Boulting's Velosaurus

5/5
A linguistic Tour de France. The language of cycling is vibrant, sophisticated, often impenetrable and extremely French; filled with casual references to ‘échapée’, ‘rouleurs’ and ‘pavé’. Now commentator and cycling writer Ned Boulting provides the ultimate lexicon of nonsense terminology. Injecting French words with cycling-related meaning and packed with Tour de France in-jokes. For example, ‘panache’ (riding with doomed flamboyance, conscious of the need to renew one’s contract), ‘moutarde’ (any race that ends, begins or passes through the city of Dijon); and ‘Angers’ (past caring). An ideal companion to all things ‘peloton’.

Hardback, 237 pages, 26 black and white illustrations.
20.5 x 13.5cm.
