5.0 out of 5 stars Magnifique!, 16 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sex, Lies and Handlebar Tape: The Remarkable Life of Jacques Anquetil, the First Five-Times Winner of the Tour de France (Paperback)
This has the added spice of an extraordinary private life. I would now rate Jacques along with Eddie Merckx, as the contenders for greatest cyclist ever. I had obviously heard of him but had no conception of the number of races he won, and the way he dominated some of them. In addition he was using equipment that would seem outdated now, but still produced amazing average speeds and set world records.

If you buy just one cycling book then I cannot recommend this one highly enough.
