100 years, 100 contributors

Rapha is delighted to present an exclusive special edition of THE GIRO 100, 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.

This special edition boasts a bespoke cover and case and signed insert, with only 100 available available for purchase. It has been hand numbered and signed by the author and by fifteen of the book’s key contributors - including: Elke Weylandt, Gianni Motta, Fausto Bertoglio, George Mount, Gianbattista Baronchelli, Carmine Castellano, Aldo Gios, Davide Boifava and Paolo Salvoldelli.

GIRO100 is published by Rapha Editions.

Rated 5 de 5 de par phemomenal the stories in this book are nothing short of amazing. if you're a fan of the giro and all the history that comes with it, you'll love this book. and if you can manage it, opt for the edition featuring the actual signatures of some of the men whose stories appear in the book. it's quite touching so see each man's name handwritten on the fly sheet, and makes the experience of reading their tales all the fuller.

Rated 5 de 5 de par Wonderful, immersive read! I bought the limited edition as a bit of an early birthday present for myself and have not been disappointed! Could I have saved a few dollars and bought the regular edition? Yes. Would the stories have been the same? Yes. Would it be any less special? Maybe. I have number 71 of 100 which makes a collection of very unique and special stories about one of the greatest races even more special. While these are limited, treat yourself while you can.
