About the book
A novel about all the things that really matter in life—set against the backdrop of the Tour de France and the world of professional bicycle racing, when veteran bicycle racer Terry Davenport carries out his plan for his last appearance in the Tour…
Admittedly 'The Yellow Jersey' has been sitting on my 'to read' shelf in 3 different apartments, something about the title and the cover just keep putting me off - now is the time to dive on in. Hopefully I'll be able to share more about the sequel soon too.
Speaking of cycling lit though I just finished both of Joe Parkin's books, 'Dog in a Hat' and 'Come and Gone'. Very quick reads, great balance of racing description and the day to day business of being a full time racer, interesting comparison between European and American racing which I can honestly say I have experienced myself, ie fistfights whilst racing in a bunch around Prospect Park in Brooklyn, crazy.
Ofcourse I will eat my styrofoam filled helmet the day I see a driver either:
a) prosecuted for such a crime or
b) a driver who will even know that this is a crime.
