Official Treasures of the Tour De France
Happy 100th race, Tour de France! The deluxe Official Treasures series celebrates the grand occasion with a brand-new boxed edition. It gives fans of this 2,200-mile event—considered the greatest test of endurance in the sporting world—an authoritative account of each major era up to and including the 2012 Tour, plus 40 items of historic memorabilia packaged into six folders. The removable facsimiles include souvenir brochures, period newspapers, posters, stickers, and postcards and correspondence from leading cyclists.
An official publication of ASO, the organizers of the Tour de France, in tandem with the French sports newspaper L'Equipe, this volume features a foreword by Bernard Hinault, a five-time champion and Tour ambassador.
