It's hard to keep track of the events that Ed Hood has attended - easier to count those he has missed. His first Worlds for PEZ was in Salzburg back in 2006, no team time trial in those days, but Ed was there for all the other road action, here is his stroll down memory lane.
Rider Interview: Alessandro De Marchi is one of those guys who has been quietly building up a fine palmarès and the admiration of the other professionals as a strong rider to have along-side you in a break. Our PEZman in Spain, Alastair Hamilton, managed to have a word with Alessandro at the CCC team early season training camp.
Down amongst the thousands of fans, family, team staff and just plain crazies in the Netherlands for the Worlds was our very own Ed Hood. It's time now to re-live the action, the sights, the smells & the music with him from the Elite Men's Road Race - Roadside!
It might have been a day off from racing today at the World Titles but our man Ed Hood on the roadside had no such luxuries. With interviews to conduct and a region to discover, Ed hit the ground running today with camera in hand. It's time for another installment of Valkenburg - Roadside!
A great day of racing at the Worlds saw Tony Martin double up his golds and Taylor Phinney doing the same with silver. To capture this historic day Ed Hood moved PEZ Mobile HQ almost onto the race circuit to bring us all the action. He isn't just reporting from the roadside this year - he's living there!
With the last 3 winners of the U/23 time trial going on to be big names in the WorldTour it was important that we got down to the finishline to chat with the future stars of our sport. There's no better man for that job than our roadside reporter, Ed Hood and Ed managed to talk to the winners and all the up and comers as they reflected on what was a very tough time trial.
With the result of the team time trial coming down to OmegaPharma's ability to smoothly ride up the Cauberg and BMC's ability to explode we thought it was time to take a closer look at this crucial part of the World's circuit. Our man on the scene, Ed Hood laced up the trainers and hit the road to examine this mythical climb.
