Product description

In recent years, the Tour de France has been blighted by doping scandals and rumours surrounding some of the sport's most prolific champions. Nevertheless, there were traditional racers who had held on to their values and were determined to win clean in 2012, bringing honour and sportsmanship back to the competition. Through extensive interviews with the leading figures behind this new effort, Jeremy Whittle gives the reader an unparalleled insight into just what it takes to accomplish the seemingly impossible. Bradley Wiggins, Mark Cavendish, Chris Froome, Dave Brailsford and Jonathan Vaughters are the men spearheading the campaign, and French Renaissance tells the story of what it meant to them, and to the Tour de France, to win clean in 2012.
