Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Excellent ... compulsive reading...redresses the balance with considerable literary style and panache." (The Washing Machine Post)

"Don't be surprised if you fall in love with Max Leonard's book. A glorious celebration of coming last." (Brendan Gallagher thetour.co.uk)

"Thoughtful, properly researched and consistently entertaining" (Tim Moore)

"[A] lively account of largely forgotten men... It's not easy to come up with an original angle on Le Tour, but with this rear view Leonard has managed the feat in style" (Simon Redfern Independent on Sunday)

"Brilliant... The stories of the lanternes rouges that Leonard picks out have real value, because the race's rear view can tell you much more than the angle we're all familiar with" (Michael Hutchinson Independent)

Excellent read. Not much heard about the 'Lanterne Rouge' except commentator 'snip-its'. Gives background how the 'workers' make the tour happen.

Fascinating read 26 novembre 2014

Near the best bicycling book I've read. It's more than a quick story of the last rider in the Tour de France. I follow cycling races casually except for the Tour de France which I've followed since 1999. This was a fun read. The author gives stories and information surrounding the Lanterne Rouge. Fascinating to the last page, and I bore easily...I will probably read it again over the upper mid-west winter...

The world is populated with unknown heroes of all persuasions ... 8 septembre 2014

The world is populated with unknown heroes of all persuasions. This book should be required reading for all students of human drive and the true meaning of success. It is a pity that we (US) no longer emphasize biographies as important, thought provoking means to an intellectual, analytical end that enables appreciation of selfless effort.
Well-written and enjoyable exploration of what it means to be the last of the best 30 janvier 2015

Well-written and enjoyable exploration of what it means to be the last of the best - one has to be an incredible athlete to even participate in the Tour de France... Leonard's research into the "Lanternes Rouges" of the past centuries is illuminating - he looks at how the race organizers feel about the designation, how the riders feel and how those who have "won" the award feel. As one might expect there are a lot of attitudes and philosophies, not to mention myths, legends and fuzzy recollections. I was thoroughly entertained.
Tour de France fans will enjoy it 13 mars 2015

Good overall book. Gives you some history of the Tour de France and doesn't shy away from discussing the drugs riders used to try and get an advantage in all era's of the race. Gives good insight on the riders that slave away in relative obscurity and what they had to do just to hold on to the back of the peloton.
I think the most insightful part of the book was when he quoted Craig Gaulzetti on the gulf between a top level pro and club riders. "They are not like us. Their lifestyle and training regimes have nothing to do with the healthy activity of recreational cycling." There is more to the quote but that is the jest of it is that no matter how much us normal folks ride it doesn't come close to what the top level pros go through.
