Bobke II: The Continuing Misadventures of Bob Roll (Paperback)Bob Roll (author)
- Not available
Bob Roll former Tour de France racer, well-known scribe, and race announcer is back to cause a ruckus! "Bobke II" (correctly pronounced BOOB-kuh ) revisits all of the original journals of Roll s wild rides and crazy tales about cycling s uncensored side.
When Bobke retired from competition, his pen continued the crazed poetic commentary, and Roll s newest additions cover both topics held reverent in cycling and also those that are hardly related to the sport. Bobke tips his cap to the classic riders and races, takes us on a grueling week of training with Lance Armstrong, tells the sport as he sees it, and entertains us with plenty of ditties and rants in between. It s a zany, often absurd, yet compelling commotion."

Bob Roll is the consummate team player and one of the most gentlemanly riders that I know of in the peloton. He has suffered through countless races helping riders such as Andy Hampsten win the Giro with nary a whimper about little exposure he gained for his toils. He follow the code of respect that the European profis demanded of their peers. Bob was always there when you needed him but never in the way! The consummate professional. Alex Stieda, former 7-Eleven teammate of Bob Roll"
