This book draws upon the Magnum archive to present a celebration of the great photographers who have captured those most fugitive of moments in cycling: the personalities, emotions and human endurance.
It is grouped into thematic chapters, with works by a range of photographers, showing carefully picture-edited images with discursive captions.
Each chapter also features one 'story' of an iconic moment, event or scene captured by a single photographer.
They explore themes such as the Tour de France, track racing in the velodrome, winter training and the revelry of the fans and crowds, with images by a variety of iconic photographers, including Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Guy Le Querrec and Harry Gruyaert.
