A definitive account of Tom Simpson, one of the sport's greatest cyclists

Tom Simpson was an Olympic medalist, a world champion cyclist, and the first Briton to wear the fabled yellow jersey of the Tour de France. He died a tragic early death on the barren moonscape of the Mont Ventoux during the 1967 Tour, and fans continue to make the pilgrimage to the windswept memorial that marks the spot where he died. A man of contradictions, Simpson was one of the first cyclists to admit to using banned drugs and was accused of fixing races. Yet the dapper "Major Tom" inspired awe and affection for his obsessive will to win, which ultimately cost him his life. This book will revisits the places and people associated with Simpson to produce the definitive story of Britain's greatest ever cyclist.
