Compelling stories from the world's most famous bike race
on 5 June 2014
Readers of Richard Moore's previous books will find more to savour here in a selection of compelling stories capturing key stages from the Tour.
It's typically well researched and detailed; painting a rich picture of stages I'd not seen and providing a new slant on those I thought I remembered well. Moore has spoken to many of the key protagonists and the book is the richer for it - the passing of time seemingly giving riders greater perspective on what happened.
Interesting but most of all entertaining, it's a great read about a complex race and the fascinating characters within it.
