A definitive history of cycle road racing, from the first race in 1868 to the present day from author and journalist Chris Sidwells which looks at the beginning and development of the sport. Sidwells also explains the tactics and looks at the different physical types that succeed and examines why some nations have dominated this sport and why, until recently, British riders underperformed. It also looks at the way the great races were founded and developed, and how the great riders stamped their authority on them through the ages. Published in 2018.
