Meet the Author

Serge Laget was eight years old when, on vacation in the South of France, he watched the Tour de France go by. He was hooked and has followed the Tour ever since, covering it as a journalist for L'Equipe since 1987. He has written many books on cycling, including Le Cyclisme, La Saga du Tour de France, and La Belle Epoque du Cyclisme. He lives in Paris.

Luke Edwardes-Evans is a freelance sports writer who regularly contributes articles to Cycling Weekly magazine and is the author of two Tour de France guides. He lives in the south of England, and had the rare pleasure of watching the 2007 Tour go within a few miles of his home.
