The Amsterdam Six Finale

After his charges had some success in the first half of the race in Amsterdam Ed Hood was hoping for more of the same in the back half but instead most of the spoils went to Paris-Roubaix champion, Niki Terpstra.

Rocking & Rolling At The Copenhagen Six

Copenhagen Six Day 2014: With five riders to look after as a runner at the Copenhagen Six, Ed Hood had his work cut out for him but he still had time to rock out to the music, take a few photos and soak up the atmosphere from inside this famous race.

At The Start Of The Copenhagen 6

First two days of the Copenhagen Six day cycling race: The rock 'n' roll carnival that is the European Six scene just finished up in Berlin and before you know it they've packed up again and moved further North into the icy surrounds of Denmark as the big names hit the boards in a frozen Copenhagen. Our runner on the scene Ed Hood checks in after the first two days of action.

Rockin’ & Rollin’ at The Rotterdam Six!

First held back in 1936 the Rotterdam Six Day is a classic in the six day cycling scene in more ways than one. The tradition, the hard racing & the entertainment create an atmosphere like no other. PEZ was there trackside to take it all in.
