Wonderfully written tragic story
on 13 August 2014
A tragic story brilliantly told about the death of (at that time) the greatest British cyclist who had ever raced. Tommy Simpson was a victim of drugs, the system that operated at the time and the regulations which were enforced (such as limiting the amount of water riders were allowed to have). A great companion to the death on the mountain film, this book examines Tommy in much greater detail and brings home the absolute tragedy of his death.
