Tomorrow, we ride…
Jean Bobet

“Tomorrow, we ride” is what Louison
and his brother Jean always said to each other, whether in the frenzy of the Tour de France or the Giro d’Italia, or  in their many rides together. This a story full of passion for cycling and Jean’s account of his superstar brother Louison’s career is nothing short of  fascinating but  the book  takes a long term look into contemptary cycling and should be of interest to any cycle racing fan.

The Eagle of the Canavese
Herbie Sykes

More than a biography of Franco
Balmamion, twice winner of the Giro, this is a book about courage, and deceit, joy and the sadness of lost careers. This is Italian cycle racing in the 60s and the men who made it – their stories, by turn, heroic, astonishing and heartbreaking.
 
“…packed with zest and anecdote, the account of Balmamion, the ‘forgotten man’ of Italian cycling is a joy to read.”  David Harmon
