Книга доступна в форматах: fb2 , pdf , epub
A Race for Madmen is the extraordinary history of the Tour de France. It explains how a simple sporting contest captured the imagination of a country, then a continent, and then the world, while at the same time staying uniquely French, even though a Frenchman hasn't won it for over 20 years. It explains why every July the race for the white, green, polka dot and, most importantly, the yellow jersey hypnotises the world with three weeks of sporting madness.
