Inhaltsangabe: A brand new volume of The Cycling Anthology, a collection of the best writing on cycling by some of the sport's leading writers.
Professional cycling is a rich, dynamic and often controversial sport that lends itself to great writing. Some of the most famous and illustrious races were founded by newspapermen and The Cycling Anthology continues this tradition by bringing together the best in the business.
Featuring essays from top writers and cyclists, such as William Fotheringham, Ned Boulting, David Millar, Richard Moore, Jeremy Whittle, Daniel Friebe and many more, it covers the sport from every angle. Never shying away from controversy, past volumes have dissected the effect of Lance Armstrong's confession on Team Sky; given us the lowdown on what it's really like riding as the Tour de France as a domestique; unflinchingly looked at retirement and career lows; discovered how the sport came into British homes and hearts through pioneering television moguels; and looked at legends and fascinating unknown characters alike.
Between them, these writers have covered hundreds of Tours de France and written dozens of excellent books and some have even ridden the Tour. Here, their work is showcased together.
