Book of the week

Paris-Roubaix: The Inside Story

The Paris–Roubaix bicycle race, nicknamed "The Hell of the North", is famous for sending riders over brutal cobblestone roads. Only the strong, brave and lucky survive the hours of bone-shaking racing without suffering some mishap or catastrophe.

It is so difficult no one wins it by accident, and winning Paris–Roubaix automatically puts a rider among the immortals of the sport.

How did that come to be? At one time roads everywhere were paved with cobbles. Why did Paris–Roubaix emerge to be such a special race?

Les Woodland tells the inside story: how one of cycling's classics grew from several 19th century businessmen's plan to bring cycling to the mill town of Roubaix. It wasn't a sure thing, and several times it seemed the race might die.

It's a fascinating tale, so fasten your seat belts, Les is going to take you on a bumpy ride.

Paris-Roubaix: The Inside Story is available in print, Kindle ebook and audiobook versions. You can get all the info on the book here.

Or go straight to Amazon to get the book here.

Jan Janssen

Each week I'm posting a photo of a winner of the Tour de France, in year order.

For this week, here is 1968 Tour de France winner Jan Janssen.

Since I don't currently have a picture of Janssen in yellow during the 1968 Tour (he took the lead during the final stage, an individual time trial), here he is in yellow in the 1966 Tour, where he wore the Yellow Jersey for a single day after taking it after stage 16 which finished in Briançon. He lost it to Lucien Aimar the next day.

By the final stage of the 1968 Tour, an individual time trial, the top 7 riders were within 2 minutes of each other. Jan Janssen won the stage and the Tour on that final day and became the winner without ever having won the Yellow Jersey during the race.

We interviewed Janssen a few years ago. Here's the transcript.

We have results for every stage of every edition of the Tour de France. You can find them here.

What you'll find in our site:

The Tour de France. Lots of information, including results for every single stage of every Tour.

Other important bike races: the Giro d'Italia, the Vuelta a España, along with the classics, stage races, national championships, world records, and Olympics.

We keep a running record of the races going on in the current year, with results, photos, maps, etc. We've been doing this since 2001, so the results for this year as well as previous years are available here.

This site is owned and run by McGann Publishing. We're a micro-publisher specializing in books about cycling history. Interested? Here's information on our titles in print.

We are devoted to cycling and all of its characters and events. The sport's past matters to us. We've been interviewing anyone who will sit down and talk to us, then writing up the interviews, and collecting other stories about cycling. We have rider histories—the stories of individual riders, many by the great cycling writer Owen Mulholland. We have our oral history project—the results of our interviews. And we've collected lots of photos over the years, of racers, racing, manufacturing, etc., which we have arranged into photo galleries for your enjoyment.

Being in the bike business for many years, we had to opportunity to travel a lot in Europe, riding bikes, attending trade shows, etc. We've written up many of our travels, and had some contributions from others whose travels differed from ours.

What would the day be without the funnies? Our friend Francesca Paoletti has drawn a series of comics about bike related stuff, poking fun at us along the way.

If you are interested in bikes, sooner or later you will want to know some technical information about bikes. We have articles here about bike weight, how bike frames are prepped and assembled, selected bike parts, and others.

And then there's food! The bicycle runs on the human engine, and the human engine runs on food, so of course we're interested in that.

Along the way we've been privileged to meet many people in and around the bike business who do things we like. The folks whose ads are up there on the right are friends of ours who we believe conduct their business knowledgably and honorably; here are a few others who do stuff we like.
