'COPPI' by Herbie Sykes.
This outstanding book is a beautiful pictorial and factorial history of
cycling legend Fausto Coppi. With interviews of his faithful gregarios
and unique pictures, many of which have been rarely seen before,
it tells the story of arguabley the greatest cyclist ever, 5 Giro (22
stage wins), 2 Tours (9 stage wins), the hour record, World
Championship, 5 Giro di Lombardia, 3 Milan-SanRemo, 4 National titles,
des Nations, Paris-Roubaix, Fleche-Wallone, his palmares pre and post
war are exceptional. Coupled with an extraordinary private life and
tragic early death, this account of 'Il Campionissimo' strips away many
of the half-truths and lies which have been grafted onto his legend
over the decades. It's a must have for all genuine cycling fans.
