Having passed it over for purchase a few times when skimming through I finally bought this book and I'm glad I did To the best of my knowledge there have not been any other English language books covering this area of cycling and unlike say a book on the Tour de France this one introduced much that was new to me Many of the cyclists' names were familiar but this provided new detail and did it in an entertaining way Harry Pearson is passionate about his subject and writes well and with humour Highly recommended
