    • The first in what has become a series of collections of cycling journalism, I'd had this on my to read list for a while now. Ellis Bacon and Lionel Birnie have brought together a very varied collection of pieces giving us some snippets of insight into Wiggins' Tour de France victory, the changing relationship between Anna Meares and Victoria Pendleton, why Spain doesn't appreciate Oscar Friere enough and an amusingly short piece on everybody's favourite playboy Mario Cipollini. Of course, a numb [...]



    • A good selection of cycling writing. I particularly enjoyed the longer form and more personal articles and those on cyclists I was less familiar with e.g. Alasdair Fotheringham on Oscar Freire. It's worth reading this just for Kenny Pryde's thoughts on doping and why cycling needs to find some equilibrium again and Jeremy Whittle on the lack of trust and dark shadows that make that some difficult.


    • As I have often stated cycling lends itself to some great writing due to the personalities, politics and potential epic struggles that the sport embodies. This Anthology takes it even further. A list of the great and the good of cycling writers contribute, and they shine a light on some of the more unusual but still fascinating areas of the greatest sport on the planet- highly recommended, as is the recently released 2nd Anthology which I received and read in a couple of days as well.


    • A great read, the chapter about Meares vs Pendleton is fantastic. I agree with the other reviewer who said the biggest problem with this is that it is too short. I'd add that there is quite a bit in here about Team Sky and Bradley Wiggins, but this is a British publication. More are planned, thankfully.


    • Superb anthology of cycling writing. Really 4.5 stars. The chapter on Thomas Voeckler (my favourite cyclist) was bang on the money. The only downside, and hence not 5 stars, is that the book is too short.I hope the second volume will be 50% more.


    • What a delightful little anthology! Great style in presentation, a veritable Who's Who of cycling journalists and cyclists as contributors, and a genuinely interesting and diverse selection of topics. Will certainly be acquiring the other volumes.
