Item description for The 2007 Tour de France by John Wilcockson...
With the cycling world tangled in drug scandals at the close of the last Tour de France, long-standing and successful teams underwent major shake-ups that set the stage for an exciting and unpredictable 2007. In this especially eagerly awaited edition of an annual favorite, John Wilcockson and the editors of VeloNews follow the jersey winners from the start of the Pro Tour season all the way to the Champs-Elyses, capturing the heroics of cycling's most famous and watched race.
Each stage of France's grueling three-week Tour comes to life here with maps, stage profiles, daily commentary by the riders themselves, and photographs of the pivotal moments. With close-up coverage of each jersey pursuit, The 2007 Tour de France delivers much more than a race recap. It captures the heat and drama as the peloton's most promising riders --- climbers, sprinters, newcomers, and top contenders --- stop at nothing to get the maillot jeune.
