Great summary from the best photographer of the TDF, Graham Watson. Insights into travel tips, tour recommendations, classic stages and climbs, legendary tour participants and history of the tour. Filled with Graham's great photo's to make for a visually appealing read. Not necessarily the best travel guide but a great resource for anyone seriously considering to see the TDF first hand. Also includes insights into Grahams photographic techniques for capturing this majestic sport.
I enjoyed reading the book as a planning reference for a future trip to watch the tour. I especially liked the comments on other things to see and do in the various regions of France and as a photographer I appreciated the tips on taking pictures of the riders to memorialize the trip. I would recommend this book to build a reference library for anyone planning a trip to watch, as Bob Roll would say it, the "Tour-day-France".
Lots of great tips & interesting information about the tour history. Places to watch the tour, how to get around, where to stay...all explored.
