The true grinders of the world in one book,
This review is from: Mountain Kings: Agony and Euphoria on the Peaks of the Tour De France (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A fantastic book that will appeal to new fans of the Tour de France looking to learn a bit more about the cycling greats, and a brilliant tome for reminiscing on past masters who've been tour fans for a while.
Nicely written and containing some iconic images (many of which convey the pain these guys went through) this book also lists the great climbs of the tour, from the saddle.
Armchair enthusiasts and amateur cyclists will both enjoy this book.
