Maglia Rosa Signed
Over 312 pages, Sykes takes the reader on an inspiring, magical journey. In so doing he evokes 100 years of the race for the maglia rosa, the mythical pink jersey of the race leader. In addition the book contains over 100 stunning photographs, a century of Italy’s great sporting festival captured on film.
The work uncovers the myths and legends of Italy’s very own grand tour, first run off in 1909. Legends like Coppi, Bartali, Merckx, Gimondi and Moser are featured, but so too are the likes of Brunero and Guerra, Valetti and Zilioli, icons of the Giro whose stories have never been told in English.
have had just 20 copies of Herbie’s beautiful book signed by the great Eddy Merckx, three-time runner-up Italo Zilioli and the author - a very special edition. Blink and you'll miss them.
