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 di 5 di da Great anecdotes, great characters. Mainly bought this a filler, to get over the "free shipping limit", and really glad I did. I still have some Tappa´s to do, but this far it has been excellent read. Lots of amazing stories, incidents etc. Good job.

Rated 5 di 5 di da The 'Real' Giro by the people who were there This stunning book takes the reader behind the scenes to hear 100 fascinating tales of the real people who make the giro d'Italia the legendary race it is. Real stories from journalists, photographers, course architects, volunteers, winners, losers and fans. Great never heard stories that take you under the skin of the greatest bike race on earth

Rated 5 di 5 di da Excellent book Bought for a friend. This book is not an encyclopedia of the Giro and looks at the race and history from the common people's point of view.

Rated 5 di 5 di da A wonderful companion to the Giro itself! Herbie Sykes put together a great compilation of stories from ALL the characters of the GIRO-- from those in the race, to those in the team car, to those working on the bikes, to those mapping out the race itself and the tifosi themselves. Each 'tappa' is a short story that tells the tale. Big kudos to the Cycling Podcast-Kilometer 0 for highlighting portions from the book! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Rated 5 di 5 di da Herbie Sykes "Giro 100" Italian neorealism is often mentioned in the book and in text and design it comes as close to it as you probably can when (almost) strictly relying upon facts. Never gets tawdry though. One of the nicest books about professional cycling I could think of.
