Tales of great solo rides, amazing fortitude and gallantry, misfortune and triumph over the odds emerge from the Tour de France's remarkable history; and the riders who have ridden the Tour, lost and won it to take the yellow jersey, the most coveted prize in cycling, are a breed apart. In Tour de France, Graeme Fife offers a compelling insight into the mystique of the race, the unique allure it has always exercised on devoted bike fans and occasional enthusiasts alike. Combining meticulous research with a pacey narrative style, Fife, a writer and a keen cyclist, paints a colourful, human, memorable picture of the men - champions and team men - whose exploits have made the Tour a durable fascination.
