Comments from the original website
Thank you for one of the most wonderfully written fans eye view of any sport that I’ve had the pleasure to read. Spent the last two days absorbed in this..
I found the link on the Guardian website and I’ve just spent a couple of hours reading all of your articles. Perfect way to spend a Sunday evening with a bottle of wine and digging out youtube clips.
the writing and insight has been excellent throughout.
I’ve read many books on the Tour de France but none as enjoyable or as evocative as your series.
Once again a thoroughly enjoyable addition to this wonderful piece. Its comprehensive, well researched and leaves me anticipating the next instalment. Ive mentioned before that I believe this is a piece of work that is worthy of being published. It more than stands up against many previously published books which in comparison are simply woeful. At very least should be turned into an e-book. Round of applause.
Best distraction from work I can think of.
