The Long Season: One Year of Bicycle Road Racing in California
Synopses & Reviews
This beautifully written memoir is sure to appeal to all cyclists. It contains some of the best writing on competitive cycling—from the cyclist’s viewpoint—ever published.
Bruno Schull enters the California amateur racing circuit, and in the course of one long season climbs from the lowest ranking to near the top. Like the film Breaking Away, this is the story of an unknown cyclist striving for greatness. Bruno Schull’s story covers a dozen local races, paralleled by his fixation on the Tour de France on TV. He captures the spirit of cycling at its highest levels, and the more peculiar, unsung glories of amateur racing. Funny, smart, inspiring, elegant—and full of great cycling.
Breaking Away meets The Yellow Jersey.
