Volume Two (2/5)
Volume Two of The Cycling Anthology, a collection of the best writing on cycling by some of the sport's leading writers. A Tour de France special edition including essays by William Fotheringham, Daniel Friebe, Ned Boulting and Jeremy Whittle.
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 Two is a Tour de France special edition and features original and exclusive pieces by leading cycling writers. ITV reporter Ned Boulting looks at how the Tour made it to our living rooms and into our hearts; pro rider Daniel Lloyd lifts the lid on actually riding a Tour in 'A Domestique's Tale'; Jeremy Whittle examines why, despite drug scandal and infamy, the Tour still intoxicates us; 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. Here, their work is showcased together.
“Professional pro cycling journalism for grown ups. These are the kind of stories that you may have wondered at, but don’t often get to see in this detail”
“A pleasure to read … packed with a variety of subject and rich prose”
