9780224099943: 101 Damnations: Dispatches from the 101st Tour de France

A funny and irreverent look behind the scenes at the 2014 Tour de France

Join Ned Boulting as he reports on his dozen-th Tour de France, an event in which blokes do amazing things on bikes, and, we’re oft told, the biggest annual sporting event in the world. This account is a chance to relive the 2014 race, stage for stage, fall after fall, tantrum by tantrum; just the good parts, mind you, without all the aerial shots of castles. Or sunflowers. (Though it does wax lyrical about some stunning Alpine scenery . . . and, with the race starting in Yorkshire, even some stunning scenery not far from Bradford). From Leeds to Paris (how often do you say that?), Ned details the minutiae of his encounters with the likes of Vincenzo Nibali, David Millar, Chris Froome, Chris Boardman (or "Broadman" as some would have it), Marcel Kittel, Mrs. Cavendish (Mark’s wife), Peter Sagan, and the rest. Their endeavors, achievements, humor, and occasional rancor sit alongside his own decade-long quest for the ideal end-of-race T-shirt. Ned weaves together the interesting, amusing, and unheralded threads of the race itself, and reflects on his own perennial struggle to get round, get on, and get by. 101 Damnations encapsulates all that is incredible—and incredibly ordinary—about the greatest race on earth.

About the Author:

Ned Boulting is a soccer reporter for ITV and has presented seven Tours of Britain, the Vuelta España, the Tour of California, as well as the Tour Series and the inaugural Women’s Tour. He is the author of How I Won the Yellow Jumper and On the Road Bike.

Review:

"Boulting's behind-the-scenes tales provide a unique experience that won't be found elsewhere" -- Nick Bull * Cycling Weekly * "This is easily Ned Boulting's finest work to date...there is a maturity of writing here that raises the author several levels above that of (mere) pundit" * Washing Machine Post * "You can't hide Boulting's genuine almost innocent enthusiasm for the sport and the Tour de France" * Cycling Uphill * "If you're a cycling fan looking to stay in touch with the summer as daylight dims, 101 Damnations will keep the madness and majesty of the Tour de France close" * Bike Radar * "101 Damnations encapsulates all that is incredible - and incredibly ordinary - about the greatest race on earth" * Sports Pink *
