Customer Review

on 12 June 2013
This account of a bike race in the 1970's puts you inside the mind of the author/competitor for the entire duration of the race. Tim Krabbe is also a chess Grandmaster, and there are many allusions to the similarities between chess and cycle racing strategies and psychology. I believe this story to be unique in its central focus on one view of one event, with many wider references to the world of competitive cycling. This is narrative at its compelling best. You will love it even if you have no interest in cycling. If you do have an interest, you quite simply HAVE to read this book!
