Story of the Tour de France, volume 1 Schwab Cycles South Salem Cycleworks frames

Each week I'm posting a photo of a winner of the Giro d'Italia, in year order.

For this week here is a photo of 1963 Giro d'Italia winner Franco Balmamion.

Balmamion, who also won the 1962 Giro, took over the lead after the stage 12 ascent to Leukerbad, but had to give it up following the stage 16 time trial.

The race remained very close, with 24 seconds separating the top five.

Balmamion's brilliantly tactical ride in the mountainous nineteenth stage gave him the final victory.

Balmamion became the first rider to successfully defend his Giro Championship since Fausto Coppi in 1953.

We have results for every stage of every edition of the Giro d'Italia. You can find them here.

Book of the week


Volume two of The Story of the Tour de France opens with super-climber Lucien van Impe’s taking advantage of a course made for the riders with wings. His win was followed by the dominating presence of Bernard Hinault, who became the third rider to win the Tour five times.

Unable to fulfill his destiny as a likely five-time winner because of a hunting accident, Greg LeMond won the Tour three times. LeMond’s era was followed by that of the remarkable Spaniard Miguel Indurain, the first man to win the Tour five times in a row.

The late 1990s were a time of extreme crises for the Tour as the culture of doping within the professional cycling community erupted into the Scandal of 1998. The Story of the Tour de France deals with this episode at length.

For decades, Great Britain was a marginal player in professional cycling, but no longer. British riders have become a dominating presence in recent Tours.

The book concludes with a quest for the greatest-ever Tour de France rider and an epilogue explaining the reason for the extraordinary success of the Tour

The Story of the Tour de France, Vol 2 is available in print, Kindle eBook & audiobook versions here on Amazon.

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.
