Product Overview

There is no better way to appreciate the history of a sport than to experience it through a collector's treasures. "Cycling's Golden Age" takes readers inside the extraordinary Horton Collection for an intimate look at one of the sport's most memorable eras, 1946– 1967. From the commanding victories of Fausto Coppi to the rise of Jacques Anquetil, the Horton Collection boasts never-before-published photographs and countless jerseys, trophies, posters, and other artifacts. Cycling historian Owen Mulholland weaves it all together with the tales of each rider, their admirable feats, and the nostalgia of each piece in the collection. Featured items include Fausto Coppi's maglia rosa and Tour de France podium sash; Hugo Koblet's personal treasure trove, including his Tour de France trophy, maillot jaune, maglia rosa, and Giro d'Italia trophy; and Gino Bartali's maglia rosa and Tour de France stage winner's trophy. Each painstakingly preserved piece evokes the dramatic history of this popular world-class sport.
