Colombia Es Pasion! : The Generation of Racing Cyclists Who Changed Their Nation and the Tour de France Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

By winning the 2019 Tour de France, Egan Bernal became the race's youngest champion in 110 years, and the first from the South American nation of Colombia.

His victory brought decades of national yearning to fruition.

Colombia has long been the only developing nation contending at cycling's highest level.

Yet its cycling sons are not the products of a rigorous sports system that spots them in childhood and nurtures them through the ranks to the pinnacle of globalised sport.

They come from harder backgrounds, that surprise, shock - even, at times, enchant. Colombia Es Pasion! explores the lives and dreams of each of the nation's leading cyclists.

Theirs are inspiring stories of overcoming poverty and violence, sickness and corruption, and achieving global sporting glory. 'Takes you into the heart of both a sport and a country.

The journey is well worth the effort' Sunday Times'Wonderful' Observer'Remarkable, a masterpiece' Never Strays Far podcast
