Synopsis

Le Tour 100 The Definitive History of the World's Greatest by Peter Cossins, Bernard Hinault

Le Tour 100 is a unique and stunning visual reference to the world's greatest race. With 100 computer-generated artworks detailing the routes of the greatest stages, it relates the most dramatic moments with an exhaustively researched array of facts, figures and stories to give the reader the ultimate Tour de France book. Published to celebrate the 100th race, the 100 seminal moments of the Tour have been chosen by the panel of authors and each has been given its double-page spread showing the route, the story of the stages, the topography, pictures from the race, statistics and features. A complete gazetteer section details every route the tour took and the winners of all the jerseys, while a front section profiles the key characters that were instrumental in the Tour's story. With a combination of stunning visuals, detailed facts and gripping stories, Le Tour 100 is a celebration of the Tour De France and 110 years of racing. No other book tells the history in such a unique and beautiful way.

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again

Thanks to Lovereading I have discovered new writers and read books I would never had looked twice at - and enjoyed them.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
