Nearly 400 pages of the Blue Book take you back 34 years with race reports, statistics and first-person accounts from winners, key personalities and leading journalists, accompanied by pictures and illustrations to bring the iconic year of cycling to life.
Kathy LeMond provides an intimate memoir of her husband’s Tour de France triumph, Edwig van Hooydonck explains what it means to be one of the great Tour of Flanders champions, and Ned Boulting illustrates the experiences of several generations of cyclists as the Cold War ended.
What a fabulous book for anyone from that era of racing. 1989 was a superb year. Great quality. Terrific stories…especially the one starting on page 334 by Lisa Brambani. Love it.
Thanks, Lisa Brambani x
It's a substantial book, more comfortable in the hand than the big red ones, and so nicely laid out. I've been spending my evenings with these tables of names I don't recognize (along with the few I do) and the little race summaries have been adding a wonderful texture to my cycling fan-brain. So good.
A great picture of cycling in a great year for cycling......look forward to other flash-backs to other great years.
Well worth the purchase - informative and full of nostalgic pleasure.
I live the whole production , from content to the quality of the final book. But one thing I find difficult - the type size. The Red Book is so tiny that i need a magnifying glass, so i just gave up.
