We celebrated the arrival of the Tour de France on British soil by looking at the three previous occasions the race has crossed the Channel, with three of this country’s finest protagonists: Barry Hoban on the disastrous ’74 visit to Plymouth; Chris Boardman smashing speed records in ’94; and Geraint Thomas, the youngest rider in the ’07 edition when millions of spectators packed the roadsides of London and Kent.
Also in this special Tour issue: Pedro Delgado tells us how he won in ’88; Laurens ten Dam opens his heart, and publishes the findings; Dustin Hoffman and the Tour film that never was; Carbon gurus Zipp and how they developed a pavé-proof wheel; Ottavio Bottecchia, two-time Tour winner with a tragic ending; Dave Akam, Moser’s British bruiser of a right-hand man; and captivating diaries of a Yorkshire club cyclist and his rides with the Cappuccino Cycling Club.
Plus columns from Robert Millar, Matt Seaton, Johnny Green and Duncan Forbes.
