A cycling classic republished in elegant new hardback

Philippe Brunel’s painstakingly assembled anthology of tales and photography quickly became a touchstone for fans of road racing, capturing the ethos and aesthetic of decades of the sport. It is a book born of days in the archives and from countless hours of interviews, making it an indispensible companion for anyone drawn in by the golden age of professional cycling.

After spending many years out of print, Kings of Pain: Masters and Convicts of the Road has been republished by Rapha, featuring re-scanned, duotone photography on Fedrigoni paperstock, bound in high-quality Buckram. From Fausto Coppi in his pyjamas to Bernard Hinault sulking on the train, Kings of Pain consists of some of the peloton’s most compelling stories and images.

Be they brave, fragile, or a touch crazy, this book celebrates the riders as human beings and I can’t think of a more important or fitting tribute to the sport.
From Simon Mottram’s foreword to Kings of Pain
