The Rider

Tim Krabbe

£9.99 £9.29

This is an extraordinary short novel, which follows the progress of one (fictional) race, the Tour de Mont Aigoual. Told from the perspective of one rider, it takes you inside the mind of a racer like nothing else I've read. (The only writer I've read who comes close is David Millar).

What do you mean, there's another cycling novel? If you can't find the book you're looking for in the list above, don't worry - just search for it and it will be available in the same way as these titles.
