    DescriptionA 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.

    Review quote
    '...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.'
