Tour Climbs: The Complete Guide to Every Mountain Stage on the Tour de France tour climbs the complete guide to every mountain stage on the tour de france
The first book to cover in detail every major climb ever used in the Tour de France, including detail on the actual route (with maps and profile), length, height, list of winners and route descriptions of how to emulate the King of the Mountains and get from the bottom to the top. Every year the Tour de France is said to only really start when it reaches the first mountain stages: the drama of the race only really begins as the climbers take over in the Pyrenees, Vosges or Alps. The Tour is also the most famous classic in cycling and draws huge audiences to the TV and internet coverage (the official web site holds the world record for number of hits excluding search engines). But the route of the Tour is not just for professionals. A growing number of people now take their bikes and actually do a stage of the Tour (the Etap - for amateurs, which this year attracted 8,000 people to climb one of the hardest mountain stages in the Tour) or spend a week doing some of the more notorious climbs (Ventoux - where Tommy Simpson died in the 50s). This book is for everyone who watches the Tour and has even the slightest of an inkling that they'd like to do at least one of the climbs. Packed with information on each climb, this is the ultimate guide to the Tour climbs, which will remain important for many years to come (the Tour only uses a set number of climbs, which they return to every couple of years). Contents - Eastern Pyrenees, Central Pyrenees, Western Pyrenees, Vosges & Jura, Massif & Cevennes, Northern Alps, Central Alps and Southern Alps.

For the 100th edition of the world's greatest bike race, and the seventh annual edition of the sport's greatest cycling publication, we sent seven writers and photographers on the road at the Tour de France, each given three stages to record their individual takes on La Grande Boucle. Sebastian Schels captures the rugged beauty of Corsica, contrasting empty mountains with populous roads. Former Guardian sports writer Richard Williams recalls a dramatic grand depart, with numerous crashes and a stuck team bus. Photographer and writer Geoff Waugh follows two careers, one beginning, the other drawing to a close. Danny van Poppel, 19, became the youngest Tour rider since the Second World War, making an immediate impression with third place on the opening stage in Bastia. The hugely popular Jens Voigt, meanwhile, went out in style with numerous attacks during his final Tour at the age of 41. The tiny village of Saint-Beat bordering the Pyrenees was devastated by flash floods in late June. Timm Kolln and Oliver Nilsson-Julien witness proud locals preparing for the arrival of stage 9 amidst destroyed homes and businesses. Eurosport commentators Carlton Kirby and Sean Kelly spend three weeks in a cramped TV booth on the finish line at each day's stage. Robert Wyatt trains his lens on the broadcasters at Mont Saint-Michel, while Ian Cleverly goes walkabout with roving reporter - and recently retired pro cyclist - Rob Hayles as he interviews riders and managers on the start line. Taz Darling and Rouleur Editor Guy Andrews get up close and personal with the Tour organisation. Race Director Christian Prudhomme and his team conjured up one of the best Tours in decades. Taz and Guy find out how on the road to Mont Ventoux. Patience is a prerequisite of Tour-watching. Paolo Ciaberta finds fans on Alpe d'Huez who have been in position for days. Andy McGrath asks them why, as well as reporting on the Froome phenomenon and a disastrous race for the home nation. Jakob Kristian Sorensen and Morten Okbo hook up with Russian team Katusha for the final three stages to Paris - one day in the race car, the next witnessing tears of relief, then finally reaching the Champs-Elysees and tears of joy at an emotional after-party in the capital city.
