A collaboration between Graham Watson and Roberto Bettini, two of international road racing's leading photographers, Cycling 2004 chronicles one of the most competitive seasons in the history of the sport. Featuring exceptional images on every page, the book starts with Milan-San Remo and ends, like the season itself, with Wielrennen Zolder. It's all here - the ten World Cup classics, the three big European tours (Giro d'Italia, Tour de France, and Vuelta a Espana), along with the World Road Championships and a full sampling of other important races that form the nine-month-long cycling season each year. Endorsed by the international Cyclists Union in Italy, Cycling 2004 also contains a results section listing top finishers for every European road race, as well as racer and team statistics and memorable photographs of top cyclists in action. Noted sports journalist Pier Bergonzi adds informed text and captions.
