Slaying The Badger

£13.00

Richard Moore

Heroes and villains, spectacle and controversy, mind games and endurance - this is the 1986 Tour de France.

Greg LeMond, 'L'Americain': fresh-faced, prodigious newcomer. This is supposed to be his year.

Bernard Hinault, 'The Badger': aggressive, headstrong, five-time winner of the Tour. He has pledged his unwavering support to his team mate, LeMond.

The team is everything in cycling, so the world watches, stunned, as LeMond and Hinault's explosive rivalry plays out over three high-octane weeks. Slaying the Badger relives the adrenaline and agony as LeMond battles to become the first American to win the Tour, with the Badger relentlessly on the attack.
