Exert from the book

I think I'm going to have to buy this book, then after I've read it pass it onto my non-cycling friends.

"Though described by many as a rolling chess game, I'd say a bike race is more link a chess game, a boxing match, and a stampede disguised as a sport, encompassed by a life-style, and surrounded by a community on a never-ending road trip to the brink of bankruptcy"

I would aslo recommend "The Rider" - Tim Krabbe.
