[[ KINDLE ]] ✽ Wide-eyed and Legless: Inside the Tour De France (A Sportspages Book) Author Jeff Connor – Loans-2006.info
This book was written by a newspaper reporter who was given permission to travel with the team ANC Halford, the first British team to participate in the Tour de France There is a day to day summation of the day s events and current drama crisis, and a brief synopsis of each day s race This race was a first for all of the ANC riders, as well as for most of their sponsors and support crew A learning experience for all, the riders either found their niche or abandoned, and unfortunately the same was true for some members of the support staff and vehicles I don t know about this being the No 1 cycling book of all timeperhaps at the time it was written it was groundbreaking to experience a complete tour from the inside As I read through this, I found myself wanting a similar book written by someone who was an insider on a solid, experienced team on the tourwhere the majority of the riders were not in survival mode, the support team running like a well oiled machine, and to be present when strategy and solid tactics are discussed among accomplished riders That being said, I found this account of the British team s travails an entertaining and fast read Especially enjoyable were the tidbits of race culture such as the etiquette amongst the team cars as they jockeyed or literally fought for position behind the riders, slinging lagging rider Fascinating read, about first Brit team to do Tour de France They were so disorganised It is hard to reconcile that with both the approach and success record of Team Sky Connor was there as journalist and ended up being enlisted to help the team, as so many support crew bit the dust as did riders. Half narrative from an insider s perspective of the troubled ANC Halfords team and half race report of the 1987 Tour, this book is trapped between the two neither a gripping race commentary nor roller coaster emotional in Brought back great memories of the 1987 Tour Can t help but feel that the author held back the juicier details from behind the scenes at ANC Halfords Team staff drift in and out of the picture without much Bit disappointed with this probably because I already new the story of ANC s disastrous Tour de France campaign Not as funny as I had expected.

Although dated, interesting inside the ropes view if the Tour de France.
