A good read.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tomorrow, We Ride (Paperback)
Remembering Jean Bobet as an occasional contributor to the "Sporting Cyclist" magazine back in the 1960s, I eagerly awaited the delivery of this book.
I wasn't disapointed, although in essence a cycling autobiography of Jean Bobet, the intertwining with his more famous brother Louison is inevitable. This gives a very unique insight into life in the profesional peleton in the 1950s.
My only slight criticism is that in places the translation to English is a bit clumsy, and you can only wonder why Jean who was a confirmed Anglophile as well as studying at Aberdeen University didnt undertake the task of translation himself. That is though a very minor criticism of what is an excellent outstanding read.
