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.
