Tour Fever explains the world's greatest sporting event so well that the neophyte spectator can keep up with the Tour veteran, possibly teaching that person several things along the way.

Here's what wrote of the first edition: "A superb companion to the world's greatest race, Tour Fever breaks down the race's history, terminology, and traditions in a smart yet easy-to-use guide that offers something to both the brand-new enthusiast and the experienced racer. If you're planning to tune into the Tour's final days--and c'mon, dude, you should!--it's the perfect companion on the couch. I'm sharing mine with the guys in the office--not so they'll stop mocking me, but to show them that sports in July is more exciting than Astros at Padres."

In this Second Edition, updated for the 2017 Tour, you get more of everything. The Tour is more than a bike ride around France, it's more than the world's toughest bike race, it's a full-course meal bringing everything that racing and life have to offer.
