From Van Impe to Pogacar, Pantani, Chiappucci, Nibali and Contador, these cyclists’ stories brim with success, aggression, courage and imagination. The book is a tribute to the sport’s greatest climbers, always able to keep fans on the edge of their seats at every uphill sprint.
Cycling comes in all sorts of flavours. In the collective imagination, when we speak of the great multiple-stage competitions – Tour, Giro d’Italia and Vuelta – all the highlights come from the great climbers.
This two-man effort by Eurosport commentators Luca Gregorio and Riccardo Magrini is based on the emotions triggered by ten selected climbers and takes us through the great exploits that marked their careers.
The book includes a foreword by writer, mountaineer and standout cycling fan Mauro Corona.
