The Cycling Anthology: Volume One : Volume 1 Paperback
Edited by Lionel Birnie, Ellis Bacon
Professional cycling is a rich, dynamic and often controversial sport that lends itself to great writing.
Some of the most famous and illustrious races were founded by newspapermen and The Cycling Anthology continues this tradition by bringing together the best in the business.
Volume One features original and exclusive pieces by leading cycling writers.
William Fotheringham disects Bradley Wiggins' transformation from track superstar to becoming the first Briton to win the Tour de France; David Millar discusses retirement and dark secrets as his friends' careers start to fade; Daniel Friebe uncovers the fascinating role statistics has to play in cycling; Jeremy Whittle follows Team Sky to assess the Lance Armstrong's legacy to the sport; and many more.
Between them, they've covered hundreds of Tours de France and written dozens of excellent books and some have even ridden the Tour.
Now, their work is showcased together for the first time.
