Roule Britannia: A History of Britons in the Tour de France

Roule Britannia: A History of Britons in the Tour de France - William Fotheringham An interesting book about the British riders who have taken place in the Tour de France up to 2005.It covers the earliest riders in the Tour history, and goes up to David Millar just after he was banned for EPO. Cavendish and Wiggins are not covered, though Wiggins does get a mention.Each significant rider gets a chapter to himself. The riders covered are Robinson, Simpson, Harrison, Hogan, Sherwin, Millar, Elliot, Yates, Boardman, and Millar. It is not complete history of everything they have done in the Tour, but a good overview. Other riders are mentioned in the context of the main riders that they rode with.
