Master Jacques

The Enigma of Jacques Anquetil


£14.95 
 

Of the great champions, Jacques Anquetil, the first to win the Tour de France five times, remains the most mysterious. A prodigy, he burst upon the scene at 18 in the Grand Prix des Nations. Yet, perhaps more than any of cycling's legends, he protected his private life from public gaze. Richard Yates explores the enigma of this great French rider.


Of all the great cycling champions, Jacques Anquetil - the first man to win the Tour de France five times - remains the most mysterious. A prodigy, he burst upon the racing scene at the age of 18, defeating the world's best in the Grand Prix des Nations. From that moment on, insists Pierre Chany, 'he no longer belonged to himself'. Yet, perhaps more than any of cycling's legends, he managed to protect his private life from public gaze.
