No sport demands and celebrates the suffering of its participants like road racing, yet the pursuit of cycling was formed with a spirit of emancipation, freedom, invention and revolution. Through lively accounts of fifty key riders, from early pioneers like Mark Twain to modern-day superstars like Eddy Merckx, Break Away is a fascinating and arresting new history of road cycling.
