Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

To celebrate the 100th Tour de France anniversary in 2003, weve fully updated and reissued Tour de France/Tour de Force in paperback. Arranged chronologically and illustrated with hundreds of photographs dating back to the first race in 1903, Tour de France/Tour de Force offers a one-of-a-kind look at the Tours history. Tour insider James Startt shares stories of ingenuity (when Francois Fabers chain broke in the last kilometer of the 1909 Tour, he simply ran his bike across the finish line), tragedy (Tom Simpson collapsing and dying on the climb up Mont Ventoux in 1967), and triumph (Lance Armstrongs first of four consecutive victories after his battle with cancervictories that created a huge upsurge of interest in the sport). With an introduction by three-time Tour winner Greg LeMond, Tour de France/Tour de Force is the perfect way for fans everywhere to revel in the greatest bike race on earth.
