Cycling's Great Climbers and the Great Climbs
Bill McGann "Author of The Story of the Tour de France"
Uphill Battle: Cycling's Great Climbers
"Owen Mulholland's book tells the stories of the great climbers from Rene Pottier, who won the Tour de France in 1906, to Lance Armstrong."
In Search of Robert Millar: Unravelling the Mystery Surrounding Britain's Most Successful Tour De France Cyclist
"The story of the man who was the 1984 Tour de France King of the Mountains is a strange one. Millar is the only super-climber Britain ever produced."
Sex, Lies and Handlebar Tape: The Remarkable Life of Jacques Anquetil, the First Five-Times Winner of the Tour de France
"Jacques Anquetil's climbing prowess was always underestimated because he never worked harder than he had to in the mountains. He saved his energy for the time trials where he was almost unbeatable."
Fallen Angel: The Passion of Fausto Coppi
"Coppi was certainly the most talented rider since Philippe Thys and perhaps the greatest ever."
The Tour is Won on the Alpe: Alpe D'Huez and the Classic Battles of the Tour De France (Photography)
"L'Alpe d'Huez is the Tour's signature climb."
The Eagle of the Canavese: Franco Balmamion and the Giro d'Italia
"The Dolomites put all Giro contenders to an especially severe test. Balmamion won the Giro twice."
The Death of Marco Pantani: A Biography
"Marco Pantani was the last pure climber who could truly terrorize the other racers with his ability to detonate a race by vanishing up a mountain road."
Ascent: The Mountains of the Tour De France
"Amazon's American reviewers were far kinder to this book than British reviewers."
It's Not About The Bike: My Journey Back to Life
"Armstrong had most of his Tours won at the end of each edition's first hilltop finish."
The Story of the Tour de France Volume 1: 1903-1964
"Ever since Tour de France founder Henri Desgrange added the high mountain passes of the Pyrenees to the Tour, cycling fans have been fascinated by the men who sprout wings when the road goes up."
The Story of the Tour de France, Volume 2: 1965-2007: How a Newspaper Promotion Became the Greatest Sporting Event in the World
"This volume concludes my telling of the history of the Tour de France. The final 10 years get a specially detailed examination."
Eddy Merckx: The Greatest Cyclist of the 20th Century
"Any list of great climbers must include Merckx."
