Book of the week

The Story of the Giro D'Italia

Volume One of The Story of the Giro d'Italia takes 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.

The great rivalry between Fausto Coppi and Gino Bartali is well known, mostly because of their adventures in the Tour de France. But for much of bike racing’s history the Alps have been a high wall and Italian sponsors preferred to keep their racers at home where they could earn valuable publicity. Because of this, there is a whole world of great athletes who are virtually unknown to the non-Italian cycling fan. How about Giovanni Valetti? In 1939 Valetti beat Bartali when Gino was at the very peak of his powers.

Has anyone heard of Giuseppe Enrici, the Giro winner who was born in Pittsburgh? Alfonsina Strada was the only woman who entered (and unofficially finished) a Grand Tour. And there was Giordano Cottur, who won a Giro stage in Trieste while guns blazed.

Clearly, this is a story that had to be told and it's all in The Story of the Giro d'Italia.

The Story of the Giro d'Italia, Vol 1 is available in Print, Kindle ebook & audiobook versions. You can get all the info on the book here.

Lucien van Impe

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

For this week, here is 1976 Tour de France winner Lucien van Impe. I don't have a good picture of van Impe racing in the 1976 Tour, but I really like this poster of him racing in the 1982 Giro d'Italia wearing the mountains classification leader's green jersey. In 2012 the King of the Mountains jersey was changed to blue.

In 1976 van Impe was riding for Gitane-Campagnolo, directed by Cyrille Guimard. They decided that the unusually hilly nature of that year's Tour de France was perfectly suited for van Impe's climbing talents. Rather than make another run at the mountains classification, van Impe rode for overall victory.

Van Impe won the 1976 Tour, but not without hard feelings between Guimard and van Impe. In stage 14 Guimard told van Impe to chase after Luis Ocaña, who had just escaped. Van Impe demurred. Guimard says he threatened to run over van Impe with the team car if he didn't chase the Spaniard (van Impe denies this). Whatever the reason, van Impe did bridge up to Ocaña on the Peyresourde and left Joop Zoetemelk minutes behind. Van Impe took the lead for good that day.

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.
