A literary sports classic, finally available in the U.S. Originally published in Holland in 1978, "The Rider" became an instant cult classic, selling over 100,000 copies. Brilliantly conceived and written at a break-neck pace, it is a loving, imaginative, and, above all, passionate tribute to the art of bicycle road racing. Not a dry history of the sport, "The Rider" is beloved as a bicycle odyssey, a literary masterpiece that describes in painstaking detail one 150-kilometer race in a mere 150 pages. "The Rider" is the ultimate book for bike lovers as well as the arm-chair sports enthusiast.

Tim Krabbe is one of Holland's leading writers, and his novels are published all over the world. His many books include "The Vanishing," which was made into a successful film, and "The Cave." He lives in Amsterdam.
'...there's something about Krabbe's spare writing style that lulls even uninitiated readers into a sort of trance--presumably not unlike that of the long-distance racer moving ever closer to the finishing line.'
