Jean Bobet of France originally, was an English teacher and that is what he studied in University and an Anglophile and he even taught in Scotland but his brother being one of the premiere racers of the day compelled Jean to go and join him. I believe the author refers to he and his brother as a couple of "ploucs" which seems a little bit like "blokes" and the Britanny region of France was their home. If cycling has anything like an age of innocence, this might be close to describing it.
This book likewise, treats who were the big four of racing back after World War II, those being Fausto Coppi, Jean's brother Louison Bobet and the Swiss riders of Kubler and Kobet, these were racers who dominated for a time along with the very able Van Steenbergen who may not have won the Tours and Giros but was up there. Others appear as well, Anquetil towards the end of Bobet's career, Bartali at the beginning.
Practically all of the major races of today are mentioned in the book, Paris-Roubaix, Wallonia/Liege in Belgium, World Championships and some races that are no longer in existence.
Certainly, this is a different kind of cycling book from other first hand accounts that often seem to reflect the hyperness and frenzy of racing in the Peloton.Read more ›
If you are amazed and excited about today's racing stars, you will appreciate the greats of a byegone era.
