Cycling's 50 Triumphs and Tragedies

When more than 100 men or women go racing down a road, inches away from each other, in all weather, over all kinds of roads, the opportunity for a brilliant win or a terrible accident is always there.

For more than a century bicycle racers have sought glory, but have often found only misery. There can be only one winner, and even that triumph can be mixed with terrible loss. Fausto Coppi, coached by a blind man, set the World Hour Record in Milan during the war while the city was being shattered by bombs.

Tom Simpson was world champion in 1965, but by 1967, he was nearly a has-been. Desperate to win the Tour de France, he took an overdose of amphetamines and died by the side of the road of heart failure, probably caused by dehydration triggered by the drugs that were to help him win.

Great joy and tragedy so close together.

Join cycling’s most accomplished writer, Les Woodland, as he explores the heroic, sometimes triumphant side of cycling, all the time reminding us that for every winner in cycling there have to be a hundred losers. Sometimes their tale is better or sadder than the winner’s.

Cycling's 50 Triumphs & Tragedies is available in print, eBook and audiobook versions

Gustaaf Deloor

It's late August, so it's time for the third of cycling's Grand Tours, the Vuelta a España, or Tour of Spain.

Pictured above is Belgian racer Gustaaf Deloor, winner of the first Vuelta a España, held in May of 1935. It was in 1995 that the Vuelta shifted from being a Spring race to being run in the Fall. The organizers always had trouble competing with the Spring Classics and the Giro d'Italia.

In fact, that first Vuelta in 1935 had that very trouble and was unable to attract the quality field they had hoped for.

That was a shame because the first Vuelta was a truly tough race and Deloor was a deserving winner. He went on to win the 1936 Vuelta's edition as well.

His other best finish was 2nd place in the 1937 Liège-Bastogne-Liège.

After the war Deloor moved to the United States, but moved back to Belgium in 1980.

Gustaaf Deloor died in 2002.

What you'll find in our site:

The Tour de France. Lots of information, including results for every single stage of every Tour.

Other important bike races: the Giro d'Italia, the Vuelta a España, along with the classics, stage races, national championships, world records, and olympics.

We keep a running record of the races going on in the current year, with results, photos, maps, etc. We've been doing this since 2001, so the results for this year as well as previous years are available here.

This site is owned and run by McGann Publishing. We're a micro-publisher specializing in books about cycling history. Interested? Here's information on our titles in print.

We are devoted to cycling and all of its characters and events. The sport's past matters to us. We've been interviewing anyone who will sit down and talk to us, then writing up the interviews, and collecting other stories about cycling. We have rider histories—the stories of individual riders, many by the great cycling writer Owen Mulholland. We have our oral history project—the results of our interviews. And we've collected lots of photos over the years, of racers, racing, manufacturing, etc., which we have arranged into photo galleries for your enjoyment.

Being in the bike business for many years, we had to opportunity to travel a lot in Europe, riding bikes, attending trade shows, etc. We've written up many of our travels, and had some contributions from others whose travels differed from ours.

What would the day be without the funnies? Our friend Francesca Paoletti has drawn a series of comics about bike related stuff, poking fun at us along the way.

If you are interested in bikes, sooner or later you will want to know some technical information about bikes. We have articles here about bike weight, how bike frames are prepped and assembled, selected bike parts, and others.

And then there's food! The bicycle runs on the human engine, and the human engine runs on food, so of course we're interested in that.

Along the way we've been privileged to meet many people in and around the bike business who do things we like. The folks whose ads are up there on the right are friends of ours who we believe conduct their business knowledgably and honorably; here are a few others who do stuff we like.
