It's given me a new understanding of the sport and I feel even more so, a fan of pro cycling.
It's such a cheap buy but well written & covers everything from the few French who started the race, why the jerseys are yellow/polka dot etc, doping, the greats of the sport and where the sport is today.
Written before Wiggins did our country proud by securing the 2012 GC jersey. Anyone interested in the great sport of pro-cycling, buy it, you won't be disappointed...!
