the hillier races of the Dutch and Belgian Ardennes. Flèche-Wallonne and Liège-Bastogne-Liège are next week, but this Sunday is Holland's biggest one day race, the Amstel Gold Race.

PEZ Preview: Paris-Roubaix ’17

Paris-Roubaix Race Preview: The Queen of Classics, Paris-Roubaix, the Hell of the North will hit the cobbles this Sunday, the one-day race every rider would love to win. Yes, It's a lottery, but a 'nobody' never wins L'enfer du Nord. In the PEZ Roubaix Preview, Ed Hood has everything you need to know ahead of the cobbles.

PEZ Preview: Flanders ’17

Tour of Flanders Race Preview: The biggest day of the Flemish cycling year is on Sunday - De Ronde van Vlaanderen or the Tour of Flanders, if you prefer. Ed Hood looks at the possible winner, the course and the past of (probably) the best race of the season.

PEZ Preview: Milano-Sanremo ’17

Milano-Sanremo Race Preview: The first big 'Monument' of the Classics season is this Saturday - Milano-Sanremo or 'La Primavera'. Ed Hood runs his experienced eye over the history, course and who will be first to cross the finish line on the Via Roma in Sanremo. The real season starts now!

PEZ Preview: Tirreno-Adriatico ’17

Tirreno-Adriatico Race Preview: Paris-Nice is well under way and next up is the Tirreno-Adriatico. Seven stages, one team time trial and one individual test, plus five tough road stages, with one summit finish. Sam Larner takes a look at the history, the course and the possible protagonists.
