Graeme Fife's "Tour de France" is not a chronological history of the Tour. You should certainly have tim krabbe's 'the rider', also, which is an absolutely fantastic book. 2 people found this helpful.

Graeme Fife's "Tour de France" is not a chronological history of the Tour. It is a series of little stories loosely woven around famous mountain passes and legendary riders, alternating with personal anecdotes of the author's own experiences in climbing the same passes. There are some excellent passages in the book that give some glimpses into the personalities of the Tour.

Graeme Fife's TOUR DE FRANCE tells tales of great solo rides, amazing fortitude, terrible misfortune and triumph over the odds from the race's remarkable history, which began in July 1903. Within a few years, the Tour was taking the riders across the mountains of the Alps and Pyrenees and they had to carry out their own repairs, find their own food and drink and ride without support - a far cry from today's sophisticated organisation.

Tour de France : The History, The Legend, The Riders is laced with tales of great solo performances, amazing fortitude, terrible misfortune and magnificent triumphs, and will include the stories behind the headlines of the 2015 race.
