The Encyclopedia of the Yellow Jersey

Tour De France

Frédérique Galametz, Philippe Bouvet

Eugène Christophe was leading the Tour de France in 1919 when an official, frustrated that all the riders were wearing similar outfits, gave him a yellow jersey so that he could be picked out in the peloton. Celebrating the honour and achievement of following in his tracks, this illustrated volume profiles the top riders, tells the most dramatic stories and provides statistics about the maillot jaune over a 100 years of the world’s premier cycle race. With a preface by Eddy Merckx.
