Il ciclismo secondo me
by Giancarlo Brocci
with an introduction by Gino Cervi
THE BEAUTY OF EXERTION, THE TASTE FOR A CHALLENGE
A roundup of events, characters, places family and distant destinations, epic clashes and stunning heroic defeats.
Through the pages of this book, we find witty, precise and never banal people, the most important names of cycling from Bartali to Magni and Bottecchia, and Saronni, Merckx, Pantani, up to the youngest, Pogačar and Vingegaard.
This story is told by Giancarlo Brocci, a man who made a lot of effort and experience on the pedals but also offered his ideas and inventiveness, committed to recovering the deep soul of a great sport such as cycling.
The creator of L’Eroica, a cycle tourism event that since 1997 has taken place in the province of Siena, Brocci has been able to give life and convey the idea of a return to the cycling of the past, with routes most of which take place on white roads with bicycles and clothing of the time.
The book, enriched by many illustrations, is perfect to approach this sport. The curious reader will surely be captured by the enthusiasm and vitality of the many "heroic protagonists" presented in this book.
