And the winner is.....

The race was a tie! Two great books about the Giro d'Italia showed up at the same time at the posh, well-lit CycleItalia HQ. Bill and Carol McGann's The Story of the Giro d'Italia needs no introduction as we've blogged about it in the past but it's wonderful to see the finished product. The other book Maglia Rosa, turned out to be a pleasant surprise to us and to Bill and Carol! We've been in contact with author Herbie Sykes who lives in Torino, not too far from our HQ hotel in Italy and perhaps we'll meet this season if his schedule allows. Look for reviews of both of these books once Larry's finished reading them both.


  1. for the moment, it's a tie:
    - best title, goes to "Maglia Rosa"
    - best book cover, goes to "The Story of the Giro d'Italia"...
    Seriously now, they both look great books on the Giro history! Lucky Larry gets to read them both!

  2. Can't wait to read them. Well written history is a joy.
