Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Hugely enjoyable...The only real problem with this book is that it's making me wish away the start of the summer and fast-forward to 2 July and le grand départ" (Helen Pidd Guardian)

"His journey from self confessed 'football hack winging it in a sport beyond his ken' to his initiation into the Tour's nuances and eccentric characters delivers an amusing, warm and easy read" (London Cyclist)

"A candid, insightful and often hilarious account" (Alastair Campbell)

"I thought Ned was an old hand at the Tour. Evidently he was clueless... Told with panache" (David Millar)

"Hugely enjoyable... Brilliant" (Ben East Metro)

Présentation de l'éditeur

'Paris, 4 July 2003: My first Tour de France. I had never seen a bike race. I had only vaguely heard of Lance Armstrong. I had no idea what I was doing there. Yet, that day I was broadcasting live on television. I fumbled my way through a few platitudes, before summing up with the words, "...Dave Millar just missing out on the Yellow Jumper." Yes, the Yellow Jumper.'



Follow Ned Boulting's (occasionally excruciating) experiences covering the world's most famous cycling race. His story offers an insider's view of what really goes on behind the scenes of the Tour. From up-close-and-personal encounters with Lance Armstrong to bewildered mishaps with the local cuisine, Ned's been there, done that and got the crumpled-looking t-shirt.



Eight Tours on from Ned's humbling debut, he has grown to respect, mock, adore and crave the race in equal measure. What's more, he has even started to understand it.



Includes How Cav Won the Green Jersey: Short Dispatches from the 2011 Tour de France

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Entertaining, honest, and different 24 février 2013
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book is quite different to any book on the Tour de France out there (at least to the many of them I have read). I enjoy the Tour on TV every summer and even occasionally go to see the riders when the race comes to my region but I honestly had never come close to realized how it is to be inside the tour for 3 exhausting weeks. This book really shows a side of the Tour that, unless you are planning to join the caravanne, next summer you are not likely to discover by yourself.

The book is a little too British in the sense that if (like me) you are not English many of the book’s characters (like Need’s fellow journalists and TV commentators) won’t ring a bell to you and that takes a little fun out of it. This is probably the only thing I didn’t appreciate about the book; otherwise, it is very entertaining, honest, and funny. I especially liked the words Ned devoted to Thomas Voeckler. Those lines alone showed me that the author really understands French cycling culture.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Entertaining Read 16 juin 2011
Par Bradford B. Lavender - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Very entertaining and insightful. As listeners of the "Real Peloton" podcast will know, Ned Boulting has a great sense of humor, and this is on display throughout the book. (There were several instances where I laughed out loud at some of the passages.) This book gives a very different perspective of the Tour, and for that alone it is worth any professional cycling fan's time. Recommended.

OK, I am Biased...Ned is a friend, but an OLD friend, who I saw recently, but have not been in touch with for years...fantastic work. I did not know a thing about cycling and it is the perfect book for those who want to learn and for those who love France. It is very funny. A truly great book.

I listen to Ned Boulting's podcast with Matt Rendel and their TDF podcasts. They are hilarious as is Ned and this book. If you love cycling, the TDF, or just a funny sports book, this is a good one. Can't wait for his ext book which is out soon.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 A bit dated given events of the last couple of years 28 avril 2013

Interesting pot pourri of reflections on the Tour. Wished i had read it before the Armstrong revelations as its a bit dated now...but still not a bad read
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A light and entertaining read 5 janvier 2013

Ned's observations on cycling culture are insightful and hilarious. He also has a very good chapter on the Floyd Landis doping affair.
