Reviews

The Giro and Italy, Italy and the Giro: this book helps to explain how each has helped shape the other. An excellent introduction to the history of the Giro and all that it means to Italy and cycling.
O'Brien wonderfully captures the colorful characters and landscapes that have shaped a century of Italy's national cycling race. An excellent, detailed narrative that expertly places the Giro within the context of modern Italian history.
There is a feast of anecdote to enjoy. A marvelous account and a tremendously exciting story.
