I love a good book, especially thrillers / detective stories. I also enjoy a good cycling book.
This year, I found two ‘Good Reads’ under the Christmas Tree (Dec 2018), both by the acclaimed author William Fotheringham. The first was “Merckx: Half Man, Half Bike” and the second was “Fallen Angel: The Passion of Fausto Coppi”.
The first Merckx: Half Man, Half Bike tells the story of Eddie Merckx, without doubt the greatest professional cyclist of his generation.
The second book is life of Fausto Coppi, his rise to stardom and how he died broken hearted.
