Slaying the Badger

For someone like me that prefers to look backwards not forwards when it comes to cycling, the book by Richard Moore is a classic.

He painstakingly recreates the background and all the drama of the 86 Tour de France. He not only interviews all the main players but goes beyond that and puts in the views and opinions of many of the second tier participants.

A truly fascinating piece of research about France's last and America's first Tour champion.
