Cycling's 50 Craziest Stories

Professional cycling has been around for more than 100 years, more than enough time for nearly anything imaginable to have happened. Whether it's the Tour de France racer who thought the worst thing that could happen to him was being forced to wear the Yellow Jersey, or the communist team director who insisted, on a whim, that a rider have a toe amputated or the fit of jealousy that started the Giro d'Italia, the sport has an endless supply of examples of human folly.

Les Woodland has the perfect knack for telling these improbable, silly, crazy and absurd stories.

Cycling's 50 Craziest Stories is available in print, eBook and audiobook versions.

Claudio Chiappucci

Claudio Chiappucci wins stage 14 of the 1993 Giro d'Italia in Corvara in Badia.

This was a day of staggering brutality. The day was long, 245 kilometers, but worse, some of cycling's most difficult ascents were stacked up, one after another: Passo di Costalunga, Passo Pordoi, Passo di Fedaia, a second time up the Passo Pordoi and the Passo di Campolongo.

And Chiappucci wasn't racing just anyone. He can't be seen in the picture, but coming in second, a single second behind Chiappucci is Miguel Indurain.

Indurain won the 1993 Giro, Piotr Ugrumov was second at 58 seconds while Chiappuccci was third at a distant 5min 27sec.

Chiappucci is probably most famous for his attempt to win the 1990 Tour de France. After stage 13 he had a 2min 2sec lead. Greg LeMond chipped away at that lead and by the time the race's penultimate stage, a 45.5 individual time trail. Chiappucci was in yellow by only 5 seconds.

LeMond won the stage and the Tour, pushing Chiappucci down to second place. Claudio Chiappucci never won a Grand Tour.

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.
