Overview

The former manager of Britain’s rock group, The Clash, casts an irreverent eye over the fast, extravagant spectacle that is Le Tour de France, as he takes fans “backstage” at the 2003/04 tours for an unorthodox account of the world’s greatest race. Catch the buzz as he mingles with press, roadies and trophy girls and penetrates the inner sanctum to chat with celebrities like Sheryl Crow and David Millar. Feel the rush and meet the heroes: today’s greats, Armstrong and Cipollini; yesteryear’s Merckx and Koblet; and tomorrow’s rising stars. No other book gets as close to the race or better uncovers the essence of the French love affair with Le Tour and what keeps the greatest race on the planet on track.
