    Kindle Edition Ô Alpe dHuez eBook Ù alpe mobile, dhuez ebok, Alpe dHuez PDFThis was much better than the little bit of Vespini's The Tour is Won on the Alpe I read Cossins uses the 1976 Tour's ascent of Alpe d'Huez to begin each chapter and then takes on topical approaches to exploring the climb and how it achieved its place in Tour history I also appreciated his counter argument to Vespini's claim that the Tour is won on the Alpe as I had been contemplating writing such a critiue myself

    Kindle Edition Ô Alpe dHuez eBook Ù alpe mobile, dhuez ebok, Alpe dHuez PDFWell written but uite narrowly focussed At times it feels repetitive and at others majestic with sweeping energised passages of a stage in the tour or interesting interviews with some key riders in this Alpe’s history

    Kindle Edition Ô Alpe dHuez eBook Ù alpe mobile, dhuez ebok, Alpe dHuez PDFGood book about a great TdF climb The little intro to each chapter would’ve been better served just being a chapter themselves rather than being tagged into the start of each chapter Other than that a good read

    Kindle Edition Ô Alpe dHuez eBook Ù alpe mobile, dhuez ebok, Alpe dHuez PDFThe content is good but I found the style of presentation hard to read The way that the epic 1976 duel is split over many chapters I found annoying and too much detail in the end Not one of the great books of cycling literature but I admire the author for tackling such a narrow subject as just the one hill climb from the Tour de France's great selection and telling it's story

    Kindle Edition Ô Alpe dHuez eBook Ù alpe mobile, dhuez ebok, Alpe dHuez PDFAn entertaining book on cycling's greatest climb Cossins does a great job explaining why a climb that is comparatively unremarkable to other famous Tour de France has gained so much in importance and stature Many of the stages up Alpe D'Huez are detailed across the chapters and are interspersed with bits of local history on the development of the resort and the surrounding area A feature I really enjoyed was the ongoing narrative of the epic battle between Joop Zoetemelk and Lucien Van Impe from 1976 the year the Alpe became a recurring feature in TdF's to come Presented in italics at the start of each chapter their duel up the mountain is detailed pedal by pedal and turn by turn to get at the heart of just how the legend was born Written with details any cyclist would appreciate the writing is free and flowin

    Kindle Edition Ô Alpe dHuez eBook Ù alpe mobile, dhuez ebok, Alpe dHuez PDFEach chapter of the book opens with a lengthy retelling of the 1976 Alpe d'Huez stage when Van Impe took the jersey and Zoetemelk the stage in a 2 up sprint distancing Thevenet and dispossessing the jersey holder Martens The book discusses other years most noticeably a lengthy account by Andy Hampsten of his own win and interviews with Van Impe and a very sympathetic profile of Zotemelk mixed with some history of the resort and of the ancient mining in the area it's geography including a description of the climb and an examination of the link between the race and the Netherlands including a profile of the radio commentator who did much to forge that link Ultimately a badly organised book though the 1977 stage when Thevenet just held on to his jersey under pressure from Kuiper is described 3 or times twice in almost identical details Clearly the author decided to avoid a year by year coverage like The Tour Is Won on the Alpe Alpe d'Huez and the Classi
