Descripción

The days of racing by feel and pure emotion are a thing of the past. So says Chris Boardman during a recent interview with James Witts, author of The Science of the Tour de France. Nowadays it's all about cutaway seat tubes, carbon, aero helmets, and power meters. The Science of the Tour de France reveals and explains the application of science at the world's biggest bike race. The Tour de France is a massive draw--many fans enjoy other cycling events, but it's the Tour de France that holds the biggest fascination. But this is no dry first-person roundup of the latest research. Witts talks to the stars--Kittel, Cav, Froome--and the teams around them to dissect how current thinking is burying the historical demons of doping. Marrying scientific evidence and real-life accounts, and featuring many interviews, this book is unlike other contemporary books on cycling and science and will be sure to break out from the pack.
