Thrilling reading... cleanly written, meticulously researched... This book unearths a fascinating national sporting history.
Times Literary Supplement.
In turns funny, reflective and passionate, Kings of the Mountains is part cycling history, part travelogue and part social analysis... Essential reading.
Official Guide to the Tour de France.
A fascinating work of admirable scope and depth.
Some story, worthy of the magical realism of Gabriel García Márques or Mario Vargas Llosa in its intricate layering of sport, social history and the vagaries of human nature.
Matt Rendell was voted New Sports Writer 2003 by the National Sporting Club for "Kings of the Mountains."
The author's knowledge of professional cycling in general, and Colombian cycling in particular, is truly awesome. Possibly a niche-read (it is, after all, focused on Colombian cycling heroes little-known to English-speakers), but one that should appeal to fans of the more exotic aspects of professional cycling's colorful history.
