Tour de France

£12.00

Graeme Fife

Graeme Fife's Tour de France tells tales of great solo rides, amazing fortitude, terrible misfortune and triumph over the odds from the race's remarkable history, which began in July 1903. Within a few years, the Tour was taking the riders across the mountains of the Alps and Pyrenees, and they had to carry out their own repairs, find their own food and drink, and ride without support - a far cry from today's sophisticated organisation.

Combining meticulous research with a pacey narrative style, Fife paints a colourful and memorable picture of the men whose exploits have given the Tour an enduring universal appeal. Named as one of the top five sports books of 2008 by both The Independent and The Times.
