The Tour de France: The Good, the bad and the just plain weird

Paul Hansford


Take trip via The travel de France – from chequered beginnings to glory days of rivalries and derring-do, and directly to the courageous new post-Armstrong global. alongside the best way, meet the larger-than-life personalities that experience characterized the race all through its background, besides their maximum and lowest moments. Peopled via cheats and charmers, via mudslides and melees, requiring equivalent measures of power and sneakiness, the journey de France is the best express on wheels – and has been for over a century.

Complete with a convenient consultant to biking slang so that you don't crash-out midway via your Tour-watching, this can be a must-read for any professional rouleur or wet-behind-the-ears neo-pro. masking mythical battles within the mountains to sabotage within the peloton, heart-warming cooperation among opponents to drug-addled unintended deaths, no part of this storied race is going unexplored.
