The Greatest Race


The Tour de France has it all: extremes of ego, temperature and terrain; grazes, bruises and streaks; wrecks, wheels and winding paths. Now, in celebration of 100 years of the Tour's infamous mountain section comes the ultimate tribute to cycling's greatest race. World-renowned sports photographer Mike Powell has spent 25 years photographing the greatest sports contests around the globe, and has now devoted 2 years to creating the most epic photographic celebration of the Tour de France ever published: vibrant, compelling and gritty images of the competitors, support crew and spectators beautifully juxtaposed against the breathtaking settings of the Pyrenees, the Alps and the French countryside. An introduction by Lewis Blackwell, author of 2009's best-selling The Life and Love of Trees, details the history of the tour and incorporates a pertinent selection of historical images. The Greatest Race is an epic and stunning tribute to, indeed 'the greatest race'.
