The Race by Dave Shields

The Race : A Novel of Grit, Tactics, and the Tour de France The Race: A Novel of Grit, Tactics, and the Tour de France by Dave Shields

A quick, yet thoroughly enjoyable read. While it’s a work of fiction, I think it gives the reader some sense of what it must be like to participate in professional cycling. Dave Shields may not present a likely situation for one particular rider, but he does a good job trying to express the mental and physical stamina required to be competitive at this level. If you even have a remote interest in the world of cycling, I’d recommend this as a nice light read.
