Publishers Description
There is no better way to appreciate the history of a sport than to experience it through a collector's treasures. <i>Cycling's Golden Age</i> takes readers inside the extraordinary Horton Collection for an intimate look at one of the sport's most memorable eras, 1946–1967. From the commanding victories of Fausto Coppi to the rise of Jacques Anquetil, the Horton Collection boasts never-before-published photographs and countless jerseys, trophies, posters, and other artifacts. Cycling historian Owen Mulholland weaves it all together with the tales of each rider, their admirable feats, and the nostalgia of each piece in the collection.

Cycling's Holly Monsters  Jan 13, 2007
I found this book a trip back to vintage and historical era of heroism in cycling! You get to realize how much difficult was racing those days without today's technology of bike gear and support. The pictures are really good and I found myself ''lost'' back in those days. A valuable book for the cycling enthusiast. A return to our roots...
