Push Yourself Just A Little Bit More : Backstage at Le Tour de France Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Johnny Green, ex-road manager of The Clash and author of A Riot of Our Own, gets behind the security cordon of Le Tour de France to provide an insider's account of the world's greatest cycle race. No book on the Tour de France has ever got quite as close to the race as this account of the 2003 and 2004 races from inside the security cordon, mingling with the cyclists, press and the 'Credit Lyonnais trophy girls' in equal measure.

Johnny Green managed to blag his way right to the inner sanctum, to chat to the likes of Sheryl Crow and David Millar and the many stagehands behind the scenes on the three-week tour.

The only place he didn't make it was into the doping van.

Fittingly, from the former road manager of The Clash, PUSH YOURSELF JUST A LITTLE BIT MORE is a kind of rock 'n' roll account of life on the road with Le Tour.
