The first Grand Tour of the season is the last to announce their route for 2021. As always the 'percorso' has everything, including a time trial finalé. Ed Hood has run an educated eye over the course for the 'PEZ Giro d'Italia First Look'.
The Vuelta of the Cathedrals, yes the cathedrals of mountain climbing pain! The organisers of the Spanish tour have searched out more stunning climbs for this year's edition, Ed Hood has run an eye over the 'recorrido' to give us his Vuelta first look.
It has been a very strange 2020 season, but some things never change - La Vuelta a España will be the last Grand Tour of the year and, as is the norm, it's full of mountainous climbs. Ed Hood breaks down the Spanish Tour and has a good look at the course and riders.
De Ronde van Vlaanderen is the 'Real' World championships, if you are a Flemish bike fan. The Tour of Flanders will be more of a slow fuse, but when the peloton hits those cobbled climbs round Oudenaarde... Watch for the fireworks! Ed Hood looks at the history, course and who's hot for Sunday.
Do you remember Kuurne and the Het Nieuwsblad back before Covid-19 stopped the 2020 season? Normally they would be the foreplay to the main act of Wevelgem, Flanders and Roubaix, but... Ed Hood takes us from Gent (Iepre/Ypres) over the cobbles and the bergs to Wevelgem before Sunday's race.
