This review is from: Bradley Wiggins: Tour de Force (Kindle Edition)
This is a journalistic look at the 2012 Tour de France and, specifically, the race as raced by Bradley Wiggins. It's a great read if you're a Wiggins fan and followed this year's Tour. Even better if you've been a fan for a while and have been following the Tour for a few years.
Each chapter describes one of the stages and is very evocative. The book is written in a journalistic style, but it works well to bring the race to life. At the end of each chapter is a section on Wiggin's life, gradually moving from his early years through to the 2012 Tour.
As a fan who has watched the Tour and followed Wiggins, Cavendish and Team Sky for several years this really hits the spot and deserved 5 stars. If you didn't watch the 2012 Tour it probably wouldn't be as compelling, but still a good read for anyone interested in cycling and a great sporting achievement.
