Description:

Bike racing? If you want to understand the complexities of this sport, you could pore through a small library on the equipment, training, strategy, race formats, and lifestyle. Or you can read Roadie. The world of bike racing reaches well beyond July's race for the yellow jersey. Whether you just watch the Tour or know a Roadie racing in a local criterium, this book unlocks the magic and explains the devotion of racing's faithful participants. With a keen sense of humor and a lifetime of experience, veteran race announcer Jamie Smith explains every neurotic habit and obsessive practice in this strange and wonderful sport.
