    Bird On The Wire

Featuring the signatures of the author and Sir Bradley Wiggins, who wrote the foreword, the book is encased in a Rapha Editions slipcase and beautiful silk screen-printed cloth cover. The books are also numbered individually from 1 to 100.

    Tom Simpson is British cycling's greatest icon. Fifty years after he conquered the continental sporting scene, he still captivates people around the world. After his dramatic death on Mont Ventoux during the 1967 Tour de France, amphetamines and alcohol were found in his system, a fact which often dwarfs his pioneering achievements. From a humble upbringing in a Nottinghamshire mining town, Simpson became the first Briton to win the elite men's World Championships and to wear the Tour de France's yellow jersey. He also took victory at Milan Sanremo, the Tour of Flanders and the Tour of Lombardy, three of cycling's most prestigious races. A charismatic and impulsive character, Simpson lived fast, with a penchant for spectacular racing, sports cars and fanciful dreams. A man of contradictions, he was both people's champion and pariah, a gentleman and a rogue. Guided by rare photography of Simpson, this book by Andy McGrath explores the Briton's feats and complexities through untold stories from those closest to him.

    Jan Janssen, Raymond Poulidor, Gianni Motta, Barry Hoban, Emile Daems, Brian Robinson, Vin Denson, Helen Hoban, Joanne Simpson, Henri Duez, Charly Wegelius, Dave Bonner, Billy Holmes, Keith Butler, Pete Ryalls and Professor Greg Whyte OBE.

    Andy McGrath is the managing editor of Rouleur Magazine, having previously worked at Cycling Weekly and Cycle Sport, he has also written on cycling for The Guardian and Financial Times. He is the co-author of Official Treasures of the Tour de France and has contributed chapters to several volumes of The Cycling Anthology.
