9780224092104: Roule Britannia: Great Britain and the Tour de France (Yellow Jersey Cycling Classics)

Fully revised and updated, Roule Britannia celebrates the 20th anniversary of a Briton first completing the Tour de France, the half-century of cultural exchange, and British cycling's fight for recognition that followed. During those 50years only two Tours would take place without at least one Briton on the start line, and more than 50 British cyclists have taken part. Through exclusive interviews with and profiles of all those who have competed, William Fotheringham gives us the definitive record of their achievement, from those first stumbling efforts and the death of Tom Simpson, to the golden era of Sean Yates and Robert Millar, right up to Chris Boardman, David Millar and the present day, when the issue of banned drug use has clouded the great race.
