Description - Ascent by Richard Yates

The mountains, that is where the greatest battles of the Tour de France are fought, where champions are made and where some of the toughest are defeated. It's where men like Christophe, Coppi, Bahamontes, Merckx, and Armstrong have shown their mettle. And it was where British cyclist Tommy Simpson died. This beautifully illustrated book looks at the scenic beauty of the mountain stages and at the men who have competed on them throughout the 100-year history of the Tour.
