Product description

Review

'A fascinating insight into a charismatic, temperamental star of the sport'

(SPORT)

'A terrific tale... Accounts of cycle racing’s early years invariably contain suffering on a scale unimaginable to the modern professional, but post-Civil War Spain was another level altogether. The maverick climber comes across as a man difficult to like but, once you know the background, impossible not to admire'

(Rouleur)

'Fotheringham writes beautifully... His book is packed with stories of doping, disputes, dodgy deals and heroic rides, and it depicts a world which is light years away from the highly controlled sport cycling has become'

(Times Literary Supplement)

'Splendid … Fotheringham’s got the real story behind the myth'

 

(Cycle Sport, Christmas Reading List)
