Don’t neglect to examine the “NEWSWIRE” part, you will discover it on the homepage, simply above the PEZ Store part. The bits of reports that missed the EuroTrash deadline are in there, plus any information as-it-happens might be added there too.

Any feedback drop me a line, e mail tackle: [email protected] or Twitter. And examine the PezCyclingNews Twitter and Fb Web page. And say hello on Zwift while you cross me.
