Put Me Back on My Bike: in Search of Tom Simpson
Simpson was a world champion, an Olympic medallist and the first Briton to wear the Tour de France's fabled yellow jersey. But then,watched by thousands of fans as he took on the fearsome Mont Ventoux during the 1967 Tour, one of cycling's biggest names keeled over and died. William Fotheringham's account of that fateful day and the life of a troubled spotsman - Simpson was one of the first cyclists to admit to using banned drugs - is as gripping as it is enlightening.
