"Tour de France Records 2013" is the latest in Carlton Books' million-selling "World Records" series. Delving into the world of the Tour de France, the biggest and most glamorous of all cycling races, this volume highlights the great battles for the Yellow (Maillot Jaune - the race leader), Polka-dot (King of the Mountains), Green (Sprint Points leader), White (young rider), Red (Lanterne Rouge - red lamp or last rider) and other Jerseys since the race began in 1903. There are also hundreds of stories and statistics on the legendary riders: famous teams and high mountains which have helped to make the Tour de France one of the most exciting and popular sports spectacles in the world. The stories, features, lists and table are brought to life by fantastic action photography. All fans of Le Grand Boucle (the great loop, because the Tour always encircles France - with a few stages in adjoining countries - in a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction) will love "Tour de France Records 2013", and feel confident about winning any argument about this epic sporting challenge after reading through it from cover to cover.
