Product description

Review

A rattling good ride through the highlights of each race...a brisk solo breakaway through a history littered with bad behaviour… hugely entertaining - Independent

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

The Tour de France is probably cruel and it's undoubtedly unusual, but it also makes for an exceptionally good story. After 104 years and 94 laps of the France (time out only for World Wars), the fine spectacle of life-threatening exertion, bare-faced cheating, road-side sabotage, ludicrous clothing, extreme intimate discomfort, and grown men at the absolute end of their tethers has gathered the race an audience of millions. With the Tour taking to London's streets, Blazing Saddles takes a no-holds-barred look at its history - the rivalries and controversies, the blind passions and filthy suspicions, the wheeling and the dealing Embellished with over 100 classic images, Matt Rendell's vivid and entertaining history plunges deep into the peloton, combining the Tour's golden legends with tales from its dark side to capture the indomitable, inimitable spirit of the world's greatest race.
