Product Description

Review

"Moore entertainingly unravels the complexities of the relationships within the peloton during a three-week stage race, the sort of battle in which alliances can shift from one mountain peak to another and your enemy's enemy can suddenly become your most valued friend" (Richard Williams Guardian)

"From the opening pages this is a book that grips. Combining great insight, interviews and anecdotes with wonderfully vivid writing, it is thoroughly researched and well written. Like the event itself, the book is so engrossing, you don't want it to end" (Scotland on Sunday)

"As a matter of some urgency, arm yourself first with Slaying the Badger by Richard Moore and immerse yourself in the epic story of the 1986 Tour and the two greatest riders of their era. ... The race and the book builds towards a gripping page turning climax which you don't want to end" (Bredan Gallagher Daily Telegraph)

"A gripping narrative of this psychological and physical three-week war... It is good to be reminded that the race used to have twice-a-day stages, that helmets didn't always obscure the riders and that technology once had little place in the Tour" (Wall Street Journal)

"Captivating... Slaying the Badger is a mixture of clear-eyed journalistic analysis and unashamed nostalgia" (Times Literary Supplement)

Brilliant record of 1986 TDF & in fighting . Hinault wanting his 6th. Tour ( No EPO then ) & determined LeMond would not be first American. As it happened, the previous year 1985 was last time a Frencman won their own Tour . !
