Book of the week

The Story of the Giro d'Italia

The Giro d’Italia is one of the world’s most important and popular bicycle races, yet there is almost no information in English about this magical Italian race’s rich past. With The Story of the Giro d’Italia, the fabulous history of Italy’s national tour is at last available. Volume One took the story of the Giro from its origin as a desperate promotional gamble by a nearly broke newspaper to Eddy Merckx’s convincing 1970 victory.

Volume Two describes the growth of the Giro into a modern, vital international race that is followed by cycling fans all over the world. Along the way, the stories and races that have excited the public over the last forty years are told, including the Francesco Moser/Giuseppe Saronni rivalry, the tragic tale of Marco Pantani and the Alberto Contador affair that left the Spaniard stripped of his 2011 Giro championship.

You can get The Story of the Giro d'Italia, Vol. 2 in print, Kindle eBook or as an audiobook.

Rene Pottier

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

For this week, here is René Pottier, winner of the 1906 Tour de France. This was the Tour's fourth edition.

As they had in 1904 and 1905, protesters continued to harass the Tour, spreading nails on the road. René Pottier proved his climbing superiority with wins in several mountain stages. His stage-three ride entailed an epic 220 km solo breakaway.

He won five of the 1906 Tour's 13 stages. He was an extraordinary rider at the top of his form.

But Pottier wasn't able to enjoy his win. In January of 1907 he committed suicide. He was found hanging from a bike hook at the Peugeot clubhouse. He had learned that while he was away from home winning the Tour, his wife had taken a lover.

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.
