The Tour de France Official 100th Race Anniversary Edition is the essential guide to the world's biggest annual sporting event. Compiled by a quartet of France's most renowned cycling historians, it features authoritative commentary on each of the Tour's 100 editions, starting with its inaugural race back in 1903. Showcased here are the Tour's biggest names, greatest battles and legendary figures, such as 1903 winner Maurice Garin, five-time champions Jacques Anquetil, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinsault and Miguel Indurain, as well as Britain's first Tour champion, Sir Bradley Wiggins. This book also reflects on the tragedies and scandals of professional cycling's most prized event, including the spectacular rise and very public fall of Lance Armstrong. The insightful narrative is complemented throughout by over 250 stunning photographs - many of which are previously unpublished, drawn from renowned Tour historian Serge Laget's personal collection of races, riders, memorabilia and ephemera. This special volume also features comprehensive statistics and information on every race, including a detailed route map, the Tour's stage-winners, the top 10 finishers and the jersey champions. A stunning celebration of cycling's most prestigious, picturesque and popular event, the Tour de France Official 100th Race Anniversary Edition is the essential guide to the unique event that is the Tour de France.
