Book of the week

The Story of the Tour de France

At the dawn of the 20th Century, French newspapers used bicycle races as promotions to build readership. Until 1903 these were one-day events.

Looking to deliver a coup de grace in a vicious circulation war, Henri Desgrange—editor of the Parisian sports magazine L’Auto—took the suggestion of one of his writers to organize a race that would last several days longer than anything else, like the 6-day races on the track, but on the road.

That’s exactly what happened. For almost 3 weeks the riders in the first Tour de France rode over dirt roads and cobblestones in a grand circumnavigation of France. The race was an electrifying success.

Each year a new cast of riders would assemble to contest what has now become the greatest sporting event in the world.

Volume One explores the Tour's origins and takes the reader up to 1975, the year the great Eddy Merckx tried and failed to win a sixth Tour.

Come join us, will you? It's all there in The Story of the Tour de France.

The Story of the Tour de France, Vol 1 is available in print, eBook and audiobook versions. You can get all the info on the book here.

Luigi Ganna

Each week I'm posting a photo of a winner of the Giro d'Italia, in year order. I had been posting pictures of Tour de France winners, but last week I reached 2021. So it's time to start in on Italy's Grand Tour.

For this week here is the winner of the first edition of the Giro d'Italia, Luigi Ganna. In this photo, taken in 1914 in the city of Varese, he is posing in a studio.

On May 13, 1909, the Giro’s first peloton met at the Piazzale Loreto in downtown Milan where the offices of the race's organizer, sports newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, were situated.

The eight-stage race went from Milan to Bologna and onward to Chieti, Naples, Rome, Florence, Genoa and Turin, returning to Milan on the 30th. Riders would cover 2,445 kilometers over eight stages, giving an average stage length of 306 kilometers, not far from the Tour de France’s average. This was the shortest Giro ever.

Immediately after the final stage ended Ganna was asked for his first impression of being the winner of the Giro d’Italia. He thought about it for a moment and gave an answer that any rider would understand, “Me brüsa tanto el cü!” (My butt is on fire!).

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.
