The Rider

£9.00

Tim Krabbé

First published in 1978, Tim Krabbe's The Rider is the quintessential cycling novel. Recording the events of a single day of racing, the book's narrative conveys the ecstasy and pain experienced by one rider in the fictional Tour de Mont Aigoual, alternating between strategic analysis, psychological insight and near-surreal passages. More than thirty years after its publication, The Rider is still unequalled in sports literature.
