Roule Britannia


William Fotheringham

More than fifty years ago, ten Britons embarked on an adventure: they were part of the first British team to take part in the Tour de France. Only two of them would go on to finish the race, but they were the first of many - and many great ones - to come. William Fotheringham has endeavoured to write a history of those men and the ones that followed, and the result is Roule Britannia - a book that takes the reader on a journey through the life and times of some of the greatest British riders to grace the roads of the continent with their presence and panache.
