Book of the week

Dirty Feet is a fresh look at the now more than 100-year-old Tour de France. Les Woodland goes back to the blue-collar origins of the race when the father of the Tour, Henri Desgrange, was so bothered by the hygiene of his tough, beloved racers that at the end of each stage he would publish the names of the riders who did not wash after a day of racing on France's mostly dirt and often muddy roads.

The sports paper Desgrange edited was going to go out of business unless some way could be found to increase circulation. That way was a giant sales promotion called the Tour de France, first run in 1903. Dirty Feet tells anew the story of the Tour's origins—at a time when the average life expectancy of a Frenchman was just thirty—and how it came to be modern spectacle it is today.

Come along for the ride as Henri Desgrange creates the greatest sporting event in the world, The Tour de France.

Dirty Feet: How the great unwashed created the Tour de France is available in print, eBook and audiobook versions. You can get all the info on the book here.

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

For this week here is the winner of the 1914 edition of the Giro d'Italia, Alfonso Calzolari racing that Giro on the execrable roads of the era.

Since the Giro's origin in 1909, the General Classification had been calculated using points.

The 1914 Giro GC was the first edition that used elapsed time to figure the standings and time has remained the basis of the Giro's standings ever since.

The 1914 Giro was without a doubt the hardest-ever Grand Tour. Only eight riders were able to finish this staggeringly difficult race.

Calzolari raced the 1914 Giro's 3,162 kilometers at an average speed of 23.37 km/hr. He finished nearly two hours ahead of second-place Pierino Albini.

We have results for every stage of every edition of the Giro d'Italia. 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.
