Review

A wonderful little book about a great man (Tim Krabbé, author of The Rider)

At last the coolest of champions gets the biography he deserves (Richard Williams)

If you don't know Fournel, then you're missing out, if you don't know Anquetil, then you don't know cycling. (David Millar)

An unconventional take on a fascinating character. This is not your standard cycling biography - and all the better for it. (Gary Imlach)

What a wonderful book Paul has written. It's is one of the most powerful cycling books I've ever read - certainly the best biography. (Michael Hutchinson)

Evokes the mysticism which surrounded Jacques beautifully (Herbie Sykes)

A magnificent book (Le Monde)

A beautiful story (Le Figaro)

A profound essay (Libération)

Praise for Vélo:
Joyous. Destined to become a classic

(Road.cc)

Book Description
