    Les Woodland strikes again with a torrent of insights and colorful anecdotes on the world of bicycle racing, this time centered on the World Championships Even after than twenty books on cycling, including one of a ride across the US, he hasn t run out of material The man is a bottomless reservoir of cycling knowledge No matter how much one may know about the world of bicycle racing, one can be certain to have that knowledge greatly expanded by this or any of Woodland s books.His solid reporting is always supplemented with overlooked incidental but pertinent detail, such as Bobet s superstition regarding the number 41 He always kept a wary eye on the rider wearing the number Here s hoping Woodland still has many a book left in him His colorful, zesty writing is always a pleasure The man clearly is enthralled by his subject and delights in sharing what he knows.
