A few more recommendations for your reading list.
First, a couple of great books about two of the greats of French cycling.
For something more contemporary, there’s David Millar’s The Racer.
Fotheringham’s biography of Fausto Coppi is also well worth a look. Fallen Angel: The Passion of Fausto Coppi.
To learn more about cycling’s great champion, read Merckx: Half Man, Half Bike again by William Fotheringham @willfoth
