New book collects the best Tour de France stages

Published July 3, 2014

BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — "Étape: 20 Great Stages from the Modern Tour de France," is a new book by Richard Moore that weaves first-person interviews with cycling's great riders to assemble a "dream team" of the best Tour de France stages in modern history.

The book features exclusive interviews with the Tour's legends and scoundrels about their best-ever day on the bike (and their most heartbreaking defeats). Moore recounts tales from 20 great stages of the Tour, including LeMond's impossible return from near-death, Schleck's primal scream atop the Galibier, Merckx's self-described toughest Tour, Cavendish's victory in Aubenas and Hinault's battle with Fignon.

The book is available from VeloPress. Previews of 20 great Tour de France stages will be available on the web starting Saturday, at TheBestTDFStages.com.

The 336-page paperback with black and white photographs throughout has a suggested retail of $18.95.
