Book Summary

There is something for all cycle racing fans in Tour de France Miscellany. The world's premier bike race dates back to the start of the last century and has developed a reputation for glamour, glitz and glory. For more than 110 years, the Tour de France has provided the sporting world with some truly historic moments, involving many of the greatest names in modern folklore. Within these pages, the reader will learn hundreds of fascinating facts about the sport on a wide range of topics, from riders and teams to mountain climbs and sprint finishes. As the items appear completely at random, it is not really a book to be read from cover to cover, more one to be dipped into and enjoyed in short breaks. Painstakingly researched by the master of the sporting factoid, Tour de France Miscellany will bring hours of reading pleasure to every sports fan.
