By: Graeme Fife (author)Hardback
2 - 4 weeks availability
This is a biography of Brian Robinson, racing cyclist. Brian Robinson, the first Englishman ever to complete the Tour de France, went on to make a career as a professional cyclist in what is generally regarded as one of the toughest eras in a very tough sport. He adapted to French life, the continental style of racing and the taxing demands of a long season with clear-headed tenacity. For all the British riders who later followed him to Europe - and there have not been many since his days as a lone coureur anglais, still a comparatively rare breed - he was, without dispute, the great pioneer.
Graeme Fife is a full-time writer who has had a number of cycling books published in the UK, Holland, USA and Turkey. He has broadcast on the six main BBC radio networks and has written plays, stories and features for radio and stage, as well as directing and performing.
