This book is great. To borrow a phrase, it chronicles an era when bikes were steel, and so were the riders. (I'm ignoring that Kelly may have ridden an alloy frame in the later years). This book describes a race and racing that would be unfamiliar to current fans of the sport. Kelly (and his peers) made a fraction of today's salaries, so winning a race made a big difference; and his commitment to winning resulted in a career with few parallels.
It's hard to find copies, and very much worth the effort, if you love cycling.
