Mountains: Epic Cycling Climbs, brings together a body of work by photographer Michael Blann into a luxury coffee table book.
Photographed over a period of 3 years the work charts the most famous European climbs within the history of cycling.
Using a high definition camera and often working from helicopters, the images demonstrate the beauty of these mountains, through all seasons and during the Grand Tours when the mountains and roads are transformed with the sights and sounds of millions of fans.
Under pinning the work are essays from leading current and former professional cyclists including Romain Bardet, Greg LeMond, Stephen Roche, Geraint Thomas, Lizzie Armitstead, Robert Millar, Andy Hampsten, Ivan Basso, plus more, who recount their personal recollections and memories from within the pro peloton.
