In July 1903 a group of cyclists left Paris at the start of an epic country-wide race. The first Tour de France took the riders across the high mountains of the Alps and Pyrenees, over roads little better than cart tracks. Travelling vast distances over day and night, the riders had to carry out their own repairs and find their own food and water. In the 1990s, by comparison, riders are pampered; the Tour de France organization caters to their every need. Yet the Tour continues to be the toughest of cycling competitions, with man and bike pitted against all kinds of terrain and weather, in unremitting competition for three weeks with their rivals. In this volume, tales of great solo rides, amazing fortitude and gallantry, misfortune and triumph over the odds emerge from the Tour de France's remarkable history. The riders who have ridden, lost and won the Tour are shown here to be a breed apart. This edition covers the 1999 race.
