The Story of the World's Most Beautiful Bike Race

Colin O'Brien
AUD $24.99

The full, rich story of the legendary Giro d'Italia, published to celebrate its 100th edition.

The story of the Giro d'Italia - Italy's equivalent of the Tour de France, and its superior in the eyes of many - is as dramatic and full of extraordinary characters as the story of Italy itself. Heroism, suffering, feuds and betrayals, tradition under threat from modernity all play out against a timeless landscape. The iconic riders, mythical stories and career defining exploits are conveyed in rich, vibrant prose.
