Waterstones Says

A fitting tribute to the 100th anniversary of the most iconic garment in professional cycling, Cossins’ authoritative text complements the sumptuous photography and production values of this exquisite volume. Reinvigorating the history of the Tour de France, The Yellow Jersey is a must for all fans of the peloton.

In 2019, the cycling world will celebrate the 100th anniversary of sport's most iconic and distinguished prize: the Yellow Jersey.

Beautifully produced and packed full of interviews with riders such as Chris Froome, Thomas Voeckler and the oldest living wearer of the Yellow Jersey at 94, Antonin Rolland, The Yellow Jersey is a fitting celebration of the 'maillot jaune'.

In 1919 the leading rider was first instructed to wear the Yellow Jersey, following a campaign from fans and journalists who were struggling to to identify the winning rider. 100 years on, the jersey has passed into almost sacred status.

You'll never see an amateur rider wearing yellow - it is reserved purely for those who have sacrificed themselves in the world's greatest race.

Cossins will take the reader on a journey to the origins of the jersey and its early winners. He'll explore the effect of wearing yellow as a motivator and occasionally as a curse. Beautifully produced with original photography, The Yellow Jersey is an exquisite tribute to the greatest trophy in sport.
