About the Author
Richard Moore is a critically acclaimed and best-selling author who specialises in writing about cycling. His first book for HarperSport, In Search of Robert Millar, won Best Biography at the 2008 British Sports Book Awards. His Heroes, Villains and Velodromes was a bestseller for HarperSport in 2008, and in 2009 he ghosted Chris Hoy's autobiography. He is also the author of the Sunday Times best-seller, Sky’s the Limit, which went behind the scenes to reveal the success at Team Sky, as well as Slaying the Badger, the story of the 1986 Tour de France, and The Dirtiest Race in History, which was long-listed for the William Hill Sports Book of the Year.

This book is a collection of short stories - each story being focused on a particular stage of the Tour de France.
What really makes it though is the care that is taken to give the context to the reader - so while each chapter is nominally about one stage, it tells the story of that tour, or that riders career, adding a lot of depth to what might seem a shallow concept.
Best book I've read all year.
Loved the fact that the author gave real depth to each chapter by telling you what happened to the characters after their careers finished.
A really brilliant read and a must for anyone who enjoys cycling.
A really great read and Richard’s enthusiasm and affection for the sport comes shines through as usual. A true delight not only for cycling fans, but anyone who loves sport.
