Book of the week

Melanoma, It Started with a freckle

In Melanoma: It Started with a Freckle, David L. Stanley invites you to join him on an inside tour of his cancer. You’ll travel with Stanley from the dimly lit and elegantly decorated office of the dermatologist to the fluorescent glare of the operating room theater and back to the workplace as he faces up to melanoma—the only major cancer that has seen its incidence rise since 2000—with humor, humility, and a deep understanding of the disease borne of research and science. 

In a memoir that speaks to anyone who has bumped up against a major health scare, Stanley offers up an engaging primer on how to finesse a path through cancer, the boogeyman under everyone’s bed, with gravity and wit and honor. 

In the words of Guggenheim Fellow Prof. Lennard Davis: "David Stanley lets you know what it’s like to be in his skin, literally. A riveting account of his experiences with melanoma is by turns suspenseful, affecting, and informative. Told with humor and intelligence, this book is a must read for anyone who wants to know more about the human side of this all-too-common cancer."

You can get Melanoma: It Started with a Freckle as a print book, Kindle eBook or Audiobook. All the info is here.

Philippe Thys

Each week I'm posting a photo of a winner of the Tour de France, in year order.

For this week, here is Philippe Thys, winner of the 1913 edition.

I believe Thys is the greatest Tour de France rider in history.

Thys was the first three-time winner of the Tour (1913, 1914, 1920), a feat that was not matched until Louison Bobet won his third Tour in 1955 and not exceeded until 1963 when Jacques Anquetil won the Tour for the fourth time.

To understand the greatness of Thys' accomplishment one must understand what he was up against and how times have changed.

The bikes Thys and his cohorts rode were fragile. Forks and wheels regularly broke. Roads were often terrible, especially in the high mountains.

Riders back then had to perform their own repairs, making an equipment failure potentially catastrophic. Thys was headed to victory in 1922 when a broken wheel cost him 3½ hours.

Though he suffered mechanical problems in the 1913 Tour just like the rest of the riders, Thys also suffered a fall that knocked him cold. Yet he still won.

Tour father Henri Desgrange thought it likely that Thys would have won seven Tours if his career had not been interrupted by the First World War.

We have results for every stage of every edition of the Tour de France. You can find them here.

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.
