Tour De PEZ: Into the Vosges!

Roadside St.8: As an opener for the next three days in the Vosges mountains, I saddled up for a ride over stage 8’s final climbs to see how tough these slopes really are. And while the road might set the stage, it’s the fans who make the day…

The Tour explodes onto the roads of Yorkshire!

Roadside Report: For Ed's first day roadside at last year's Tour he went straight to where it all happens - the finishline to get all the latest. Tired cyclists, happy cyclists, angry directors and hungry for news journos, the finishline is always an interesting mix of riders, teamstaff, family, girlfriends and hangers on.
