In any event, I thought it was okay but certainly not as fascinating as that of McConnon's 'Road To Valor', the story of Italian cyclist Gino Bartali.
Now write one about Bartali!!
While Fausto Coppi is the main focus (naturally), there are also excellent insights about Bartali, Magni, brother Serse Coppi, faithful gregario Carea, wife Bruna and, of course, Giulia, the infamous White Lady. Absolutely worth reading if you are at all interested in Coppi or in pro racing in the 1940s and 1950s.
