100 years, 100 contributors

THE GIRO 100 is a unique – and uniquely personal – evocation of the race for pink. In realising it, award-winning author Herbie Sykes undertook his own Tour of Italy, meeting with one hundred of the race’s constituents. They are the champions and gregari, the superstars and the nearly-men, their wives, lovers and tifosi. Then there are the kingmakers and journalists, the sponsors and officials, those who have loved the race and a few who abhorred it. Together their testimonies represent a journey to the heart of the spectacle, but this is a journey with a difference. In a departure from cycling convention, they were invited to open their scrapbooks, family albums and cupboard drawers. There are no sweeping views of the Dolomites, no cliché portraits of Coppi, Merckx or Pantani, no anodyne agency fodder. Instead the photography conjures the spirit, pathos and beauty of the greatest show on earth. And, more poignantly, it speaks of the lives conditioned by it.

GIRO 100 is published by Rapha Editions.

Rated 5 von 5 von aus Buy this! Not sure any other English language author knows more about Italian cycling than Herbie Sykes - much like Maglia Rosa a few years back this book also does not fail to deliver...great stories of some of the lesser characters throughout Giro history...buy it, you will not be disappointed!

Rated 5 von 5 von aus Not your typical cycling history book Really enjoyed this book and its contributions from such a wide range of people connected to the Giro, not just the riders and teams who won the GC and stages. Loved the sections about the people who never quite made it or who felt that there were some underhand goings-on behind the scenes which restricted their chances of success. The use of the interviewees' own photographs and other souvenirs also brought to life each of the individual stories.

Rated 5 von 5 von aus Lovely book with plenty of Giro history Looking towards the first grand tour of the year, this book brings together lots of interesting stories from the Giro's participants over the last 100 years. Highly recommended and well presented, easy to dip in and out of.
