About

2013 sees the 100th edition of what most people consider the greatest bike race on earth – the Tour de France.

This is my homage to the men who made it happen and my attempt to tell some of the tales you may never have heard – of courage, daring, idiocy – and to look at the way a whole sport was created – the sport of professional stage racing.

Through anecdotes, images and other flotsam and jetsam that has sifted down over the years – with some personal recollections thrown in for good measure – I’ll attempt to look at the tales that are rarely told, or oft told tales with a new eye.

I’m hoping to expand 100 Tours 100 Tales into an ebook so keep checking for details on the publication date.
