5.0 out of 5 stars A whistlestop tour of the Tour, 11 Dec 2007
This review is from: Blazing Saddles: The Cruel and Unusual History of the Tour De France (Hardcover)
Matt Rendell changes gear after the excellent DEATH OF MARCO PANTANI for something a little lighter. No real exposés here, rather a slightly sideways celebration of the Tour de France's convoluted history. Doesn't shy away from the race's darker side - which, as the author concludes, is source for much of the Tour's legend - but does it with humour and insight. Nice to see that some care has been taken over the design and production, with a good selection of vintage photographs and contemporary quotes accompanying each entry. Funny and thought-provoking - a good introduction to the World's Toughest Race.
