This exciting view of cycling’s great race covers every aspect of the grueling three-week event, with maps, stage reports, and intimate profiles of the top riders — including George Hincapie, Floyd Landis, and Levi Leipheimer — in the peloton. Graham Watson’s vivid photographs bring the action up close. More than an annual overview, this book conveys the spirit of the Tour through engaging stories of ambition and courage that pave the road to the Tour and the collision of dedication and fate that await 21 teams and 189 of the sport's greatest athletes.
