This is an heroic account of an inadequate man's attempt to achieve the unachievable. It's not easy cycling the Tour de France. Battling it out with old men on butchers' bikes and pursued by cattle, Tim Moore soon finds himself resorting to narcotic assistance and systematic overeating. Accounts of his suffering and chicanery, and those encountered in the race's history, are interwoven through a look at France's preparations for the most famous cycling event in the world. This recording is unabridged. Typically abridged audiobooks are not more than 60 per cent of the author's work and as low as 30 per cent with characters and plotlines removed.
