£9.00

Ned Boulting

"Paris, 4 July 2003: My first Tour de France. I had never seen a bike race. I had only vaguely heard of Lance Armstrong. I had no idea what I was doing there. Yet, that day I was broadcasting live on television. I fumbled my way through a few platitudes, before summing up with the words, Dave Millar just missing out on the Yellow Jumper. Yes, the Yellow Jumper."
